Earlier in the week Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige confirmed that the upcoming Captain Marvel movie will “certainly” be an origin story, and now in an interview with IGN, the producer has discussed the search for a director on the project, as well as stating that Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers is “”by far the most powerful character we’ve ever introduced.”
“I do think it will be not a requirement to make a great version of Captain Marvel, but it’s something we think is important,” said Feige. “With all of our movies, we want them to be different, we want them to find the new voices. I think the fun thing is we’re meeting so many great directors that we’ll bring one of them onto Captain Marvel, but we have future things to come [for the others]. We’re trying to get a little more of the story set before we bring a filmmaker on so we can talk about the story with the filmmaker before we bring them on.”
“What is one of the coolest things about it is she will be by far the most powerful character we’ve ever introduced in the movie,” he continued. “‘How do you find those limitations? How do you find those vulnerabilities?’ is something that is sort of at the crux of the story that we’re putting together. She has — as you know from the comics — an interesting story, and I think we have a very cool and unique way of telling that story. I don’t think it’s leaked yet exactly what we’re doing with her movie or how we’re doing it, but it will be cool. She will prove to be a very important character in our universe for all the movies.”
Captain Marvel is expected to make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Avengers: Infinity War, ahead of her solo movie in 2018.
