'Captain Marvel' Filming Begins; Clark Gregg and Lee Pace Join Cast

Coulson lives! Yes, yes, we know he was revived for TV's Agents Of SHIELD, but Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson coming back to the big screen thanks to the production (and '90s story setting) of Captain Marvel.

And because the film is set in the "90s, many familiar faces from films" past are set to appear.

Marvel announced the cast of Captain Marvel on Monday, including Oscar victor Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Jude Law as Walter Lawson (the guise used by Mar-Vell), Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury (his first MCU appearance since Avengers: Age of Ultron), and Ben Mendelsohn as the yet-unknown villain (but probably Kree military officer Yon-Rogg).

Comic book fans probably aren't all that surprised by those additions since the origin story of Captain Marvel is deeply rooted in the cosmic side of the Marvel Universe. For Phase One Coulson was the glue that held the MCU together, so to see him returning is a joy. Oh, and don't forget that Jude Law will also be participating as Kree warrior Mar-Vell - and that the always great Ben Mendelsohn is likewise involved, albeit in a still-unspecified role. Lee Pace played Ronan the Accuser, and Djimon Hounsou played Korath the Pursuer. That press release also includes the full cast for the film starring Brie Larson as the new cosmic superhero of the title, and it includes a couple characters from Guardians of the Galaxy and a beloved character we haven't seen since he was killed off in The Avengers in 2012. It's due to hit United States cinemas on 8 Mat 2019.

Other filming locations for "Captain Marvel" include Fresno, Calif., and Louisiana, while Los Angeles will serve as its primary production base.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, "Captain Marvel" marks the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, following the yet-to-be-released "Avengers: Infinity War" and "Ant-Man and the Wasp". Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Djimon had a role in Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy making Captain Marvel being his second appearance with the team. Lashana Lynch has an unnamed supporting role, but we suspect she might be Monica Rambeau, another character who has taken the name of Captain Marvel.
