Interestingly the movie is planned as a prequel to most of the other Marvel movies, as it will be set in the 1990s.
Mississipi Grind directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are set to helm the project from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Nicole Perlman, and Meg LeFauve.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe just added yet another impeccable performer to its ranks.
Brie Larson will be playing Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, who suddenly finds herself bestowed with superpowers in the first female-led film in the MCU. There are now no specific details on his role, but Variety, which first reported the news, says Law will play a mentor to the new superhero.
The whole Captain/Ms. Marvel thing could event be skipped over in the film by having Law's Kree Warrior be known as simply Mar-Vell and providing Danvers with the inspiration for her nom de guerre. Besides Larson and Law, Ben Mendelsohn is on board to play the villain, because being on board to play the villain is what Ben Mendelsohn does. The cast will also feature Samuel L. Jackson, once again returning as Nick Fury.
Marvel President Kevin Feige previously stated that the alien Skrulls would play a role in the film.
Captain Marvel starts production next year and is slated for release on March 8, 2019.
