Next Captain Marvel movie is The Marvels

The Captain Marvel sequel definitely appears to be heading in a different direction than we initially expected, though there's an awful lot of excitement to see Carol Danvers assemble on screen alongside Monica Rambeau/Spectrum and Ms. Marvel. This team-up promises to be one for the ages, and it's widely believed the three superHERoes will be taking on the Kree.

Emily Blunt, Dwayne Johnson interview

While Johnson sees Black Adam as the culmination of his career, Blunt is uninterested in comic book films. “I really understand that [superhero movies] are like a religion for a lot of people,” she says. “They don’t appeal to me in the same way. I don’t have this burning desire to play a superhero.” While Johnson has been shooting Black Adam, Blunt has been shooting a Western for the BBC called The English, which Amazon will release in the U.S. She plays an aristocratic woman who’s seeking revenge for her son’s death and befriends a Pawnee warrior. “It’s about love and revenge and race and history,” she says.
