Kevin Feige Says The Kree/Skrull War is a Huge Portion of Mythology That Will Belong to CAPTAIN MARVEL
There was a lot of big news to come out of the Marvel Panel at Comic-Con this weekend. A couple of the biggest was that Captain Marvel would be set in the early 1990s and that it would feature the Skrulls as the villains. The Skrulls was a complete surprise! I didn't see that coming at all, but I'm really happy about it!
They didn't offer any details regarding the story, but we know it will take Carol Danvers and Nick Fury on some kind of crazy adventure. I imagine that the movie will involve those two characters finding themselves caught in the middle of the Skrull and Kree war.
During a recent interview with IGN, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige talked about his excitement about the Captain Marvel story they've come up with and he explains why this film is the right place and time to bring the Skrulls and the Kree into the mix.
When asked about why the story would take place in the 90s, he said he didn't want to reveal a lot about it due to spoilers, but he did say that they thought it would be a fun time period to film in. He would hardly answer any questions in the interview because he didn't want to get into any kind of spoiler territory, but when he talked about the Skrulls he said:
"There's an entire section in our comics that deal with the Kree/Skrull war and we haven't tapped into that at all. And we thought that would be an amazing huge portion of mythology to belong to Captain Marvel."
I can't wait to find out how exactly this storyline with the Skrull and Kree war is going to tie in with Captain Marvel and Nick Fury. Maybe it will tell the origin story of how he lost his eye.
I know a lot of fans are wondering where the hell Captain Marvel has been since the 90s, but I'm sure that will all be explained in the movie. We'll just have to wait and see!
