Captain Marvel set in the early 90s
The news was revealed at the San Diego Comic-Con by Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has revealed that the upcoming superhero film Captain Marvel will be set in the early 1990s. At his appearance at San Diego Comic-Con, Feige said that directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's film will show Carol Danvers and her alter ego, played by Brie Larson, fighting enemies almost three decades ago.
He added that the reason for the time setting is that it's an era that hasn't been explored in the Marvel Comic Universe (MCU). "Almost anything else is a spoiler other than to say that the 90s would be a fun period to make a superhero movie in," Feige said."I graduated high school in 1991, and the thought that I'm now making a period piece is unbelievable. How old am I now? It's just gonna be a lot of fun," he added.
At Comic-Con it was also revealed that the main villains in the movie will be the Skrulls, an extraterrestrial race of shapeshifters hellbent on invading and conquering Earth. Captain Marvel will also star Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
