But perhaps the most exciting news came in Marvel Studios' press release for the film. This will be the first Marvel Studios film that Gregg has appeared in since his on-screen death in 2012's Avengers, though the character was subsequently resurrected for Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Now, we break down how exactly Captain Marvel brings Coulson back into the movie universe and what it means for whether the film side of the MCU will connec with the TV side via Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson. Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, and Jude Law will also star in the film.

Captain Marvel opens next March, one month before Shazam!

The key concepts tying these characters together-and to Danvers-are time travel and the emergence of the Kree race in intergalactic politics.


Room Oscar victor Brie Larson plays the title role of Carol Danvers and she is pictured in today's photo with Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt, 57th Wing Commander, on a recent trip to Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada to research her character.

No word yet on if Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) will be his partner in the flick, but expect S.H.I.E.L.D.to have a big presence. They'll reprise their roles as Kree aliens, Ronan the Accuser and Korath the Pursuer, respectively. Captain Marvel " s story will take place in the early "90s, which pre-dates the first entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by more than a decade (Iron Man was set in 2008, the same year it was released). These two characters, however, clashed over the use of the Orb, once they recovered it from Star-Lord.

Are you looking forward to the return of Korath, Ronan and other MCU characters in Captain Marvel? Also working on the film are writers Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Liz Flahive, and Carly Mensch and special effects supervisor Dan Sudick, who also worked on Avengers: Infinity War, and Black Panther. Larson plays Carol Danvers, a pilot who becomes an incredibly powerful hero after an accident involving an alien.
