Kevin Feige promises more female-led MCU movies

The comic book and movie powerhouse has released 10 pictures to EW in the United States, which includes glimpses of Larson as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's strongest superhero, Jude Law as her mentor Mar-Vell, Ben Mendelsohn as the villainous Talos and a two-eyed, de-aged Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Marvel fans have been waiting for this moment for some time now!

"With [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and now with Captain Marvel and many movies to be announced in the near future, I'm anxious for the time where it's not a novelty that there is a female-led superhero movie, but it is a norm", said Feige.

Back in June, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige said it would not be long before the MCU released more movies led by women.

However, a couple of those EW exclusive promo images do suggest that her pre-powered life will be documented in some form, most likely via flashback.

The focus is understandably on its titular character, with a number of shots of Brie Larson's Carol Danvers in and out of the classic costume, as well as Jude Law's mentor, Ben Mendelsohn's villain, Lashana Lynch's Maria Rambeau, and Nicky Fury sans iconic eyepatch. She's also quick to jump to things, which makes her incredible in battle because she's the first one out there and doesn't always wait for orders.

How exactly the movie handles the Carol Danvers origin story remains to be seen as it ties into Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel in the comics. "But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw". He went on to say that her humanity is "also the thing that makes her great". In the after-credits scene of "Avengers: Infinity War", Fury sends an alert to Captain Marvel before disappearing from the Thanos snap.

Marvel will dole them out slowly, of course, but especially because the third "Avengers" film ended on such a cliffhanger this summer, the geek Internet is hungry to know what "Captain Marvel" holds when it comes out in March, before we finally get the fourth "Avengers".
