Theron, Jolie eyed for Captain Marvel
Hollywood divas Charlize Theron and Angelina Jolie have been linked to the next major Marvel comic book adaptation of Captain Marvel aka Carol Danvers.

Both actresses are apparently keen to be involved in such a ground-breaking project.
“Marvel has been courting Angie to direct the project, and Charlize is a clear fan favourite for the starring role,” an insider said. Theron, 39, is currently drawing rave reviews from <g data-gr-id="13">comic</g> book and sci-fi fans and critics as Imperator Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road.
The two Hollywood beauties have recently become friends after Theron started dating Sean Penn.
