10 Women Who Should Play Captain Marvel

Who Is Captain Marvel?

Our top 10 women who should play Captain Marvel continues…


Zoey Deutch

Very few people caught Vampire Academy this February, but those who did were treated to a firecracker performance from a relative unknown. Zoey Deutch has personality in spades and even acquitted herself pretty nicely in the fight sequences. At 19, she’s too young to play Carol Danvers right now… but she’ll be 24 by the time Captain Marvel actually comes out in 2018.


Nicole Beharie

If Nicole Beharie can make the ever-more-ridiculous plot turns in Sleepy Hollow feel believable, she should have no problem selling anything Marvel throws at her. Besides that, she’s an immensely likable actress who comes across as rugged enough to save the world (despite her petite 5’1″ frame) and fun enough to show us a good time while doing it.

Brie Larson in Short Term 12

Brie Larson’s ready for the big time and has been for years. She’s so good, she stole scenes in Don Jon with barely a word. All she needs is one Marvel-level project to launch her into the next level. Combine her believable heroism from Short Term 12 with her colorful attitude in Scott Pilgrim, and you’ve got the makings of a major superhero.

Saoirse Ronan in from Neil Jordan’s Byzantium

Saoirse Ronan’s characters tend to be on the quieter side, but Captain Marvel could just be the thing to bring her out of her shell. She’s already starred in a superhero movie, kind of. She played the titular super-soldier in Joe Wright’s Hanna, and she did a bang-up job of it. That toughness should serve her well as a Marvel lead.

After the jump, find the conclusion of our top 10 women who should play Captain Marvel, alongside the runners up that didn’t make our actress short list.
