Actress Lashana Lynch is in talks to replace DeWanda Wise in Captain Marvel following Wise's exit from the unnamed role due to scheduling conflicts with her role in the Netflix series She's Gotta Have It, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Common speculation was that Wise would be playing Monica Rambeau, the first woman in Marvel Comics to bear the name Captain Marvel, though this has not been confirmed. Lynch's casting may suggest that the role could indeed be Rambeau, who has expansive energy powers, and who has most recently gone by the codename Spectrum in comic books.
Lynch is best known for her roles on British television shows such as Still Star-Crossed and Brotherhood.
Captain Marvel is due out in theaters March 8, 2019.
