While at the Golden Globes, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige stated that the crew working in Captain Marvel is still putting the finishing touches on the film.
In a recent interview with Josh Horowitz of MTV News, Kevin Feige explained that there is still a bit of tweaking going on with Carol Danvers’ upcoming solo adventure movie. Were he not at the Golden Globes at the moment, Feige explained that he would probably have a hand in helping finish the final product before Captain Marvel hits theaters in a few months. He also had nothing but praise for main lead Brie Larson in the role of Carol Danvers:
“Brie Larson is incredible. She’s an amazing actor. We are still working on the cut — VFX coming together, music’s coming together, the final mix =- were I not on this carpet talking to you right now, I’d be in the cutting room and on the mix stage where the rest of the team is right this second.”

With Brie Larson ready to suit up as Carol Danvers in a few months, what are your thoughts and expectations thus far for the upcoming Captain Marvel film? And what do you hope we might get to see in future TV spots or trailers? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below:
“Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She’s left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law’s enigmatic commander. But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. And she’s got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls — the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth.”
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.
The film will fly into theaters on March 8, 2019.

‘Captain Marvel’ Funko Toys Confirm Carol Danvers’ Cat Will Appear
With just about four months away from the release of Captain Marvel, Funko has now revealed its upcoming line of Pop! Vinyl Figures that are tied-in to the highly-anticipated film that features Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, the titular heroine and perhaps the most powerful character in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The reveal of this new line of Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures show off some of the characters set to appear in the film, one of which includes Carol Danvers' feline companion Goose the Cat.
The name of our heroine's cat may come as a surprise to fans of the comics because in previous incarnations, Captain Marvel's cat is named Chewie and is actually part of the Flerken species.
