Whenever a new superhero is announced to appear in any given comic book movie franchise, a host of A-list names are always immediately linked to the role – and it was no different in the case of Captain Marvel AKA Marvel’s Carol Danvers. Of course, the role ultimately went to Oscar winner Brie Larson – and her eagerly-anticipated MCU movie will arrive on the big screen in 2019 – but it could have gone to any number of actresses, according to the rumour mill.

These five, however, seemed to come genuinely close to winning the role (and indeed could have, if the circumstances had been slightly different) – if the rumour mill is to be believed, that is. The actresses in question are as follows; Jessica Chastain (The Help, Zero Dark Thirty, Interstellar, The Martian), Bryce Dallas Howard (Lady in the Water, Spider-Man 3, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Jurassic World), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck, Dexter, 24: Live Another Day, The Handmaid’s Tale), Charlize Theron (The Cider House Rules, Monster, Hancock, Mad Max: Fury Road), and Emily Blunt (Edge of Tomorrow, Sicario, The Girl on the Train, A Quiet Place). Which one do you think would have been best-suited for the role of Captain Marvel? Would you have preferred any of them to Brie Larson?
