The film will be an origin story of sorts for Carol Danvers, a human air force pilot who is imbued with alien powers after a freak accident.
Captain Marvel is the first solo female superhero lead in the MCU, something that’s taken 21 movies and over a decade to achieve. Its co-director, Anna Boden, is also the first woman (alongside directing partner Ryan Fleck) to helm a MCU movie.
The movie is set in the 1990s — referenced clearly through Carol Danvers’ Nine Inch Nails T-shirt in one photo — before most of the events we’ve seen so far in the MCU. But the events of this film will tie into the Avengers sequel set to be released in May next year.
Captain Marvel is set to be released on March 7, 2019.
