DeWanda Wise Drops ‘Captain Marvel’ Over ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Schedule

She’s Gotta Have It star DeWanda Wise confirmed that she would no longer appear in Disney’s Captain Marvel. The actress has pointed to scheduling conflicts as the reason she has relinquished her role.

Wise is the star of Netflix’s She’s Gotta Have It which was renewed for a second season in January. Season One of the series based on Spike Lee’s 1986 film of the same name received rave reviews. Wise joined the cast of the Marvel film around the same time the show was renewed.

According to The Hollywood Reporter Lashana Lynch will be the replacement for Wise. Captain Marvel will star Brie Larson, Ben Mendelsohn and Jude Law. For all the Marvel fanatics a two-eyed Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson will be featured in the film.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck the movie will be released on March 8, 2019.
