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.

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.

But it seems like Fantastic Beasts is playing the long game: in Fantastic Beasts 2 Dumbledore and Grindelwald will share no scenes together.
