Why Nick Fury Waited So Long To Call Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel

Spoilers for Avengers: Infinity War…

The eleventh-hour call that Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) made to Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) in the end credits of Avengers: Infinity War was a doozy of a scene that mostly served to hype up audiences for Carol Danvers’ highly-anticipated solo venture in 2019.

But as exciting as that moment was, it also throws a wrench into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s canon. Why did Fury wait so long to call a superhero who has been teased as one of the most powerful characters in the MCU? Why not whip out that communicator six years earlier like in, oh say, Avengers‘ Battle of New York? Yeah, we probably won’t find out the real reason until Captain Marvel hits theaters in March 2019, but the Captain Marvel Prelude comic reveals a few more answers about that last-minute Nick Fury Captain Marvel call.

You may want to start dusting off those Metroid movie scripts and see if there are any hidden gems waiting to be found. Read More »

Captain Marvel chronological

Yesterday, Disney and Marvel released the first trailer for next year’s highly-anticipated Captain Marvel, the first Marvel Studios film to feature a solo female lead. We took a close look at it in our trailer breakdown, but one fan went above and beyond and re-edited the entire thing into what they think is chronological order – not the order in which events will unfold in the movie, but rather tracking Carol Danvers’ (Brie Larson) journey from childhood into ultimately becoming one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But here’s the most obvious, most important question that emerges from all of this: where does “punching an old woman in the face” fall on Carol’s timeline? You’ll have to watch the Captain Marvel chronological re-edit to find out. Read More »

captain marvel phil coulson

When we first meet fan-favorite character Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) in Iron Man, he barely blinks an eye at the sight of metal flying men and gods of thunder. “This isn’t my first rodeo, Mr. Stark,” he says calmly to Robert Downey Jr.’s billionaire superhero.

But Captain Marvel will take us back to that first rodeo — or at least one of Coulson’s early rodeos. More importantly, it will show us the first meeting between Coulson and his longtime boss, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). And more exciting than the ’90s fashion and de-aging that we’ll get to see in Captain Marvel is the prospect of what Gregg teases as a “meet-cute” between Coulson and Fury.

Captain Marvel

This week has already brought our first look at Captain Marvel, the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Plenty of new details on the movie were revealed, but there’s one element of the movie that remains shrouded in mystery.

While Brie Larson is playing the titular superhero, an Air Force pilot named Carol Danvers who has left Earth to join a cosmic team called Starforce, it’s the character described as her mentor and the team’s leader we should be paying attention to. Jude Law plays the commander of Starforce, and for some reason, Marvel has declined to reveal the name of his character. What’s that about? Read More »

Captain Marvel Photos

Hot on the heels of the first look at Brie Larson suited up as Captain Marvel, the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have a whole batch of new photos from the Marvel Studios production.

Captain Marvel follows an Air Force pilot named Carol Danvers who has turned space cop in an elite unit called Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. They’re described as the SEAL Team Six of space, which would explain why we see them confronting Kree radical Ronan the Accuser in a new image. However, you Guardians of the Galaxy fans out there might raise your eyebrow at one of the team members on Starforce. Check out all the new Captain Marvel photos below. Read More »
