‘ Captain Marvel’ Practically Debuted In ‘Age Of Ultron,’ States Kevin Feige
Captain Marvel will skyrocket into theaters in less than a week. She’s doing so as the MCU’s Stage 3 prepares to involve April with Avengers: Endgame, so her arrival might be thought about well past due. Approved, Carol Danvers has actually probably inhabited herself ( for years) with battling in the Kree-Skrull War, and she’s just emerging now due to the distress signal sent out by Nick Fury in an Infinity War post-credits scene. Nevertheless, we would have fulfilled her in 2015 if Avengers: Age Of Ultron director Joss Whedon had actually gotten his method.
Why didn’t this take place? In a 2015 interview with Birth. Films. Death. that’s freshly resurfaced and making the rounds, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige described that a scene with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch was initially suggested for Brie Larson’s superhero in an early Age Of Ultron draft:
” The method we expose Scarlet Witch [in costume] at the end of the film? Those were Captain Marvel plate shots. Joss stated, ‘We’ll cast her later!’ And I stated, ‘Yeah Joss, we’ll cast her later.’ [Whispers to an invisible associate who isn’t Joss] ‘We’re not putting her in there!'”
Feige described that he felt that Captain Marvel deserved her own back story like the other title characters of the MCU. He even points towards “Black Widow” as an example of this (although she hasn’t gotten her own movie yet), considered that Natasha Romanoff progressed in Iron Guy 2 prior to using her outfit onscreen. Feige felt that Danvers needs to be no exception:
“[Captain Marvel] remained in a draft. However to me, it would have done that character an injustice, to fulfill her totally formed, in an outfit and part of the Avengers currently when 99% of the audience would go, ‘Who is that?’ It’s simply not the method we have actually done it previously.”
Not just that, however Age Of Ultron was currently a sensory-overload film that was packed loaded with characters and would have been a bad lorry to briefly present the most effective superhero ever seen in the MCU. Danvers will lastly get her due in Marvel’s very first female-fronted superhero film this weekend, right on time to (ideally) beat Thanos.
Captain Marvel strikes theaters on March 8.
