(UPDATE) RUMOR: MS. MARVEL Headed To The Big Screen? They Have A Script?

Marvel apparently has a Ms. Marvel film script and will be making announcements about Phase 2 in the coming weeks according to Joe Quesada at the Cup O’ Joe panel at Kapow! Comic Con 2012.

Follow Mark:
By Mark Julian - 5/22/2012
According to Abby Chandler of Badhaven, Marvel's Joe Quesada stated that a script for Ms. Marvel is complete and that the film will be looking for a leading lady. As reported---

A script for a Ms/Captain Marvel movie is ready to go. They just needed an actress. Marvel are having a meeting in a couple of weeks and will be ready to announce some films then … He said we’d be pleasantly surprised.


This news definitely puts the reinvention of Carol Danvers by Kelly Sue DeConnick in a whole new light. Is the current comic design an indication of what we may see on the big screen some day?

What do you guys think, up for a solo Ms. Marvel film then seeing her fight next to Cap, Iron Man and Thor in Avengers 2? Joss Whedon has previously stated that he wants more female heroes in Avengers 2 and in a poll conducted on CBM not too far back, Ms. Marvel won out over original Avengers member Janet Pym aka The Wasp.







Update: Our own Josh Wilding attended this panel and assures me that Quesada said no such thing during the panel. The reporter supposedly spoke with Quesada off panel and despite a corroborating report from AICN, the specific statements regarding a script and Ms. Marvel have yet to be confirmed by other sources. Don't be surprised if Quesada makes a statement denying this.

Nice. Would love to see her in an Avengers sequel.
marvel72 - 5/22/2012, 5:00 AM
excellent,we get a ms.marvel film before wonder woman.

warner/dc get your act together,marvel is owning your ass.
DaenerysTargaryen - 5/22/2012, 5:04 AM
WOW....Ms.Marvel before Wonder Woman. WB sucks.

Back on topic: Yeah I'd be down for a Ms.Marvel film. We need a good female superhero movie
Frogman - 5/22/2012, 5:06 AM
I really hope she's Ms. Marvel and not Captain Marvel, that new design sucks bad.

@marvel72: Wonder Woman is a very different character based around Gods and mythology so it's not like if DC made Wonder Woman that it'd be anything like Ms. Marvel.
RunDTC - 5/22/2012, 5:06 AM
as long as they a) get a good actress and b) use her normal costume, I'm game.
marvelmaniaco - 5/22/2012, 5:07 AM
Red hood ms marvel is not a mutant :) dont worry her origins should be all good on film

And this will be a great film time to see a woman beat up some dudes lol
Superheromovie - 5/22/2012, 5:07 AM
@RedHood89: No she was never a mutant.
kooldeath - 5/22/2012, 5:09 AM
@ Red.. no she's not a mutant . You are thinking of Rouge ,when she stole all of Ms. Marvels Powers permanently. back in the 90's . Ms. Marvel got her powers from the Kree, tho I forgot how she got them. I still don't know why or how they took the powers from Rouge ...

Was this the secret project they filmed ? I heard a movie was all done already.. but nothing on what it was about.

And I was the actress that Sarah on Chuck could play Ms. Marvel.. seems like she would be the perfect fit for the role.
Ha1frican - 5/22/2012, 5:09 AM
This would play right into my script for Uncanny X-Men that's set a few years in the future and has Rogue with all of Marvel's powers lol
Jolt17 - 5/22/2012, 5:11 AM
Alright, I know about the character not much, but I'm all for Marvel's Phase 2. I'll also be glad to learn about her a lot. I have to say, though, that Warner Bros./DC Comics are pretty pathetic at this point...Ms. Marvel getting a movie treatment while Wonder Woman doesn't, oh well.
Ha1frican - 5/22/2012, 5:12 AM
@Frogman I think her point was we get a pretty obscure female character in a feature film before one that basically everyone knows...
JoshWilding - 5/22/2012, 5:13 AM
I was at the Cup O' Joe panel - he said no such thing.
P862010 - 5/22/2012, 5:16 AM
if they want a big name actress

charlize theron
CrowPirate1 - 5/22/2012, 5:17 AM
I know they want to see a flying character fast, but the Wasp flies, and Wanda and her came before Ms. Marvel. but, eh.. I'll shut up. lol.. seems they are not following the Avengers timelines, nor the Ultimates either.

