Captain Marvel Set In The 90s; Features Nick Fury And Skrulls

Captain Marvel Set In The 90s; Features Nick Fury And Skrulls

Earlier tonight at Comic-Con, Marvel dropped a bomb on all of us where they gave us a bunch of little details about the upcoming Captain Marvel film.

The news came accompanied with a couple more big developments: Captain Marvel will fight the Skrulls in the movie, and Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Nick Fury, only this time he'll have full use of both his eyes. "Almost anything else is a spoiler other than to say that the '90s would be a fun period to make a superhero movie in".

One of the cool moments from the Marvel panel at Comic-Con this year was getting to see the first concept art for Brie Larson as Captain Marvel! Though Marvel hasn't sent official stills yet, several Hall H audience members shared photos from inside the convention.

The most surprising news was that the film will be set in the early 1990s, a distinct departure from the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel will actually be taking place in the 1990's - prior to Iron Man - and will feature the Skrulls as the villains.

The Skrulls are a nefarious shape-shifting alien species that were first created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby for Fantastic Four #2.

I'm expecting big things from this movie and can not wait to find out what else is in store for us from Marvel in the future. This will mark the Marvel Cinematic Universe debut for the Skrulls, who were previously rumored to appear in 2012's The Avengers. They famously went to war with the Kree in the Avengers storyline The Kree/Skrull War and later went on to pose as superheroes in the Marvel Comics event series Secret Invasion. Pitting the two intergalactic powerhouses against one another, the story mostly focused on the original Captain Marvel, the Kree warrior Mar-Vell.

Captain Marvel now has a 3.72 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating.
