While Captain Marvel may not be the most anticipated Marvel movie coming in the next 5 years, the casting announcement for who will bring fan favorite Carol Danvers to life certainly is. Danvers took up the mantle of Captain Marvel in 2012 and has gained many devoted fans who refer to themselves as members of the ” Carol Corps“, all who have been eagerly awaiting any news from the upcoming film. Well, the wait is nearly over!
Marvel Studios President, Kevin Feige revealed during the Captain America: Civil War press release that talent announcements are imminent.
“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,” Feige told Fandango. That timeframe makes a Captain Marvelannouncement a very real possibility for this year’s San Diego Comic Con.
Though Feige did speak very vaguely when asked about the movie, he did say that the film will be about “Carol Danvers and that journey to being Captain Marvel”.
Captain Marvel is currently set to release theatrically on July 6th, 2018.
