The end of Marvel Studios’ third phase is fast approaching, but not before some new blockbusters are released including Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, The fourth Avengers title and, of course, Captain Marvel. Brie Larson will be playing Air Force pilot-turned-Superhero, Carol Danvers in the upcoming cinematic debut. Success seems to follow Marvel Studios at the moment since their latest box-office smash; Black Panther spells a positive run for the company all the way to the end of phase three.
Captain Marvel‘s setting will be taking place in the 1990’s. According to some photos that surfaced online of actress Brie Larson undergoing USAF training for the role, the film will possibly delve a bit into the character’s origin and how she ended up in the military. Fans should also expect a younger Nick Fury, played by none other than Samuel L. Jackson. Fury will have both of his eyes intact since this is before he sustained the injury to the one on his left.
“You’ll see Nick Fury with another guy’s face,” said Jackson in an interview with AV Club. “somebody that’s got two eyes, so that’s a whole big deal. You’ll see. It’s prior to the eye injury, no eye patch,” he continued.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck have been given the directorial duties while penning the script fell upon screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), who expressed her great joy at taking on the project in a recent interview with Cinemablend.
