The role of Captain Marvel may have a new frontrunner. With actress such as Jessica Chastain, Bryce Dallas Howard, Katheryn Winnick and Charize Theron reportedly in the mix, Heroic Hollywood has stated (citing unnamed sources) that Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation star Rebecca Ferguson is in the lead for the role. The site added that no offer has been official extended but Marvel acknowledges that there are few hotter names in Hollywood at the moment and may be eager to take advantage. This is not the first comic-book movie that Ferguson has been connected with. She was reportedly considered for the lead female role in the upcoming film Gambit however, dropped out of the running for that role to make The Girl on The Train. Regardless of wither she is the new frontrunner it may be a while before any official casting announcement is made as Captain Marvel is not set to hit theaters until November 2, 2018
