Default CAPTAIN MARVEL





Marvel has been trying to develop a Black Widow solo film for Scarlett Johansson, but many fans would rather see Captain Marvel be the first female standalone film produced by the studio. Badassdigest approached Feige about this. See what he had to say.




The Marvel cinematic universe has done a pretty good job of developing strong female characters like Black Widow (ScarJo), Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) and Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), but they still haven't made the monumental leap of developing a standalone film for any of their female superheroes. During Captain America: The Winter Soldier press tour, Devin Faraci of badassdigest.com chatted with Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and approached him about that very subject.

Kevin Feige: I like the idea if we’re going to do a [female lead] do a new one. Do a wholly new character, do an origin story.

When Devin inquired about the possibility of Ms. Captain Marvel, Feige had this to say.

"We’ve talked a lot about [Captain Marvel]. I think that would be very cool."

That response gives credence to information that Devin received from his sources:
My sources tell me that we will see an iteration of Captain Marvel onscreen by 2016 - either at the end of Phase Two or the beginning of Phase Three - in another Marvel movie. - Devin Faraci

Marvel Studios Announces Captain Marvel For July 6, 2018, Confirms Carol Danvers




During its special announcement today, Marvel Studios confirmed the production of Captain Marvel, with a July 6, 2018 release date.
Marvel Studios’ Kevin Feige confirmed that the film will indeed star Carol Danvers, the current Captain Marvel in Marvel Comics.
“Captain Marvel has gone by many names...this character's name is Carol Danvers,” Feige said.
Feige went on to explain how Marvel Studios has developed Captain Marvel for years, saying, ""This film has been in the works almost as long as Doctor Strange or Guardians of the Galaxy before it came out, and one of the key things was figuring out what we wanted to do with it."
Carol Danvers, who was originally Ms. Marvel until 2012 when Marvel comics rebranded the character, is an air force pilot who gains the powers of an alien warrior. In the comics, that alien was the original Captain Marvel, or Mar-Vell. With increased strength, invincibility, and the power of flight, Captain Marvel will be Marvel Studios’ first female character with her own film. DC Entertainment will still have the first female-led superhero film, however, with 2017's Wonder Woman.
On how Marvel will adapt Danvers' powers and story for the big screen, Feige explained, "Her adventures are very earthbound, but her powers are based in the cosmic realm."

RUMOR: CAPTAIN MARVEL Has Been Cast; Possible SPOILERS On When She'll Debut


Even since before the Captain Marvel movie was announced rumors swirled regarding Carol Danver's appearance in a Marvel flick, and now we might have some news on that, as well as some details on her solo outing. Click on for more, but beware of potential SPOILERS...





Latino Review's El Mayimbe is back with yet another Marvel related scoop, but one we'll have to take with a pinch of salt for now. According to him the role of Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel has already been cast, but the identity of the actress is being kept top secret by Marvel. As many of us suspected, the character will apparently make her big-screen/live action debut in Avengers: Age Of Ultron. This is something that's been rumored since before the movie even went into production, as Danvers did appear in previous script drafts. As far as the 2018 solo movie goes, plot details are under wraps, but Mayimbe has heard that writer Jim Starlin has been brought on board the project as a consultant.

Again, none of this is confirmed, but it does make sense to give Danvers a cameo in Age Of Ultron if she's to join the team eventually -- then again it makes just as much sense for it to be Black Panther or Doctor Strange, so we'll see what happens. If Marvel has indeed cast the role already, who do you think it is? Sound off in the usual place.

CAPTAIN MARVEL Sets Nicole Perlman And Meg LeFauve As Writers


It seems Marvel's first female-driven movie has found itself a pair of scribes in Nicole Perlman (Guardians Of The Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), who are not actually a writing team, but apparently impressed Kevin Feige with their separate takes on the character. Click on for more...




Reports are coming in that Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve are nearing a deal to pen the Captain Marvel movie. Though they haven't actually worked together before, THR reckon the duo were teamed up after their separate ideas for a big-screen take on the Marvel Comics character impressed the studio's head honcho, Kevin Feige. No other details were provided, though The Wrap adds that Marvel are currently seeking a female director.

Perlman worked on the initial draft of Guardians Of The Galaxy and is also currently writing the Gamora comic for Marvel. LeFauve co-wrote Pixar's upcoming Inside Out, and also penned The Dangerous Lives of Alter Boys.

