ThatHashtagShow has a new rumor for Captain Marvel stating that a character breakdown could be teasing that Rick Jones is joining the film.
Rick Jones is an oddball character playing sidekick to multiple characters in the comics and has taken various heroic alter egos, most recently A-Bomb, a blue Hulk-like hero. However, he was also one of the many people to take on the Captain Marvel persona and could mean Mar-Vell (Jude Law) and Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aren’t the only incarnations we might be seeing in the film.
It’s interesting because we revealed last week that Marvel was location scouting in the Baton Rouge area in Louisiana. Monic Rambeau, another holder of the Captain Marvel mantle and fellow Avenger is from New Orleans. Could this mean Monica will play a role in the film?
Production is expected to begin sometime in February and its release date has been slated for March 8th, 2019.
