“Captain Marvel” Won’t Have A Familiar Origin


Next year’s “Captain Marvel” film on the surface would appear to be a classic origin film, but producer Nate Moore says the Brie Larson-led cosmic Marvel Studios entry will not be following the classic formula.

Indeed some of the more recent MCU origin films like “Doctor Strange” and “Ant-Man” scored criticism for their overfamiliarity, which is why Moore tells Cinema Blend that they have every intention to avoid the issue:

“I think there is a structure to origin films that audiences sometimes can get ahead of very quickly. So, if we do origin films, internally, we talk about how we can subvert that structure. For instance, Captain Marvel is an origin movie in that you haven’t seen her before, but we think we’ve stumbled upon a structure there that isn’t the traditional structure of what origin movies typically are, which is you meet the character, they have a problem, they get powers at the end of the first act, and the end of the second act they learn about the powers, the third act they probably fight a villain who has a function of the same powers.”

Moore would not reveal any details on just how the film plans to subvert those classic tropes. The comments come as “Chuck” scene-stealer Vik Sahay and “The Big Wedding” actress Ana Ayora have joined the cast, while co-star Clark Gregg has sung nothing but praise for Larson’s work on the film in a recent interview with People.

“Captain Marvel” opens in cinemas March 8th next year.

Pinar Toprak To Compose “Captain Marvel”


Pinar Toprak has been set as the composer of “Captain Marvel,” the upcoming Marvel Studios film starring Brie Larson as the most powerful hero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The project marks the first female-fronted film in the MCU, the first to be directed (or in this case co-directed) by a woman, and Toprak will be the first woman to score a feature for the studio.

The hiring comes as Larson has caused some fan talk with a recent E! Interview in which she described her characters as strong enough to “move planets” – which is more than her comic book counterpart ever did.

Toprak most recently was responsible for score work on both Syfy’s series “Krypton” and the popular video game “Fortnite”. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are directing “Captain Marvel” which is in production ahead of a March 8th 2019 release.

Stars Offer More “Captain Marvel” Details


In the wake of its cover story two weeks back, Entertainment Weekly has been chatting with numerous stars involved in the upcoming “Captain Marvel” movie at Marvel Studios and have learned quite a bit more about the film which is set in the 1990s and is skipping the origin story element.

The story follows former Air Force Pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) 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. So she must go undercover back on her old home planet to stop it.

Brie Larson plays the part-Kree, part-human titular warrior who has God-like powers but also is very human with aggressive, impulsive and hotheaded tendencies:

“You have this Kree part of her that’s unemotional, that is an amazing fighter and competitive. Then there’s this human part of her that is flawed but is also the thing that she ends up leading by. It’s the thing that gets her in trouble, but it’s also the thing that makes her great. And those two sides warring against each other is what makes her her.”

Jude Law plays the leader of the military team known as the Starforce. While his name remains under wraps, he’s said to be “Kree to the core” and “driven by a belief in the divine leadership of the Kree people.” As a result, he’s a devout warrior who is unquestioning, conservative and inspirational. At the same time, he has a special relationship with Carol, a mentor-protege deal which sees them engaged in a lot of back and forth.

Samuel L. Jackson will play a two-eyed Nick Fury in this and says this will be the moment where he first encounters a world of superheroes and aliens, and so tries to adapt:

“This is a mind-changing, attitude-changing moment for him that leads him to become the person that we know. He [now] understands that there are these other things out there. He understands that they’re not all enemies, and we do need to find allies who have specific kinds of skills that humans don’t have. And trying to convince people above him is a difficult task because they haven’t seen it or experienced it.”

Clark Gregg reprises his role of Agent Coulson, this version still a relatively new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent obsessed with MC Hammer and dresses like him, but in doing so makes Director Fury very angry – “The genie pants don’t really go with the Armani” says Gregg who adds the new version of Coulson is “a little less crusty and jaded”.

Ben Mendelsohn plays Talos, the villain of the piece and the leader of the shape-shifting Skrulls in the film and confirms he’ll be using his native Australian accent when in Skrull form and will adopt an American accent when in human guise. That human guise will be right in the thick of it too as he’s also Nick Fury’s boss. Talking his dual roles he says:

“I mean, when you’re Skrullin’, it’s a bit of a different thing. Its a got a certain flow to it that this guy [gestures to human costume] doesn’t have. Because this guy doesn’t sound like this. This guy is [adopts American accent] a lot more like, straight up, ready to do the work, very military-industrial complex certain 1990-whatever. A lot more buttoned up.

Skrullin’ is a bit more laid back, a bit tougher. A little bit nastier? Maybe? Maybe. You got sharper nails, stuff like that. The thing is, when you’re Skrullin’, there’s a kind of take-no-prisoners vibe about it, which is more relaxed. This guy’s got to follow protocol because it’s S.H.I.E.L.D. Skrullin’, you’re punching through shields. You’re taking shields off people and using them on people. So it’s kind of more fun to play.”

Executive producer Jonathan Schwartz says tone wise the production is going for the 1990s movie aesthetic ala “Terminator 2,” “Total Recall” and “Independence Day” – high-concept action films which are very character-based and aim to be “super badass”.

“Captain Marvel” opens in cinemas on March 8th 2019 with the first trailer to arrive via “Good Morning America” on Tuesday with Larson herself showing up on the talk show to show it off says MCU Tweets.

Marvel’s first film for the year FINALLY gives us a solo female superhero feature from the company, and while Brie Larson is a strong actress her character remains the biggest question mark of this 1990s-set tale as what little we’ve seen of her in the trailers haven’t exactly revealed much in way of traits beyond cockiness. Still, the character is a fan-favorite, and said to be the MCU’s most powerful, so between this and ‘Endgame’ a few weeks later we’ll have plenty of time to become more familiar. More importantly the film boasts the strong directing team of “Half Nelson” duo Anna Fleck & Ryan Boden, Ben Mendelsohn playing a Skrull villain with an Aussie accent, Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg having some de-aged fun, Annette Bening joining the MCU as an alien geneticist, plenty of 1990s references, and hopefully the ability to surprise us.
