The new female lead in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that got everyone talking is Captain Marvel played by Brie Larson. Not only will she be the first woman to lead her own Marvel Movie but will be carrying the weight of everyone’s hope after Avengers 4.
So far the only info that was given in the cinematic universe about Captain Marvel was at the end credits of Avengers 4. The scene with Nick Fury paging her. Good ole Nick Fury always three steps ahead.
Entertainment Weekly got the exclusive scoop on the upcoming movie dropping March 8th, 2019. Totally breaking the mold of the super hero origin story Carol will already have her powers. Also, the movie time period will be in the mid 90’s. So we can expect to see a younger version of Nick Fury, one with two eyes. Then reports from the TV series Agents of Shield that, Agent Coulson said he will be undergoing a process to look younger for the upcoming movie. We will also see how Carol fits into all of this in her own way. Bria Larson spoke about the character she will be playing in an interview with EW
“She can’t help but be herself,” Larson told EW. “She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.
The MCU’s first female director Anna Boden had a few things to say in the interview:
This is not a superhero who’s perfect or other worldly or has some godlike connection,” says Boden, but what makes her special is just how human she is. She’s funny, but doesn’t always tell good jokes. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn’t always make the perfect decisions for herself. But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity — and all of its messiness.”
The main villains will be the Skrulls. These guys are shape shifting bad guys. So we can expect some epic battles. Take my word for it. The Skrull Kree War is as big as Ragnarok.
I know what you are thinking. Who is Captain Marvel? What is the Kree? What are her powers? Can she beat Thanos? Especially when you have a man like the Hulk who got hands laid on him? Let me drop a quick info tidbit on who is Captain Marvel.
- Carol Danvers was a United States Air Force officer. She got her power from a hero named Mar-Vell by an explosion that fused her DNA with that of an alien race called the Kree.
- Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel is an Avenger.
- Carol Danvers possesses superhuman strength and durability, can fly at roughly six times the speed of sound, retains her sixth sense, and can discharge explosive blasts of radiant energy, which she fires from her fingertips. She also demonstrates the ability to absorb other forms of energy, such as electricity, to further magnify her strength and energy projection, up to the force of an exploding nuclear weapon.
- Carol Danvers is also an exceptional espionage agent, pilot, hand-to-hand combatant, and marksman.
Be the judge. Do you think Captain Marvel has the stuff needed to correct what Thanos messed up? I am hyped to see how all of this goes down.
