With the amount of new comic book movies that Marvel are bringing our way over the next few years, it is no surprise that we are hearing a number of rumours about which stars are going to play which characters, on which project. One of the most eagerly anticipated Marvel movies coming our way, is that of Captain Marvel, which has fans around the world very excited.
We have already seen a number of Hollywood names being linked to the possibility of playing the lead role of Carol Danvers in the Captain Marvel movie, with the likes of Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow), and Ronda Rousey (The Expendables 3) all being linked to playing the character. Now though, it seems that there is another name we can add to that list.
British actress Sienna Miller has been promoting her new movie Burnt, when she admitted that, while she does not actually know anything about the character, she would jump at the chance to play Carol Danvers in the Captain Marvel movie. It is no surprise really, since pretty much any actor or actress on the planet would love to land a role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
With that said, it is unlikely that Sienna Miller is going to get much backing from the comic book fans around the world, although she has struck up a close relationship with actor Bradley Cooper, who is the voice of Rocket Raccoon in the Marvel movie Guardians of the Galaxy. Could Bradley put in a good word for Sienna? We guess we will just have to wait and see.
The Captain Marvel movie is aiming for a March 8, 2019 release date.
