Captain Marvel has added another stellar name to its cast. Annette Bening is joining the film in an undisclosed role.
The Hollywood Reporter describes Bening’s character as a scientist while Variety’s Justin Kroll says Bening will play the mother of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson).

Regardless of the role, Bening, a four-time Oscar® nominee is an outstanding addition to this cast. If I had my preference, though, Bening would be playing Helen Cobb, a friend and mentor to Danvers (who also makes a villain turn, but the MCU can skip that).
Captain Marvel is currently in production and hits theaters March 8, 2019.
