Marvel’s ‘Iron Fist’ Set To Hit Comic-Con; No Show For ‘Captain Marvel’ & Film Side

Even though Marvel’s film side will be skipping Hall H this year for the first time since 2015, we’re hearing that big events are afoot in regards to the comic-book label’s TV unit with the Netflix series Iron Fist returning to San Diego Comic-Con next month.

Iron Fist star Finn Jones will be showing up and other cast members and producers are expected to join him to chat about the upcoming season 2. Jones is making a cameo in the upcoming season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage which drops June 22.

There’s also talk about putting together a Punisher panel for SDCC. It was announced today that Punisher star Jon Bernthal is making an appearance in the ninth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead, and if he’s headed to SDCC for that series, it’s quite conceivable there could be a panel for Punisher, which has shot a season 2, but has no premiere date yet.

Daredevil season 3 is also in a similar situation: The series is in the can, but there haven’t been any announcements about its premiere date. We also hear there are discussions going on for a possible Daredevil appearance at SDCC as well.

With Marvel’s big screen presence at zero this year, the tally of SDCC heaveyweights now finds the Disney-owned unit absent, HBO absent, and Starz absent. That said, Marvel overall is planning to make a splash at SDCC celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

It’s interesting that Marvel film has chosen to sit out this year’s Comic-Con as behind-the-scenes footage from Captain Marvel, due out March 8, and a clip of Tony Stark and Ant-Man’s Scott Lang from Avengers 4 (May 3) was recently released at CineEurope. Even though Marvel also has Spider-Man: Homecoming on July 5, 2019 as well as Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3 in the future, speculation is that should the Disney-Fox merger go through, it will solidify other features, possibly a rebooted X-Men, that Marvel would put into play from the 20th Century Fox library.

San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 19-22.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel

In Captain Marvel kämpft Carol Danvers alias Ms. Marvel gegen das Böse und liefert so die erste weibliche Hauptrolle im Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Handlung von Captain Marvel
Carol Danvers war einst lediglich ein Mensch, wenngleich Sicherheitschefin auf einer abgeschotteten Militärbasis. Doch die unvorhergesehene Konfrontation mit einer Explosion verschmilzt ihre DNS mit der der Kree, einer kriegerischen, hochgerüsteten Alienrasse, zu deren Vertretern u.a. Ronan the Accuser (in Guardians of the Galaxy von Lee Pace dargestellt) gehört. Fortan ist sie ein Hybridwesen, halb Mensch, halb Kree. Mit übermenschlichen Superkräften ausgestattet und unter dem Namen Captain Marvel verschreibt sie sich dem Dienst und Schutz der Menschen.

Hintergrund & Infos zu Captain Marvel
Wer in den kosmischen Comic-Welten nicht so bewandert ist, wird bei der Nennung des Charakters Captain Marvel schnell den Überblick verlieren:
Nicht nur gibt es sowohl im Marvel Universum einen Captain Marvel, sondern auch bei DC. Ursprünglich bei Fawcett Publications beheimatet und erstmalig 1940 in Whiz Comics #2 erschienen, erfreute sich Captain Marvel großer Popularität im Golden Age und erfuhr in der Marvel Family sogar den Ausbau zum Franchise. Erst 1967 kreierte dann Stan Lee seinen Captain Marvel, auch bekannt als Mar-Vell, für Marvel, welcher in Marvel Super-Heroes #12 seinen ersten Auftritt hat. Dabei profitierte Marvel von einem Gerichtsprozess, den DC mit Fawcett Publications gut 15 Jahre zuvor geführt hatte und in dessen Verlauf der ursprüngliche Captain Marvel an Popularität einbüßte. Auch wenn der nun DC-zugehörige Charakter weiterhin existierte, hatte Captain Marvel auf Seiten Marvels eine größere Fan-Gemeinde. Um weitere Missverständnisse zu vermeiden, wurde DCs Captain Marvel 2012 schließlich in Shazam! umgetauft. Unter diesem Namen soll auch der geplante Film 2019 in die Kinos kommen.

