Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige is the master of the non-answer, having instilled an iron-clad culture around Marvel secrets and its stars. But Feige kindly loosened his lips a little and gave geeks something to look forward to at this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con.
While fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe gawked over the new Black Panther footage and Thor: Ragnarok trailer, they got a small glimpse and some juicy details about the upcoming Captain Marvel, Marvel’s first solo female superhero movie starring Brie Larson. The big surprise was its setting — Captain Marvel is going to be set in the ’90s, and feature a pre-eye patch Nick Fury.
