Gemma Chan Cast As Doctor Minerva In ‘CAPTAIN MARVEL’

The Brie Larson led Captain Marvel is beginning to round out its cast. Humans star Gemma Chan has joined the cast as Minn-Erva, a Kree geneticist, and spy, also known as Doctor Minerva.

The character first appeared in Captain Marvel #50 in 1977. She is an agent of the Kree army and one-time enemy of Mar-Vell. Doctor Minerva has a limited comic history so it’s likely some of her origin and alliances may be swayed slightly.


Gemma Chan has starred in ABC’s Humans for three seasons while making a few other film appearances. You can see her alongside Margot Robbie in the upcoming Mary Queen Of Scots, as well as in Warner Brothers Crazy Rich Asians.   

Chan joins a star-studded cast in Captain Marvel that includes Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will direct the project with a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
