Principle filming has officially begun on the Marvel Studios adventure “Captain Marvel”! It is currently set to hit theaters at the beginning of March, 2019.
Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers and it is set to take place in the 1990s, making it the first movie in the MCU timeline.
The movie also stars Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and Jude Law as Mar-Vell. The press release (below) also lists Clark Gregg on the casting call, indicating that SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson will be making a return to the movies from his current post on the Agents of SHIELD television series.
This Captain Marvel is not to be confused with D.C. Comics “SHAZAM!” which also has filming currently underway. This YouTube video, from me, breaks down the history of the Captain Marvel name and SHAZAM and their intertwined histories:
