During an interview with Bionic Buzz, Kevin Feige commented on the main source of inspiration for Captain Marvel and the relative obscurity of The Eternals.
The next Marvel Studios film will be Captain Marvel, with Brie Larson starring as the titular hero. During an appearance at the 2018 Ryan Arts BE A HERO Fundraiser, Kevin Feige explained that the film will be based on Kelly Sue DeConnick’s comic book run:
“The history of Captain Marvel goes back and is rather confusing. The one we’re doing is based on Carol Danvers and in particular the Kelly Sue DeConnick run, which has only been around the last few years but is really quite inspirational for us.”
Among the post-Avengers 4 projects for Marvel Studios will be a film based on The Eternals, a relatively unknown property that Kevin Feige is excited to bring to the big screen:
Very little when it comes to Eternals, but I will say your reaction about not being familiar with The Eternals is perfect because most people weren’t familiar with Guardians and believe it or not there were people who were not familiar with Avengers or with Iron Man. So for us it’s finding great stories whether people have heard of them or not and bring them to the big screen in as an amazing way as we can.”

Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019