Apparently Angelina Jolie Is Being Looked At To Direct WONDER WOMAN & CAPTAIN MARVEL


Could we see a bidding war between DC and Marvel? Angelina Jolie was rumored to be on Marvel's radar to helm Captain Marvel, and now Collider reckon she's definitely under consideration. But, Warner Bros. want her to replace Michele MacLaren on Wonder Woman too!




Collider reports that actress/director Angelina Jolie (Unbroken, In The Land Of Blood And Honey) is being courted by Marvel and Warner Bros. to helm both studios' first ever female driven movies; Captain Marvel and Wonder Woman. There were whispers of Jolie being looked at to bring Carol Danvers to the big screen a while back, but apparently she is now "definitely under consideration for the job. Marvel just set a couple of writers to this so it stands to reason that getting a director on board would be their next move.

We also found out yesterday that Michelle MacLaren had parted ways with the Wonder Woman movie over creative differences, so WB will obviously be searching for a director to replace her fairly quickly if they want to keep things on schedule, and word is they want Jolie as that replacement. With just a year between films, only one studio can win this one... that's if Miss Jolie even wants to direct either one of course! Collider make no indication that she's considering either job or if an offer has even been made yet, so we'll have to see what happens.

UPDATE: We now know Wonder Woman has a new director, so maybe Marvel won't have to battle WB on this after all!

Could Charlize Theron & Angelina Jolie Team-Up For Captain Marvel?





Could Oscar-winning actress Charlize Theron end up starring in an Angelina Jolie-directed Captain Marvel film for Marvel Studios?
Theron and Jolie (Unbroken) have reportedly bonded since they were introduced to each other via their significant others: Sean Penn and Brad Pitt. Their friendship is going so well that there is talk of them teaming up on a Marvel film together.
"Marvel has been courting Angie to direct the project and Charlize is a clear fan favourite for the starring role," a source told US OK! magazine (via Washington Post). "If Charlize were to get the part, Angie would almost certainly sign on to work with her."
Theron has earned plenty of praise for her kick-butt performance as 'Furiousa' in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. Many have suggested her for the role of Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, an ex-Air Force pilot that acquires cosmic super powers.
Captain Marvel is scheduled to open in theaters November 2, 2018. The script is being written by Nicole Perlman and Megan LeFauve.

CAPTAIN MARVEL Co-Writer Talks Scripting Process And Avoiding "SUPERMAN... With Boobs"

For the first time since she was announced, Nicole Perlman, the original Guardians of the Galaxy screenwriter, has discussed working on Marvel Studios' first female-led superhero film. Check it out





Back in April, Marvel Studios had announced that its long-awaited first female-led adaptation, Captain Marvel, will be scripted collaboratively by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. The former screenwriter most recently penned Disney's InsideOut, but the latter is ultimately responsible for last year's Guardians of the Galaxy being green-lit. And speaking recently with Wired, Perlman had discussed the stressful scripting process and doing the superheroine and women in general justice.

"We’ve been talking a lot about archetypes and what we want this movie to be about and just how to write a strong female superhero without making it Superman with boobs," Nicole Perlman said of the Captain Marvel movie. "Meg and I are doing a lot of brainstorming and we’ll catch ourselves and say, ‘Wait a minute, what are we saying [here] about women in power?’ Then we have to say, ‘Why are we getting so hung up on that? We should just tell the best story and build the best character.’ And then we have this constant back-and-forth about how to tell a story that is compelling, entertaining, moving, kick-ass, and fun, and also be aware of what those larger implications might be. It’s a lot more complicated than just writing Guardians of the Galaxy."

Is Emily Blunt On Marvel's Radar For CAPTAIN MARVEL?

This could be speculation, but during today's Meet The Movie Press the Looper actress' name was brought up in connection with the Captain Marvel role. Is it possible Marvel could be looking at a lead for this movie before a director is even on board? Click on to see what you think...



This won't be the first time you'll have seen Emily Blunt's name mentioned in connection with the Carol Danvers role in Captain Marvel, and depending on when Marvel officially announces who has been cast, it probably won't be the last either. The British actress has been a fan-favorite choice to play this character for years now, and that has led to a lot of baseless rumors being thrown around - but, do we finally have something solid?

