Will movies like “Shazam” and “Wonder Woman” fast track Captain Marvel to the big screen?
The Marvel Studios executive has high praise for James Spader’s performance, and suggests Carol Danvers could beat Black Widow to a solo film.
Director Peter Segal’s planned big-screen take on DC Comics’ Shazam won’t ‘see the light of day any time soon,’ largely because of Man of Steel.
Even as a Marvel Studios executive acknowledges a “drumbeat” for a female-led superhero movie, mentioning Captain Marvel specifically,actress Katee Sackhoff reveals she’s had conversations with the studio …. about something.
A new report indicates that, in addition to the previously mentioned Doctor Strange, Iron Fist, Black Panther and Runaway projects, Marvel has scripts for a Blade reboot and a Captain Marvel feature.
DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns, who’s co-writing Warner Bros.’ long-developing Captain Marvel movie, assures fans “there’s always a possibility for Shazam.”
