Captain Marvel - Brie Larson to take the lead - March 2019

Recommended Posts

Wonder if having Captain Marvel in the MCU will finally open the door for Spiderwoman to appear sometime down the road. They were pretty close in the comics, so maybe we'll see a small easter egg or something in this somewhere.

Not sure, but she's always been seperate to Spiderman, as she has different powers, and has not really been in Spiderman comics other than in a guest star role, much like other non Spidey characters, so unless I'm wrong, I think Marvel may actually own her rights, not Sony.

 

In case theres any confusion, I'm talking Jessica Drew, the private investigator, not Spider-Gwen or anything to do with Spidey's characters here.

Hmm, wonder what the tone will be - Russo Bros or Gunn? Might have our GoG3 director/s if this is decent.

 

Edit: Looking at their IMDB, I have no idea. Still, "From the directors of Half Nelson" does sound more immediately promising than "From the directors of You, Me and Dupree"

I'm stupidly excited about this!

 

I know absolutely naff all about Captain Marvel (she never seemed to appear in any of the comics I read during the 80s and 90s of my peak comic period!), but it all looks smashing!

There's a theory that at some point Captain Marvel gets her sash from this boi:

Can't see it happening until Avengers 4 though.

 

Didn't he get killed in IW?

 

Spoiler

Time travel!

My only concern about this is that 

Spoiler

it looks like she's gets recruited as a Kree warrior by Jude Law, which could play out a bit too close to Green Lantern.

Her comic book origin is pretty pulpy and daft (not to mention her career trajectory from pilot to spy to head of NASA security to editor of Woman magazine), so I can see why they'd change it up a bit.

 

There's still several years to go before Rogue can toss her off the Golden Gate bridge, so let's see how it goes.
