Recently, Captain Marvel‘s A+ cast (even for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie) including Brie Larson, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, Lee Pace, Clark Gregg, and Ben Mendelsohn, grew a bit, adding Academy Award nominee Annette Bening, and now we may know who she is playing.

When she was announced as part of the cast earlier this week, it was said she was playing a scientist. The latest report from CBR is that she will be playing Carol Danver’s mother, Marie Danvers. We’ve already been told that the origin of Captain Marvel / Carol Danvers’ has been changed for the MCU with Danvers now a U.S. Air Force whose DNA fuses with that of an alien.

So… if the mother and scientist part are both true it actually makes sense; Bening could be both the mother and scientist, not just leading to the birth of Carol, but Captain Marvel as well.

Captain Marvel is already filming in Los Angeles. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they co-wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Me LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.

Captain Marvel flies into theaters in March 8, 2019.
