The coronavirus pandemic may have pushed back the MCU film lineup, but Marvel continues to make plans for the future. The latest being the casting of Zawe Ashton in Captain Marvel 2.
The actress is set to play the main villain in the film currently scheduled to release November 11, 2022. With the film industry continuing to be in a state of flux due to COVID-19, that date while over a year away could easily shift.
Zawe Ashton known for her work in films like Velvet Buzzsaw and Greta joins already announced cast-members Iman Vellani, Teyonah Parris, and of course Brie Larson. Nia DaCosta takes over directing duties for the sequel, with Megan McDonnell responsible for penning the script.
