First look at Brie Larson in costume as Captain Marvel
It is unlikely that these photos are from the set of the Captain Marvel solo movie, and are likely from the still-untitled Avengers 4 (which is very nearly finished with production) and which will arrive in theaters after Captain Marvel.
In Captain Marvel, Larson is joined by Samuel L. Jackson as a younger (and two-eyed) Nick Fury with DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, Ready Player One), and Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes). The film will be a “period piece” for Marvel Studios and take place in the early 1990s with the Skrulls as the primary villains.
Mississippi Grind‘s Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will direct the Captain Marvel movie, which has a script by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (upcoming Tomb Raider and Gotham City Sirens), Meg LeFauve (Inside Out) & Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy). Kevin Feige will produce the film. Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz serve as executive producers alongside Stan Lee.
In the regular Marvel Comics continuity, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s Marvel Super-Heroes #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019 with Avengers 4 set to follow on May 3, 2019.
