The film is set in 1995 and follows Carol Danvers. She is an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight. The Skrulls will also play a major part of the story as they will be invading Earth. Captain Marvel will either have to fight them or aid them.
Brie Larson will have the role of Captain Marvel. This superhero flick is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind). The most recent script comes from Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider).
The film also stars Ben Mendelsohn as the leader of The Skrulls and Jude Law as a mysterious member of the Kree team, Samuel L. Jackson is back as Nick Fury.
The film will also feature Clark Gregg in the role of Agent Coulson. Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou will be back as the Kree villain Ronan the Accuser and his henchman Korath the Pursuer.
This is considered to be the female version of Iron Man so there is a lot riding on the success of the film. Also the character is set to be a key element for the resolution of the events that occurred at the conclusion of Avengers: Infinity War.
The movie is set to be released on March 8th, 2019.
