For months, rumors have been suggesting hat Marvel wants Angelina Jolie to direct the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. Now, OK Magazine (via Yahoo) is reporting that Charlize Theron is being considered by Marvel to play the title character.
A source said: “Marvel has been courting Angie to direct the project and Charlize is a clear fan favorite for the starring role. If Charlize were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her new pal.”
Who knows if this story has some legitamcy, or if people are playing off of the real life friendship between Theron and Jolie. The only thing that can be confirmed is Captain Marvel will be released on July 6, 2018.
