It's been over two years since we first learned Brie Larson would suit up as Captain Marvel.
What's more, Feige says the success of female-led action movies both in and out of the superhero genre - including Warner Bros.'s Wonder Woman - are directly contributing to reaching that perception. She's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander.
In the comics, Mar-Vell is responsible for Carol Danvers getting her powers, but what they do in the MCU remains to be seen. "And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of [shape-shifting] Skrulls". Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth. "That to me is an interesting playground to work in because suddenly you've got filmmakers who are looking at humor and script work and character, within an infrastructure that is obviously capable of creating enormous universes and worlds and special effects - while also not bogging down the creativity of the director". After Thanos wiped out half of humanity, Nick Fury sent an emergency message to Captain Marvel in the film's after-credits scene before disappearing, setting her up as a game-changer in the battle with Thanos. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.
But never to be forgotten is Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and the Fury we see in "Captain Marvel" isn't one were familiar with. In addition, Lee Pace will be reprising his role as Ronan from Guardians Of The Galaxy.
We'll find out more, and hopefully learn at least a little about where the Kree fit in the present-day MCU, when Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019.
