SDCC: Marvel Unleashes Details Of ‘Captain Marvel’ Film

Though a trailer or teaser wasn’t provided there was still plenty of information about the upcoming Captain Marvel movie set to open in 2019. The news paints a very vivid picture of what to expect from Marvel’s first female led film, where Brie Larson is set to play Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel.

The movie will take place in the 1990s, meaning it will be before the events of the first entry in the MCU, Iron Man. This will no doubt result in hiding the details of what plays out to explain why this events were not mentioned in any other movies previously. Details which were buried deep in the S.H.I.E.L.D. files (a bit of speculation on how this can all be explained). Concept art has been provided which showcases Samuel L. Jackson, once again assuming his role as NIck Fury. The artwork also showed the leader of S.H.I.E.L.D. to still have both of his eyes, meaning there is a good chance the events which lead to him losing his eye will be played out.

The main antagonists of the film were also revealed. It will be the shapeshifting, world conquering aliens, The Skrulls who will Captain Marvel will have to tangle with. This seems like a perfect fit given how Captain Marvel’s powers came from the Kree, the alien race which has fought with the Skrulls countless times in the comic book mythology.


The film is set to be released on March 8th, 2019, meaning there may still be a wait before a full trailer is released for the film. Keep your eyes pealed to Monkeys Fighting Robots for more news on the coming of Captain Marvel to the big screen.
