Captain Marvel (MCU)
Couldn't find an appropriate thread for this so I made one.

Brie Larson is currently the frontrunner for Carol Danvers

Tennyo 06/02/2016 02:54 AM

How did I not know of this until now?

Yes yes yes this could be good.

I just wish this movie wasn't three years away. I need my Carol Danvers now. </3

The Twilight Mexican 07/24/2016 03:40 AM

And it's official: Brie Larson will be Captain Carol

But maybe it was an intentional joke...:O

Tennyo 07/27/2016 07:13 PM

^^ This is what I was wondering, like...

Not sure if clueless intern or DC fan trying to troll everyone.

X-SOLDIER 07/27/2016 07:18 PM

Could also be a comics-knowledgable-but-disgruntled-with-CNN-employee. :awesomonster:

Tennyo 07/27/2016 07:37 PM

And making them look ignorant about comics is the ultimate payback?

X-SOLDIER 07/27/2016 08:18 PM

Not the ultimate payback, but if you hate where you work, it'd certainly be satisfying. :monster:

Brie Larson doing character research :awesomonster:

The Twilight Mexican 08/07/2016 08:07 AM

I'll be in my bunk ... doing character research.

Tennyo 08/08/2016 04:02 AM

She's so cute. <3

I need to know where to get that shirt though...

Hey now that's my line!

Chloe Frazer 10/11/2016 11:22 PM

The Captain Marvel movie will be an origin story after all

The Twilight Mexican 10/12/2016 03:58 AM

Good. I thought it was silly to even consider doing it otherwise.

Tennyo 10/12/2016 04:06 AM

I wonder if Carol will appear before then, though. Maybe as a pilot?

Tetsujin 04/19/2017 06:47 PM

Captain Marvel to be directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck

I'm probably not the only one who has never heard of them but I trust in Marvel's choices :monster:

Chloe Frazer 04/20/2017 03:08 AM

*googles Mississippi Grind*

For a Marvel connection Alfre Woodard was in it.

Tetsujin 07/23/2017 02:03 AM

MCU panel is currently happening and they revealed this will take place in the early 90s. Also, Nick Fury is in it (with both eyes intact).
Villains will be the Skrulls.

Tennyo 07/23/2017 02:35 AM


Oh myyyyyyy...

Ghost X 07/23/2017 02:44 AM

That green dude on the left looks like the villain from lazy town.

Tetsujin 07/23/2017 03:19 AM

Tennyo 07/23/2017 03:54 AM

So wait a sec. The early 90s? Carol has been bummin' around with her powers since the early 90s in this universe?

Where has she even been?

X-SOLDIER 07/23/2017 10:44 AM

I cannot believe they managed to get a hold of the Skrulls legally. That's fucking spectacular!!

X :neo:

Tetsujin 07/23/2017 10:47 AM

Skrulls were always co-owned with Fox according to James Gunn. Fox owns specific Skrulls though.

X-SOLDIER 07/23/2017 10:49 AM

Ah, ok. That stuff is always interesting to see how it breaks down — especially after it seemed like they weren't gonna be able ta use them. I'm super stoked.

More and different versions of pics

X-SOLDIER 07/24/2017 11:54 PM

Interesting speculation if the Skrulls had shown up earlier and laying groundworks for Secret Invasion type things: I'd be down for that.

X :neo:

Tennyo 07/25/2017 11:09 AM

Secret Invasion would be cool, but I'd be kind of peeved if it was revealed that a prominent character has DUN DUN DUN been a Skrull the whole time. They could start replacing people slowly, though.

Is that Mentok? THE MIND TAKER!

Marvel, don't make me wait a full two years for Carol gosh darnit

Jude Law Lands Male Lead Opposite Brie Larson

I am conflicted...

Tetsujin 01/25/2018 09:09 PM

Captain Marvel in costume on set

Ryushikaze 01/25/2018 09:14 PM

I like the cut, but I do not like the color. It makes me think of the Green Lantern movie. Granted, it could be green so they can do some interesting nifty CG stuff to her suit when she uses her powers. That'd be cool if they have her go Binary at any point.

I shall wait and see.

X-SOLDIER 01/25/2018 09:16 PM

I was surprised by the green, but it makes more sense if it was for allowing post-production effects work on the suit.

