Fans are really excited for the first female superhero centered movie to hit the theaters in 2019. Especially seeing how successful Wonder Woman turned out to be, the hype for Captain Marvel has increased much more considering what a powerful female superhero could do with her role.
The Marvel President Kevin Feige announced last year in Comic-con that Brie Larson is going to be the one to take on the role of Captain Marvel.
Now he has confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson will reportedly co-star as Nick Fury in CAPTAIN MARVEL! He’s expected to start filming scenes January 8th in Atlanta.
Kevin Feige also felt that the success of Wonder Woman would definitely be of great help to Marvel’s Captain Marvel.
“Well, for us, you know, our Captain Marvel plans have been set for a long time and a lot of things we’re doing with the characters in the announced movies and what we have planned in the movies we haven’t announced yet have all been pretty set. Because what the question would have been on this junket before that is, ‘Do you think people want to see a female superhero movie? Do you think audiences are ready to go see a big … Are you nervous about Captain Marvel being a big, the first female hero?’
And I would always say no because there hasn’t been a good one in a long time. There were, you know, 15 years ago, a bunch of bad ones. Did they fail because they were female lead movies? No. They failed because they were not good movies. I don’t have to say that anymore. Thanks to Wonder Woman. Because it just blows that fallacy out of the water.”
Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel also might make her debut in Avengers Infinity War next year before her solo movie considering her early casting announcement but it is not yet confirmed. It would be really interesting to see Marvel’s take on the fan-favourite Female-Superhero character.
