Marvel Cinematic universe is set to expand to include 68 characters who will appear in Avengers Infinity War and Avengers 4. The consistent trend with Marvel movies has been that firstly the solo movie launches the character, and then it is brought into the ensemble superhero movie, for instance, Ant-Man, Thor, Iron-man, Hulk, Captain America etc. But there are notable exceptions like Black Panther, Spiderman who parachuted into the MCU.
The Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson (Room, 21 Jump Street, Rachel in Community TV series) is confirmed to play the iconic female superhero Captain Marvel as part of Phase 3 of Marvel cinematic universe. She will make her debut in Avengers Infinity War. There is also a standalone movie in the works which is based on Captain Marvel, it’s screenplay will be written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman (of Guardians of the Galaxy fame). Kevin Feige (the head of Marvel studios) said in a recent interview that Captain Marvel will be the “most powerful” superhero in the Marvel universe. It is speculated that we may see an Infinity gem that will mark her transition from an airforce pilot to a superhero. There is also a possibility that she will replace Captain America and assume a leadership role in phase 4 of MCU.
Carol Danvers is an airforce pilot who met with a major accident that led to her DNA getting mixed with an alien which gave her super-strength. She is also famous for being a female superhero who aggressively fight for equal pay for women. On a power level, she is equivalent to Vision or Scarlett Witch, popularly known as Wonder woman of Marvel universe. In the MCU, the studio is planning to give an entirely different origin story to Captain Marvel because of its similarities to Green Lantern (Hell Jordan). Well, I am pumped for her introduction into the MCU.
