Charlize Theron And Angelina Jolie Circling Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel


The world of celebrity gossip is known for its reliance on exaggeration and even outright lies, but occasionally a piece of news is reported that we really want to believe. The latest example concerns an upcoming Marvel movie and two Hollywood heavyweights.

According to Yahoo!, OK! Magazine is reporting that Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie have been bonding over adoption, charity work, and their shared interest in Captain Marvel. While all those exclamation points undermine the integrity of this information somewhat, OK! did find an anonymous “insider” who was willing to elaborate. “Marvel has been courting Angie to direct the project and Charlize is a clear fan favourite for the starring role,” the mysterious source said. “If Charlize were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her new pal.”

For what it’s worth, Theron and Jolie’s significant others (Sean Penn and Brad Pitt) have some shared history, namely The Tree of Life. We like to imagine that these two couples are out having Marvel-fuelled double dates, but this seems doubtful. In any case, thanks to the recent success of Unbroken and Mad Max: Fury Road, Theron and Jolie are both in a prime position to dive even deeper into the mainstream. Only time will tell if it happens with Marvel.
