Now that the long-awaited Captain Marvel film has itself a shining star, and two talented directors, it's finally time to get the ball rolling. This week, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige finally revealed when filming will actually begin for the heroine's solo adventure.
While doing the press event for Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2, Feige was asked about the current state of the Captain Marvel production. It was announced earlier this week that the studio had hired the directorial team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck to helm the film, so it was safe to assume production was about to begin.
Feige confirmed that very notion, when he revealed they were expecting to start rolling cameras in just nine months.
“Assuming everything stays on schedule, we start filming … Captain Marvel in February.”
With this timeline in mind, Marvel will have just over one year to complete the film, as it's currently scheduled to release on March 9, 2019. This seems to be on par with some of Marvel's other ventures, as Black Panther was given roughly the same amount of time.
Brie Larson is set to star as Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel, but the movie will not be her first appearance. The character is set to debut in Avengers: Infinity War, which is currently in production.
Next up for Marvel is Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 on May 5, 2017. Spider-Man: Homecoming lands on July 7, 2017, followed by Thor: Ragnarok on November 3, 2017. After that Black Panther debuts on February 16, 2018, while Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters on May 4, 2018. Ant-Man and the Wasp
