As Ant-Man & The Wasp crawl all over the box-office (but not ours yet because it’s coming home), the Marvel machine is still hard at work. Spider-Man: Far From Home is currently filming and now as reported by the another film’s lead, Brie Larson aka Carol Danvers has finished her first cinematic stint as Captain Marvel.
The actress tweeted a new photo with a clapperboard and a calendar all used up confirming that Captain Marvel had officially wrapped. It also followed on from co-director Ryan Fleck putting a photo on Instagram that his job was coming to an end working on the eagerly anticipated Marvel movie.

A rarity in the MCU for a number of reasons, Captain Marvel will actually be set even before Iron Man but after Steve Rogers became The First Avenger. Kicking off in the 90’s, the film will detail how hotshot pilot, Carol Danvers got involved with some alien antics and became one of the most powerful being in the universe, Captain Marvel. Most powerful being that still uses a pager, but whatever.
Joining in on the action is Jude Law as alien hero Mar-vell, Ben Mendelsohn as an as yet unconfirmed villian. Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte and Mckenna Grace also star.
Interestingly, Samuel L. Jackson will be appearing as Nick Fury pre-eye-patch and former Marvel alumni, Clark Gregg and Cobie Smulders will be back as Agent Coulson and Maria Hill a long time before one got impaled and the other was scattered to the wind (spoilers). There’s also some former Guardians of the Galaxy foes in the form of Lee Pace’s Ronan The Accuser and Djimon Honsou’s Korath.
There’s no confirmation as to when we’ll first get a glimpse of the Captain in action, but the date for her official arrival is March 8, 2019. That’s before she joins the Avengers in their second round of the Infinity War on April 26, 2019.
