While the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe epic Captain Marvel will feature the eponymous superhero defending Earth from warring extraterrestrial forces, the film will also see Brie Larson's character as a member of spacefaring, peacekeeping Starforce.
A new photo released by online movie ticketing site Fandango shows Starforce venturing into action with Jude Law's commander joined by Carol Danvers and Algenis Perez Soto as Starforce member Att-Lass.
Law's character was allegedly confirmed to be Mar-Vell in a retracted post on Disney's website for the film. Larson's Carol Danvers will usually be the field leader for the team but this official still has Mar-Vell join them instead of remaining at their base of operations.
Perez Soto's Att-Lass is the MCU incarnation of Captain Atlas. First created in 1992's Quasar #9 by Mark Gruenwald and Mike Manley, the character was a Kree warrior that served with Doctor Minerva in Starforce and fought the Avengers. Given that Gemma Chan will be portraying a version of the doctor as Minn-Erva, the two will likely face against Carol Danvers by the film's end.
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.
