The first synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel has been released to celebrate the film beginning production.

“Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, 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.  Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”

Marvel announces new cast additions

The studio has also announced the return of some of MCU’s well-known faces to Captain Marvel: Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, and Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer. And the addition of Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace.

Actors confirmed in previously months, we have Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan and Lashana Lynch, who replaced DeWanda Wise after she had to leave the production because of schedule conflicts with her Netflix show. Also on Captain Marvel’s IMDB page: Kenneth Mitchell is listed as Joseph Danvers. And I think he will play Carol Danvers’ brother.

Kevin Feige is the producer of Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel.” Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patty Whitcher and Stan Lee are executive producers, with Lars Winther serving as co-producer/first assistant director and David Grant serving as co-producer.

Our gallery was updated with sereval images from the set. Captain Marvel is being filmed in and around the greater Los Angeles area, which will also serve as the production base for the film. The production will also shoot on location in Fresno, California, as well as locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and New Orleans in July 2018.

Entertainment Weekly’s March 2018 Issue brought a special interview with Kevin Feige. He talked about the Marvel Cinematic Universe and we got to know a little bit more about Brie’s upcoming project Captain Marvel, which is set to premiere next year and starts filming this month.

What feels like the big gamble now? 
Every time you do a film that doesn’t have a part two behind it or wasn’t a sequel. After Iron Man, and certainly after Captain America and Thor, and certainly after The Avengers, Marvel Studios could have made, theoretically, a nice game plan only making sequels to those movies. A lot of studios would love to have four franchises that they can keep doing sequels to. We specifically didn’t want to do that, because we wanted to keep bringing new characters to the forefront, because there’s an embarrassment of riches in the comic books.

Which of those new films felt like risks, felt uncertain?
You look at Guardians of the GalaxyDoctor StrangeAnt-Man … You look at Black Panther or Captain Marvel, that we have just started filming. One could consider those risks, whenever you’re doing something new and it’s not proven. Doing a third version of Spider-Man. Those are all things that have a certain amount of risk associated with them, but early on we decided we didn’t want to be just the Iron Man studio or just the Avengers studio. We want to be the Marvel Studio.

Years back, you listed all of those new movies as possible projects you wanted to make. Now most of them have happened. So, what’s on your wish list now?
Well, there are lots. There are lots. It’s a testament to the 8,000-plus characters in Marvel Comics. We still haven’t made or developed every character we saw when we flipped through a comic and went, “This would be cool. This would be a good story.”

Such as …?
We’re not ready to talk about what those are, but like the ones we’ve made in the first three phases, they’re ones that are either just great concepts for a film, great characters with great supporting characters, like Panther. New locations and lands that have cultural significance all their own, and continuing to tell stories that represent the world as it is, that represent people who perhaps haven’t seen themselves portrayed in this light in the past. We want to continue to do that.

You have Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, the first female title character in a Marvel Studios film, with Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck co-directing. Obviously, Ryan Coogler directing Black Panther was a landmark for representation. Will you get more women and people of color behind the camera as well as in front of the camera?
Yes. I think we’re seeing it shift from a very purposeful initiative to just a fact of life, to just a way of doing business. Then there are people we hired that we’re not ready to announce in all different capacities, particularly behind the camera. As Panther has so loudly declared, [representation] can only help you, can only help you tell unique stories, can only help you do things in a new, and unique, and fresh, and exciting way. If you do that, audiences will notice it, and appreciate it, and support it.

I wanted to ask you a little more about Captain Marvel. It’s set in the 1990s. How does shifting that timeline back open up new storytelling for the MCU?
We wanted to explore a period before Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury had any idea about any of the other heroes and crazy stuff going on in the world. You know, we first met Nick when he told Tony, “You’re part of a big universe. You just don’t know yet.” Well, we want to go back to a time when he didn’t know it yet, and really showcase and announce that Carol Danvers was that first hero that Nick came across. That meant she could be the singular hero, but place it within timing of the MCU. It also got us talking about different genres, exploring this notion of sort of the ‘90s action film. We hadn’t necessarily done anything like that before either, so there are definitely homages to our favorite ‘90s action films within Captain Marvel.

