On March the 7th, Captain Marvel (2019) will finally hit theaters worldwide. This will mark the first time we see the character incarnated by Brie Larson on the big screen, in a movie that serves as some sort of introduction of one of the universe’s most powerful heroes for later starring the upcoming new Avengers film, Avengers: Endgame (2019), scheduled to open one month afterward. You wanted Captain Marvel? It never rains, it pours.
Captain Marvel is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Most of these versions exist in Marvel‘s main shared universe, known as the Marvel Universe. Created by Roy Thomas (writer) and Gene Colan (art), its first appearance was on Marvel Super-Heroes issue #12 on December 1967.
In Captain Marvel (2019), Carol Danvers becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel and Jude Law is Walter Lawson / Mar-Vell. Samuel L. Jackson, a classic in these sort of films, incarnates Nick Fury once again. With them, Gemma Chan, Lee Pace, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Annette Bening, Colin Ford, Clark Gregg, Chuku Modu, Robert Kazinsky and Rune Temte complete the main cast.
The tandem formed by young filmmakers Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, responsible of indie films dramas Half Nelson (2006), Sugar (2008) and It’s Kind of a Funny Story (2010), have been the directors of Captain Marvel (2019). They are also the authors of the screenplay, together with Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who also was part of the writing team of Tomb Raider (2018).
