Marvel Studios is nearly done filming its next big movie, and I don’t mean Avengers 4. Following the release of Ant-Man and the Wasp (July 6), Marvel will wrap filming for Captain Marvel, according to co-director Ryan Fleck. The film is currently scheduled to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
“That’s a wrap on Captain Marvel,” Fleck said on Instagram. “Off to Louisiana for final 2 weeks. So close…”
Since Brie Larson was announced to play Captain Marvel in 2016, fans have been eagerly awaiting her arrival in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She was teased briefly at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, but we’ve yet to actually see her appear onscreen.
When she does make her debut next year, Captain Marvel will be the strongest superhero in the MCU, according to Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige, with abilities such as superhuman strength, speed, and flight.
Captain Marvel will take place in the ‘90s, well before the events of Avengers: Infinity War. While we don’t know too much about the movie’s plot, Feige previously said it will be loosely based on the Kree-Skrull war. Additionally, we know that Nick Fury will be in the film.
With filming not yet finished, don’t expect a teaser anytime soon. Marvel is going to skip out on San Diego Comic-Con, and Feige recently said nothing will be shown off until the end of the year at the earliest.
Starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Lee Pace, Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