Um die Verwirrung komplett zu machen, existiert Captain Marvel in (ursprünglich) männlicher wie auch weiblicher Form. Letztere Inkarnation nannte sich zuvor Ms. Marvel. (EM)

Brie Larson is done filming ‘Captain Marvel’

Carol Danvers is the hero Marvel fans have been waiting for.

DC may have beaten Marvel out of the gate with its first female-led superhero flick Wonder Woman , but Marvel plans to role out its own female title character… eventually.

The Captain Marvel movie has been a long time coming for Marvel fans, who still have awhile to wait for the heroine. Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe started with Iron Man back in 2008, female superheroes have been seriously underrepresented. Many fans lobbied Marvel for a Black Widow movie, but nothing has come of those ovations. Instead, Marvel is looking toward its next wave of heroes, which includes Captain Marvel.

Star Brie Larson confirmed on Twitter that Captain Marvel wrapped principal photography on July 6.

Here’s everything we know so far about the Captain Marvel movie, Marvel’s first solo female superhero film.

Captain Marvel cast

Larson was the first announced cast member of Captain Marvel, putting her in the occasionally awkward position of being attached to the project years before anyone else. She’s regularly asked about a film that doesn’t actually exist yet.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly in October 2017, she compared the experience to her breakout role as a kidnap survivor in Room. “I can’t help but trip out about how similar my life is to Room,” she said. “It’s me wanting to stay in my own little bubble and remain anonymous and invisible and at the same time needing to step up to this hand that I’ve been given.”

Larson spent months mulling the decision to become Marvel’s first female headliner, but decided to accept the role because “it was a chance to tell a story on the largest scale possible.”

Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One, Ready Player One) is in talks to play the main villain of Captain Marvel, Variety reported on Oct. 24. Although the role he would take up has yet to be revealed, it’s likely that he’ll be portraying the Skrull leader.

Variety reported on Nov. 22 that Jude Law, who will also appear in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald next year, is in talks to play the male lead in Captain Marvel. The character he’ll be playing is Dr. Walter Lawson—who’s also known as the Kree alien Mar-Vell and is the original Captain Marvel in the comics—and will serve as a mentor to Larson’s Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson has also been confirmed to play Nick Fury.

Gemma Chan (Humans) has been cast as Minn-Erva (also known as Doctor Minerva), a Kree geneticist with the ability to lift 10 tons on Earth, fly (with the manipulation of gravitons), and traveling up to subsonic speed. In the comics, Minn-Erva is linked to Captain Mar-Vell and at one point attempted to get him to procreate with her.

DeWanda Wise was cast in a central role rumored to be Monica Rambeau—a superhero who was originally named Captain Marvel (prior to Carol Danvers) and has also gone by the names Photon, Pulsar, and Spectrum. But she left the film in March, citing scheduling conflicts with her Netflix original series, She’s Gotta Have It. Since Captain Marvel is already in production, this is a pretty last-minute exit.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, English actress Lashana Lynch, who starred in the ABC show Still Star-Crossed, is in final negotiations to take over DeWise’s role.

Clark Gregg will be back in the role of Agent Phil Coulson, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The film is set in the 1990s, before more current MCU events. Keep an eye out for Guardians of the Galaxy cast members Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) as well.

Annette Bening also joined the cast of Captain Marvel. Although her role in the movie has yet to be revealed, her character is said to be a type of scientist, per the Hollywood Reporter.

Captain Marvel plot

It’s still too early to know what kind of story Captain Marvel will tackle. In the comics, Captain Marvel is Carol Danvers, a top-tier Air Force pilot who develops superpowers. (Fans will remember that Danvers originally appeared in comics as Ms. Marvel before the ever-popular Kamala Khan took over the role.)


While some Marvel heroes spend most of their time on Earth, Captain Marvel’s adventures have taken her to far-off worlds. She’s exceptionally powerful, with superhuman strength, flying capabilities (including in space), and deadly combat skills. She’s also a talented diplomat.

The movie will involve the Kree-Skrull war and take place in the 1990s. That raises some questions about where Captain Marvel was during the “later” Marvel movies—but producer Kevin Feige has already hinted at the answer.

