Guess Who Will Turn Up in "Captain Marvel"

Over the summer, we learned a few things about Marvel's "Captain Marvel." This was going to be the first female lead Marvel film in the MCU. We also learned a few years prior that Academy Award winning actress Brie Larson would be cast as Carol Danvers, the woman who would become Captain Marvel. It was a great bit of casting and now we got some other tidbits.

The things we learned over the summer included that The Skrulls would appear. Which was a property thought to belong exclusively to Fox Marvel since the Skrulls are mainly a villain of the Fantastic Four. The film was also going to be set in the 1990's and would include Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury. Today, some big casting pieces were given, proving once more that we are going back in time. Today, Clark Gregg was confirmed to return as Agent Phil Coulson. Lee Pace was to return as Ronan The Accuser, the villain from "Guardians of the Galaxy." Djimon Hounsou, who played Ronan's right-hand man in "Guardians of the Galaxy" will also be returning.

In the comics, there was a huge Marvel story arc involving a war between The Skrulls and The Kree alien races, I wonder if we will get a little glimpse of that war? Ronan and Korath, who Hounsou plays, are both Kree aliens. So, I wonder if we will get a glimpse of that war? Even though the film is set in the 1990's, I wonder if the movie will begin to bridge the gap between the MCU movies and the MCU TV shows better? It's all certainly possible.

I can't wait to see it!
