Kevin Feige Confirms More Female-Led Marvel Films are In the Works

VIDEO: Our First Look at Brie Larson as 'Captain Marvel'

Lynch will appear in the upcoming TV adaptation of Vertigo's Y the Last Man, but before she joins an almost-entirely female cast, she had some very positive experiences with comic book women on Captain Marvel.

Given how badly Earth's Mightiest Heroes got their asses whopped in Avengers: Infinity War, the rest of Avengers gang better hope those rumors of Carol Danvers' powers are true. Captain Marvel is rumored to be one of, if not the, strongest heroes in the MCU.

"She can't help but be herself", Larson tells EW.

Now the internet is full of new Captain Marvel information, and today we got even more of it, including a peek inside the mind of her Kree mentor. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more risky by their shape-shifting abilities. "She is thrown into many a situation in this movie that she's never been a part of, never seen, never experienced - and she just learns it, immediately".




The stand-alone film, co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson), will see the part-human, part-alien superhero go head-to-head with Mar-Vell (Jude Law), Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), and an army of Skrulls. The only other female-led project that in the works is the long-awaited Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson with Cate Shortland directing the film, but no other projects have been announced yet. "This is not a superhero who's ideal or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", she told EW; Larson's quotes also emphasize that Captain Marvel "can be a little invasive and in your face". And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn't always make the ideal decisions for herself.

Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.

The film's Starforce adds Lee Pace as warlord Ronan the Accuser, reprising his role from 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy".
