So today we continue on with our battle of the actresses who have been mentioned as possible candidates to play the role of Carol Danvers in the planned Marvel movie Captain Marvel, which is scheduled to hit the big screen in 2018. Yesterday we saw Maggie Grace take on Sarah Wright, with Maggie making it through to the next round, while today we take a look at Emily Blunt and Olivia Wilde.
British actress Emily Blunt has been in the acting industry for many years now and, while we have always had her down as an actress most suited to the likes of indie movies or romantic comedies, she proved that she has what it takes to be an action star in the movie Edge of Tomorrow. Emily certainly has the acting talent and action credibility to pull off Carol Danvers in the Captain Marvel movie, although some feel she does not have quite the right look for the role.
Hollywood actress Olivia Wilde is another star who has been in the acting industry for quite some time now and, much like Emily Blunt, we have enjoyed seeing the comedy side of Olivia over the years. With that said, Olivia has more than proven that she has action qualities and, when she sports her blonde locks, she almost looks perfect as Carol Danvers, making her a definite candidate for the role.
While we do love Emily Blunt and were impressed with her in Edge of Tomorrow, we just feel that she does not quite have the look that we would expect from Carol Danvers on the big screen, while Olivia Wilde is almost exactly what we would expect, giving Olivia the edge in this one.
WINNER: Olivia Wilde
