Brie Larson took to Twitter to commemorate the end of filming for Captain Marvel. Production on the Marvel Studios film wrapped the day Ant-Man and the Wasp officially hit theaters. Now, the film will go into the post-production phase until its 2019 release.
Production on Captain Marvel officially began this past March. Along with Larson, the film also stars Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn. Lee Pace will also appear in the film as Guardians of the Galaxy villain Ronan the Accuser. The official synopsis details what fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be treated to with the MCU's 21st effort, as the film takes audiences back in time. The story is set back in the 1990s, with Carol Danvers becoming one of the most powerful beings in the universe, as earth finds itself in the middle of a battle between two alien races. The film will be a brand new adventure, bringing a different feel to what fans have come to know from the MCU.
In her Twitter post, Larson shared a picture of the clapboard used on set, with the names of directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and cinematographer Ben Davis shown prominently. Adorning the clapboard are signatures, presumably from members of the cast and crew. Larson's personal calendar is visible behind the clapboard, with July 7 given the note "Home."
Most details about Captain Marvel have been kept strictly under wraps so far, with fans speculating on everything from casting decisions, villains, and tie-ins to other Marvel films. There has been speculation that Captain Marvel may have a direct link to Iron Man 2 and The Avengers. Fans have also taken note that the recent MCU addition, Ant-Man and the Wasp, may have hidden a Captain Marvel connection as well. Moving forward, Kevin Feige recently revealed that the wait for the Captain Marvel trailer will be another few months. To tide fans over until that time, it was subsequently revealed that special affects would be used to de-age Nick Fury actor Samuel L. Jackson for the entirety of the film.
The official end of production for Captain Marvel now brings on a waiting period between films that will be the longest the MCU has seen since the gap between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War. Of course, fans can anticipate that news will be shared here and there, along with official posters and, in a few months time, the trailer for the film. Promotional photos may also find there way to fans prior to the trailer and posters. Ultimately, the eyes of MCU devotees now look toward Captain Marvel's official release in March of 2019.
