Got a hot tip that Rebecca Ferguson, who is UBERHOT at the moment coming off Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is at the top of Marvel’s list to play Captain Marvel.
Now at press time I’m not sure if talks have taken place or if an offer has been made.
However, here is a clue…
Last month she took herself out of the running to be the female lead in Gambit. Instead, she chose to play Anna in the Tate Taylor directed adaptation of Paula Hawkins novel The Girl On The Train with Emily Blunt.
Could she be considering the bigger fish instead over at the MCU?
I know Marvel and I especially know they chase HEAT. Ferguson was mighty impressive and the genuine surprise of the summer as the British Agent in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
This story is developing and pending further confirmation.
I will report back as I learn more.
Fun little scoop nonetheless.
