Beyond Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, it’s unclear who will star in the sequel. Marvel Studios’ WandaVision will introduce Teyonah Parris as older version of Monica Rambeau. Monica was played by Akira Akbar in Captain Marvel. Additionally, Ben Mendelsohn and Sharon Blynn briefly reprised their roles as Talos and Soren in Spider-Man: Far From Home. That film also revealed that Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury is somewhere in space on a Skrull ship.

Captain Marvel 2 is currently slated to hit theaters on July 8, 2022. However, Marvel hasn’t set a date for the film to begin production.
