DeWanda Wise, the star of Spike Lee’s She’s Gotta Have It, will be co-starring in Captain Marvel opposite Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Wise took the role just after Netflix renewed She’s Gotta Have It, for the second season. The cult classic is the series adaptation of Spike Lee’s 1986 indie romance about a woman balancing a life with three lovers.
This is the first major movie role for Wise, who previously starred in the series Shots Fired and Underground.
If 2017 were a choreopoem: “i found god in myself & i loved her/ i loved her fiercely” #NtozakeShange I love Shameeka, Clara, & Nola with equal ferocity. Thanks to everyone reading this message for allowing them their humanity. To the minds of @gpbmadeit #ReggieRock for #ShotsFired #MishaGreen & @jpokaski for #UndergroundWGN & @tonyalewislee & @officialspikelee for #ShesGottaHaveIt my unending gratitude for deeming these beautiful women worthy of being fully seen. Through this potent and profound work I’ve discovered infinity, and #Gratitude is far too small a sentiment. 🙏🏾✌🏾
