Much to the delight of fans Brie Larson on Thursday dropped the first look of her Captain Marvel avatar in the MCU film. One would have expected that since it is the first time that the franchise introduces Captain Marvel as a major character, the story would trace back to the origin of Carol Danvers’ transition into a superhero.
However, as per reports, when the movie begins, Carol Danvers has already acquired her powers and has taken off to join the Kree military organization called Starforce.
A leaked image from the film’s set which was doing the rounds a couple of months back seems to put a stamp on these reports. In the image, Larson was seen in a blue-green and black uniform which is that of the Starforce and is reportedly what she will be wearing when the film begins. If these reports are anything to go by, the story of the film will contradict what the audiences were promised.
Earlier, Marvel Studios CEO Kevin Feige had reportedly said ‘Captain Marvel’ will be an origin story. He, however, had indicated that there will be some changes to the traditional origin story structure in the film. Fans now believe that the film will not follow Carol Danvers’ transition into Captain Marvel but rather will focus on her journey as she attempts to find answers about her past. The Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directorial also stars Samuel L Jackson, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Jude Law, Gemma Chan and Annette Bening.
Meanwhile, Brie Larson is all set to reprise her role in the untitled fourth instalment in the ‘Avengers’ franchise. The directors had recently given an update about the status of the film. As per reports, director Anthony Russo recently stated that they worked on the film throughout the summer and will now work on the reshoots. Anthony Russo reportedly said that he is excited to get to see the pieces of the film fall into place and the team will work on post-production through winter and fall. ‘Avengers 4’, which will reportedly see the characters time travel, marks the end of the ‘Avengers’ franchise.
