With so many rumours about the much-anticipated villain in Captain Marvel 2 arising, who will end up battling with the strongest? The OG Rogue Anna Paquin? Or a new one in Dakota Fanning?
It is no secret that Captain Marvel 2 is in the works. Scheduled to be a part of phase 5 of MCU, there’s so much that is being speculated about it. The one thing that we cannot wait to know is who is going to be the antagonist – the very archnemesis of the eternally powerful Captain Marvel. The latest rumours around the movie is the entry of X-men’s character Rogue. And who other than Dakota Fanning Rogue Enough To Take On Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel 2?
Before we go on to discuss that, let’s just say there is a lot more that is going to happen in the sequel of Captain Marvel.
Say hi to an all-powerful A-Force. This all-female Avengers team has been in the comics since 2015. It is only more exciting to get it on the silver screen with the next instalment of Captain Marvel. As the female saviours teamed up in Avengers: Endgame, it was only a moment of time before the fandom would have expected to see them in other MCU standalone. Thank you, Captain Marvel 2. A female version of Nova will probably help Captain Marvel set up the A-Force.
Furthermore, Marvel and Kevin Fiege have expressed their interest in involving Jane Foster’s Female Thor in Captain Marvel 2. Good news for Natalie Portman’s fans!
However, the role of the villain has been much in discussion. Several Marvel fanatics have expressed their desire to see Dakota Fanning as X-Men’s character Rogue. But can it really happen?
Going Rogue, are we?
Reports from Mikey Stutton of Superhero Buzz reveal that one of the X-Men characters would be playing the adversary of Captain Marvel. Director Kevin Fiege is reviewing if Rogue – a member of the mutant terrorist group in the comic – could be the very main villain that Captain Marvel 2 needs. However, to avoid clashing with Fox plots, Rogue would not be coming with the known terrorist groups.
Anna Paquin who plays the role of Rogue in X-Men might not be playing it for Captain Marvel 2. Rogue would be the first X-Men character to have been introduced in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Disney acquired Fox.
What if Fiege gives in to the desire of thousands?
Dakota Fanning has earlier starred in movies like Twilight and others. She has also given her voice to a younger Wonder Woman. Kevin Fiege has many times expressed his fondness for Rogue as an X-Men character.
With her badass personality, Dakota Fanning is bound to justify the role of Rogue. Being the member of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, she will be bringing evil to the second instalment of Captain Marvel, if the rumours were to be true. In a battle between the mutant terrorist and the strongest superhero of them all, who is going to save the earth?
Nova And Captain together?
Beth Rider, Richard Rider’s daughter, would be playing Nova. Rumour has it that there might be a romance kindling between her and Captain. And like every time when things are twisted, it will be just like that. Talonar is rumoured to be the villain. With the powers of the Darkhawk, he is Richard Rider’sbrother Robbie in the comics. This naturally makes him Beth’s uncle.
Well, this one’s just a theory, so let’s take it lightly.
However, the rumours about Rogue entering the MCU are very much true. And the cherry on the cake would be Dakota Fanning against Brie Larson in Captain Marvel 2.
