ETA | 8 MARCH / CAP­TAIN MARVEL OPENS NEXT YEAR.

The MCU has pro­gressed in real time (more or less). But as an am­ne­siac Carol Dan­vers (Brie Lar­son) fall­ing into a Block­buster shows, Cap­tain Marvel is set mainly in the past. The early ’90s, to be pre­cise.

Fur­ther proof: dig­i­tally de-aged Sa­muel L. Jack­son as a bioc­u­lar Nick Fury. Long be­fore the Avengers Ini­tia­tive, Fury was a S.H.I.E.L.D suit ready to quit, un­til he met “rene­gade soldier” Dan­vers.

Shape-shift­ing aliens the Skrulls make their MCU de­but. Amidst a war with the Kree, the Skrulls in­vade Earth un­der Ben Men­del­sohn’s Ta­los, who hides in plain sight as Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D. boss.

Skip­ping the usual ori­gin story struc­ture, Dan­vers is in­tro­duced as a mem­ber of elite Kree war­rior team StarForce, along­side Gemma Chan’s sadis­tic sniper Minn-Erva and Dji­mon Houn­sou’s Ko­rath.

But with “pow­ers that are off the charts” (Kevin Feige’s words), Carol is more than a match for the ugly green E.T.s, es­pe­cially when she taps into into her ‘bi­nary form’. Thanos must be brick­ing it.

They’re led by Jude Law’s “de­vout” com­man­der. Ini­tially ru­moured to be play­ing the heroic Mar-vell, spec­u­la­tion has shifted to YonRogg, a Kree war­lord with ties to “tur­d­blos­som” Ro­nan the Ac­cuser.