During today's Meet The Movie press, co-host Mark Reilly of The Schmoes Know said he's heard that it's actually a "done deal", and Blunt has landed the part of Carol Danvers in the movie. Now, as guest host El Mayimbe points put, this seems unlikely given the fact that the studio has yet to hire (or at least announce) a director, BUT, that doesn't mean Blunt isn't who they want for the role and it's entirely possible some discussions have taken place. The relevant chatter comes in around the 33:40 point.
Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

CAPTAIN MARVEL Co-Writer On The Challenges Of Defining Her Powers/Weaknesses


The Good Dinosaur screenwriter Meg LeFauve will pen the Captain Marvel movie along with Guardians of the Galaxy scribe Nicole Perlman, and offered an update on their progress to Collider after a screening of Pixar's latest. Click on for the details...




Carol Danvers is a very powerful superhero... to say the least. She's generally depicted as having superhuman strength, speed, stamina, and durability. She can also fly, and has a limited precognitive “sixth sense". The character has been likened to Superman for obvious reasons, but unlike DC's iconic Man of Steel, Captain Marvel doesn't have a go-to plot device like Kryptonite that can be used to establish her weaknesses.

So how do you ensure Danvers doesn't come across as "over-powered"? That seems to be the biggest challenge facing one of the movie's writers, Meg LeFauve. Here's what she had to say to Collider when asked for an update.
"Yeah, we haven’t started yet! We have not started yet. We just got the phone call to come over to Marvel. But for me personally, the wonderful thing about her and the challenge of her is going to be that she’s a female superhero. And that is awesome because she’s so powerful, and how hard is that going to be because she’s so powerful? We don’t want the Superman curse. “What’s her vulnerability?” is what we have to figure out."

Hopeful CAPTAIN MARVEL Director Reed Morano Explains Interest And Potential Direction


After revealing she'd like to helm Marvel Studios' first female-led movie with her Meadowland star Olivia Wilde as Carol Danvers, Reed Morano has now explained what she could bring to the superheroine and which character could potentially be the villain. Check it out!



Quite a few rumors, speculations, fan suggestions, and some campaigns have linked quite a few actresses to the role of Carol Danvers in Marvel’s first female-led movie, Captain Marvel. However, the studio is likely focused on finding a filmmaker to help bring the superheroine to the big-screen. Which is why Reed Morano, who recently made her feature film debut with Meadowland, had recently thrown her name in the hat to direct Captain Marvel with Olivia Wilde in the titular role.



Speaking with MCU Exchange about what ignited her interest in Captain Marvel, Morano says that it was a random suggestion by which she was very much intrigued. “I just want to tell good stories with rich, complex characters,” she said. “Carol Danvers’ story is the perfect example of that, with stories like her battle with alcoholism as she is losing her powers and her struggle with the loss of her memories. It excites me to see her story told because she’s a female superhero that is completely three dimensional and compelling. She has flaws and she is struggling.” About what attracts her to the superhero genre and Marvel in particular, Morano admitted she’s not a comic geek. “I only know what I know mainly from watching superhero movies all my life,” she said. “What attracts me most about this genre is the characters often have this self-destructive behavior, which goes against the grain of what you expect from a superhero. This is especially evident in Marvel films, such as Iron Man. They don’t have to be likeable, and that dichotomy exists of having all these otherworldly powers yet barely able to squash their own demons.”

When asked what she could bring to Captain Marvel, Reed Morano explained how some female comic book characters are often diminished. “There’ve been Marvel superheroes brought to the screen successfully in a way that retained their flaws and layers from the original comic but sometimes when these complex female characters get translated to the screen, they often become less interesting and layered than the way they were originally written,” she explained. “They sometimes become more about a being an image - a physical female ideal. As an audience member, I would love to watch a film with an intelligent, badass female superhero who is [frick]ed up inside and has to work to overcome that – someone who has a dynamic character arc and who is going on a tumultuous journey. Humanizing superheroes and making the audience connect more to them emotionally has the power to result in a much more impactful cinematic experience. In Meadowland one of the things I explored, was trying to create as visceral an experience as possible for the viewer – to allow the audience to connect and empathize with that couple even though they were being unpredictable. I feel like Olivia and I have only just begun to scratch the surface of what we’re capable of together.” As for other characters she’d like to see Danvers interact with, Morano suggested the current Captain Marvel iteration. “Maybe Kamala Khan because of her idolizing Carol Danvers and her taking on the Ms. Marvel name after Danvers drops it,” she said. “There could be a scary, obsessive Single White Female or even Black Swan type vibe, which could make for a very dark relationship between the two of them, further complicating Danvers’ journey.” With screenwriters Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman currently scripting the movie, Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019. What do you think?