“The key is… ‘out there,’” he told io9, indicating that Carol Danvers may be in space during the 2010s era of the Avengers. Does that mean she’ll be middle-aged by the time she meets the other Marvel characters for the first time? We’re guessing no. Expect some kind of timewarp shenanigans, explaining why Carol Danvers is still young from the 1990s to the present day.

Samuel L. Jackson has shared an intriguing detail about his role in Captain Marvel, tying into the film’s 1990s timeframe. In a recent interview, he mentioned that the character will have “another guy’s face.”

“We’re going back now, and I meet Captain Marvel in more of an origin story. You’ll see Nick Fury with another guy’s face, somebody that’s got two eyes, so that’s a whole big deal. You’ll see. It’s prior to the eye injury, no eye patch.”

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, longtime Marvel star Clark Gregg said that Captain Marvel will also be an origin story of sorts for Agent Coulson. “He’s a bit of a new guy in S.H.I.E.L.D. He’s a lot younger. It’s the earliest we will have seen him, so when he says, ‘Mr. Stark, this isn’t my first rodeo’ in Iron Man, this is maybe the rodeo he’s talking about.” He also hinted that the movie will feature a soundtrack to fit its 1990s timeframe, following in the footsteps of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Captain Marvel news

Carol Danvers gets her superpowers when a device created by the alien Kree malfunctions and explodes. You may remember the Kree from Guardians of the Galaxy. As a result of the accident, Danvers’ human genes become fused with Kree biology, and as a consequence, she gains superpowers. It’s likely the film version of origin story will maintain the Guardians connection given the popularity of the first two movies. It also helps that the Captain Marvel movie is being co-written by Guardians scribe Nicole Perlman (who’s penning the script with Meg LeFauve of Pixar’s Inside Out).

Danvers is a unique superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because similar to Tony Stark, she starts off as a relatively normal person before being imbued with superpowers. The biggest difference between Danvers and Stark is that Danvers gains powers, while Stark uses the Iron Man suit for his abilities.

It’s perhaps premature to speculate what kind of role Danvers will have in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beyond the surface-level connection to Guardians of the Galaxy. Larson has been chatting with Marvel quite a bit , saying, “[Marvel’s] been very open to hearing my thoughts and my take on it, which has been great. I think that’s why they cast me: I have a lot of similarities to this character… and they want me to bring that into the movie.”


At 27, Larson is already an Academy Award winner for Best Actress for her role in the 2015 drama Room.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, known for directing Ryan Gosling to stardom on Half-Nelson , were announced as the directors for the film. They are known for making smaller movies with a more intimate, human touch. That coupled with Larson’s genuine, heartfelt sensibilities will likely bring a unique combination of raw, human intimacy to the Captain Marvel movie.

Captain Marvel announced a change of screenwriters on Aug. 15, reportedly because Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman are busy with other projects. Geneva Robertson-Dworet, who wrote the new Tomb Raider reboot, will take over as the film’s lead writer.

In preparation for the role, Brie Larson visited an Air Force base where she met up with some pilots. In late January she posted a photo of herself wearing a flight suit, captioned “Learning how to fly.”

Captain Marvel music

Captain Marvel’s music will be scored by composer Pinar Toprak, who revealed the news on her Instagram. “It’s an incredible honor to be a part of the Marvel Universe,” Toprak wrote. “So many thoughts racing through my head. And the main one is gratitude.”

This is another step forward in the film’s drive for gender representation because composing is one of the most male-dominated professions in Hollywood. Between 2014 and 2016, just 1-2% of composers working on the top 250 movies were female. If you’re not a voracious cinema-goer, there’s a decent chance you’ve never heard an original score written by a woman.

For a sample of Pinar Toprak’s work, we recommend checking out her 2017 piece “Echoes of Battle,” which is exactly the kind of heart-pumping music you’d hope to hear in the background of a superhero action scene.

Captain Marvel movie trailer

No trailer has been released so far, but with San Diego Comic-Con coming this summer, it’s possible we could get some early test photos.


Captain Marvel movie release date

Captain Marvel was originally slated for July 6, 2018, until it was pushed back to March 8, 2019. It marks the first time Marvel has released a superhero movie in March, fitting for Marvel’s “ biggest female hero.”
