A new Marvel villain has been found.
Zawe Ashton is said to appear as the villain in “Captain Marvel 2”.
An official confirmation is still pending.
New villain: In the upcoming superhero blockbuster “Captain Marvel 2”, the opponent for Brie Larson is apparently found. Anonymous sources are said to have revealed to the industry magazine “Deadline” that the next villain will be played by the English actress Zawe Ashton. However, so far, neither Disney nor Marvel have wanted to officially confirm this.
Ashton has appeared in the British series “Fresh Meat” and also on Broadway in “Betrayal” alongside Tom Hiddleston, who has appeared as Loki in several Marvel films. Brie Larson, who plays Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, won an Oscar and a Golden Globe for her role in “Space”.
“Captain Marvel 2” should be released in November 2022
As the magazine reported last summer, Nia DaCosta is to direct. The script was written by Megan McDonnell.
The predecessor, “Captain Marvel”, released in 2019, grossed a little less than a billion euros worldwide.
The release of the new Marvel flick is expected in November 2022.

Christian Bale will appear in “Thor: Love and Thunder” from May 6, 2022 as the villain Gorr the God Butcher. Groot from “Guardians of the Galaxy” is to get his own series of short films with “I Am Groot”. In 2022 there will also be a “
The Guardians of the Galaxy Holiday Special” at Disney +.
Black Panther 2, which will be directed by Ryan Coogler, is slated to open on July 8, 2022. Disney confirmed also that the late Chadwick Boseman will not be replaced by another actor. Instead, they will “explore the world of Wakanda and the rich characters introduced in the first film.”
