Dear Marvel: Peggy Carter meeting Captain Marvel is literally the only thing I want from you.
Larson also shared a few images of the concept art on her Instagram account over the weekend, telling her followers, "Cool stuff is coming out of Hall H as we speak". Compared to Fox's liberal continuity compromises with the X-Men films, Marvel is an nearly an airtight vessel. They are also one of the three major alien races in the Marvel Comics universe, the other being the Kree and the Shi'ar. Skrulls can shapeshift and are redoubtable enemies.
Though the internet almost lost its mind the moment that the word "Skrull" passed Feige's lips, we've actually known for quite some time now that the shapeshifting aliens are some of the characters that Marvel and Fox have agreed to share with one another, much like Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. More than enough time for Skrulls to long have replaced characters in the MCU. Which is just what they did, as Secret Invasion revealed several prominent heroes to have secretly been Skrulls for years - the real heroes having been imprisoned in outer space or killed - kicking off mass paranoia and eventually a war between the actual Earth heroes and the invading Skrull armada.
But maybe she's not standing by waiting for orders-maybe she's just physically not on Earth at all! Could the MCU version of Captain Marvel be launched forward somehow instead? Obviously the easiest explanation would be an Infinity Stone, but Doctor Strange's Eye of Agamotto is the stone that controls time, so either Carol's going to get real cozy with the sorcerers of Kamar-Taj, or her journey into the future will be by some other means.
One thing's for sure: it will be a while before we have any definitive answers about what to expect from Carol Danver's MCU premiere.
When Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige announced that the Captain Marvel origin film is going to be set in the '90s and involve Carol Danvers fighting Skulls, we were surprised and left with a number of burning questions. Below in the comments, let us know why you think Carol is now AWOL!
