It's time to take things back to a different era... one that holds a particular place of fondness for me: the mid-1990s. For the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), we're spinning things back to move things forward. As teased at the end of Avengers: Infinity War, when Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) realizes that something is very much awry thanks to the impact of Thanos' snap, he pulls out a device to contact Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) aka Captain Marvel. Where she's been all these years is a mystery, but at some point in the 90s she found herself super-powered and in the midst of a war between two alien forces - the Skrulls and the Kree. Along for the ride, a pre-eye patch Nick Fury. It's been said that Danvers is in fact the most powerful hero in the MCU, and on March 8, 2019 we'll get the full story when Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel arrives in theaters, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Now, fresh from its debut on ABC's Good Morning America, here's your first-look at the first trailer!
As audiences eagerly await next year's release of Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel, she's coming to animated form in MARVEL RISING: Secret Warriors, which makes it's debut on Sunday, September 30th at 10PM ET/PT simultaneously on Disney Channel and Disney XD. She's a supporting player here, as Marvel Rising: Secret Warriors follows super-powered teens Ms. Marvel, Squirrel Girl, Quake, Patriot, America Chavez, and Inferno join forces as an unlikely, but formidable crew of aspiring heroes. When a threat no one could have expected bears down on the Marvel Universe, this ragtag, untrained band of teens have no choice but to rise together and prove to the world that sometimes the difference between a “hero” and “misfit” is just in the name. Today comes the full trailer, which made its debut on Marvel HQ and can be seen below!

The release of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War invoked a lot of reaction from fans and critics alike. While the film was met with near-universal acclaim and a box office take that would make Thanos smile (over $2B worldwide), the emotional response elicited by the events of the film's final act left many feeling... things. Anger, sadness - downright shock... the first ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe had all been leading to this, the uncertain fate of some of Earth's mightiest heroes. So how is that fan reaction taken in by those behind-the-scenes? In celebration of Avengers: Infinity War's in-home release, I had a chance to find out - catching up with Executive Producer Trinh Tran at the all-new Marvel Superheroes 4-D attraction at Madame Tussauds Hollywood.
As of this morning, the world is waking up to discover the magnitude of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War. With the biggest opening weekend box office of all time ($258.2M domestic, $640.9M globally), the 19th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) officially becomes the biggest superhero opening of all time - simultaneously grabbing the trophy for the biggest individual Saturday and Sunday box office off all time in North America. Capping off the first 10 years of Marvel Studios, the films will have pulled in more than $15B globally by the time Infinity War completes its run and the next five films are already on the way. The success of the studio is a team effort, and one of the people responsible has been there since the beginning - Victoria Alonso, EVP of Physical Production, and Executive Producer of Avengers: Infinity War. Together with Kevin Feige (President) and Louis D'Esposito (Co-President), she's helped shape the MCU into something that fans love and other studios often seek to emulate - overseeing every aspect of production from start to finish. Last week, mere hours after a late night celebrating the World Premiere of Infinity War, I was in the room at Marvel Studios in Burbank for one of the most unusual and enlightening meetings that I've ever been a part of. It was a conversation that for some mirrored the emotional rollercoaster (laughs! tears!) of the film itself - the rules tossed aside not for a rehash of what's been said elsewhere, but for a discussion about parenting, motherhood, and making the world a better place for our kids.
While word started to slip out a few days ago, now it's been made official -- Marvel Studios has begun principal photography in Los Angeles, California, on its newest film, CAPTAIN MARVEL. Set for release in the U.S. on March 8, 2019, the story follows Carol Danvers (Academy Award winner Brie Larson) "as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races." A period piece set in the 1990s, CAPTAIN MARVEL will take audiences on an adventure that occurs in a previously-unseen era in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
