While attending the premiere for ‘Avengers: Infinity War,’ Marvel Studios’ own Kevin Feige provided an update on ‘Captain Marvel,’ teasing the origin of Carol Danvers and where Nick Fury is at when the film begins.
‘Avengers: Infinity War’ will begin the conclusion of 10 years’ worth of stories, but the Marvel Cinematic Universe is ready to feature some new faces. Specifically, fans will be seeing Carol Danvers, a.k.a Captain Marvel, make her big screen debut next year.
Feige says the character’s MCU origin will be quite inspiring, saying:
“You’re going to get the most powerful superhero we’ve ever introduced and what I think is one of the most unique and inspiring origin stories.”
Aside from commenting on the titular hero, Feige also discussed the movie’s 90s setting and where Nick Fury is at since the movie takes place near the Cold War:
“Being able to tap into Carol Danvers story for the very first time — to bring that to the screen and tap into an era of the MCU we’ve never been in the ‘90s. To see a version of Nick Fury who has reached a point in his career where he thought the Cold War’s over and the best days are behind him”
Check out a clip of Feige’s interview:

This means that the Nick Fury fans will see at the start of the film will be quite different from the one seen in films like ‘The Avengers.’ Will he have both eyes!? Of course, Feige also said that what happens to the character in ‘Captain Marvel’ will set him on the path to where he is “19 films later.”
Here is an official synopsis for ‘Captain Marvel:’