I am surprised they can get away with the Captain Marvel name on film as I would think DC/WB would have that one on lock down. Not to mention Ms. Marvel is the more known and non confusing name. I do agree though, aside from magic (which is also a weakness of Superman's), she really has none and might not flush out well in a story on the screen.

Should Marvel Consider Brie Larson For Captain Marvel?




Ever since late 2014, when Marvel announced that a Captain Marvel movie is coming in Phase Three, there have been numerous reports about who will play Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Actresses like Emily Blunt and Rebecca Ferguson have been said to be in consideration, while others like Katheryn Winnick and Ronda Rousey have openly campaigned for the role. It’s going to be a while until the casting is officially announced, but that won’t stop fans from coming up with their own ideas of who should play Captain Marvel, and now we’re wondering whether Brie Larson might be a good fit.

On Sunday, Brie Larson won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance as Joy "Ma" Newsome in Room. Following that win, the folks at Omega Underground pointed to her as an interesting candidate to play Carol Danvers. There’s no doubt that with the Oscar sitting on her shelf at home, Larson is going to be sought out for more high-profile roles, and playing one of Marvel’s most famous superheroines certainly fits that category. Larson has already some action-oriented experience from movies like Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and 21 Jump Street, and next year she’ll appear in Kong: Skull Island, unquestionably her biggest blockbuster role yet. Starring in Captain Marvel would be the next step up and fit with Marvel’s habit of courting award-winning and otherwise celebrated actors. The blonde hair helps conjure an image of what she’d look like in the costume, but what does she bring to the table acting-wise?

Although Brie Larson has appeared in a variety of projects, many are most familiar with her through her comedy work, and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, that’s a bonus. Mixed in with the serious moments and action scenes in these movies are protagonists, and some of the antagonists, dropping occasional quips and one-liners. Larson can easily pull this off as Carol Danvers, whether it’s back and forth with one of the supporting cast or cleverly insulting whichever adversary she’s facing. Plus, as we’ve seen with Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy and Paul Rudd in Ant-Man, comedy stars can be shaped into superheroes for these Marvel movies without taking away their humor and charm.



If there’s one thing that might weigh against Brie Larson, it’s that she’s probably too young. In the comics, Carol Danvers had already been a colonel in the U.S. Air Force, a C.I.A. spy, and was Chief of Security at NASA when she gained her powers. That’s not to say Larson isn’t capable of playing a military figure, but even if we keep her only experience as an Air Force officer in the MCU, it’s hard to believe she advanced through the ranks so quickly at only age 26. It would be more reasonable to cast an actress who’s in her mid-late 30s. That’s just enough time for audiences to believe that the MCU’s Carol has had the right amount of time in the military.

There’s also the matter of whether Brie Larson can portray that military presence the character needs to have in the movie. There’s no denying that she’s a talented actress, but she hasn’t had the opportunity to play authority figures in her career, and being an Air Force officer fits that type of role like a jigsaw puzzle piece. Sure, Larson can rock the snarky attitude that Carol sometimes displays in the comics and other media, but adopting the discipline of someone in the military may be challenging for her. Of course, I could easily be proven wrong about this, and depending on what roles we see her in next year and 2018, maybe she’ll get to show her chops in this capacity by being cast in some other kind of authority role. Either way, right now the pros of Marvel looking at her outweigh the cons.

Captain Marvel is currently set for release on March 8, 2019, which means that Marvel will likely announce who’s playing Carol Danvers by at least fall 2017 at the latest (and that’s also assuming she doesn’t pop up in Avengers: Infinity War Part I beforehand). Following this Oscar win, Brie Larson’s fame is only going to increase, so Marvel would be wise to at least put her on their list of candidates while her schedule for the near-future is still relatively open. While the wait continues, let us know if you think Brie Larson is a good candidate for Captain Marvel.

