Here's hoping Peggy returns to the MCU in Captain Marvel (and that they #RenewAgentCarter already)! Aside from the potential of creating a separate and massive fandom for Captain Marvel, setting it in the aforementioned time period gives Marvel a chance to play with a lot of elements, including the soundtrack and the cinematography.
Coming off a San Diego Comic-Con weekend where Warner Bros and Disney/Marvel flexed serious franchise superhero muscle with presentations for the upcoming Justice League, Ready Player One, the latest Thor and Avengers pics and Black Panther, Monday's disclosure by the state agency on behalf of the annual $330 million program saw $68 million available for this round. However, these days Skrulls are better known for a 2008 storyline called "Secret Invasion", in which they used their shapeshifting powers in an attempt to replace Earth's leaders with their own agents (and superheroes!) and take over the planet. If you don't already know, the Skrulls are reoccurring villains that aim to do the usual, invade Earth and take over.
Donald Trump, in tweet, calls Jeff Sessions 'beleaguered'
The public disclosures helped lead to a special prosecutor, Robert Mueller , taking over the investigation. Trump is scheduled to participate Saturday in a commissioning ceremony for the USS Gerald Ford in Norfolk.
This also adds another layer of lineage to the MCU by continuing to establish Tony Stark having "become part of a bigger universe" after revealing himself as Iron Man. Captain America fighting through World War II and Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne having adventures from the 1960s to the 1980s are prime examples of this. I'm guessing that she won't have a big role in that team-up movie, but that Marvel will instead actually be taking a page out of DC Comics' book.
Dear Marvel: Peggy Carter meeting Captain Marvel is literally the only thing I want from you. Is Captain Marvel that next big inciting event, eventually maybe leading us to a big hero vs Skrull-ified hero showdown in the future?
Captain Marvel soars into theaters on International Women's Day on March 8, 2019. The untitled Avengers 4, marking the end of Phase 3 in the MCU, is scheduled for May 3, 2019.
