Marvel Confirms That Captain Marvel Will Be An Origin Story
Speaking with a reporter for Cinemablend after a screening of Doctor Strange, the Marvel Studios chief explained what the company’s plans for its flagship film franchise are. For a while, it was assumed by many that Doctor Strange was the only origin story they could expect to see in the next wave of Marvel films. As Feige made clear, however, its not the only one viewers should look forward to:
[Black] Panther is not really an origin story, since we saw him already in Civil War. But his standalone certainly introduces you to 99% of his world that you never saw. And Captain Marvel is certainly an origin. It’s an origin story from the start.
In the comics, Carol Danvers becomes Captain Marvel when she is exposed to an explosive alien device. The result of this incident is that her core DNA is altered, giving her not just incredible strength and speed, but also the ability to fly. This was the character’s origin when she was first introduced back in the late 1970s — then known as Ms. Marvel — but like just about every other comic book character that hits the silver screen, there is every chance that its casually changed to better fit the medium.
