Zawe Ashton has been revealed to be playing the villain in Nia DaCosta’s upcoming Marvel film, Captain Marvel 2.
The film will see Brie Larson reprising her role of Carol Danvers and will see the film debuts of two MCU characters introduced on the television series: Teyonah Parris’ Monica Rambeau (WandaVision) and Iman Vellani’s Kamala Khan / Ms. Marvel (Ms. Marvel).
