'Captain Marvel' Is Adding Lashana Lynch to the Cast!

Lashana Lynch is set to replace DeWanda Wise in Captain Marvel!

The 30-year-old Still Star-Crossed actress is in final negotiations for the role, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed on Friday (March 16).

DeWanda was forced to drop out of the production due to scheduling conflicts with shooting the second season of Spike Lee and Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are directing the studio’s first female-fronted superhero standalone film, which stars Brie Larson.

Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn will also star in the film, which is set in the 1990s.

The movie will be released on March 8, 2019.
