Like Black Panther, fans have been demanding a Captain Marvel movie for quite some time now, and in 2018 Carol Danvers will finally make the leap to the big screen.
It’s about time, and while Warner Bros. will be the first to give a female superhero their own movie with Wonder Woman in 2017, this is still a significant move. Captain Marvel’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe could greatly alter the shape of that world in the years to come, both in regards to the Earth and cosmic set releases which come from the studio.
We take you through everything you need to know about both the character and what could be in store for Captain Marvel when she makes her big screen debut (possibly sooner than you think). Regardless of whether it’s the costume, her status as a member of The Avengers or her origin, you’ll find it all here.
10. She Hasn’t Always Been “Captain” Marvel…
Carol Danvers has gone by a number of names over the years, with the first – and longest running – being Ms. Marvel. That’s the name the character has become most closely associated with, but during the course of decades worth of Marvel history, she’s also been called Binary and Warbird.
However, it was in 2012 that the comic book company decided to rebrand and relaunch Carol as Captain Marvel and while Warbird could have worked as this movie’s title, Kevin Feige definitely made the right choice by using this latest moniker for her big screen debut. It also seems fitting to have a character called Captain Marvel in their Cinematic Universe.
