“Am I in love? Absolutely. I’m in love with ancient philosophers, foreign painters, classic authors, and musicians who have died long ago. I’m a passionate lover. I fawn over these people. I have given them my heart and my soul. The trouble is, I’m unable to love anyone tangible. I have sacrificed a physical bond, for a metaphysical relationship. I am the ultimate idealistic lover.” - James Dean

So, they’re probably gonna cast Brie Larson, a twenty six year old, to play Captain Marvel.

The same character who was supposed to be a military officer, who then went on to a high ranked position at NASA, and was in a relationship with Rhodey in the comics, who is played by a 50+ actor?

And okay, I’m hearing a lot of 

“Yeah, but Marvel HAS to cast a younger actress to play Captain Marvel, for the longevity of the franchise!”

Okay. Fine. 

Tell that to the last headlining actors cast in Marvel movies, aka Paul Rudd (47), Benedict Cumberbatch (39), Chadwick Boseman, (39)….

Sensing a pattern here?
