The Shape-Shifting Bad Guys in Captain Marvel Could Masquerade as Anyone

Captain Marvel is slated for release March 8, 2019. While it's still quite a ways off and they're still probably casting and putting the finishing touches on the script, Marvel has some nice tidbits to share.

What's particularly odd, and potentially fascinating, about the movie Captain Marvel concept - which isn't present at all in the comic book version, where Carol Danvers was always a contemporary character - is how clearly it echoes the Captain America narrative: A hero from the past who disappears from the world before re-emerging as a hero out of time... perhaps.

He also confirmed the return of Jackson, wryly noting that we will see both of Nick Fury's eyes in the film. According to the comic books, the Skrulls are known for their shape shifting power.

Captain Marvel is now scheduled for release in March 2019, so it'll probably be a while before we get any more teases about the contents of the film.

The Marvel Studios panel at San Diego Comic-Con revealed a whole heap of tantalizing details about Captain Marvel, the upcoming movie starring Brie Larson that will be the MCU's first female-led film. The events of the film will take place before he was blinded in one eye - and might even reveal the backstory for his injury. (Wait a second; we'll get there.) Is Brie Larson's Danvers being set up as a potential equal-but-opposite character for Chris Evans' star-spangled icon - or, perhaps, his replacement?

First up, we now know that the pic will not be a contemporary piece but will be set in the 1990s. Based on Saturday's concept art, it looks like they'll be green and kind of orc-like. Interestingly, Skrulls have traditionally shown up in Fantastic Four comics, and so their movie rights are co-owned by Fox and Marvel.

So, how does Captain Marvel figure into the MCU, especially since its a prequel? It raises the question of whether or not Larson will be playing a much younger version of Captain Marvel in her solo film.