We'll Find Out Who Is Playing Captain Marvel Very Soon



For the most part, Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is set. The biggest question marks still on the schedule through 2020 are the identities of the star and director of Captain Marvel, and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige tells us those announcements are coming soon.
“[You’ll have] a filmmaker and cast by the summer,” Feige told io9. “Maybe before. Maybe after. Filmmaker announcement first.”
Summer could potentially mean San Diego Comic-Con, since Disney doesn’t have a D23 Expo this year. And, of course, he can’t fully commit to a timeframe because there’s always the possibility that contracts won’t get signed ion time. But we’ve all had so much fun speculating who would play the iconic female superhero (Emily Blunt? Charlize Theron? Natalie Dormer?) that it’s exciting to know that we’ll know who will play her for sure very soon.

Captain Marvel, written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman, is currently scheduled for release March 2019.

Here's A Clue About Which Actress And Director Might Be In Line For CAPTAIN MARVEL

We have a cryptic hint about the actress that could wind up in the role of Carol Danvers, and the director that may bring Captain Marvel to the screen. Click on for more, and to see if you can figure it out...




There have been rumors of various actresses being up for the role of Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel doing the rounds ever since the movie was announced, but we've never really had anything solid... until now.

During this week's Meet The Movie Press show, The Wrap's Jeff Sneider dropped a very interesting clue about not only the actress that's being eyed for the part, but the director too. He chose his words very carefully, but here's what he was willing to divulge.
“There was a rumour about an actress being up for it; an already existing rumour, that’s not new. I’ve definitely heard there’s some truth to that rumour, and that there’s a director with the same first name who has also been eyed. I don’t think that [an announcement] is too far off. If they can make it to Comic Con, they will.”
Out of the several actress most often associated with the role, Emily Blunt is probably the name that gets brought up the most - but there's also been Charlize Theron, Rebecca Ferguson, and most recently Brie Larson.

Assuming it's Blunt (though that's obviously a huge assumption), what directors named Emily are out there? Well there's indie filmmaker and animator Emily Carmichael, who wrote, directed, and animated the Penny Arcade web series and has also written and directed several live-action short films that have screened in competition at Sundance, Tribeca, SXSW, and Slamdance. British director Emily Young (Veronika Decides to Die), Emily Ting (Already Tomorrow In Hong Kong), and 23 year-old Emily Hagin, who directed Pathogen at the age of 12.

Oscar Winner Brie Larson Being Considered For Captain Marvel


Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson is reportedly "circling" Marvel's Captain Marvel, according to THR.


Larson is not the first actress whose name has come up in connection with the property, but the star, who just won an Oscar for Room, seems closer than anyone has been yet to actually sealing the deal for the film, making her Marvel's first female superhero with a solo movie.
That might sound like it's not much, considering that they've already had numerous superheroines featured in the wildly popular Avengers franchise, and a female-led TV series in Jessica Jones. The constant debates about the availability of Scarlet Witch and Black Widow merchandise, though, clearly demonstrate how different a female-led film would be. Merchandising and promotion would have no one else to focus on (true, also, for Jessica Jones, but Netflix and Marvel don't merchandise their co-productions in the same way Marvel does its movies) and whoever gets this part could instantly ascend to being the most recognizable woman in Marvel's pantheon.


The movie doesn’t have a director yet but does have a script by Guardians of the Galaxy co-writer Nicole Perlman and Inside Out's Meg LeFauve. It centers on Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with an alien's during an accident, giving her powers. In the comics, Danvers was Ms. Marvel for years, and there have been several other characters known as Captain Marvel -- most notably a Kree named Mar-Vell, who died of cancer rather than in battle.

CONFIRMED: Brie Larson Is Playing CAPTAIN MARVEL; New Movie Logo Revealed

We knew Brie Larson was in San Diego for Kong: Skull Island, but Marvel Studios made the wise decision to bring her out on stage and confirm that she will play Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel.


It's been rumoured for months now, but as you can see in the video below (which was shot by a fan), Kevin Feige revealed today that Oscar winning actress Brie Larson (Room) will play Captain Marvel. While her solo outing is still a a good few years away, it's thought that the character has been cast now because she'll have a role in Avengers: Infinity War, though whether or not that ensemble will tell her origin story obviously remains to be seen. Accompanying this announcement was a new official logo.

Marvel's panel this year was an interesting one, with the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 footage - which sadly won't be released online - sounding like the highlight. Still, ending things by announcing that Larson will play Captain Marvel was a smart move, especially as the charcter will no doubt become an integral part of this world over the next few years. We're now going to have to wait and see when it comes to a director for her solo outing, but it having a star is definitely a pretty damn good start.

