The cast for Marvel’s upcoming female-led superhero adventure Captain Marvel has been filling out very nicely with a star-studded cast that includes Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, and Gemma Chan just to name a few. Now a report from THR confirms that four time Oscar nominee Annette Bening has joined the cast.
Annette Bening is a powerful actress whose acting credits include American Beauty, 20th Century Women, The Kids Are Alright and the list goes on. News of her casting is definitley a surprise to many because Bening usually avoids starring in big studio films so joining a project that’s apart of such a huge machine like Marvel/Disney must mean that the role (and the check) was worth an emphatic ‘Yes’.
Details on her character are being kept under wraps. The most we know is that she will be playing some type of scientist. Are you excited for this casting? What character do you think she is playing? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below.
