Though Brie Larson's Captain Marvel will be introduced in Avengers: Infinity War, we'll get to watch her origin story early next year. With her comic origin being very close to that of DC's Green Lantern, Marvel head Kevin Feige explains how her movie origin will be more unique.
Talking to Variety, Feige said:
"You're gonna get the most powerful superhero that we've ever introduced; what I think is one of the most unique and inspiring origin stories…"
[Captain Marvel] is going extremely well; being able to tap into Carol Danvers' story for the very first time, to bring that to the screen, to tap into an era of the MCU we've never been in before—the 90's—to see a version of Nick Fury who, at this point in his career, he thought the Cold War's over, you know, the best days are behind him, and when he encounters certain things in this movie, it set's us on a path to where we are nineteen films later."
With Carol Danvers being a pilot imbued with powers by an alien, her origin pretty much makes her a female Hal Jordan. This movie, however, is aiming to retell her story in a different way, as Marvel doesn't want any comparison with the DC hero.
What I'm interested to see is the MCU during the 90s. This will be Marvel's second period piece after Captain America: The First Avenger, and I would like to see young Nick Fury, Agent Coulson, and even Ronan the Accuser.
Captain Marvel is set to come out March 8, 2019.
