Marvel has hired Sanja Milkovic Hays, the costume designer behind Star Trek: Beyond, Blade, and the entire Fast & Furious saga to design the costumes for the upcoming Captain Marvel film.
Captain Marvel is Marvel’s first female-led superhero movie and is set to star Academy Award winner Brie Larson.
The film takes places in the 1990s and will feature Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first appearance of the Skrulls, a race of shape-shifting aliens which are fairly well-known in the Marvel comic book world. Samuel L. Jackson will also reprise his role as Nick Fury in the film. A first look at Larson in full costume as the titular superheroine was revealed at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
In the comics, Carol Danvers was a test pilot who gained super strength and the ability to fly after being caught in an explosion with a Kree device. Her solo feature has been confirmed to be an origin story that will focus on the character of Carol and who she is instead of her superpowers.
Mississippi Grind directors, Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are set to helm the project from a script written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Nicole Perlman, and Meg LeFauve. Captain America: The First Avenger supervising art director Andy Nicholson is also on board as the production designer along with Avengers: Age of Ultron visual effects supervisor Christopher Townsend. The project is expected to begin filming in February of 2018.
Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.

7 Ways The Marvel Cinematic Universe Can Improve
Marvel Studios has changed the way that superhero films are being structured and looked upon. They have created a series of incredibly successful films under their umbrella and moved into television with several great shows (especially over on Netflix), making them a force to be reckoned with. However, Marvel has kind of become a little too comfortable when it comes to things like taking risks.
While Marvel’s films still get great reviews and are really entertaining for the most part, they also feel like safe bets. The Marvel Cinematic Universe films don’t really feel separate and there are things the studio can do to improve upon their already-winning formula. There are many things they can reach for and it’s a great time to look at these things as we move towards the release of Thor: Ragnarok, as well as next year’s Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp.
