This month's issue of Glamour features actress Chloe Grace Moretz on the cover wearing a leather jacket that bears more than a passing resemblance to the uniform of Captain Marvel. We know what you're thinking - "That doesn't mean anything. It's just a cool-looking jacket." - and you're probably right. If nothing else, it's a strong indicator of the way comic books and superhero culture have become part of the mainstream.

But what if it's not just a cool jacket? Moretz certainly has star power - she's only 19 and she's already anchored several franchise films. She played Hit Girl in Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2, proving that even as a tween, she had superhero chops. At 20 (her age when Captain Marvel would likely start filming to make its March 8, 2019 release date), Moretz might push the boundaries of a credible military officer, but would give Marvel a star that could fill the role for a long time.

Move over, boys!
Move over, boys!

Moretz also certainly has superheroes on the brain. In 2014, Moretz told TotalFilm magazine (via The Hollywood Reporter) that she would "love to see a stronge female superhero in the Marvel system."

"It would be great to have more than even [Scarlett Johansson] because Black Widow was still ‘wear the spandex and push your boobs up, this is a man’s world."

Then again, Newsarama has our own long held theory as to who the role of Carol Danvers will go to. So it probably is just a jacket.

...Right?
