What do we know about Marvel’s first female-led superhero film Captain Marvel? As it turns out, not a whole lot. But that’s set to change sometime this summer — although Marvel chief Kevin Feige is staying coy about any Captain Marvel news at the moment. “I think we’ll be announcing a filmmaker in the next month or two, and probably some cast members later in the summer, at the end of the summer,” he told Fandango last April.
Here’s everything else we know so far:
1. It’s set to arrive in 2019, and she’ll likely be in Avengers: Infinity War
Captain Marvel was previously scheduled for a summer 2018 release date when Marvel released their phase three timeline, but it has now been pushed back a year to March 8, 2019. This would place the film in-between the two-part Avengers: Infinity War, and less than two months before Part 2. The placement also suggests that Captain Marvel will appear in Infinity Wars Part 2 if she’s not introduced in Infinity Wars Part 1 as a lead up to the standalone. As Cinema Blend notes, Captain Marvel will now be the first Marvel film of 2019 and will hopefully set the tone for the year to come.
