Captain Marvel takes place in the 1990s, so expect to hear some era-appropriate music. Director Anna Boden teased that the film's soundtrack will have recognizable tunes from the decade, which she hopes will remind audiences of the past.
“We can't compete with Guardians of the Galaxy. [That] was its own special thing,” Boden told AMC Theaters. “But we do have a movie that takes place in the '90s, and you will hear some '90s music, hopefully stuff that reminds you of the past. We're playing a lot with songs that we forgot about or just haven't heard in a long time, but that really bring us back to a certain moment.”
Per earlier reports, Captain Marvel takes place in 1995. When Carol turns on the radio, she's likely to hear classics like "Gangsta's Paradise" by Coolio, "Waterfalls" by TLC or "Kiss From a Rose" by Seal -- all of which hit Billboard's Top 100 hits that year.
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 the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, and Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace and Annette Bening in as-yet-undisclosed roles. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
