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.
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.
