The four-time Oscar nominee Annette Bening is joining the cast of “Captain Marvel”, making this her first superhero movie. She will be acting alongside Brie Larson who will be playing Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel.
Danvers is an Air Force pilot who gained powerful abilities when her DNA was fused with that of an alien species during an explosion. She initially took the name “Ms. Marvel,” but eventually inherited the title of “Captain Marvel” from the original character who went by that name.
The Captain Marvel movie is set in the 1990s and features Samuel L. Jackson as a younger Nick Fury (when he still had two eyes) and is expected to use the shape-changing aliens known as Skrulls as the film’s villains. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) are directing the film.
Were you wondering where Captain Marvel was in the recent “Avengers” Infinity War”? I’m sure diehard marvel fans were. She never made an appearance, but the post credits scenes hinted she may be making an appearance next year in the new Avengers film. Captain Marvel’s standalone film is slated to release in March 2019, two months prior to the (tentative) release of the unnamed forth Avengers movie.
Production is currently underway on Captain Marvel, and it will hit theaters March 8, 2019.
