Annette Bening lands a role in Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel Teaser Trailer Brie Larson Promises to Bring the Superheroes Back and We Can't Keep Calm

Captain Marvel's cast continues to grow, with Annette Bening now being the latest star to join the upcoming MCU film. Though her role is still under Kree-strength lock and key, T.H.R. notes that she might be playing a scientist of sorts.

This would mark Bening's first foray in the superhero universe, a giant stride away from her preferred indie-movie mode. Reporter Justin Kroll has tweeted a post that claims that the actress will most likely play the role of Carol Danvers' mother. Set in the 1990s, the film focuses on Carol Danvers, a U.S. Air Force pilot whose DNA gets mixed with that of the alien species leading to her becoming a superhero. Reprising their roles from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy are Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond) and Lee Pace (The Book of Henry), and returning once again to a Marvel Studios film will be Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.
