Captain Marvel


 

It seems like Marvel Studios is hoping to start off their newest hero with some good company, as Captain Marvel has brought Samuel L. Jackson onto the film. His involvement comes as no surprise despite recent absences, as the actor signed a huge 9-picture contract upon his initial deal with Marvel Studios, with Captain Marvel marking his 9th outing as super-spy and former head of SHIELD Nick Fury.

Jackson has been a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the very beginning, appearing in the very first MCU post-credits scene that initially teased the idea of a shared universe and the larger team of Avengers that Jackson’s Fury confirmed with his first appearance:

With that line, the MCU was born, and Jackson played a central role until the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier wiped out SHIELD and forced Fury to operate from the shadows. He appeared again briefly in Avengers: Age of Ultron to give the team a much-needed pep talk, but has remained off the radar since then. The announcement that he will star in Captain Marvel alongside Brie Larson is welcome news and adds a bit of MCU legitimacy to Captain Marvel, which is still a pretty fresh property that hasn’t planted any seeds yet in the larger shared universe.

The film will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and continue the story of Carol Danvers. While we have yet to meet the Air Force pilot turned superheroic leader of the Avengers, the character is scheduled to appear – along with Samuel L. Jackson and the rest of the MCU heroes – in Avengers: Infinity War. Captain Marvel is primed for a leading role in the developing future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe following the fourth unnamed Avengers film that is set to wrap up the current MCU as we know it.

We can’t speculate too much on her role in Infinity War or how that will affect her own film – which is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019 – but expectations are high for Marvel’s first female-led film after the huge success of DC’s Wonder Woman.
