Kevin Feige Explains The Significance Of Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige explained why Captain Marvel will be such an important entry in the Marvel film franchise.

Set for release in 2019, the movie will mark the first time that a woman has been the protagonist of a Marvel film. Although a final decision hasn’t been made as to who will direct it, reports indicate that a search is underway for a female to helm the project:

“Having a female director at the helm to tell the story of a woman who is also our most powerful hero by far is very important to us…If you had the collector cards of the Marvel characters and you could see the power levels, she would be off the charts compared to anyone that we’ve previously introduced in a film.”

Feige also spoke about casting Academy Award winner Brie Larson, which was announced at this summer’s San Diego Comic-Con.

“With Captain Marvel, who has powers that approach a level that we haven’t seen before in our films, you need to counter- balance that by finding somebody who is also very human and very relatable and can get into a groove with the audience, where they’re willing to see her fly through the sun and punch a moon away from a spacecraft. At the same time, we need her to land and have relatable flaws.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