CAPTAIN MARVEL Writer Kelly Sue DeConnick Weighs In On Brie Larson's Casting; Wants To See That Helmet

Brie Larson was finally confirmed to have landed the highly coveted role of Carol Danvers this weekend at SDCC - but what did fan-favorite Captain Marvel writer Kelly Sue DeConnick think of the casting?


Most fans seemed to be delighted with the announcement that Kong: Skull Island actress Brie Larson had officially landed the part of Carol Danvers in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, but there were a few naysayers out there too. Some of the main gripes seemed to be that Larson was a bit too young, and at 5'8 not physically imposing enough for the role.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Kelly Sue DeConnick - who was the first writer to work on the character when Ms. Marvel was upgraded to Captain - weighed in on the casting. She seems pretty happy and says she's "psyched" to see what Larson brings to the table, but also takes some of the fan-concerns on board at the same time.
“My dream casting—or the actor who is the voice in my head—is Kathleen Turner from about 1983. She could be both sexy and awkward and powerful. She could do all of those things at once. From what I can tell, Brie Larson can do those things too. She has a gravitas and she has a power to her. But you can see she also has a sense of humor and playfulness there. I’m psyched.

The only physical thing I wanted for Carol—I was hoping for Carol to have some height. In the books she’s five-foot-eleven. There’s a little bit of an intimidation factor that comes with her being so tall."
Though she does add; “I’m five-feet tall and I can be intimidating.” As for the costume, DeConnick does have one specific piece of attire that she really hopes is utilized for the movie.
“I love the helmet! That is not a universal opinion. After we left the book, they got rid of the helmet. I have a lot of boring continuity arguments on the history of the helmet and a list of reasons as to why the helmet exists. I want the helmet!”

Brie Larson Weighs In On What CAPTAIN MARVEL Represents And Marvel's "Incredible Platform"

During an appearance at the Toronto International Film Festival, Brie Larson explained why she's taken on the role of Captain Marvel and the importance of playing a strong female character...


Brie Larson being cast as Captain Marvel was a smart move on Marvel's part, especially as the news came just months after she won her first "Best Actress" Oscar for Room. Talking to a number of different outlets at the Toronto International Film Festival this weekend (via Yahoo Movies), Larson shed some light on her decision to take on the role of Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"I have very specific reasons for doing film, and they don’t have to do with me or getting my face plastered on more objects. It’s about the material. And movies live on and can be places I can’t, and I want to be conscious about what it is that I’m presenting to the world, and what those representations of life are, and how they’re being shared. And obviously Marvel is such an incredible platform to be able to share in storytelling… I think what ‘Captain Marvel’ represents, and what this film is shaping up to be, has a message that’s undeniably important to the world right now."

In another interview, the actress went on to further explain why a character like this is so important to her, highlighting the fact that Captain Marvel has the potential to be a role model for a whole new audience, specifically young girls. "The thing that’s been the most exciting now is on social media I get sent a lot of pictures of young girls in the Captain Marvel costume and I’m excited to see more of that. She’s such a great symbol for young girls, and realizing what a deficit we have, that we don’t have more of those. I think it’s really cool to see a girl in a Batman costume or a Spider-Man costume, but I’m really excited that there’s a symbol of women. I think that’s really important.

CAPTAIN MARVEL May Be The Marvel Cinematic Universe's Most Powerful Superhero

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talks here about getting the story right for Captain Marvel, how close they are to finding a director, and how they plan on telling her origin in a "cool and unique" way...


IGN recently caught up with Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to discuss Captain Marvel, and he offered some very interesting updates on what we should expect from the highly anticipated release. Asked about where things currently stand with their hunt for a director, Feige explained that while it's not essential, they're determined to find a female helmer to work on this particular adaptation.

"I do think it will be not a requirement to make a great version of Captain Marvel, but it's something we think is important," he explained. "With all of our movies, we want them to be different, we want them to find the new voices. I think the fun thing is we're meeting so many great directors that we'll bring one of them onto Captain Marvel, but we have future things to come [for the others]."

More on that can be found by heading on over to the site, but Feige did go on to explain why there's been a delay with finding the right director. "We're trying to get a little more of the story set before we bring a filmmaker on so we can talk about the story with the filmmaker before we bring them on." What will that story involve? A very different way of telling Captain Marvel's origin story it seems!

