Captain Marvel Cast

Captain Marvel has been shooting for a few weeks now, but Marvel Studios has just sent out a press release announcing the start of production. That press release also includes the full cast for the film starring Brie Larson as the new cosmic superhero of the title, and it includes a couple characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and a beloved character we haven’t seen since he was killed off in The Avengers in 2012. In fact, all three of these characters are dead in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Captain Marvel is a prequel set in the ’90s. All bets are off.
