Being the MCU's first female-lead film, Captain Marvel has very high expectations. The movie won't release until March of 2019, but that doesn't stop the crew behind the film from giving us hints as to what we will see in the movie.
A big question has been about Captain Marvel's origin story and how she will fit into the rest of the MCU. This film certainly is my second highest anticipated MCU film coming in the future, right behind Infinity War. According to Kevin Feige, as he told Vulture, the Captain Marvel movie will focus more solely on Carol Danvers herself and not so much her powers. Here's what he said:
"That’s a big part of the story line we’re putting together, and it’s certainly been a big part of the development conversation. Particularly for Captain Marvel, which is going to have a lot of spectacle, it ultimately needs to be about the three-dimensional, multilayered Carol Danvers character. You have to be able to track her and follow her and relate to her at all points of the movie, regardless of how many visual effects and spaceships and bad guys are filling the frame. That’s what’s important."
That is about as much a we knew at the time, until today. With an interview between io9 and Inverse, Dr. Spiros Michalakis, a quantum physicist talked about his role in helping develop the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He talked about the Quantum Realm which was introduced in Ant-Man. He said it is a place:
"Where time and space dissolve"
Otherwise known as the Microverse, which we saw Scott Lang travel to when trying to save his daughter from Yellowjacket in the final scene. Dr. Spiros Michalakis says the Microverse will play a role in Captain Marvel and how Carol Danvers acquires her powers, which we should've expected since they already confirmed it wouldn't be the same as her Kree radiation explosion origin in the comics. Dr. Spiros Michalakis went on to say:
“This is exciting for the future. There are different ways that some of these ideas appear on-screen in a few years. Not just for Ant-Man, but also for Captain Marvel and all of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
