Marvel Studios has come a long way since 2008 and audiences have seen the universe grow into the biggest media franchise of the 21st Century. Larson will portray the character of Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, a US Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident, which imbues her with the powers of superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight.
"Captain Marvel" is coming to save the day! Now, after having a look at Captain Marvel, we can say things will get even tenser for Captain.
Not only is Captain Marvel the first solo, female-led movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it's also an introduction to one of the most powerful heroes the MCU has ever seen.
"With [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and now with Captain Marvel and many movies to be announced in the near future, I'm anxious for the time where it's not a novelty that there is a female-led superhero movie, but it is a norm", Feige told Entertainment Weekly.
Starforce will include a few familiar faces, including Djimon Hounsou's Korath and Lee Pace's Ronan, both of whom we met in Guardians of the Galaxy. Not only can she be seen in her costume as the titular Captain Marvel-in an image featuring far less Photoshopping than the cover version-but several other details are given away. Its co-director, Anna Boden, is also the first woman (alongside directing partner Ryan Fleck) to helm a MCU movie. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.
My guess, and that's all I claim it to be, is that Carol discovered she has some Kree in her all along and is recruited by Mar-Vell (Jude Law) to join his intergalactic superhero team. Then there's this human part of her that is flawed but is also the thing that she ends up leading by.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theatres on March 8, 2019. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.
Larson is not the only big name set to star in Captain Marvel, as Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn all have starring roles.
