Captain Marvel concept art

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be a period piece that takes us back to the 1990s. In it, we will see Academy Award winner Brie Larson play as Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who is endowed with cosmic alien powers and gets caught up in an intergalactic war between two alien races. But it’s not so much about the film’s plot or setting as it is who we will be seeing again. Seeing again as in, characters who we thought wouldn’t appear on screen ever again, are returning to the MCU once more. Just in a different timeline.

We know that Nick Fury is in this, so it only makes sense that Clark Gregg would return to reprise his role as Agent Phil Coulson. And because the film is about the war between the Kree and the Skrull, Lee Pace will be reprising his role as Ronan. More on this and a brand new photo, below.

Brie Larson Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios is making a shift in representation. The superhero studio took their first steps by releasing Black Panther, their first superhero film with a person of color as the lead. So far, the film has grossed over $1 billion worldwide in less than a month, and it’s obvious that the studio will follow that pattern and change in accordance to the social changes. And just as Black Panther was their first for people of color, Captain Marvel will be their first female-led superhero film. Set to be released in March 2019, the film sees Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) go from human to superhuman fighting the alien Skrulls. It will also be the first Marvel film to be set in the ’90s. Larson will be joined by Samuel L. Jackson, who will reprise his role as Nick Fury.

Now, just as Avengers: Infinity War is about to be released, we are learning more about some of the upcoming titles coming after the epic ensemble film. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige spoke recently about representation and Captain Marvel, including films that helped inspire it like Terminator 2. Check out more on the story below.

Jude Law

No, Brie Larson did not lose the title role in Captain Marvel. But her character, Carol Danvers, originally started out as a military pilot who adopted the Captain Marvel moniker when she came in contact with the alien Captain Mar-vell.

The film will be an origins story for the title character, which means they would need someone to fill the role of the alien who gave her her powers. Now there are reports saying Jude Law could be the person to do so. More on the story below.

MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS #3

Nick Fury has been a major part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the very beginning. While Samuel L. Jackson‘s roles have been supporting ones, there is no doubt he plays a key part in the MCU. But he has been noticeably absent during the events of Phase 3.

Who knows what he would have done during Captain America: Civil War. And now it appears he won’t have a role in other films like Avengers: Infinity War, the untitled Avengers 4, and Black Panther. See what Jackson had to say below.

Brie Larson Captain Marvel

There’s going to be a bit of a dynamic shift going on with the script for Captain Marvel. For the past few years, Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) were writing the script, which would be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck of Mississippi Grind.

Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios certainly has an eye for finding talented directors. In their search for a director for Captain Marvel, the studio considered Niki Caro (Whale Rider, MacFarland, USA), Lesli Linka Glatter (TV’s Mad Men), and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World).

But it seems like those reports were off just a bit. There’s word that the duo who have worked on Half Nelson, It’s Kind of a Funny Story, and Mississippi Grind together, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, will direct Marvel’s first female-led superhero flick starring Brie Larson. More on the story below.

Marvel’s Kevin Feige Clarifies If ‘Captain Marvel,’ ‘Black Panther’ Will Be Origin Stories

Captain Marvel

Traditionally, a major superhero of a major franchise would get his or her introduction in an origins story. That wasn’t the case for Black Panther as he was the first major Marvel superhero to be welcomed into the MCU in Captain America: Civil War. He will still get a chance to shine in his own solo titular film come February 2018. But looking at the schedule for upcoming films, the MCU narrative dynamic is going through a bit of a change as some heroes won’t get origins stories and some will get origins stories (but even that will be interesting to see).

Yesterday, Kevin Feige stopped by to visit one of the special 15-minute screenings of Doctor Strange that was held across the country to talk about the future of the MCU and confirmed that Black Panther “won’t be” an origins film and added that Captain Marvel will be an origins film. More on the story below.

Captain Marvel

At San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Studios’ President Kevin Feige revealed that Brie Larson was confirmed to play the title role of Captain Marvel. At the time, the film, written by Meg LaFavue and Nicole Perlman, didn’t have a director, but there was a sense that the origins film would be a “reinvention” in order to avoid any comparisons to Green Lantern. Now it looks like Marvel is closing in on a director.

According to new reports, they have set their sights on Niki Caro (Whale Rider, MacFarland, USA), Lesli Linka Glatter (TV’s Mad Men), and Lorene Scafaria (Seeking a Friend for the End of the World). Check more on the story below.
