Ant-Man and The Wasp comes out in less than 2 weeks, but after that the MCU is on hiatus until March. March is when Captain Marvel comes out, and fans are already clamoring for more: Pictures, trailers, posters, anything.
Kevin Feige, the man who makes all of this happen, talked to ComicBook.com about when we can expect more Captain Marvel stuff:
“I think there’s still a few months on it,” Feige said, despite the movie quickly nearing production completion. “You already know as much as you need to,” Feige said of the film’s plot. “We’ve got Skrulls, we’ve got the Kree, it takes place in the 90s, you have Sam Jackson with two eyes and Carol Danvers, a unique telling of Carol Danvers origin story. We are about two weeks out from completion of principal photography.”
So don’t expect anything soon. If I had to guess I would say maybe a teaser at D23 in August, and a full trailer attached to Mary Poppins Returns in December.
Captain Marvel is going to be one of the MCU’s most important movies. Not only is her history important, but so will her role in Avengers 4 and beyond. I can see her becoming the new face of the franchise once Robert Downey Jr. calls it quits.
Feige is also looking at the future:
“I mean, all of the things you’ve seen throughout Phases 1 and 2 and now through much of 3, the new characters always are important going forward in driving, shaping the future of the MCU,” Feige said. “I think it would be amazing, another 10 years; another 20 films or so. We only focus on one step at a time but that’s all about continuing to surprise with the stories, go unexpected places, continue to play with new, fresh, unexpected genres and then introduce characters that people might have heard of or a beloved big fan base like Captain Marvel or characters like Guardians where before we made that, people had never even heard of them.”
So, while we are starved for information now, soon we will have more than we know what to do with.
Wait patiently, let Ant-Man and The Wasp hold you over, and Kevin Feige will take you on a marvelous journey.
Captain Marvel hits theaters in 2019.
