The sequel to the 2019 film, ‘Captain Marvel 2’ will be coming out in the year 2022 and will start its filming shortly.

Will Brie Larson jump ship to the DC extended universe from Marvel?
Neither the actress herself nor any Marvel executives have said anything regarding Brie Larson’s departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

If the reports are true, we will probably not see Brie Larson in a third instalment of ‘Captain Marvel’ but instead see her in a DC movie.
