SDCC 2017: Captain Marvel details revealed at Marvel Studios' panel

Kevin Feige

California Film Commission executive director Amy Lemisch said of the allocation: "Captain Marvel and the other big-budget studio projects have production budgets in excess of $75m, which would have made them ineligible for the state's first-generation tax credit program".

Captain Marvel is set to open in 2019, with Brie Larson in the starring role.

Dear Marvel: Peggy Carter meeting Captain Marvel is literally the only thing I want from you. This led to the final bit of news, which is Captain Marvel will be set in the early 1990s. The movie will be out in March 8, 2019, reported Entertainment Weekly.

If the film's producers give the Skrulls disguising abilities in the upcoming movie, Captain Marvel could have her hands full trying to neutralize this potential threat.

See the concept art below! Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that Samuel L Jackson will return as S.H.I.E.L.D. spymaster Nick Fury, but this time, "he will have two eyes". The movie will feature the first live action appearance of the Skrulls, an inter-galactic race with a rich, destructive history in the comic books. While they probably have a plan for Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel will in no way be affected by whatever happens after that first film. When comic writer Kelly Sue DeConnick first got ahold of Captain Marvel, she wrote a storyline in which Carol found herself launched backwards in time. As much as we hope that Marvel takes several cues from the excellent Wonder Woman, one way they could potentially one-up DC here is to fill Captain Marvel's supporting cast with (diverse!) female characters, avoiding the trap of surrounding Carol with a bunch of male characters and painting her as the exception rather than the rule. However, these days Skrulls are better known for a 2008 storyline called "Secret Invasion", in which they used their shapeshifting powers in an attempt to replace Earth's leaders with their own agents (and superheroes!) and take over the planet. Will they use makeup, prosthetics or digital technology?

In other, shorter words, Marvel Studios isn't setting this film in its past for no good reason. We will have to wait about two years to get the answers to these questions.