I'm just glad to have them up on the screen!!!

Howard the Duck was never an Avenger, right? just checking.... [facepalm] that just popped horribly into my mind.
marvel72 - 5/22/2012, 5:18 AM
@ frogman

i was on about getting a ms.marvel movie before an iconic character that is better know as in wonder woman,it would be like having a sentry movie before superman.
BlackWarrior - 5/22/2012, 5:22 AM
Carol Danvers was caught in an explosion and saved by Caption Marvel, the explosion caused some of his genes to fuse with hers making her ms.marvel.

whatevillurks - 5/22/2012, 5:24 AM
DC is getting destroyed. Bold move Marvel, trying to break the curse of the female superhero movie. There just better be a Black Panther movie coming down the pipeline.
Ha1frican - 5/22/2012, 5:26 AM
Wait guys check the excitement Josh posted that he was there andthat he didn't actually say that... o well...
Destroyer7 - 5/22/2012, 5:30 AM
Bring it!!!
theomegasanction - 5/22/2012, 5:30 AM
would like to see her in the next avengers movie
Guerillas - 5/22/2012, 5:34 AM
That´s great! hope it won´t suck
Tmachaveli - 5/22/2012, 5:35 AM
Dam this Marvel train keeps moving on
TheGuillotine - 5/22/2012, 5:46 AM
@Tea

Looks wise can't argue ANYTHING. But I don't know who she is ... runs to google ... see she has some experience. If she's a good actress I can think of no one who has the look more than her.
Hawksblueyes - 5/22/2012, 5:53 AM
I don't buy this for a second. Marvel already has at least three films that have yet to be announced that ARE NOT Ms Marvel. Joe Q is not, nor will he ever, be the man to make this announcement. If Fiege doesn't come out and make an official announcement about a movie, the first rumbling we will here about it is usually from a director or star.
Gmoney84 - 5/22/2012, 5:54 AM
@Cataract...I totally agree with you. It's typically the same 4 or 5 people posting all the news here and if you find something before them there articles ALWAYS outrank regardless of when it was time-stamped.
Gmoney84 - 5/22/2012, 5:56 AM
@Tea...good call on the Robbie chick. I don't really know anything about her...but I want to!!
EastcoastAvenger - 5/22/2012, 5:56 AM
Cataract - I briefly saw your article yesterday and tried to post but by the time I clicked the post comment button you were down. Curious...
EastcoastAvenger - 5/22/2012, 6:01 AM
I am eager to see how the Marvel suits will expand the MCU in the next few years. Not so excited for DC yet. DC/Warner get on the ball guys!
ChemicalGhost - 5/22/2012, 6:03 AM
They must get Charlize Theron! She was pretty awesome in Hancock!
Dedpool - 5/22/2012, 6:09 AM
Nice! Let's take her off planet for the first film, Abduct her give her powers and let her save the day. I think Blake Lively, Charlize Theron, Katie Cassidy, Amber Heard, Kristen Bell would work.
Rodimus9 - 5/22/2012, 6:19 AM
Captain Marvel first!!

Bring Ms. Marvel to the Big Screen & maybe we can get a proper, powerful Rogue story (should Marvel Studios get Rogue back from Fox)!


DukeAcureds - 5/22/2012, 6:22 AM
I hope this is so awesome and successful that WB HAS to make WW. I'd say that the success of The Avengers would have them do all the members of the Justice League and then a Justice League movie, but I can actually see them introduce all the other League members except for WW and then just introduce her in the JL movie. They'd actually do that. So support this film if you want a WW film.
Rodimus9 - 5/22/2012, 6:23 AM
Tea@ how about Evangelie for mrs. Marvel?

FUBLU - 5/22/2012, 6:31 AM
Don't wanna get too far ahead of myself and I hate to make the comparison but, I feel as though when it comes to her costume, MARVEL should seriously consider using the same tech that was used in GREEN LANTERN for her costume.

I'm a little concerned about the whole Captain Marvel thing... he plays a major role in her origin story but, I wouldn't want him to outshine Carol.(Catch my drift)
Especially if they took a page from the Ultimate Universe Captain Marvel! Seeing dude transform had me GLUED to the book. COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN!
dahamma - 5/22/2012, 6:32 AM
too bad this is fake news :( I would love to see a Ms Marvel film. It would be marvels first female hero to get a film.
