The MCU’s first female-fronted superhero story is ready for lift-off
IF 2019 IS THE YEAR OF MARVEL, then its glorious dawn arrives on 8 March, when the long-awaited Captain Marvel finally hits cinemas. Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home follow in its wake (the former by just six weeks): both a tantalising MCU triple-hit and bamboozling narrative prospect after Infinity War’s post-credit sting saw Nick Fury paging Captain Marvel.
This isn’t the only reason Captain Marvel is laden with significance though; why it’s so much more than just yet another comic-book film. Making 2019 so much more than your average year in superhero movies.
Firstly, this isn’t, as many expected, a typical origin story. The film begins with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) already imbued with her powers and a member of the Kree military unit, Starforce. It’s the first MCU film set in the ’90s. It’s the first to feature the alien race — and enemy of the Kree — the Skrulls (a scene which showed Carol Danvers trapped in a Skrull ship was shown at Brazil Comic-Con earlier this month). It’s the first female-fronted Marvel superhero movie. It’s also co-directed by a woman, Anna Boden — another first for the studio. And, as confirmed by Marvel President Kevin Feige, Captain Marvel won’t just be a run-of-the-mill hero with run-of-the-mill superpowers. She is, in fact, set to be the most powerful of them all. Ever. And possibly, you imagine, the key to Endgame. The character who might make all the difference to righting the wrongs of Infinity War. Of resurrecting those who were made dust. Is it 8 March yet?

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.
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.
In recent interview for Vanity Fair’s new cover celebrating Marvel Cinematic Universe 10th Anniversary, Scarlett Johansson talked about what’s to come in Avengers 4 from the set of the movie and confirmed that Captain Marvel will be sharing scenes with both Black Widow and The Incredible Hulk.
“We have Brie Larson on this film. She’s here before shooting the stand-alone Captain Marvel movie so we get to watch her get her feet wet for real. She’s so great, but a really cute thing happened the other day where Hulk is standing next to her and Joe Russo told her to put her hand in front of Mark [Ruffalo]’s face to stop him, and she’s like, “In front of his face?” And they explained, “that’s where his chest is,” and she looks up and yells, “I’m new! I’m new!” I’m like, “damn, girl.” It’s very surreal for me to watch these new cast members come in and get their feet wet and breath new life into these characters who are so iconic. I feel a lot of joy for the next generation. It’s a bittersweet feeling but overall it’s a positive one. I feel good about the work we’ve done and the work I’ve done.”
