After being omitted from several films in the MCU after Avengers: Age of Ultron, Nick Fury is set to return again for Captain Marvel. It has been reported that Samuel L. Jackson has signed on to appear in the standalone Marvel adventure, which will be the studio’s first female superhero movie.
Brie Larson is starring as the eponymous superheroine, which will be directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. No further casting announcements have been made and no synopsis has been given as yet. That may change soon enough with the Nick Fury announcement and the fact that production on the film is scheduled to begin in February 2018.
Captain Marvel is set to soar into cinemas in March 2019.
