The MCU is now stepping into a transitional phase, as all our familiar superheroes will depart this series after the movie, Avengers: Endgame. While compiling movie which are expected to release in the next couple of years, the future movie slate has been dominated by all-new movies and sequels to the recent entries into the shared universe. Kevin Feige, Marvel Studios president, had said that the most recent superhero to make an entry into in the MCU, Captain Marvel will become a huge force in the franchise.
“The great thing about Captain Marvel is she is a human. She’s a real person, Carol Danvers, who gets these incredible powers and who has these amazing adventures in outer space,” Feige had said.
“But as with all of the best Marvel characters, she needs to be very human. So this is not just about somebody who is incredibly powerful and can fly around and shoot photon blasts out of her hands; it’s somebody who’s very human, who’s very vulnerable, and who has multiple dimensions.”
Tony Stark had debuted in the movie, Iron Man, and he had started the MCU. While there is no official “leader” of the Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America have been crucial and prominent characters in this franchise. In this regard, it looks like Captain Marvel will be driving the MCU forward after Endgame:
“When we found out that Brie Larson might be interested in joining our world, we had a number of meetings. She was a huge fan of the character in the comics. One of the highlights of my career at Marvel was introducing her at Comic-Con and having her come out on stage and stand there with literally almost everybody else from our movies. There she was at the forefront, and it was a great foreshadowing – not just for how audiences are going to embrace Brie as this character, but also for how Captain Marvel is about to take the lead and be at the forefront of the entire Cinematic Universe,” Feige had said.
Captain Marvel is in theatres now.
