Natalie Portman Hinting MS MARVEL And BLACK PANTHER Films Coming Soon?
During an interview with SciFiNow actress Natalie Portman hinted about future Marvel projects. She revealed the studio is working on female led film (Ms Marvel?) and one focusing on a non-white title character. There has been talk from numerous outlets and even Marvel about the developing of both Black Panther and Ms Marvel films over the last couple of years. According to outlets both projects currently have scripts written. Not to mention casting rumors linking Emily Blunt (Looper, Edge of Tomorrow, The Wolfman), Ruth Wilson (Saving Mr. Banks, Lone Ranger, Anna Karenina, Luther) and possibly Katee Sackhoff for Carol Danvers. Even more actors have been linked for T'Challa over the last two years. However, this is the first time that a Marvel cast member has revealed possible plans for unannounced films that weren't spin-offs of their own character (Black Widow/War Machine).
"There are definitely many strong women, but it will be exciting when there is a central female character which I think is coming – I have heard is coming – and, of course, also a central non-white character will also be exciting. Title characters."
