Following reports that Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel would not appear in the upcoming Infinity War, questions naturally arose of why exactly not, and what excuse would the people over at the MCU give for her abscene during such a trying time for the universe. This question is particularly important given the somewhat central and powerful role that Carol Danvers‘ heroine plays in the broader MCU.

Now, the folks at MCU Exchange have more preliminary answers (remember that this project is still in its infancy, with shooting not scheduled until th winter of 2018).

There are three key pieces of information to report. First, the film will include the Kree hero Mar-Vell, which makes sense given that we already knew that the Skrulls would also pay a key figure. Thus, it seems as if a Kree/Skrull war will be a central part of the film. The additional speculation here is that re Kree have been observing humans for a long time.

Second, there will apparently be a depiction of the famous comic scene showing a Pysche-Magnitron accident, which will be the cause of her powers and also cause alterations in her DNA. Moreover, her half-Kree nature will explain why she doesn’t age, which means that even if the first Captain Marvel movie is a 1990s period piece as we’ve discussed, Brie Larson will not age when/if she appears in Avengers 4.

Third, MCE Exchange reports that early versions of the script have her as Ms. Marvel, including that costume.

Much more will continue to develop as this project moves into the production stage so stay tuned for updates as we learn of them.
