Last year at Comic-Con, Marvel Studios officially announced Brie Larson as the star of Captain Marvel. They’re still not even shooting yet, bu this year at Comic-Con, Marvel Studios dropped a few more juicy details.
As has been rumored, Nick Fury will appear in Captain Marvel. What we didn’t expect was what Kevin Feige said next. “In this film, Nick Fury has two eyes,” he said. “Because this film takes place before the events of Iron Man 1. It’s set in the early 1990s.”
This film takes place … in the early 1990s
And that’s not even the most surprising bomb that Feige dropped during the Comic-Con panel. He additionally announced that the villains of Captain Marvel will be the Skrulls.
Up until now, many fans had assumed that 20th Century Fox had the rights to the Skrulls — they’re known for battling the Fantastic Four, the rights to whom are over at Fox.
We know, we know: all this new info just raises still more questions. Unfortunately, it’s probably gonna be a while before we get answers.
Captain Marvel is in theaters March 9, 2019.
