The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
What To Expect On Captain Marvel
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers as she turns into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes after the Earth is caught in the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.
Nick Fury will be featured before he lost his eye, and will serve as a helping hand to Carol to cope with her powers.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told Ew, “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,”
With regard to the titular character, Carol is apparently more powerful than any MCU character we’ve seen so far.
The film will also be heavily inspired by the ‘90s. As mentioned by Feige, “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 favourite ’90s action films within Captain Marvel.”
