Captain Marvel Set In The 90s; Features Nick Fury And Skrulls

We still haven't seen much of Captain Marvel, but today Marvel gave us a few more details about the movie. While it's still quite a ways off and they're still probably casting and putting the finishing touches on the script, Marvel has some nice tidbits to share.

"There's an entire section of our comics that deal with the Kree-Skrull War and we haven't tapped into that at and we thought that would be an unbelievable, huge portion of mythology to belong to Captain Marvel", Feige tells IGN.

Following Marvel Studios' Hall H panel yesterday, Kevin Feige took to the press line where he was asked about the surprise reveals regarding Captain Marvel, including the introduction of the Skrulls and what led to the decision to bring them into the MCU with this film. According to the comic books, the Skrulls are known for their shape shifting power.

Captain Marvel is slated for release on March 8, 2019 and stars Oscar victor Brie Larson. "It's set in the early 1990s". Considering that 20th Century Fox, not Marvel Studios, own the rights to the Fantastic Four franchise, Marvel head Kevin Feige presumably had to do some negotiating to get his hands on these characters. One is simply that Captain Marvel beat them so badly they left Earth's orbit and never showed their faces again.

This was confirmed as along with the info drop, Marvel also showed off concept art pieces for the movie which showed Larson in the modern red and blue Captain Marvel costume in battle. There's no telling how the new Captain Marvel's origin will be told in the MCU, but it could be that Mar-Vell's death during the war sees him pass the mantle to Carol Danvers. Honestly, these reveals raise more questions than anything, but they're questions we can't wait to see answered.
