Captain Marvel was first announced in 2014, but it won’t hit theaters until 2019, which is why progress on the film has felt like such painfully slow going. Still, Marvel took a very encouraging step forward this summer when they confirmed Brie Larson as the lead superhero. Now the next big task will be locking down a director, which Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says they’ll do by the end of the year.
In a new interview, he explains why it’s taken them so long to find a Captain Marvel director, and what to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first solo leading female superhero. Here’s a hint: he describes Carol Danvers a.k.a. Captain Marvel as “by far the strongest character we’ve had.” Read More »

Movies like Captain America: Civil War and Suicide Squad simply wouldn’t have existed a decade ago.
And because of this shift, origin stories have become something of a dirty word. They’re passé. We can now meet a new Peter Parker and just accept that this guy is Spider-Man and get going. So the news that Captain Marvel will be an origin story is interesting…and it actually says something about the state of the modern superhero movie.
