With Captain Marvel taking place in the 1990s, many Marvel fans may be wondering where Brie Larson’s character was during the events of the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige might have hinted at the answer to that question.
While speaking to i09’s Germain Lussier, Feige addressed where the superheroine is in the decades following her origin story. Lussier started by saying, “Having a character that powerful out there might be confusing…” It was here that Feige interrupted Lussier by saying, “The key is…‘out there,’” and reportedly raised his arms in the air.
His statement most likely means that Captain Marvel was out in space during the formation of The Avengers back on Earth, which makes a lot of sense. However, this simple explanation cannot be all that there is to left to learn about her whereabouts, because when Carol Danvers joins the rest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers 4, somehow I doubt that she will be 20-30 years older than she was in her 1990s-set solo film. Were that to be the case, why would they cast such a young actress? There will most likely be some kind of explanation for why she hasn’t aged as much as she should have. Time travel, perhaps? Maybe, a worm hole? We’ll just have to wait until Captain Marvel hits theaters in 2019 to find out.
Little is known about the plot of the film so far, but what we do know is that it will be set in the ’90s, feature a two-eyed Nick Fury (with Samuel L. Jackson reprising his role), and that the villains at the center of the film will be the Skrulls. The Kree-Skrull War is also said to play a part in the film and the original Captain Marvel from the comics, Kree superhero Mar-Vell, is rumored to make an appearance.
Captain Marvel will star Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Samuel L. Jackson Nick Fury. The film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) and written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), based on an earlier draft by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Meg LeFauve (Inside Out).
Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters March 8, 2019.
