Just because Avengers: Infinity War premieres this Friday, April 27th, doesn't mean fans haven't been speculating about the future of the MCU, namely the upcoming films of Ant-Man & the Wasp, Captain Marvel, and the untitled Avengers 4.
All that is known of the Captain Marvel film is it will feature Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace's Ronan the Accuser, and a plot involving the Skrulls, an alien race that possesses the ability to shape-shift.
Speaking about the film on the red carpet of the Infinity War premiere, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige described Captain Marvel as "the most powerful superhero we’ve ever introduced" and "one of the most unique and inspiring origin stories."
"We are a little less than halfway through filming now," he told Variety. "We had an early call time this morning so they could finish and get here for the premiere tonight and then they’ll be back early tomorrow. It’s going extremely well, and it’s a great cast on that film.”
Captain Marvel will also be set in the 90s, meaning we'll be able to see "an era of the MCU we’ve never been," Feige continued. The film will also show us "a version of Nick Fury whose reached a point in his career where he thought the wars over and the best days are behind him," which fans will surely recognize as simply the beginning of all the battles to come for the future S.H.I.E.L.D. head and operative.
"Certain things he [Nick Fury] encounters in this movie sets him up for the path where we are 19 films later," Feige elaborated. "It’s really special, and I can’t wait for us to finish it, cut it together, put it in theaters so people can see it, and then people can go see the next Avengers film next year."
Captain Marvel and Nick Fury will hit the screen together when Captain Marvel premieres March 8th, 2019.
