As the days go by, the hype about Captain Marvel movie is increasing, and fans are quite excited now that EW has released a detailed feature that reveals a lot of photos and detailed information about the film. The Captain Marvel trailer is yet to come out, but, these images clarify that Carol Danvers would be shown as a member of the Starforce and will have superpowers, right from the start in the film, and her air force stint will be displayed through flashbacks.
Captain Marvel’s contributor, Vince Hoover said:
“In those flashbacks, I suspect that we will see both Danvers and Rambeau on some routine maneuvers when a Kree battleship chasing a Skrull ship enters our atmosphere. They report the incident to their command, who order them to retreat. However, Danvers, in all of her hotheaded glory, insists that she and Rambeau pursue the alien crafts. Rambeau reluctantly joins her friend in the pursuit.”
The movie’s plot is based in the 1990s when Carol Danvers used to be a pilot with the USAF. She and her colleagues met with an accident, and her DNA was merged with an alien, leading to her getting superpowers and turning into Captain Marvel. The film is based against a cosmic battle between two alien races Kree and Skrulls, and Captain Marvel gets embroiled in the war unwittingly.
Below is an excerpt from the above-mentioned EW feature:
“…But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. And she’s got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls — the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth.”
EW went to the Captain Marvel sets, and they witnessed a particular scene unfold, which was shot in Simi Valley, California which has been turned into an alien planet called Torfa and depicts huge blue sand archways. Carol Danvers is a member of Starforce alongside elite Kree soldiers and carrying out a rescue mission, but, the whole thing becomes dangerous as thick fog engulfs them, the communication is cut off, and shape-altering Skrulls are set to attack. This is a scary and creepy sequence which gives us an idea of how dangerous the Skrulls are.
This is what Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios had to say about Captain Marvel.
“We only focus on one step at a time, but that’s all about continuing to surprise with the stories, go unexpected places, continue to play with new, fresh, unexpected genres and then introduce characters that people might have heard of or a beloved big fan base like Captain Marvel.”
“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? Really, the focus now is on delivering Captain Marvel, and then bringing Captain Marvel’s story into the finale of everything we’ve started thus far.”
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.”
As per a report by MCU Cosmic, Captain Marvel will be the new leader of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and he will be taking over the leadership from the Iron-Man and Captain America. She will represent the MCU for at least the next two phases.
Captain Marvel is scheduled to release on March 8, 2019. The film has a fantastic cast that features Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Jude Law as Dr. Walter/ Mar-Vell, Samuel Jackson as Nick Fury, Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan The Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Doctor Miner and Ben Mendelsohn in an undisclosed role.
The Captain Marvel film’s official synopsis is given below:
“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.”
