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.

Gigantic First-Look

Back in 2015 Disney announced a new animated project titled Gigantic. The movie was to be based on the Jack and the Beanstalk fairy tale, and had Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, and Captain Marvel writer Meg LeFauve and Nathan Greno (Tangled) attached to direct. It even had a 2020 release date locked in.

But while Disney has a strong track record of releasing hit movies, sometimes the things they’re developing don’t work out the way they hoped. And with that, sadly, it’s been revealed that Disney has decided to shut down development on Gigantic.

Captain Marvel

It’s been long wondered which actress would be chosen to take on the title role in Marvel’s Captain Marvel, and we now might have an answer to that question.

It’s being reported that Brie Larson, who just scored herself an Academy Award for her work playing a mother trying to take care of her son while being held captive in the simply titled Room, is the frontrunner for the role and is now in negotiations with Marvel to see if a deal can be agreed upon.

Captain Marvel Comics Banner

There are a lot of reasons why Meg LeFauve should be celebrating. Inside Out was an instant hit with critics and audiences when it was released last year, making everyone, especially me, well up with tears. And after being recognized and honored with numerous awards, the script, which she co-wrote with co-director Pete Docter, and storyboard supervisor Josh Cooley, has been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. So as some are awaiting the results of Hollywood’s biggest night, others are anxiously awaiting to hear more about Marvel Studio’s Captain Marvel.

We are still a good two-plus years away from the release of Captain Marvel. So far no one has been named director, and the studio has yet to find its lead to play the title role. Considering the film is in the very early stages of development we probably won’t be getting that kind of news anytime soon. But LeFauve did offer little nuggets of information in regards to the development of the script, and the pressures that come with writing a female superhero and proving female superheroes can carry the full weight of a movie on their own, and so much more. Check out what she had to say below.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron press conference was held this past weekend, and there will no doubt be a lot of news on that film as well as those in Phase 3 being posted in the next few weeks. It has already been confirmed that the Russo brothers will be directing both parts of Avengers: Infinity War using a script from Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. The two will also be working on Captain America: Civil War. The studio will no doubt be working on the scripts and finding the appropriate people to write and direct these films. And a new report says that the studio is closing in on a couple of writers to pen the Captain Marvel script.

They may not be the most recognizable names at first, but they have huge credits. First is Nicole Perlman, who wrote a draft of Guardians of the Galaxy — she also came from the Marvel screenwriting program — and Pixar’s Inside Out co-writer Meg LeFauve. Hit the jump for more.