What defines a ‘90s action film? Like, what would be a few of the inspirations?
Well, not necessarily talking about any particulars of the story, but the action elements Terminator 2. That’s about as iconic as you get, looking at kind of those cool street level fights, street level car chases, and fun stuff like that. That being said, much of the movie takes place in outer space, as you might think a Captain Marvel movie would. Like all of our genre inspirations, there are bits and pieces here and there.

You opened Black Panther with a prologue set in 1992. I wondered if we might expect more hero stories to be set in that time period going forward?
I would say no. I mean, in terms of Captain Marvel and a young T’Chaka in ’92, no. That’s not where we’re headed. But we would talk about the ancestral plane sequence [in Black Panther] where, towards the end of the movie, T’Challa takes the herb again and encounters his father, where he’s like, “Hey, man. We’ve kind of screwed up, and I want to change it.” There’s that moment where all of the ancestors come behind T’Chaka. We would joke and go, “I want to see … what’s their story? What’s that story? Who was Bashenga, the first king of Wakanda? Who’s that third to the left, behind T’Chaka? What was their story in Wakanda in 1938? That would be cool.” It all starts as conversations like that. The more audiences want to see these stories, the more opportunities we have to explore different places and time.

First Look of Brie Larson as ‘Captain Marvel’ on set

First Look of Brie Larson as ‘Captain Marvel’ on set

New images of the set of Avengers 4 where we can see a first look of Brie Larson in the costume of the powerful heroine Captain Marvel, surfaced today – January 25.

BRIEBR005.jpg BRIEBR010.jpg BRIEBR017.jpg BRIEBR028.jpg

In the pictures we can see that the character will probably wear an initial Kree costume, and later will change it to the traditional red and blue. (costume that was featured in a promotional art at D23 last year). For those who do not know, the classic Kree warriors wore a green military uniform; The Kree are a race of Skrull, one of the oldest and most important of the Marvel Universe in comics.

Also we can see in the costume the Hala Star in the chest of the heroine. Hala is nothing less than Captain Marvel’s planet, Mar-Vell, in which there have been rumors about his appearance in the character’s solo movie and had an Easter egg in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, in a scene where Rocket travels through space to meet the Star Lord on the planet Ego, until arriving at its destination, one of the places where he passes is Hala. Another detail is that the Sea-Vell is a Kree, and Hala is the home planet of that race.

It is still too early for great theories. Captain Marvel’s solo film begins filming in March and its premiere is will take place on March 8, 2019. Avengers 4, debuts a few months after, in May of the same year.

Brie Larson made personal sacrifices to be Captain Marvel

Brie Larson made personal sacrifices to be Captain Marvel

It took months before Marvel Studios formally announced who would be playing the buzzed about role of Captain Marvel, and it took Brie Larson months to decided whether or not to take it. In an interview with Net-a-Porter’s Porter magazine, the Oscar winner revealed what ultimately swayed her to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“I spent months thinking about whether or not I was going to do the film and I realized that it was a chance to tell a story on the largest scale possible,” she said. “I know it is going to make me lose some of the things I love most about my life, but I think it’s worth it.”

Larson will portray Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, a film set before the events of the first Iron Man movie. Samuel L. Jackson will return as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury — this time with both eyes — in a story involving the strongwoman battling the aliens known as Skrulls.

The comics envisioned Carol as an Air Force and C.I.A. service member whose DNA is spliced together with the alien Kree race, granting her superhuman strength, invulnerability, flight, and the power to launch concussive energy blasts from her hands. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige teased that, when Captain Marvel comes on the scene, she’ll “be by far the strongest character we’ve ever had” in a Marvel film.

