Samuel L. Jackson will also return as Nick Fury for the film — this time without the eyepatch because the film will be set in the 1990s (presumably before he lost use of his left eye).

Today at the Comic-Con panel for DC, Warner Bros. revealed that their The Flash movie would be based on the 2011 comic book series Flashpoint. For those unfamiliar with the comics, which were written by Geoff Johns (who now oversees the Dceu), Flashpoint is essentially a big reset button. Barry Allen (Ezra Miller) runs so fast that he travels back in time and prevents his mother from being killed. However, thanks to The Butterfly Effect, this has major repercussions across the DC universe. The Season 3 premiere of The Flash TV series also attempted their own version of Flashpoint … »

‘Captain Marvel’ Will Be Set in the ’90s With Skrulls as Villains

That means everything will unfold before Tony Stark dons Iron Man’s suit, Captain America comes out of deep freeze, Thor crashes to Earth, and before the Avengers ever think of assembling.
“Captain Marvel” is highly anticipated because it’s the first Marvel movie to be set around a female lead. Oscar-winner Brie Larson plays the title character. In an interview with Variety last year, Feige »
