Let's not even go through that convoluted messed up web of Ms Marvel/Captain Marvel/Mar-Vell/Shazam confusion and lawsuits that lead to this debacle. It's hard enough trying to keep up with Carol Danvers herself without going cross eyed. To keep it simple, just treat 'Captain Marvel' and 'Ms Marvel' as mantles, much like Captain America/Captain Britain, Ant Man etc. The movies are doing so by giving the mantle to Carol Danvers. But then Jude Law is playing MarVell and Feigie planning on introducing Kamala Khan and I've now gone cross eyed. Michael Douglas plays the character in the movies (Ant Man), but in a much smaller role than the character in the comics (ie, he formed the Avengers, made Ultron etc). It's times like these it's no wonder people would rather watch Marvel than read Marvel.
