Before fans get to discover how all of the cliffhangers Avengers: Infinity War left us with will be resolved in next year's Avengers: Endgame, they will be transported back to the past of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain Marvel.
While it was announced a good while ago that the Brie Larson-starring film would take place in the '90s, the trailers for the film confirmed that fact by revealing that, like Captain America: The First Avenger before it, the movie would effectively be one long flashback story. Already, we've seen that the old video chain store Blockbuster makes a cameo in the film, and that Carol Danvers' musical tastes are keeping in line with the decade the film is set in -- but what about the rest of Captain Marvel? How does it lean into its setting?
Well, according to the movie's editor Debbie Berman, Captain Marvel won't just feature nods to the '90s -- it might actually feel like a movie from that era sometimes. "The entire film won't necessarily feel edited like the '90s style of filmmaking," Berman, who has previously edited MCU films such as Spider-Man: Homecoming and Black Panther, said. "But there may be some sequences that make you feel like you're watching a '90s movie."
"It was such a joyous decade for a lot of things," she added. "So we're leaning into that wherever we can."
On top of revealing Captain Marvel's origin in the MCU, the film will also feature a young Nick Fury as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent as well as a returning Phil Coulson. Given that Captain Marvel takes place in the past, the movie will likely reveal more about the secret agency and how it became the Fury-led operation we saw in 2008's Iron Man.
While her origin story may be told in the MCU's '90s, Captain Marvel will return in the present day to help Earth's Mightiest Heroes fight back against the Mad Titan, Thanos, in Avengers: Endgame.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
