Set in 1995, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, former fighter pilot of the US Air Force.

Captain Marvel (Cast)
Brie Larson as Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel):
An ex-American. Air Force fighter pilot and member of an elite Kree military unit called Starforce. His DNA merged with that of a Kree during an accident, endowing it with superhuman strength, energy projection and flight. Larson described Danvers as a “believer in truth and justice” and a “bridge between Earth and space,” which must balance his “carefree” side of Kree who is an “incredible fighter” with his “imperfect” human half. “What is” the thing “? that she ends up leading by. “Larson also called Danvers the aggressive, fast-tempered, invasive attributes that help her in a fight but turn out to be character flaws.Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said Larson was chosen because of his ability to balance the vast powers of the character with his humanity, due to the concern that Larson (who was 26 years old when she was chosen) was too young to play the successful pilot Danvers, the initial screenwriter Nicole Perlman consulted with the Air Force and said that it is possible for someone to “get very far” between the ages of 28. and 34. Larson trained for nine months for the role, learning judo, boxing and wrestling, and also visited Nellis Air Force Base and met with active duty aviators, including Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt and the Thunderbirds pilot, Commander Stephen Del Bagno, in preparation for the job. Ace plays a young Carol Danvers.
Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury):
The future director of S.H.I.E.L.D., who at the moment is a low level bureaucrat. Fury appears without its eye patch, since the film develops before it loses its eye. Feige explained that Danvers is the first superhero that Fury has found, which places him on the path to where the character is in modern MCU movies. Jackson described Fury at this time as a desk rider, who has not yet become cynical about bureaucracy and who learns in the film that there are superpowerful beings who could help the cause of S.H.I.E.L.D. Jackson was digitally aged for 25 years, the first time Marvel has done this for a full movie.
Ben Mendelsohn (Talos):
The shape-shifting leader of the Skrull invasion of the Earth, who is working in a covert manner within S.H.I.E.L.D. as head of fury Mendelsohn described the human person of Talos as “buttoned” compared to his Skrull person “more relaxed”. Mendelsohn differentiated between the two using an American accent inspired by politician Donald Rumsfeld for human disguise, and his native Australian accent for Talos; the latter was chosen, after a “long discussion”, due to what Mendelsohn called an “earthly correction”. The makeup and prostheses needed to portray Talos took “a couple of hours” to apply.
Djimon Hounsou (Korath):
A mercenary from Kree and a member of Starforce. Hounsou explained that Korath was “in his childhood” in the film compared to his appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy (2014), but that he was “still a machine without humor”.
Lee Pace as Ronan (The Accuser):
a senior Kree official who is a fan of his culture and practices.
Lashana Lynch (Maria Rambeau):
One of Danvers’ oldest friends and a fellow Air Force pilot who goes through the distinctive call “Photon”. She is the single mother of her daughter Monica. Lynch described Rambeau as “resilient” and someone “whom you do not feel you need to help.” Larson called Rambeau “the representation of love” in the film and “an incredible badass”. She described the friendship between Danvers and Rambeau as equal, with “a lively competitiveness [and a] mutual respect”. Like Larson, Lynch met with aviators on active duty in preparation for the role. In particular, he met with pilots who are also mothers. Lynch was excited to represent a character that the audience would be proud of and could relate to, especially mothers and members of the black community, helping to continue “a true line of passage” for African-American characters in the MCU after Black Panther. (2018).
Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva):
A sniper from Kree and a member of Starforce. Chan explained that Minn-Erva was “the star of Starforce” before Danvers joined the team and “is slightly threatened by someone who has come and is also very talented”.
Annette Bening as a Kree scientist who rescued Danvers and made her part of Kree.
Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson):
A novice agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. that works closely with Fury. Gregg said that Coulson would be younger in the film and “a bit like a new kid in SHIELD … It’s the earliest we’ll see him [in the MCU], so when he says: ‘Mr. Stark, this is not’ In my first rodeo ‘in Iron Man (2008), this is perhaps the rodeo he is talking about. ” He felt that “there was something really special about going back to the first days when [Coulson] was rising in rank” and he had to work to portray Coulson “a little less crispy and tired”, since he is in the MCU’s present. Like Jackson, Gregg was digitally aged for 25 years.
Jude Law (Mar-Vell):
The commander of Starforce and the mentor of Danvers, who trains her to use her new powers. Law said his character is “driven by a belief in the divine leadership of the people of Kree, so he is almost a devout warrior: unquestioning, conservative, but inspiring.” Law also stated that his character has a special relationship with Danvers, whom he sees as an apprentice, which becomes a source of tension in the film with the other Starforce members. Robert Downey Jr., who plays Tony Stark in the MCU films and co-starred with Law in Sherlock Holmes (2009) and its sequel (2011), advised him on how to work with Marvel before Law took part.
In addition, Algenis Pérez Soto and Rune Temte interpret Att-Lass and Bron-Char, respectively, both members of Starforce. Robert Kazinsky, Vik Sahay, Colin Ford, Chuku Modu and Kenneth Mitchell have been chosen in undisclosed roles. Stan Lee, co-creator of the first Captain Marvel, has a posthumous cameo in the film. Danvers’ comic cat, Chewie (named after the character of Star Wars Chewbacca), appears in the film, whose name was changed to Goose by the character of Top Gun (1986) Nick “Goose” Bradshaw.
Captain Marvel (Production)
Marvel hired Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to lead Captain Marvel in April 2017, after the duo impressed the studio “over and over” in numerous encounters with their vision of the character, and their experience working on both television like in movies.
Feige said he and Marvel were particularly impressed with Boden and Fleck’s ability to create character-based stories in all of their works, adding: “The stories they told have been very diverse, but regardless of the subject, they can dive in. and point in that character’s journey”.
Ultimately, Feige felt that the film “has to be about the three-dimensional and multi-layered character of Carol Danvers, you have to be able to follow her and follow her and relate to her at all points in the film, regardless of how many visual effects and The space ships and the bad guys are filling the picture”.
Filming was scheduled to begin in January 2018, at Pinewood Atlanta Studios in Fayette County, Georgia, but Feige said he did not expect it to start until February.
It was confirmed that the additional photograph had begun through still photos at the end of November 2018. With the launch of the theater poster in early December, Marvel updated the writing credits for the film, recognizing Perlman and the writing team of Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse for the story, with Boden, Fleck, Robertson-Dworet and Jac Schaeffer receiving script credit.
Schaeffer was previously hired by Marvel, in early 2018, to write the script for his planned film Black Widow. The poster was followed shortly after by a trailer that revealed that Bening’s role was that of a Kree involved in Danvers’ past. Visual effects for the film were created by Animal Logic, Creative Cantina, Digital Domain, Framestore, Industrial Light & Magic, Lola VFX, Luma Pictures, RISE, Rising Sun Pictures, Scanline VFX and Trixter, with Lola VFX working on the design.
