Kevin Feige Teases That Mar-Vell’s Legacy Will Be Explored Further in The MCU
Captain Marvel introduced a few new characters to the MCU, and one of the biggest reveals, which came in a fun little twist, was the reveal of Mar-Vell, who was played by Annette Bening. She was Carol Danvers’ mentor in the film.
We got a little backstory for her in the film on how she rebelled against the Kree after coming to Earth and took on the mission of ending the war between the Kree and the Skrull for good.
Mar-Vell was one of the more interesting characters, and there’s a whole cool background story there and a legacy to explore. Well, it seems like Marvel might expire that legacy in the MCU. Kevin Feige teased in an interview with ScreenRant:
"Will we see it lived through more? Yeah. I mean, I think one of the things that's fun to us about the timeline of this film and the potential of future stories with these characters is there's a great past, not just of Mar-Vell, but of the entire Skrull/Kree conflict and also this gap of history between when Carol Danvers flew off with Talos at the end, spoiler, and when she arrives with the Avengers.”
We’ve already heard that Marvel could very well end up exploring the timeline between Captain Marvel and Iron Man in a possible Captain Marvel sequel, but there are other things that could be explored in that timeline which would be cool as well. This could be a great way to explore of Mar-Vell's heroic exploits. Feige went on to say;
"We wanted to give her her own corner of the universe, her own mythology. While we're not specific about this in the movie, there's potential to understand where has she been this whole time? Why haven't we seen her yet? The answer is revealed and hinted at in this movie as she was dealing with a colossal, universal conflict in another section of the MCU."
I think it’d be pretty cool to see Mar-Vell explored more. What do you all think?
