Captain Marvel : A plot largely in space ?

Well, given that we know Nick Fury has some experience with the weird and wacky before he'd even heard of the likes of Iron Man, Loki and the Tesseract, and that we also know that Captain Marvel will face off against the Skrulls, it's pretty interesting.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige explained that Captain Marvel is really leaning into its '90s setting. If fans hope to get a first glimpse of Carol Danvers in Avengers Infinity War, the chances of success are slim, but fortunately the details on the plot are more and more numerous, which help us to wait. So we won't see Samuel L. Jackson donning an eye patch. While some have speculated that the cast will play a part in showing how Fury lost his eye to become the pirate-esque hero that everyone knows from the MCU, others aren't quite so sure.

"... The action elements Terminator 2. That's about as iconic as you get, looking at kind of those cool street level fights, street level auto chases, and fun stuff like that".

He said moving back in the timeline "got us talking about different genres, exploring this notion of sort of the '90s action film".

We hadn't necessarily done anything like that before either, so there are definitely homages to our favourite '90s action films within Captain Marvel...

Explosion targets Palestinian PM's convoy as it enters Gaza Strip
Hamas and Abbas's Palestinian Authority are still divided over how to implement an Egyptian-brokered reconciliation deal. Radical Islamists opposed to Hamas also operate within the Gaza Strip and have regularly been behind unrest there.


However, simply because they're looking at a relatively earthbound sci-fi action movie as a reference point doesn't mean it will bring us the same kind of story. In the comments of the picture, rumors are rife that Nick is about to undergo a BIG change in Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's movie.

As the penultimate movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Phase 3, Captain Marvel will see the long-awaited arrival of Brie Larson in the titular role of Carol Danvers. "Like all of our genre inspirations, there are bits and pieces here and there".

Captain Marvel is set to release March 8, 2019, and with that amount of time hopefully they can do justice to this image intense film.

Notably, if Fury is a Skrull, it could have major ramifications for all of the MCU, and also mean that the S.H.I.E.L.D. boss that fans have come to know and love over the past decade isn't who he says he is at all.
