Principal photography has wrapped on Marvel’s first female-led blockbuster Captain Marvel, according to a new tweet from star Brie Larson.
Larson shared a picture of a clapperboard with her 755,000 followers, along with a calendar that showed July 6 marked as the “last day” of filming.
As well as being the first Marvel Cinematic Universe movie to focus solely on a female hero, after Evangeline Lilly shared top billing with Paul Rudd for Ant-Man and the Wasp, the film will also be helmed by Marvel’s first female director in Anna Boden, who is reteaming with Mississipi Grind co-director Ryan Fleck.
The plot of Captain Marvel is currently under wraps, but it has already been revealed that the story will take place in the early 1990s, featuring de-aged versions of Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) and Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg).
Kevin Feige has said that there is still a while to wait before any marketing for Captain Marvel will arrive, even though there’s only eight months to go before the movie’s March 8th, 2019 release date.
