Marvel Has Scripts For MS MARVEL And BLADE Reboot?
THR recently broke news concerning Marvel's plans for Avengers 3. They also broke the first real confirmation that Marvel is actually pursuing a Ms Marvel (Captain Marvel) film with a script already developed. A new Blade script is mentioned as well. It's a bit of a surprise since the character is best known for being an R-rated genre based franchise. While Thor's Idris Elba (Pacific Rim) has voiced his interest in playing the daywalker in future films. Strange, Black Panther and Iron Fist are still also in development. The former confirmed as a contender for Phase Three alongside Ant-Man and Avengers 3. It's unknown at this point if Panther, Ms Marvel or Iron Fist will end up making the cut, allowing for more sequels. A Guardians sequel and new Hulk film are strong possible candidates for Phase Three as well.
There had been previous talk of the role being linked to Emily Blunt and Ruth Wilson (Lone Ranger, Luther). Along with old rumblings that Alice Eve (Star Trek Into Darkness) might also be in the running.
