Now that we are done with the two smallest heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we can look forward to the strongest hero of the MCU, Captain Marvel. The big trailer release has really spread quite a lot of awareness amongst the audiences and now people are hyped about the film more than ever. The release of the story trailer of the film in about 3 months would surely exceed that level of excitement!
Carol Danvers is going to be a major character in the MCU moving forward as she is going to become the leader of the heroes after Avengers 4. While Captain America and Iron Man led the heroes for the first three Phases, we will now see Captain Marvel and Black Panther emerge as the leaders from Phase 4 onwards. Captain Marvel is going to be the perfect origin story for Marvel’s first female-led Superhero and it will show us the journey of Carol becoming a Renegade Soldier, then moving on to become a Kree Starforce Warrior, and then finally the strongest hero of Marvel, Captain Marvel.
Talking to EW, Brie Larson revealed how her character will go through internal struggles before becoming the hero we know from the comics. She said:
“You have this Kree part of her that’s unemotional, that is an amazing fighter and competitive. Then there’s this human part of her that is flawed but is also the thing that she ends up leading by. It’s the thing that gets her in trouble, but it’s also the thing that makes her great. And those two sides warring against each other is what makes her her.”
Taking her final form, Captain Marvel will finally don her Red, Blue and Gold suit from the comics. As it is pretty apparent in the trailer, Carol will be a part of the Kree Starforce and that is what makes her wear the Starforce suit, so what could be the reason for her to do her trademark comic book suit? There are many theories ranging from it being a result of her going “binary,” to it being a result of her wanting to separate herself from the Kree, but a Reddit user named curiosityrover4477 has given us a pretty fun and sensible reason for the change of colour in Captain Marvel’s suit. Have a look:
What if Phil Coulson suggests Carol to use the red and blue color schemes on her suit after she gets her memory since it’s already established he was a Cap fanboy and was responsible for designing Cap’s suit with the classic comicbook look in Avengers 1. from marvelstudios
This could be entirely possible as Phil Coulson is a pretty big fanboy when it comes to the matter of Superheroes. So, he will be an even bigger one in his younger days. Having witnessed the powers of Captain Marvel, his dream of seeing a live Superhero would come true, so he could perhaps suggest the Blue and Red color pattern in honor of Captain America. This is a believable story, but there has to be something more to it.
Phil Coulson actor Clark Gregg talked about his character being digitally de-aged in a recent interview, and he said:
“That was a fun call from my friends in the Cinematic Universe, who I normally see at these events, saying, ‘You know, we think once again we have some work for you, but it takes place in the ’90s. Can you go to the gym?’ Yeah, I said, ‘The ’90s? I mean, there is no gym that can get me back to the ’90s.’ And they said, ‘Well, don’t worry. We’ve been working on that technology, and we think we can goose you back a few years.’”
“Getting to see Captain Marvel come to life, I mean that’s a really cool character…and, at least in the comics, one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel universe. Perhaps more powerful than any character we’ve seen, with the exception of Thanos, so to have that be Brie Larson was cool for me. I’m excited to go with my daughter to see it.”
Captain Marvel comes out on March 8, 2019, and here’s the official Synopsis:
“The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races,” the synopsis reads. “Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