"What is one of the coolest things about it is she will be by far the most powerful character we've ever introduced in the movie. 'How do you find those limitations? How do you find those vulnerabilities?' is something that is sort of at the crux of the story that we're putting together. She has -- as you know from the comics -- an interesting story, and I think we have a very cool and unique way of telling that story. I don't think it's leaked yet exactly what we're doing with her movie or how we're doing it, but it will be cool. She will prove to be a very important character in our universe for all the movies." That comment about her powers is particularly interesting, don't you think?

Kevin Feige Talks Brie Larson As CAPTAIN MARVEL; Explains Why Her Power Levels Are "Off The Charts"

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige elaborates on past comments about Captain Marvel's power levels, and it sounds like the hero will be one of the strongest superheroes to have ever graced the big screen.


Many of the new heroes being introduced in Phase 3 promise to change the Marvel Cinematic Universe in a significant way (we've already seen that with Doctor Strange), but Captain Marvel may be the true game changer. In a new interview with Variety, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige elaborated on past comments that she's going to be this world's most powerful hero, and it sounds like not even Superman will be able to touch her. She's certainly going to be more than a match for Thor anyway!

"If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film," he explained before going on to explain how that makes Brie Larson right for the role. "With Captain Marvel, who has powers that approach a level that we haven’t seen before in our films, you need to counter- balance that by finding somebody who is also very human and very relatable and can get into a groove with the audience, where they’re willing to see her fly through the sun and punch a moon away from a spacecraft. At the same time, we need her to land and have relatable flaws."

As for whether or not hiring a female director is a priority, Feige confirmed that, yes, it most definitely is. "Having a female director at the helm to tell the story of a woman who is also our most powerful hero by far is very important to us," he confirmed without shedding any further light on how the hunt for a filmmaker to take the helm of Captain Marvel is progressing. He did however add: "Brie is a person you’re going to want to go on this journey with, just like Benedict or Robert or Chris Pratt."

CAPTAIN MARVEL Screenwriter On The Difference Between Writing For Tony Stark And Carol Danvers

"There are things you wouldn’t think twice about Iron Man but you would think twice about for Captain Marvel," says Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel co-writer Nicole Perlman on a recent podcast appearance.


Nicole Perlman, graduate of the Marvel Writers Program andcontributoron the first Guradians of the Galaxy and Thor films also makes up one-half of the duo that the studio tasked with bringing Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel to the big screen. A recent guest on The Great Big Beautiful Podcast, Perlman commented on how she and co-writer Meg LeFauve are progressing.

Perlman first touched on the film's need to balance the fact that this will be Marvel's first standalone female superhero feature but that social aspect of the film doesn't need to completely define it.
"I think theres a tendency to have that back and forth conversation of “Should it affect the story at all?” or “Should it affect the writing?” I think that making sure that Captain Marvel is not somebody who is a hero in SPITE of her femininity is important. She’s a very strong character and her being a woman is part of that strength. I will say that there are certain tropes you can get away without having to examine too much if you’re not writing the first female Marvel Studios lead; that could be read into a lot or that could diminish hero own proactivity, strength, and independence. There are things you wouldn’t think twice about Iron Man but you would think twice about for Captain Marvel."
The Tribeca Film Festival's Sloan Grant winner also noted that Captain Marvel is a little bit more connected to what's happening with the larger story of the MCU (namely Thanos and the Infinity Gems) than the first Guardians movie.
"It’s a different kind of pressure in a sense. Meg [LeFauve] and I were hired a long time ago but we didn’t have our marching orders until recently. Marvel is a little bit of a house of cards in a sense that everything influences everything around it even if its very modular. Figuring out where the story fits in the MCU influences things as well. She’s an incredible character, but I will also say that since Marvel has done so many movies already, you really have to go out of your way to make sure her story is fresh and doesn’t borrow too heavily from the other films. She’s an incredibly strong and wonderful hero, but all the Marvel characters are. So you just need to figure out how to bring her to life in a way thats unique to her story but in a way that honors the canon and also gearing out the roles that she needs to play with everything that’s going on in the MCU. It’s a little bit of a twister game whereas “Guardians” is very free– where it’s like the sky is the limit. With Captain Marvel, it’s been trying to really figure out who Carol Danvers is and how to just tell a story that fulfills all the structural needs of who she is but also really channels the spirit of who this incredibly powerful and inspiring person is."
Perlman goes on to add that she wasn't bothered one bit by Captain Marvel getting bumped to make room for Spider-Man: Homecoming and that she's consulting with the Air Force for Carol's military background, specifically whether someone as young as Brie Larson (27) could be a Major or Colonel, to which they assured Perlman that it was feasible.



