Entertainment Weekly and Brie Larson dropped hints that they would be releasing some information that would break the internet. The stories came out and it was mostly about the first cover or EW magazine and some photos of characters from the upcoming movie. Here is what is now known:
Of course, some of this came out previously from other sources but here is a breakdown of characters, concepts, and more that will be features in the Captain Marvel movie.
Jude Law will be playing Walter Lawson/Mar-vell (first appears in Marvel Super-Heroes #12). He will be mentoring Carol Danvers (first appearance Marvel Super-Heroes #13). He will also be leading Starforce (first appearance in Avengers #346). It is interesting to note, Starforce was also in Mighty Thor #446, which came out the same month, April 1992, as Avengers #346.
Starfore will be made up of Walter Lawson/Mar-Vell , Carol Danvers Captain Marvel, and a few Kree. These include:
Minn-Erva – (not a known character but there is a Kree named Doctor Minerva who first appears in Captain Marvel #50.)
Korath the Pursuer – Seen previously in Guardians of the Galaxy, first appears in Inhumans #11
Att-Lass – Quasar #9
Bron Char – First appears in Captain America #8 (1998)
The Skrulls will play a big part in the movie. Seems that this will focus on the Kree/Skrull War, which ran from Avengers #89 to Avengers #97. One Skrull in particular Talos, will be in the film. He first appears in Incredible Hulk #418. Unlike his comic book counterpart, he will be able to shape shift in the movie, Talos in the comics could not change shape.
Another character of note is Maria Rambeau. She is a military pilot and goes by the call sign Photon. Her first appearance is Avengers #246. She is also a mother in the movie to Monica Rambeau. Monica was the first female Captain Marvel and also went by Photon in the comics. Her first appearance was in Amazing Spider-man Annual #16. Monica may appear in the movie as a child. Unsure if Maria will have powers in the movie.