X :neo:

Tetsujin 01/25/2018 09:33 PM

I'm positive it has nothing to do with CG tbh.

What makes ya so certain? (Screenrant has a whole article of reasons)

The main concept art looked like standard comic version:

It's just surprising is all, but it does make her stand out from the general overwhelming motif of the red, black, & blue costume schemes that seemingly ALL THE OTHER heroes have.

X :neo:

Tetsujin 01/25/2018 10:12 PM

I'm no expert obviously but the way I see it is if you wanna CG over the costume it'd make more sense to keep it as close to what you want the final result to look like in terms of design and color so that the CG artists have a direct reference to how the light in the shot reflects off of the material and how the color looks in that light etc.
Spider-Man's and Black Panther's suits iirc were pretty much completely CG'd over in Civil War and I imagine it would've actually been harder to do that accurately if they wore green suits.
Also, her outfit has a lot of texture and like dirt and such on the shiny green parts which also seems like it would be counterproductive for a proper green screen effect.

I could be wrong ofc :awesomonster:

Tennyo 01/25/2018 11:36 PM

*internal fangirl screaming*

Tetsujin 01/26/2018 12:38 PM

Also, correction: Avengers 4 recently wrapped, Captain Marvel is now in the first week of shooting so this is most likely from that.

Tennyo 01/26/2018 11:10 PM

BTW I had that exact same haircut in highschool circa 2000, 2001. XD

X-SOLDIER 01/26/2018 11:16 PM

Further proof that you = mega cool.

My thought is letting it ripple with color to show Carol's energy powers in action.
Or hoping it's a pre- "Marvel" suit, since IIRC, Carol Danvers is still a hotshot pilot in the MCU before the chance encounter with an alien gives her superpowers.

(Now I'm imagining this film being an accidental take that to Green Lantern, doing everything right where it screwed up.)

Tennyo 01/29/2018 05:21 PM

IMHO the green is Kree-related since the Kree sometimes wear green and Mar-Vel had a green costume at one point as well.

It'll be the proper colors by the end of the movie.

JechtShotMK9 01/29/2018 07:47 PM

Does anyone else prefer the old Ms. Marvel/Warbird costume? The black and yellow, not the original one?

Tbh, I haven't really cared about the character since they revamped her after House of M.

The Twilight Mexican 01/30/2018 06:30 PM

There have been a ton of poor decisions made with the character in recent years, but I thought the revamp right after "House of M" was a great decision. She hadn't really been used much for a while prior to that, so it was this which brought her back to prominence -- and it was a good foundation to set a character upon: she simply chose to be the hero she had been in an alternate history, even with all her real history's baggage.

I do prefer that black and yellow costume, by the way, but have never really minded the other one.

Tennyo 01/30/2018 08:16 PM

I like the look of the original costume when it is portrayed without that silly tummy window/whatever (how was that ever appealing?). And sometimes I do miss the black with the lighting bolt because that was very striking and kind of badass. But I also love her current costume as well both as a better foil to when Mar-Vel wore his more iconic costume that was similar but also it has a vibe to it that reminds me of a cartoon I used to watch as a kid *coughrainbowbritecough*

As for Carol post House of M I agree with Tres: she became a stronger, more confident individual, which is something that sometimes surfaces as a character flaw (i.e. sometimes she overcompensates which imho is very relatable)

I highly suggest reading Kelly Sue DeConnick's run on Captain Marvel. DeConnick is responsible for Carol becoming who she is now and her entire run was pretty fab in my opinion. Carol is still enjoyable now although the current writer can't hold a candle to DeConnick (not that she's horrible by any means DeConnick is just on another level).

HOWEVER I admit I still haven't delved too deeply into Civil War II mostly because it seemed like a cheap cash grab and sounded horrible. Not only that but I've heard a lot of people say that story ruined Carol and I just caaaaaan't bring myself to risk not liking her anymore. :( Sometimes I wonder if the looming threat of Civil War II is what made DeConnick leave kind of like how One More Day caused JMS to nope out of Amazing Spider-Man but that's only conjecture on my part (maybe she was just ready to step away). It's probably best that she jumped ship before that all went down.
