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, its 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 an interview that Captain Marvel will be the “most powerful” superhero in the Marvel universe. He said:
“With Captain Marvel, there’s so much potential in the comics and there have been so many incarnations of her powers and the characters who’ve had that mantle that we’ve been focusing in on exactly how do we tell her origin. How does it fit into the cosmic side of our universe? How does it fit into what we’re doing with the next Avengers movies? So really, that’s what’s been delaying that particular announcement.”
He added “All of the Marvel characters have flaws to them, all of them have a deep humanity to them. With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we’ve ever put in a movie. Her powers are off the charts, and when she’s introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we’ve ever had. It’s important, then, to counterbalance that with someone who feels real. She needs to have a humanity to tap into, and Brie can do that.”
There is also a possibility that she will replace Captain America and assume the leadership role in Phase 4 of MCU.
It will be an origin story of Captain Marvel. Carol Danvers is an air force pilot who met with a major accident that led to her DNA getting mixed with an alien which gave her super-strength. Captain Marvel 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. On a popularity level, Captain Marvel is relatively unknown as compared to Wonder Woman or Black Widow.
For weeks rumors were circulating that Samuel Jackson is returning as Nick Fury in Captain Marvel.
Well, now Deadline is reporting that rumors are indeed true and he is coming back, the announcement is likely in San-Diego Comic Con. But there is a twist as we will get to see his damaged eye for the first time. It was damaged in a grenade blast during World War II, over a period of time he has lost 95% of his sight, he covers it with an eye patch. He is often known as “one-eyed” man.
He was the founder of “The Avengers” initiative when he reached out to Iron Man in 2008. He was last seen in Avengers: Age of Ultron. He will also appear in Avengers Infinity War.
Although, we don’t know the length of his role in Captain Marvel solo movie but this is exciting news nonetheless.
The movie is due to start shooting in February 2018 for a March 2019 release.
