Marvel Studios' Kevin Feige Just Shared Details About Upcoming 'Captain Marvel' Film
Updated 2 months ago

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige recently dropped a few hints — very few, really — about what fans may anticipate in the next installment of Captain Marvel

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, Feige had this to say about the franchise:

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. It also got us talking about different genres, exploring this notion of sort of the ‘90s action film. We hadn’t necessarily done anything like that before either, so there are definitely homages to our favorite ‘90s action films within Captain Marvel. 

When asked to clarify what defines a '90s action film, Feige said:

Well, not necessarily talking about any particulars of the story, but the action elements Terminator 2. That’s about as iconic as you get, looking at kind of those cool street level fights, street level car chases, and fun stuff like that. That being said, much of the movie takes place in outer space, as you might think a Captain Marvel movie would. Like all of our genre inspirations, there are bits and pieces here and there. 

The announcement seemed to leave fans with more questions: 

The "how" and "why" don't matter to some people. They're just excited.

It's going to be a long year.

It'll be here before you know it, y'all.
