Another day, another Captain Marvel featurette as Marvel Studios gears up for their 22nd MCU film to hit theaters in little less than a week.
This time, the cast (and Kevin Feige) talk about playing in the MCU sandbox, and the resulting film:
The first “public” screening of Captain Marvel happened in Los Angeles and so far, the reactions are overwhelmingly positive. Everyone loves Goose the cat, everyone loves Ben Mendelsohn, and everyone LOVES Brie Larson as the good Captain. (You can read about the first reactions here.)
Anna Boden (first female director for Marvel Studios, only took 21 films) and Ryan Fleck are directing from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Captain Marvel stars Oscar winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce (who may or may not have two names), Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace returning as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Skull Commander Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace, and Annette Bening in as-yet-undisclosed roles.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8th 2019 (International Women’s Day), and tickets are on sale now.
