Marvel Studios seems to be quite busy casting for its upcoming Captain Marvel sequel. We got the reveal that they are currently looking to cast the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of Blue Marvel. Now, we got another revelation about an iconic Marvel character joining the film that kind of conflicts with the before-mentioned Blue Marvel reveal. That Hashtag Show believes that the role, which is described as a supporting male role between 20 to 30 years of age, will turn out to be Michael Korvacs.
They reference that the casting looking for a Michael B. Jordan or Jon Boyega type actor also included Timothy Chalamet for reference. As such, they’ve heard that the character will be one of the multiple villains, like Zawe Aston. He will have a supporting role throughout the film before turning out to be the main threat, Michael Korvac. It looks like he was part of the original script written by Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck, and Nicole Perlman before Megan McDonnell rewrote it.
In the comics, Korvac was from the alternate universe Earth-691, where he was turned into a cyborg by the alien race Badoon. They are the same race that we saw alongside Ronan in Guardians of the Galaxy. His transformation has given him the ability to absorb any energy. He even absorbed Galactus’ cosmic energy at one point, which made him a dangerous existence in the multiverse. He would make for a formidable foe for Captain Marvel to face, as we haven’t seen her get pushed to her limits yet. It does conflict with the Blue Marvel news, so we’ll have to take it with a grain of salt for now.
