We know from Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige that filming on the 21st MCU film Captain Marvel is about halfway through, and today one of the cast members shared some photos from their first day on set.
Specifically, Gemma Chan (Humans, Crazy Rich Asians, Mary Queen of Scots) who is playing Minn-Erva aka Doctor Minerva the Kree geneticist and spy, shared two photos of her chair from her first day filming.

Chan’s character Minn-Erva is a Kree, one of the many alien races we’ve met in during the various films in the MCU. So far, the most notable being Ronan the Accuser. Theoretically, we may be getting a scene between Minn-Erva and Ronan, as we know that Lee Pace will be appearing in Captain Marvel in some capacity.
How is that possible you ask? Well, Captain Marvel is taking place in the 90’s, so before the happenings of Guardians of the Galaxy and the Power Stone.
As far as we know, the film will follow main character Carol Danvers, Air Force pilot who debuted in the comics in 1968 as a human companion to the original Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell). During a mission, something goes awry and Carol’s DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. From this mutation (whoops, or not) Captain Danvers ends up with superpowers including strength, energy projection, and flight. In the comics, Minn-Erva has similar powers, and it stands to reason that maybe she’ll have them in the film, too.
We know the most recent Captain Marvel script (theoretically the shooting script) was written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and the film is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Captain Marvel is the first female fronted superhero movie for Marvel, even though they get half credit for Ant-Man And The Wasp at least mentioning the other star in their title, and is expected to hit theaters on March 6th 2019.