Larson evolved from an indie-star-to-watch to one of the most in-demand actresses in Hollywood, since she won the best actress Oscar in 2016 for the film Room. But landing a major role in a Marvel Studios film is another level. Larson told The Hollywood Reporter in a 2016 interview how much she values her privacy. “I can’t help but trip out about how similar my life is to Room,” she said. “It’s me wanting to stay in my own little bubble and remain anonymous and invisible and at the same time needing to step up to this hand that I’ve been given.”

The Glass Castle star previously said of accepting the role of Captain Marvel, “Ultimately, I couldn’t deny the fact that this movie is everything I care about, everything that’s progressive and important and meaningful, and a symbol I wished I would’ve had growing up. I really, really feel like it’s worth it if it can bring understanding and confidence to young women — I’ll do it.”

Brie Wants to Direct A Marvel Movie

Brie Wants to Direct A Marvel Movie

Brie Larson’s directorial debut, “Unicorn Store,” is a replica of your teenage mood board: It has glitter, splashes of pink, annoying parents, vibrant ribbons and, of course, a shiny white mythological beast.

Larson always wanted a unicorn. It was her childhood wish, which helps to explain her attraction to this movie. She first auditioned for “Unicorn Store” five years ago, before “Short Term 12″ provided her breakout flash and long before “Room” made her an Oscar winner. Rebel Wilson got the role instead. But, in typical Hollywood fashion, the project fell apart ― until about two years ago, when producers approached Larson with an offer to direct it herself. Now, Larson wants to embrace the anything-is-possible phase of her career.

After spending a year shaping Samantha McIntyre’s script using inspiration from Joseph Campbell’s theories about the archetypal hero’s journey, Larson cast herself in the lead role. (She initially wanted to find an unknown actress.) Larson plays Kit, an emotionally stunted 20-something with splintered dreams of becoming an accomplished artist. “You guys still like me, right?” Kit asks the teddy bears in her childhood bedroom.

After moving back in with her parents (Joan Cusack and Bradley Whitford), Kit finds a dull desk job at a marketing agency. It’s there that she receives a mysterious envelope containing an invitation to something called The Store, where a pink-suited Samuel L. Jackson offers Kit the chance to own her very own unicorn.

When I was coming up I would scare people at auditions because I would be too intense.Brie Larson

“The main thing was thinking about the metaphor of the unicorn and allowing the story to read as many different interpretations,” Larson told HuffPost last week at the Toronto Film Festival, where “Unicorn Store” premiered. “So, what is the unicorn? Is it your ultimate dream? Is it connecting to your childhood self? Is it almost spiritual? Because the unicorn does have almost a religious connotation to it. It’s the third eye and a vortex, and pure light is the color of the rainbow.”

As Kit gets closer and closer to that unicorn ― Jackson’s industrial genie has a lot of prerequisites before it can be hers ― her borderline pervy boss (Hamish Linklater) takes a liking to her. She is given a chance to pitch an ad campaign for a vacuum cleaner. Finally, an avenue to artistic glory! During her noisy presentation, Kit splashes the boardroom with glitter and, in a supervisor’s words, “rainbow-magicalness.” It is, simply, a lot ― which is something else Larson relates to.

“It was somewhat metaphorically autobiographical because when I was coming up I would scare people at auditions because I would be too intense,” she said. “I’d be too much and push things too hard. I was so interested in doing things real that it was a lot. I look back on it and I think it’s kind of like a superhero origin story. You have the powers, but you might accidentally hurt someone. You can’t quite form your fireball right, and everything blows up in your face. When I look back on it, it was like that — I had something, but it wasn’t refined. It was much more animalistic. I think that was hard for me. It was a very painful thing to come to terms with: ‘Oh, I’m too much for people. I have so much I want to give to this, but it’s too much.’”

Now that Larson has calmed down enough to become an A-list actress-turned-director ― she’s also helmed a couple of short films ― it’s only up from here. She’s embracing a superhero origin story of her own, playing the title role in 2019′s “Captain Marvel.”

How about directing one of those little comic-book ditties next?

“Oh yeah, that’s my plan,” she said. “Why not? My new life philosophy is I’m not going to tell myself no. I’m just going to do stuff until someone else tells me no.”
