Hollywood legend Brie Larson will play Captain Marvel Oscar-winning Brie Larson joins the huge team of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the 2019 film Captain Marvel.
The actress has been cast as Carol Danvers, a titled space hero who is both a member of the Avengers and their ally. The filming process has already begun in March 2018, and we already have some photos from the set that confirm the fact that the film is set in the 80s of the last century.
The film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and the script will be written by Geneva Robertson-Duoret, already famous from "Tomb Raider: Lara Croft", as well as Meg LeFov ("Puzzle"), Nicole Perlman ("Guardians of the Galaxy") and Liz Flaive and Karlie Mensch, famous for the TV series "Glitter". Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8, 2019, and will be the first movie to feature a woman as the main superhero.
Annette Bening will also star in the movie
A Hollywood reporter reported that four-time Academy Award-nominated Annette Bening is also participating in the film. We do not yet know what role she will play, let's hope that not just one of the scientists, but there are rumors that she will appear in the role of Carol Danvers' mother. In general, whoever she plays in the end, we think her role should be quite significant given Bening's background.
80s come to life
A series of photos that were taken at the very beginning of filming in March this year appeared on the network thanks to the Captain Marvel News Twitter feed. While the fact that the movie will take place in an 80s setting has long been confirmed, it was a big deal for Marvel fans to see photos that clearly show how the characters in the movie will fit into this environment.
Brie Larson can be seen in online photographs, as well as other actors in the film, wearing costumes that directly reflect the era of the 80s.
In the MCU, Danvers is an air force pilot who developed superpowers after her DNA was altered by an explosion and contained particles of alien creatures. She was originally named "Ms. Marvel", but she eventually inherited the "Captain Marvel" title from the original character that was named after.
Captain Marvel is set in the 80s / 90s, and the film also features Samuel L. Jackson as young Nick Fury (back when he had both eyes), as well as shape-shifting alien beings The Skrulls will act as villains.
The official Captain Marvel synopsis reads as follows: "The story of Carol Danvers, who becomes one of the most powerful superheroes in the universe at a time when the galactic war between two races of aliens involved the planet Earth."
New and old faces
The announcement of the start of filming was also supplemented by the release of a list of characters who will take part in the film. Along with those we already know and the announced newcomers, even newer characters will appear in the film, which seems to be a surprise for the audience.
Along with Jackson returning as Nick Fury in the film, we'll also see Djimon Hounsou reprising his role as Korat the Stalker from Guardians of the Galaxy. Lee Pace from the same "Guardians of the Galaxy" will play Ronan again, and the actor "Avengers" and "Agents: SHIELD" Clark Gregg returns as SHIELD agent Phil Coulson.
Ben Mendelssohn (Rogue One: Star Wars Stories), Lashana Lynch (Brotherhood), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Algeniz Perez Soto (Sugar) ), Rune Temt ("Eddie the Eagle"), McKenna Grace ("Tonya Against All"), Jude Law ("The Talented Mr. Ripley") as Mar-Vell.
Costumes and colors
In January 2018, Larson was spotted on the set of the still unnamed fourth Avengers movie in Atlanta, wearing a Captain Marvel suit, or rather a uniform. Photos of Larson, acting as Captain Marvel, appeared in the "Page six" posts, where she drives through the streets of Atlanta, using a map to navigate and shaking the hand of some unknown male character rather harshly, and probably at the same time teaching him a kind of lesson.
Avengers 4, directly related to Avengers: Infinity War, has already confirmed that Captain Marvel will play a key role in this movie. This is all the more interesting because The Avengers will be released just a couple of months after Captain Marvel's release, in May 2019.
Meticulous fans of the character have already noticed that Brie Larson's costume does not quite match the original, where the main colors of her uniform are red, yellow and blue. And in those photos that appeared on the net, they were posted by Twitter user "el steevo", you can see that the color scheme may have been changed due to the effect of the green screen background.
