‘Captain America: Civil War’ is less than a month away, and the press tour has begun. ‘Civil War’ will change the landscape of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it will be time to look to the future Avengers to lead the way.
One Avenger that is front and center in Civil War II for Marvel Comics is Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talked with Fandango about when to expect an announcement on a director and casting for the ‘Captain Marvel’ film.
“I think we’ll be announcing a filmmaker in the next month or two, and probably some cast members later in the summer, at the end of the summer,” said Feige.
This year’s San Diego Comic-Con is from July 21-24, is that late enough in the summer for Feige, or is the MCU mastermind planning another private Marvel Studios event to unveil plans for Phase Four. (The Phase Three announcement was in October 2014.) Marvel has three unannounced films planned for 2020.
Nicole Perlman and Meg LeFauve have already been tapped for the script, ‘Captain Marvel’ is scheduled for release on March 8, 2016.
Carol Danvers is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Roy Thomas and designed by artist Gene Colan, Major Carol Danvers first appeared as a member of the United States Air Force in Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (March 1968) and debuted as the first incarnation of Ms. Marvel in Ms. Marvel #1 (January 1977) after a fusion of alien Kree and human genes gives her superhuman powers, which occurred in Captain Marvel #18 (November 1969).
