CBMB: Captain Marvel Officially Begins Production with Confirmed Cast

By Muuka Muyumba

Marvel continues it’s unprecedented run of film production with the official announcement that Captain Marvel is now underway. We’ve already seen plenty of behind-the-scenes photos of star Brie Larson in full costume as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel but today they made it official. Larson will star alongside Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury “…as [Carol] becomes one of the universe‚Äôs most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.”

The film will be set in the 1990s, a previously unseen period in the MCU except for the preamble to 2015’s Ant-Man movie. As many fans speculated, this period would mean several past MCU figures returning to the timeline including the just announced Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, and Djimon Honsou as Ronan’s underling Korath.

No word on whether we’ll see Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell), Howard Stark (John Slattery), or a young Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) considering their important roles in a fledgling S.H.I.E.L.D.

The announcement also confirms Ben Mendlesohn in the movie, potentially as a Skrull king. Lashauna Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, and Jude Law are also part of the ambitious ensemble.

Captain Marvel will be directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden from a script by Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Liz Flahive, and Carly Mensch.

Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
