Captain Marvel will see the return of Ronan, a former Marvel Cinematic Universe villain, and Lee Pace is excited about playing the character once more.
One of the most significant gripes people have with the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the seeming plethora of unmemorable villains. Marvel please their legions of fans film after film but just can’t seem to nail down enough memorable antagonists. Disney will be hoping this changes with Infinity War’s Thanos of course.
Ronan, the villain of the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, has apparently made enough of an impression on the decision makers at Marvel, however, as they have decided to bring the character back for Captain Marvel.
With the film set in the 90s, this gives Ronan a chance to impress second time around, and Lee Pace, the actor behind the role, is looking forward to getting started. Speaking at New York Live, the actor said:
“I know nothing. I don’t know anything. I wish I could tell you all the secrets, but I don’t know any secrets! I’m excited to be back.”
Are you looking forward to seeing more of Ronan? What can the character do to win you over if he failed to do so upon his first appearance?
The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Marvel is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) and sees Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island) leading the cast as Carol Danvers alongside Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lashana Lynch (Fast Girls), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Algenis Perez Soto (Sambá), Rune Temte (Eddie The Eagle), McKenna Grace (I, Tonya), with Clark Gregg (The Avengers), and Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald).
