It grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide thanks to the chemistry between the cast and impressive action sequences. It is the ninth highest-grossing Marvel Studios movie so far.

Due to it’s glorified success at the box-office, a second Captain Marvel is expected to have a potential release this year.

New Captain Marvel

It is said that the new film by Marvel Studios will move the setting from the 1990s of the original movie to the present day. Marvel has kept the details of the new film quiet.

What could be expected is the return of the Oscar-winning actress and star of the movie Brie Larson who plays Carol Danvers. She plays a human Air Force pilot turned intergalactic Kree hero. 

The story follows Carol 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. 

There’s a very high chance that Larson will be joined by an entirely new cast of characters.

In the first film, she acts alongside; Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos Keller, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch as Maria, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, and Jude Law as Yon Rogg.

“We didn’t even mention that we’re making Black Panther 2 and we didn’t mention that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is coming. We didn’t even have time to talk about Captain Marvel 2, by the way.

I didn’t even have time to talk about The Fantastic Four. And there’s no time left to talk about mutants,” said Disney division’s head Kevin Feige.

X-Men VS. Captain Marvel

Mikey Sutton from Superhero Buzz is circulating the rumor that Marvel president Kevin Feige is lining up an X-Men character to be the villain in Captain Marvel 2

This character will specifically be Rogue, who was played by Anna Paquin in four X-Men films from 2000 to 2014. Since Disney’s acquisition of Fox, Rogue would be the first X-Men character officially introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

It’s claimed Rogue will first appear as an antagonist, and may first appear as a member of the Brotherhood or Marauders.

It’s said that while no script has been written as of yet, this is just brainstorming and that Rogue in Captain Marvel 2 is being discussed, but it’s not certain.

No Original Writers And Directors?

There have been reports that the original’s co-writers and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will not return for the writing of Captain Marvel 2.

It was reported by Hollywood Reporter that the sequel will have ‘WandaVision’ writer Megan McDonnell to pen the follow-up script. Negotiations to sell her deal are on the way.

According to them, Marvel is hoping to find a female filmmaker for Captain Marvel 2. Captain Marvel’s superpowers include flight, super-enhanced strength, and speed.

Carol Danvers is also capable of energy projection and absorption.

Captain Marvel And Avengers

Captain Marvel also appeared on Avengers. Explaining her costume change, one of the leads said it was due to the time-jump.

The way it worked was I designed her look first for the [directors Joe and Anthony Russo] for Endgame, because she initially filmed her Endgame appearances before her solo film.

It was a very odd situation I haven’t had in all my years that I’ve been here, to design a character for one director knowing right away she’s going to have her own solo film with a different director.

So she acted in Endgame with her solo-film costume, and then it was decided later that they wanted a new costume for Endgame, because why would she wear this exact same costume decades later? That’s when they approached me about exploring new looks.

They ranged from weathering her current look as if she’s gone through many years of adventures, but she kept the same costume — maybe with little additions like [Carol Danvers’ Ms. Marvel] sash — and then I started doing the range of pushing that design further, breaking up the colors, changing the colors a little bit, introducing a little bit bluer,” Andy Park, Marvel’s director of visual development said.
