Captain Marvel Is Going Rogue
Now that Captain Marvel 2 is officially under production, a rumour is slowly starting to seem like a reality. According to this rumour’s source who heard it through “several inside circles”, the main villain in Captain Marvel 2 would be from the recently acquired X Men. This villain, Rogue, will be a part of a mutant terrorist group that Carol Danvers will be fighting against.
Spoiler Alert: It’s all in the comics!
Ever since Rogue’s name has cropped up, it is fans’ belief that Captain Marvel 2 will see two more X Men characters. All these characters were last seen together in the 1980’s comic book ‘The Uncanny X-Men’ by Chris Claremont. At that time, Carol Danvers was Ms Marvel. In the Claremont era, the writer introduced two characters whom he brought into X-Men: Mystique and Rogue.
To weave the multiple characters in the storyline, Claremont made Mystique turn from Ms Marvel’s adversary into an X-Men adversary. But this preceded an event that changed Carol Danvers’ life forever. Rogue absorbed Carol Danvers’ powers! What follows might be a possible plot for Captain Marvel 2.
Captain Marvel 2 Plot: Ms Marvel Vs These Two Mutants
In Marvel comics, the bridge between Ms Marvel and Mystique starts to rupture with a prophecy. Mystique is in a loving relationship with another mutant, Destiny and the couple has an adopted daughter, Rogue. While Destiny is blind, she has the ability to see into the future.
Destiny foretells Mystique that Carol Danvers will cause pain to Rogue. With this piece of information, Mystique decides to kill Carol but Rogue (who overheard the prophecy) decides to take care of the problem herself. Still a teenager, Rogue hatches a dangerous plan and sets out to execute it by absorbing Carol Danvers’ powers. This act puts a scar on both Carol and Rogue who become arch-enemies.
Wouldn’t such a gripping plot be the best way to introduce X-Men into MCU?
Do you think Captain Marvel 2 should introduce Rogue, Mystique and Destiny with Marvel Phase 5?
Jennifer Lawrence might join Brie Larson in Captain Marvel 2
Jennifer Lawrence has perfected Mystique’s on-screen role in the mutant universe. Fans have seen her mutant character grow through her portrayal of it. But will Marvel re-cast her in the role after Disney and Fox merger?
Just like Henry Cavill is in talks for Wolverine’s role and Dakota Fanning might enter MCU in Rogue’s shoes, Jennifer Lawrence might also be cast as Mystique in Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel 2. The actress is already a big name in Hollywood with many big awards under her belt. It would be a big boost for the Marvel Phase 5 movie if Jennifer Lawrence joins the MCU team. In fact, with Brie Larson and Jennifer Lawrence in Captain Marvel 2, the movie might actually break ‘Avengers: Endgame’s top-grossing record.
