'Captain Marvel' Begins Production; Sees Return of Familiar Cast

Captain Marvel has officially begun principle photography in Los Angeles, California, Marvel Studios has announced. Filming will also shoot on location in Fresno, CA as well as locations in Baton Rouge and New Orleans Louisiana.

Furthermore, Marvel Studios has announced the cast list for the film and there are some familiar names. As the film is set in the 1990s, it no surprise we're seeing the return of Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, presumably before he lost his eye, as well as his right-hand man, Clark Gregg's Agent Coulsen. Most interesting to note is that the film also starts bother Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou, both who appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy as Ronan the Accuser and Korath.

Fans of the comics know that Ronan is of Kree descent, and Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson, inherits her powers from the Kree alien Captain Mar-vell, played by Jude Law, to become Captain Marvel. I wouldn't be surprised if we see some backstory of Ronan before he becomes the power-hungry radical bent on destroying the planet of Xandar.

The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, and McKenna Grace, and is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. It will be released on March 8, 2019.
