In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite — not only to save Jean’s soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Captain Marvel Official First Looks

Entertainment Weekly has released exclusive first looks at Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson. Captain Marvel will be release on March 8, 2019 which will coincide with International Women’s Day.

The movie will begin differently than previous MCU origin movies with the Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) already has her powers and left her home on Earth to join Star Force, an elite Kree military team. Carol will face the shape-shifting Skrulls.

Larson described her character as aggressive, temperamental, confrontational, and impulsive, and her impulsive-ness in battle is a character flaw.

She can’t help but be herself. She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.

Director Anna Boden, who is also the first female director in the MCU, explained how special is Captain Marvel.

This is not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection. But what makes her special is just how human she is. She’s funny, but doesn’t always tell good jokes. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn’t always make the perfect decisions for herself. But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity — and all of its messiness.

Directed by Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel cast Jude Law as the commander of an elite Kree military team called Starforce and Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, the leader of the Skrulls. Samuel L. Jackson will return as a fresh-faced Nick Fury.

Captain Marvel made her debut in the comics in 1968 as a part-Kree and part-human pilot.
