The actress suddenly shot to the front of the line stepping ahead of favorites like Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson.

Now there are reports that Marvel has already set their sights on a director for the film. Jennifer Kent (The Babadook) and Niki Caro (MarFarland, USA) are reportedly in the running for the job. More on the story below.
