Last week at the San Diego Comic-Con, the first details on the Captain Marvel movie were revealed by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and among them was confirmation that the infamous Skrulls would be the film’s villains. Concept artist Jerad S.Marantz has taken to Instagram to show off the art he produced for the film and for its villains. Check out the Skrull concept art below!
It’s worth noting that Marantz specifically mentions the Super-Skrull in his post, a character that is noted for having the combined powers of the Fantastic Four, but since Marvel Studios doesn’t own the rights to those characters, it remains to be seen what abilities that character will have should they appear in the film.
Additional story details for the Captain Marvel include that Samuel L. Jackson will appear in the film as Nick Fury, but he will instead have both of his eyes this time because the film will be set in the early ’90s! Captain Marvel will begin production next year in Los Angeles, California.

The directing pair of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) have signed on to direct the film, starring Brie Larson in the title role. Kevin Feige will produce the film, written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman. Marvel Studios’ Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, and Jonathan Schwartz serve as Executive Producers alongside Stan Lee.
In the regular Marvel Comics continuity, Carol Danvers made her first appearance in 1968’s Marvel Super-Heroes #13. A Security Chief in the US air force, Danvers would later be transformed into the superhero Ms. Marvel following an explosion involving Kree technology. More recently, Danvers took on the identity of Captain Marvel after being “promoted” to the moniker of the former Kree superhero.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
