Cap­tain Mar­vel to be set in early 90s

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Mar­vel Studios Pres­i­dent Kevin Feige has re­vealed that ‘Cap­tain Mar­vel’ will be set in the early 1990s. The 44-year-old film pro­ducer used his ap­pear­ance at San Diego Comic-Con to spill that di­rec­tors Anna Bo­den and Ryan Fleck’s Mar­vel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse su­per­hero ad­ven­ture will show Carol Dan­vers and her tit­u­lar al­ter ego, played by Brie Lar­son, fight­ing en­e­mies al­most three decades ago. Feige says the rea­son for the time set­ting is that it’s an era that hasn’t been ex­plored in the MCU and also it was an era in which he had a lot of “fun”. He said: “There is an un­ex­plored pe­riod of the Mar­vel Cin­e­matic Uni­verse that we wanted to show­case. Al­most any­thing else is a spoiler other than to say that the 90s would be a fun pe­riod to make a su­per­hero movie in. I grad­u­ated high school in 1991 and the thought that I’m now mak­ing a pe­riod piece is un­be­liev­able. How old am I now? It’s just gonna be a lot of fun.” At Comic-Con it was also re­vealed that the main vil­lains in the movie will be the Skrulls, an ex­trater­res­trial race of shape shifters hell­bent on in­vad­ing and con­quer­ing Earth. ‘Cap­tain Mar­vel’ will also star Sa­muel L. Jack­son as su­per-spy Nick Fury.