ABOUT MARVEL STUDIOS' CAPTAIN MARVEL
Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel film was first announced in October 2014. Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve were hired to write the script in April 2015 with Brie Larson was revealed to be playing the titular role at SDCC 2016.

Before Carol Danvers was given a feature film, the character was slated to appear in Marvel and Netflix's Jessica Jones TV drama before a switch was made to Trish Walker.

The film has been postponed three times, first slated to be released on July 6, 2018, then November 2, 2018 and currently, March 9, 2019.

Brie Larson Describes CAPTAIN MARVEL As A Bridge Between Two Worlds; Teases Her Look

Despite still not having a director, Brie Larson has been quite busy prepping for her upcoming debut as Captain Marvel and she recently shared a few thoughts on her upcoming role. Come take a look!


It's taken a while, but Marvel is finally gearing to introduce Carol Danvers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2019's Captain Marvel, although, while it hasn't been officially confirmed by the studio, there is a good possibility that she'll be making her big-screen debut a little earlier as in next spring in the currently filming Avengers: Infinity War.

Her upcoming solo feature, which will be headlined by Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson, doesn't have a director attached and if recent reports are to be believed, Marvel may not be in such a rush to find someone just yet as they work out the final kinks in the film's script - which, last we heard, is being penned by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) & Meg LaFauve (The Good Dinosaur).

Regardless, Larson has already started her extensive preparation for the role and on the recent press tour for her next release, Kong: Skull Island, she shared a few passionate thoughts, with IGN, about how the character has left a lasting impression on her in a relatively short amount of time and what it now means to her to be able to play this hero for a whole new generation of young girls: “I find it's really hard for me to condense what she means to me. I was once a young girl and I was confused by what a hero was and what I wanted to be when I grow up and what was important to me. And so, I think it's so complicated growing up and to attempt to become a symbol of truth and navigating through all the weird questions of growing up feels so, I’m getting emotional just talking about this, it feels so important to me. When it comes to her, I mean just the fact that she can be a bridge between two worlds, that she can go between Earth and space and that her own personal place is in this little area between where Earth ends and space begins and that’s only hers is so moving to me. I’m just inspired.

As for her character's look, Larson wasn't at liberty to say much but did go on to admit that while she'll probably sport something comic-accurate, her look likely won't be able to please everyone: “I can’t say anything… I feel like this is a big conversation and every day I have people yelling at me on Twitter like you better have long hair, or you better have a mohawk, or you better wear the helmet, or you better not wear the helmet, so someone’s going to be mad.

CAPTAIN MARVEL Looks Set To Commence Production In January Of 2018; Brie Larson Comments on The Role

We expected Captain Marvel to begin shooting early next year to make its release date, and that would now seem to have been confirmed. Plus, Brie Larson comments on her approach to the character.


Mark Cassidy | 3/7/2017 Filed Under: "Captain Marvel"

If a recent update over at My Entertainment World is accurate, it looks like Marvel's Captain Marvel is set to begin filming on January 8 of next year in Atlanta, where Avengers: Infinity War is currently shooting. Though this hasn't been officially confirmed, it does make sense given the movie's planned March 2019 release date.

Don't pay too much attention to the synopsis, however, as that's just a description of the comic book incarnation of the character.


In addition, star Brie Larson has spoken about her take on Carol Danvers while doing press for Kong: Skull Island.

During an interview with Collider, the actress was asked if she'd be carrying any traits over from her Skull Island character to embody The Captain in Marvel's first female-led superhero movie and had the following to say:
"For me, I believe that just seeing women be strong and tough is not answering the question of what a female hero looks like. Women have their own set of skills that are worth exploring and seeing on screen. I feel like it’s too easy to just say, “We’ll just change the name of this male character to a female, but have her do all the same things that a male does.” I don’t believe in that. I think there’s something else. I think there’s more to women than that. Mason (in Kong: Skull Island) is a great example of that, and Captain Marvel will be another great example of that and of exploring deeper how women lead and how that is different and unique."
