Captain Marvel might not be as well-known as some superheroes but she might save the Universe in the 2019 movie.
Captain Marvel is the upcoming superhero movie which will be based on the Marvel Comics character Carol Danvers. The movie is expected to be released in the United States on 6 March of 2019.
The movie will be released 2 months before the Avengers 4 in 2019 and if you watched the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War where Nick Fury managed to successfully send a message to Captain Marvel to come to Earth, it indicates us that the movie might set up some plot points.
Marvel's first female-led solo movie will be played by Brie Larson and it will mark the 21st movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The storyline will take you back to the 1990s where Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot gains superpowers due to a cosmic accident. She becomes one of the most powerful heroes of the Universe while Earth is caught up in a galactic war between two alien races.
Who is Captain Marvel?
Carol Danvers was created in 1968. She was a high-ranking Air Force pilot and then quit her job to work as a CIA agent and then security director for NASA. Later she then became the first incarnation of Ms. Marvel in Ms. Marvel #1.
Her superpowers came from Mar-vell, a Kree alien, who is the original Captain Marvel, after her DNA was fused with Mar-Vell's during an explosion.
Carol Danvers’ is super strong and her superpowers are: flight, superhuman durability, energy manipulation & the ability to absorb energy, and to shoot energy from her hands.
Now Carol Danvers has to take the Captain Marvel’s role to protect the Earth from a galactic war between two alien races, the Kree and the Skrulls. The shape-shifting Skrulls are the villains of Captain Marvel.
Most of Captain Marvel characters will take place in the 1990s, a time when Kree villains were still alive and Nick Fury was still in charge of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Why the Captain Marvel movie is expected to be a big deal?
There are many reasons for that:
- Captain Marvel will be Marvel's first female-led solo movie after 20 movies.
- Captain Marvel will be played by Brie Larson, the Oscar winning actress who delivered an amazing performance in the movie Room.
- It is set in the 1990s which makes it Marvel's second movie after Captain America: The First Avenger, which took place during World War II in the 1940s.
- The Skrulls. The Skrulls are expected to be a key component of the movie, an exciting moment for fans of the comics.
The 2019 movie will have a lot of familiar faces.
Larson will be joined by Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva and Ben Mendelsohn as an unknown villain character. Other actors whose roles have not yet been revealed are Lashana Lynch, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto and Mckenna Grace.
Captain Marvel isn't the only place where we can expect to see Carol Danvers in the years to come.
She is widely believed to be joining the Avengers in The Avengers 4 and we hope she does.
