Production on Captain Marvel 2 is set to get underway this summer and it looks like casting for the sequel is now underway! According to a report from the Illuminderi, actress Zawe Ashton is being considered for what is described as a “strong African-American” role. Ashton has been rumored to be on Marvel Studios list in the past, including a role in Loki.
The report doesn’t indicate what role Ashton would be up for and there are absolutely no plot details availablebut with Carol Danvers, Kamala Khan and Monica Rambeau all in the mix, it’s more likely to be a villainous turn for the actress, perhaps as someone like Karl Sofen, aka Moonstone. Ashton made a name for herself in the TV series Fresh Meat and, more recently, Not Safe for Work.
Captain Marvel 2, directed by Nia DaCosta and written by Megan McDonnell, is set for a November 11, 2022 release.
