Screw all that mess! What I’m wondering is if she will play the sun godessherself…Monica Rambeau aka Photon who lead the Avengers, was a member of the Mighty Avengers and later the Ultimates, dated both Dr. Voodoo and Blue Marvel? Is she playing that sistah?! Cause I’m freaking out over here! I dont know about you but my interest in Captain Marvel just moved from not giving a damn to intrigued as f***k!
