MCU’s “Captain Marvel” Starts Filming, Clark Gregg Returning as Agent Coulson to Cinemas

There are still two movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe set to premiere before the year 2018 is out, but already there’s quite the attention being directed to the first installment of the franchise for next year. That is, of course, Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson, coming early in 2019.

And even better, Marvel Entertainment just announced this week that filming, that is principal photography, for Captain Marvel has finally begun. Said press release comes with the first official blurb of the MCU movie’s plot.

In the 1990s, Air Force pilot Carol Danvers (Larson) is accidentally imbued with super powers, making her into Earth’s greatest defender, which finds itself caught in the middle of a war between two alien races.

Captain Marvel has already generated a lot of hype from longtime MCU fans due to it featuring the return of Samuel L. Jackson as his character Nick Fury, last seen back in Avengers: Age of Ultron. But a new development of the production would have it that another familiar face of Phase-1 MCU will also be coming back after five seasons of television. Yes, Clark Gregg is also returning to reprise his role as SHIELD agent Phil Coulson, at last.

As for the star, Brie Larson, she’s already begun immersing herself with her character of Carol Danvers and her military surroundings. Marvel Entertainment also posted a photo of her doing that, on the cockpit of a fighter jet in Nellis AFB, Nevada, with Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt, 57th Wing Commander.

Captain Marvel will be the penultimate film of the MCU’s Phase-3, which will end later in 2019 with the still-untitled Avengers 4 movie. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has intimated that this will serve as a soft reset of the whole franchise, with the longtime MCU cast retiring their roles.
