Principal photography is now underway.
Filming for Captain Marvel has officially begun, and Marvel Studios has confirmed both Clark Gregg’s Phil Coulson and Lee Pace’s Ronan the Accuser will appear in the film.
We know Captain Marvel is set in the 1990s, at a time when Coulson is alive and well as an agent of SHIELD. The film will also feature the Kree/Skrull war, so Ronan will presumably be a part of the fight. Djimon Hounsou will also appear in Captain Marvel, reprising his role as Korath from Guardians of the Galaxy.
The film stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, with Captain Marvel serving as the first superhero Nick Fury meets in the MCU. The cast also includes Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, and Jude Law.
Principal photography is now underway in Los Angeles, California. Filming will also take place is Fresno, California, as well as Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana.
Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and will open in theaters on March 8, 2019. For more on the film, which according to screenwriter Geneva Robertson-Dworet is “more of an action-comedy,” check out this early glimpse at Larson in costume.
