Kevin Feige Talks Captain Marvel


During a recent interview with Variety, President and film producer Kevin Feige shared some details on the upcoming Captain Marvel film. The film is set to hit theaters March 8, 2019:

Feige on using a female director: “Having a female director at the helm to tell the story of a woman who is also our most powerful hero by far is very important to us…If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film.”

Feige on the casting of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers: “With Captain Marvel, who has powers that approach a level that we haven’t seen before in our films, you need to counter- balance that by finding somebody who is also very human and very relatable and can get into a groove with the audience, where they’re willing to see her fly through the sun and punch a moon away from a spacecraft. At the same time, we need her to land and have relatable flaws. Brie is a person you’re going to want to go on this journey with, just like Benedict or Robert or Chris Pratt.”
