The MCU’s first female-fronted superhero story is ready for lift-off
IF 2019 IS THE YEAR OF MARVEL, then its glorious dawn arrives on 8 March, when the long-awaited Captain Marvel finally hits cinemas. Avengers: Endgame and Spider-Man: Far From Home follow in its wake (the former by just six weeks): both a tantalising MCU triple-hit and bamboozling narrative prospect after Infinity War’s post-credit sting saw Nick Fury paging Captain Marvel.
This isn’t the only reason Captain Marvel is laden with significance though; why it’s so much more than just yet another comic-book film. Making 2019 so much more than your average year in superhero movies.
Firstly, this isn’t, as many expected, a typical origin story. The film begins with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) already imbued with her powers and a member of the Kree military unit, Starforce. It’s the first MCU film set in the ’90s. It’s the first to feature the alien race — and enemy of the Kree — the Skrulls (a scene which showed Carol Danvers trapped in a Skrull ship was shown at Brazil Comic-Con earlier this month). It’s the first female-fronted Marvel superhero movie. It’s also co-directed by a woman, Anna Boden — another first for the studio. And, as confirmed by Marvel President Kevin Feige, Captain Marvel won’t just be a run-of-the-mill hero with run-of-the-mill superpowers. She is, in fact, set to be the most powerful of them all. Ever. And possibly, you imagine, the key to Endgame. The character who might make all the difference to righting the wrongs of Infinity War. Of resurrecting those who were made dust. Is it 8 March yet?
