Gemma Chan Cast in MCU’s “Captain Marvel”

With Black Panther seeing outstanding box office success and breaking barriers, Marvel fans are eagerly anticipating another hero who will hopefully do the same. According to Deadline, Gemma Chan will be joining the cast of the much anticipated MCU film Captain Marvel.  The actress will reportedly play Minn-Erva (Dr. Minerva) in the movie. While plot details remain a secret, comic readers likely know Minn-Erva as a Kree-born spy. Chan has previously appeared in 2014’s Jack Reacher: Shadow Recruit and 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as the titular character also known as Carol Danvers.

Captain Marvel is set to arrive in theaters March 8th, 2019
