DeWanda Wise is sticking to her Spike Lee series.
It was previously announced that She's Gotta Have It actress DeWanda Wise was set to start in Marvel's upcoming Captain Marvel as Monica Rambeau. Due to some schedule conflicts, the actress had to, unfortunately, cancel her role in the anticipated film.
The Hollywood Reporter shares the news saying her filming for the second season of the Spike Lee series just doesn't work with the Marvel filming schedule. The 33-year-old confirmed the news herself via her Instagram story.
"It's true. I will no longer be in Captain Marvel because the schedule conflicts with Season 2 of She's Gotta Have It," she stated. "Last week I felt pretty devastated—this week is leaps and bounds better...You see, if you had told me this would happen any year prior to 2016, I would have doubled over with laughter. But here we are—at a moment in culture where scheduling conflicts are rapidly replacing lack of options, and I feel absolutely blessed to be here."
Brie Larson has the lead role in the film that is set to hit theatres March 2019. You can check out some of the first looks here.
