On the most recent episode of Meet The Movie Press, Mark Reilly of The Schmoes Know claimed that he’s heard from sources that Emily Blunt has locked down a deal to play Captain Marvel in the character’s upcoming solo film.
Now, it’s important to note that the show’s co-host, El Mayimbe, claims that Blunt’s casting doesn’t seem too probable, given that the studio hasn’t even found a director yet. Of course, without any official confirmation, it’s impossible to know who’s right.
