Marvel CCO Joe Quesada has shared his immense pride in the seminal re-telling of Carol Danvers’ origin story, Life of Captain Marvel.
Quesada revealed his preference for the re-telling of Captain Marvel’s origin story when asked about which comic books he felt were not getting enough attention. It appears that Life of Captain Marvel, which many fans originally had pegged as an attempt to provide casual fans with a comic book version of the feature film due next year, isn’t exactly retconning Carol Danvers’ origin story as much as developing it further than before:
“The one book I could tell you that just came out that I’m really really proud of, and I was just telling people about this months ago, is The Life of Captain Marvel. I am so proud of the team on that book and our editors on that book. I think it, for fans who don’t know who Captain Marvel is…who don’t care about Captain Marvel, read this book. For fans of Captain Marvel, they’re going to love it because it’s a deep dive into her origin where you’re going to learn new things and nothing gets discounted.”
Quesada also reveals that believes Life of Captain Marvel is akin to X-Men Origins: Wolverine in that they wanted to provide a modern re-telling that would be accessible for new readers:
“Everything that’s happened in her life has happened, but this is the real origin. I keep comparing it to…because the marching orders were ‘let’s do a Wolverine origin-style book with Carol Danvers’ because she deserves it. Also her origin. if you were to talk about her origin to the person on the street, ya know you get to the whole Binary thing, it gets crazy, so it’s hard to understand. This streamlines everything while keeping everything intact.”
Of course, Captain Marvel will hit the silver screen in her feature film debut next year before showing up again in the still-untitled Avengers 4.
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.
20 Marvel Movies That Could Be Made After Disney’s Fox Acquisition
So the impossible has happened: Fox and Disney have recently agreed to a major deal, one which means that — aside from a few limitations with the Hulk and Spider-Man, who have their rights wrapped up with Universal Pictures and Sony Pictures — every major Marvel property will soon be able to appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the plans for the remainder of Phase 3 likely won’t change that much, barring possible post-credits scenes showing major cameos being added on short notice, this development certainly gives Marvel an embarrassment of riches to work with for future film adaptations.
Since Marvel Studios had previously claimed that they have an outline for the next 20 movies they’ll make without the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, or any of their associated characters, I thought it would be best to similarly go all-out and suggest 20 more for the heck of it.
Here are, in no particular order, 20 movies that Marvel should think about making with a complete MCU at their fingertips. Click Next to get started!
