The latest photos from the set of Captain Marvel show the construction of an aircraft crash site and promise more footage and images to come from the 2019 Marvel movie. Though Avengers: Infinity War didn't introduce Carol Danvers to the MCU as some speculated it would, the post-credits scene teased her arrival. With Ant-Man 2 and Captain Marvel set before Avengers 3, there's no telling how the next two Marvel Studios films will play into Avengers 4. But the cosmic scope of Captain Marvel and the Kree-Skrull War it will bring to life promise a lot of ramifications for Phase 4.
A new rumor suggests Captain Marvel will be a game-changer on an even larger scale than Avengers: Infinity War. While there's not much concrete to support this, it's also not hard to imagine. Between the introduction of one of Marvel's most powerful heroes, an exploration of the Quantum Realm from the Ant-Man franchise, and an intergalactic battle that's apparently been a secret since the early '90s, it's clear that things won't be quite the same when Danvers reveals herself to the Avengers. And with production for the film in full swing, we're finally getting a look at what Captain Marvel will entail.
Bass Lake Summer (via ComicBookMovie) captured two new videos from the set of Captain Marvel. Shot at Shaver Lake, the footage shows what looks to be a plane crash (something BLS also notes in the second video) along the shore. Though not many details can be discerned from the footage, there's a good chance this is tied to Danvers' work in the military. Of course, a big crash scene could also mean an encounter with one of the movie's extraterrestrial forces. Take a look at the videos below.

The construction in the videos also indicates more photos and videos should be arriving soon involving actual filming. Hopefully then, we'll get a better idea of what type of aircraft is involved. This isn't the first transportation-related action sequence we've seen a glimpse of either. A Captain Marvel set video from last week showed Brie Larson atop a train battling a foe. And considering Gemma Chan began filming the same day, it could be Captain Marvel was squaring off against Minn-Erva.
Along with the various images and videos from the set, we also recently learned Annette Bening has joined Captain Marvel. Though her official role hasn't been disclosed, one source claimed she'd be playing a scientist while another said she was cast as Carol's mother. Likely, both will prove to be true and the elder Danvers will be getting a rewrite from the comics and will be part of the film's scientific subplot (Minn-Erva's alter-ego is the Earth scientist Dr. Minerva).
The last minute casting of Bening may also mean more additions to the film have yet to be announced, so fingers crossed that Peggy Carter will be in Captain Marvel after all. With the returns of Fury, Coulson, Ronan, and Korath, it'd be a shame for Agent Carter to not show up in the film, so perhaps another big reveal is around the corner. Either way, the movie's fast-approaching release date means fans can expect more behind-the-scenes looks at Captain Marvel in the near future.
