While the fans are waiting to hear about the cast to play for the role of Carol Danvers in the upcoming movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe ''Captain Marvel,'' the rest of the cast is finalised for the movie. The movie is expected to be released on Mar 8, 2019. Benedict Cumberbatch might play the role of ''Doctor Strange.'' 

Emily Blunt, Natalie Dormer, Rebecca Ferguson, Katee Sackhoff, Charlize Theron, Katheryn Winnick, Bryce Dallas-Howard, Sienna Miller and Maika Monroe are the strong contenders for this role. Wegotthiscovered talked about the complete cast of this movie. Marvel studios scrapped the cameo appearance of the role of Carol Danvers in ''Avengers: Age of Ultron.''

Kevin Feige, the American film producer and president of Marvel Studios has talked about his plans for the  character of Carol Danvers in details. ''There won't be any announcements about that this year. I think right now we're scripting the film, figuring out who we want Carol Danvers to be, and really what the structure of the movie will be and what her part will be in some of our other Phase 3 films. And it would be next year that we start to really think about casting."

"We always have a clear sense of who we want to cast and who we're interested in. We have amazing casting directors - Sarah Finn, who's been with us since Iron Man - but at the same time, when a fan list comes out'' stated  Jeremy Latcham, the producer of Marvel Studios confirmed.  ''We read [the cast suggestions], we go through it, we read the comments, we look at who people like. Sometimes it's really enlightening. Sometimes it's the exact same person that they've been saying over and over again that we don't think is right. It's always fun to kinda go through it and see what people are up to" Latcham added further.

Lawyerherald talked about the twelve actresses which are being considered for the role of Carol Danvers. The list remains pretty much the same. Jessica Chastain is another addition to that list. There are several fan theories which have been speculating about the possibility of different actresses to be cast for this role.

If the rumors are to be belived, Benedict Cumberbatch is all set to play the role of Doctor Strange. Ant-Man's role will be played by Paul Rudd and Black Panther's role by Chadwick Boseman in ''Captain Marvel.''

Benedict Cumberbatch is playing the role of Stephen Strange / Doctor Strange in the upcoming Marvel movie ''Doctor Strange.'' The movie will be released on Nov. 4, 2016. So he turned out to be the obvious choice for the same character in ''Captain Marvel'' too.
