The rumors are true, Samuel L. Jackson is all set to reprise his role as Nick Fury in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. Nick Fury helped form the original Avengers team and he has made numerous appearances in the McU since his first sighting in 2008's Iron Man. Jackson will also participate in Avengers: Infinity War and the untitled sequel in addition to popping up in Captain Marvel, which is set to open in 2019. The last time we saw Nick Fury on screen was for Avengers: Age of Ultron and before that we saw him get shot and hospitalized in Captain America: Winter Soldier.
Rumors sprung up over the past week that Samuel L. Jackson will be returning as Nick Fury for Captain Marvel and now Deadline is reporting that it is indeed official. But that's about as far as the news goes regarding Nick Fury's involvement in the upcoming movie, »
Captain Marvel, the upcoming Marvel movie starring Brie Larson, is about to get a tie into Marvel's Ant-Man. It has been relatively quiet on the Captain Marvel news front lately. We are not sure what the major plot points are going to be and we definitively don't know how Carol Danvers will obtain her superpowers in the movie, which is understandable because the movie is still a year half from being officially released. But we do know that production is expected to start sometime in February of 2018 and that it will be an origin story that differs from the original comics. We now also know that Captain Marvel will be linked to Ant-Man through the Quantum Realm.
Dr. Spiros Michalakis is a quantum physicist at the California Institute of Technology and he recently sat down for an interview with Inverse to discuss his role in working with Marvel Comics as a consult on Ant-Man. »
During last year's San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel announced that Academy Award winning actress Brie Larson would be starring as Captain Marvel, which many had suspected for months. It was just recently announced that Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck will officially direct the new McU film. Captain Marvel will be McU's first female lead superhero movie and that comes with a lot of pressure for all involved.
The pressure of taking that leading role was not lost on Brie Larson. This is a big jump for anybody's career with a multi-film deal that will have the actress playing Captain Marvel across McU films for the foreseeable future. Vanity Fair recently sat down to talk with Larson about her decision to join the Marvel Universe. And she wasn't so sure at first that this was the right fit.

While I remain skeptical about Marvel Studios commitment to their female heroes, they took a small step forward in making Captain Marvel a reality by signing directors to the project. That's right, directors, as in plural. The writer/director duo of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck won the gig. They're not doing the screenplay this time (which is new for them) but still co-directing. They debuted with the searing Half Nelson for which Ryan Gosling earned a well deserved Best Actor nomination. Their subsequent films (Sugar, It's Kind of a Funny Story, and Mississippi Grind) weren't quite as acclaimed but were respectable outings. They've recently been directing performance-centric shows like Looking, Billions and The Affair.
What does this mean for the film? Well it bodes well for the acting (not that Brie Larson needs a lot of help there) since they always do right by the talent but we hope »

After months of speculation, Marvel has finally chosen its directors for Captain Marvel, bringing in a pair of indie filmmakers who weren't mentioned as front runners in the past. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who most recently directed the A24 dramatic comedy Mississippi Grind starring Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn, have signed on to take the helm of this superhero adventure, which has Brie Larson set to star as the title character. While this news has yet to be confirmed by Marvel Studios itself, the studio reportedly took its time in finding the right director, while also making sure that the script was in great shape.
Variety reports that Marvel met with multiple contenders for the job before selecting Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. The studio met with the directing pair multiple times and were thoroughly impressed with their approach to the title character, a.k.a. Carol Danvers. Nicole Perlman »
