We all know the hardwired Gospel of Superhero movie— A powerful superhero needs a powerful supervillain to make a powerful movie. While the title of the movie gives away the superhero’s name, the villain is the real winner of all fan-page discussions.
As Brie Larson and Captain Marvel 2 are gearing up for Marvel Phase 5, a new name is joining all the rumours around the movie, Dakota Fanning. Will Dakota be a comrade? Or will she be the antagonist? But where does that leave rumoured X-Men character, the all-powerful mutant Rogue?
- Who will Brie Larson fight in Captain Marvel 2?
- Carol Danvers vs Rogue
- Incoming: Dakota Fanning
An article titled ‘Which actress should star in Marvel’s first female superhero movie’, takes one back to the time when there was a dearth of stand-alone female superhero movies. Now, Marvel has opened up its doors to not only women superheroes, but also LGBTQ superheroes. In fact, with Marvel’s Phase 4 and 5, fans might get an all-female superhero movie in which not only the protagonist but also the antagonist is a female.
Captain Marvel 2: Who will Brie Larson fight?
Recently, Captain Marvel 2 moved a step ahead in the future as Marvel Studios filed the LLC for the movie. This move also formally ensured Brie Larson would be stepping into Captain Marvel’s shoes yet again. While we know a lot about Captain Marvel 2, there is a valued piece of information that is still concealed. Who will Brie Larson fight in Captain Marvel 2?
If we give into ongoing rumours, a character from X-Men will be coming into this Phase 5 movie. Incoming: Rogue.
Rogue is an Evil Mutant who has the ability to absorb superpowers from whoever she touches.
Carol Danvers vs Rogue
Kevin Feige is eager to bring in X Men’s Rogue to fight against Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel. Especially now that MCU has the right to cast X-Men, the makers are probably planning all the creative ways in which the mutants can be introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Hence, there’s a high possibility that we might see Rouge as the primary antagonist in Captain Marvel 2.
But what would a Captain Marvel vs Rogue fight look like if the Mutant really makes it to Captain Marvel 2? This might give you an idea —
Captain Marvel 2: Dakota Fanning and Brie Larson
Currently, Anna Paquin is the face associated with Rogue’s character in the X-men world. But now that Disney has bought the rights from Fox, we might (or might not) see some major changes in the mutant’s faces. It sure will be a difficult deal to crack since the on-screen X-Men are already a famous and widely popular group.
On the other hand, fans are vouching to see Dakota Fanning as the face of X-Men’s Rogue if the character is portrayed in Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel 2. It surely would be a fitting choice as prior to Captain Marvel 2, Dakota Fanning has given many good performances.
Dakota Going Rogue
The young actress recently appeared in the Quentin Tarantino movie, ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’. If Dakota Fanning makes it to Captain Marvel 2 alongside Brie Larson, this will not be the first time we see her in a superhero-like movie. In 2009, she perfected the role of Cassie Holmes in the action/thriller movie ‘Push’. Dakota is an actress we can bank upon whenever MCU plans to introduce X-Men’s Rogue— sooner, against Brie Larson in Captain Marvel 2, or later, in a possible Marvel Phase 6 movie meant specifically for X-Men.
Do you think Rogue would be the first among the mutants to join MCU? If no, which one among the X-Men do you want to see first? Additionally, do you see Dakota Fanning in an antagonist role against Brie Larson in Captain Marvel 2? Share your views in the comments section below.
