The Exact Year That CAPTAIN MARVEL is Set in Has Been Revealed; What Were You Doing in 1995?
We’ve know that Captain Marvel will be set in the 90s. The Blockbuster Video store featured in the the trailer made sure we understand that. But, we’ve never been given an exact date until now.
According to Disney’s Japanese website, Carol Danvers will be "descending from the sky" in 1995.
That was a great year of movies that included Toy Story, Seven, Heat, Braveheart, Clueless, Apollo 13, The Usual Suspects, Bad Boys, Bill Madison, Golden Eye, 12 Monkeys, Babe, Empire Records, Jumanji, Die Hard With A Vengeance, Get Shorty, and more.
I was a sophomore in high school in 1995. I was spending a lot of time at the movies with my friends and shooting lots of short films with them. Going to Blockbuster every Friday night was a ritual. I spent a lot of time at the beach during those days and was hanging out in Hollywood a lot for some reason. We saw a lot of weird shit go down in Hollywood during the 90s! I was also listing to a lot of Green Day and Weezer.
What were you doing in 1995 when Carol Danvers came to Earth? In case you need a little jog to the memory, here’s a video for you to watch called “Remember 1995”. That’ll sure take you back and bring on the nostalgic memories!
The story of the film follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight. The Kree alien race will also be a major part of the story.
Captain Marvel was being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind). The most recent script comes from Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider). The film also stars Ben Mendelsohn as the villain, Jude Law as Doctor Walter Lawson, a.k.a. Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg will reprise his role as Agent Coulson, and Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou, be back as the Kree villain Ronan the Accuser and his henchman Korath the Pursuer.
The movie is set to be released on March 8th, 2019.
