" I think there is a structure to origin films that audiences sometimes get ahead of very quickly".
While Moore didn't divulge much information about how Captain Marvel will change things up, he did tease that they've come up with a new way to structure the origin story. The film is now shooting, so it shouldn't be long before we figure out the major roles in the anticipated film.
Cinema Blend recently caught up with Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore to talk about the upcoming solo Captain Marvel movie. While speaking to Cinema Blend, Moore acknowledged that numerous MCU films have followed the same formulaic origin stories so many times that even casual fans can predict what's going to happen next.
"That's a lot of times what a typical origin movie is structured like, but as we introduce new characters moving forward, we want to find ways to subvert that structure, so at least the experience of the film feels new to audiences", he said.
There's precedent for her wielding the super-weapon, too, as the God-like Vision managed to lift Mjolnir without so much as breaking a sweat in Age of Ultron - to his credit, Captain America also moved the enchanted hammer ever so slightly - and the fact that Kevin Feige has since described Captain Marvel as the MCU's most powerful character, well, ever, confirms that SR's theory isn't exactly outside the realm of possibility. Still balanced enough that they can enjoy the film, but even just making it a period film is sort of interesting in that it's not just a function of the world as we know it in the MCU today.
We got a glimpse at the end of Avengers: Infinity War of what the all female Avengers could be like and with Carol joining the team, maybe we will have a little bit of a moment of it during Avengers 4.
With Avengers: Infinity War now safely in the wild, audiences are slowly starting to turn their attention to what comes next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and this includes the 2019's Captain Marvel. We don't see the heroine at that moment, but it should help to lay the groundwork for her eventual arrival. The film is set to release in theatres on March 8, 2019.
To be fair, it would be hard to accuse Black Panther of rigidly following this formula, so perhaps this is the end of the classic origin story for Marvel?
