Captain Marvel Will Be Set in the ’90s and Other Details from SDCC

While Marvel Studios didn’t have any Captain Marvel footage to screen at San Diego Comic-Con, they did share some interesting details during the MCU panel. Like how it’s set in the early 1990s, for one, and some badass concept art.

Samuel L. Jackson will reprise his role as Nick Fury, but this time around he’ll have both eyes. Even more shocking, Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) will be fighting Skrulls! This will mark the aliens’ first appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Twitter account @Marvel__News tweeted out some decent shots of the other pieces of concept art:

While a version of the Avengers: Infinity War collage (which we mistakenly identified as the real thing) featuring Captain Marvel circulated online during SDCC, the correct version does not feature the character; Anthony Russo later confirmed with EW that Captain Marvel will not be appearing in the film.

Larson did not attend SDCC like last year—when she made a surprise appearance to announce the casting—but she was excitedly retweeting bits of news and responding to fan questions like “Are you ready to kick some asses?”:

Captain Marvel comes to theaters March 8, 2019.
