SCOOP: Gwendoline Christie Under Consideration for MCU Role
Written By Mikey Sutton • Editor-in-Chief • Owner
Captain Marvel is surrounded.
When a military base she is investigating is revealed to actually be a hive of evil Skrulls, they begin their assault. They blast her with high-tech alien weaponry as she punches them across the building, but their numbers quickly double and triple, a large mass of green bodies lunging at her. Nova soars inside, only to be pummeled by a Super-Skrull with the abilities of Spider-Man. They, too, become wrapped in a loud and explosive clash of cosmic power and physical strength. And just when Captain Marvel believes she is nearing victory, a royally garbed Skrull with an intimidating 6′3″ frame swiftly grabs her throat and holds her aloft like a trophy.
While that is simply a vision of what Captain Marvel 2 could be like, the elements are based on what has leaked and I reported on thus far - Skrull Invasion!, the Super-Skrull, Spider-Man, and Veranke, the Skrull Queen.
This morning a source messaged me and revealed that Gwendoline Christie of Game of Thrones fame was being looked at for a role, or perhaps more than one, at Marvel Studios. I then spoke to one insider who told me that Christie is under consideration for Veranke. No contract negotiations have begun yet, and nobody is saying that Christie has even been approached. Many fans were let down that Christie didn't have enough screen time as Captain Phasma in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi despite all the Star Wars hype. That would certainly unlikely to happen at Marvel Studios, whether she is Veranke or not.
