Captain Marvel: Starforce Revealed

Captain Marvel: Starforce Revealed

Currently, Ant-Man and the Wasp is Marvel's first movie that includes a female hero in the title, while Captain Marvel starring Academy Award victor Brie Larson is the studio's first female-led superhero film. And it is less a story of, 'Oh, look, a female hero, ' and it's more a story of, 'Oh, what's this about?

But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past.

The movie is expected to reveal how Fury and Captain Marvel meet. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more risky by their shape-shifting abilities. Captain Marvel's suit is looking rather badass, too.

One of the pictures (below) shows the green-skinned alien Skrull race on a beach, including Ben Mendelsohn as their leader Talos. This will be the first time a superheroine will lead a Marvel film. "She is thrown into many a situation in this movie that she's never been a part of, never seen, never experienced - and she just learns it, immediately". That allows the film to introduce younger version of familiar Marvel faces - like Jackson's Nick Fury, who's still a two-eyed S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey - as well as let Carol carve out her own, unique space in the MCU. "But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity - and all of its messiness".

Jon Kyl appointed to take John McCain's Senate seat
Jeff Flake, the other senator from Arizona , offered Kyl his blessing shortly after the news of his appointment made public. However, he had said anyone who lobbied for the appointment before the senator's death would be disqualified.

Captain Marvel is set to arrive in theaters on March 8, 2019.

Co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind), Captain Marvel also stars Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson as well as Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, Mckenna Grace, Robert Kazinsky, Annette Bening, Vik Sahay, Colin Ford, and Chuku Modu.

The film's Starforce adds Lee Pace as warlord Ronan the Accuser, reprising his role from 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy".
