Captain Marvel Is Heading To California
Captain Marvel is going to be quite a departure for Marvel Studios, both on and off the screen.
Many of Marvel's recent films have shot in Atlanta, Georgia. Films like Captain America: The Winter Solider, Captain America: Civil War, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and more have filmed in Atlanta, but Captain Marvel will fly solo and film in California thanks to some worthwhile tax benefits (via Bizjournals).
Those incentives add up to about $20.8 million that Marvel will be receiving in tax credits. California chose eight features to receive those credits, which all in all come out to $68 million. That doesn't mean Marvel has left Georgia entirely though, as Ant-Man and the Wasp is currently in production there and Avengers: Infinity War also called Georgia home throughout filming.
While the location will be different, the character of Captain Marvel isn't going to change, as actor Brie Larson already seems to have a good handle on the fan favorite.
"It's always for me about the complexity. The thing that I love about her is that there are these actually two sides to her – these two things that are at war with each other. I feel like that's what I love about being a person is that we're constantly trying to balance between these two sides of ourselves or many sides of ourselves. It's such an amazing opportunity to be able to put that metaphor on the outside and make that part of what her conflict is."
Marvel brought on directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, responsible for Half Nelson and Mississippi Grind. Now that directors are in place and the lead star is already hitting the ground running, more casting news should soon follow.
Captain Marvel currently has a 3.70 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Spider-Man: Homecoming are both in theaters now, and will be 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 is slated for July 6, 2018, followed by Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019.
