SDCC 2017: First Look At Brie Larson As Captain Marvel

Brie Larson Captain MarvelOur first look at Academy Award winner Brie Larson as Captain Marvel is here.

The reveal was made at the Marvel Studios Hall H presentation at Comic-Con International in San Diego today. During the panel, Marvel’s Kevin Feige said that Captain Mavel is set in the early ’90s, with Samuel L. Jackson returning as a Nick Fury with two working eyes.

A two-eyed Fury wasn’t the coolest bit of news to come out of the Captain Marvel portion of the panel, though. Towards the end of the presentation, Feige said that the film’s main villains are none other than the Skrulls, a race of green-skinned, shapeshifting aliens from the comics.

You can see Larson in full costume as Captain Marvel below along with official concept art of the Skrulls.

Mississippi Grind directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are set to helm the project which will begin filming in February of 2018. The script has been written by Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Oscar nominee Meg LeFauve (Inside Out).

Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.

5 Superheroes That Deserve Their Own Video Game Universe

Superheroes Video Game UniverseWorld building and universe building are not new. These writing techniques have been around for centuries, long before we even started writing our stories down. I always considered Beowulf to be the precursor to superheroes and comics. However, due to the overwhelming success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the CW DC Universe (or Arrowverse), it seems that the universal world building that has been in comics for three-quarters of a century has finally become a major storytelling point in both the film and TV worlds of superheroes.

Between Rocksteady’s Arkham Trilogy (Batman: Arkham Origins was developed by WB Games Montreal), Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy, Insomniac Games establishing that their Spider-Man game will be the anchor point for a new Spider-Man universe, and the announcement from earlier this year of a multi-year, multi-game deal between Marvel and developer/publisher Square Enix it seems like the video games will be the next place where sprawling superhero stories will be told.

    Just to be fair, in order for Captain Marvel to be considered a success it must make at least 380M Domestically and at least 780M World Wide.

    Basically, it has to match Wonder Woman’s notice. If WW makes 400M Domestically and 800M WW than that’s what Captain Marvel has to make

      Why a character not so well known “has” to make the same that made a pop culture icon aka the most reconoble Female Comic book hero as WW?
