CAPTAIN MARVEL Will Be Set in the 1990s and Nick Fury Will Be Back... with Two Eyes
During the Marvel panel at Comic-Con today, Kevin Feige revealed a few cool new details regarding Captain Marvel! On top of showing off some concept art of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, which you can see below, he also announced that the film would be set in the early 1990s!
This means the whole story will have taken place long before the events of Iron Man and I absolutely love that direction! This is certainly going to be an interesting period piece. I loved the 90s. Feige also confirmed that Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury would be back and since the story is set in the 90s... he'll have both of his eyes, which is pretty fun.
I should probably also mention that The Skrulls will be in the movie! Yep, you read that correctly... The Skrulls! The Skrulls are a villainous alien race with shape-shifting abilities and they are hell bent on invading Earth and engaged in a prolonged war with the extraterrestrial Kree. You can check out some concept art of them below!
Feige didn't go into any details on the story, but I love what I'm hearing about it and seeing from it so far! That's all the info we have right, but we'll fill you in on more details as they become avilable.
