Captain Marvel comes out next year and it's going to be one of the more interesting installments of the MCU. It will not only be the first Marvel film with a female lead but it is also set in the 90's making it the second period-piece from the company, the first being Captain America: The First Avenger.

What fans weren't expecting, however, was how important the installment might be for the whole MCU. And it's not just because we have a woman in the lead role.

Fans will remember how Nick Fury told Tony Stark at the end of the first Iron Man that he was a part of a bigger universe than he expected. Captain Marvel will have a Fury who isn't aware of how big the universe is yet, with Carol Danvers being the first super-powered individual he meets.


Making Captain Marvel the first super-powered hero of the MCU is an interesting turn of events. Sure, Steve Rogers is a super soldier but Carol will be able to fly and shoot lasers. Here's what Kevin Feige had to say about the film:

"We wanted to explore a period before Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury had any idea about any of the other heroes and crazy stuff going on in the world. You know, we first met Nick when he told Tony, "You're part of a big universe. You just don't know yet." Well, we want to go back to a time when he didn't know it yet, and really showcase and announce that Carol Danvers was that first hero that Nick came across. That meant she could be the singular hero, but place it within timing of the MCU."

Captain Marvel comes out on March 8, 2019.
