Per EW, Jackson will play a younger version of Fury in Captain Marvel, which is set in the '90s.

The character details discuss who is playing who. What ends up happening is that part of Mar-Vell's DNA fuses with Carol's granting her superhuman powers. And obviously, that's not what we want to do.

Seems like a natural direction to take things, considering Carol will be getting her powers in a freak accident (assuming they stick relatively close to the comic book canon, but we'll see). "We're pulling from some of that for inspiration".

The first look at Captain Marvel has found its way online! The article gave some context about Captain Marvel's green costume by establishing that the film opens with Carol fully empowered and a member of the Kree Starforce. Among those joining the cast also include Jude Law, Gemma Chan and Annette Bening. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississipi Grind) direct from a script by Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (GLOW), as well as Boden and Fleck. "We're looking at a blank wall, and it says Avengers 3, Ant-Man and [the] Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers 4". As EW explains it, Maria is one of Carol Danvers' oldest friends and a fellow Air Force pilot, who flies under the call sign Photon. It will feature a de-aged Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson).

Now, Captain Marvel takes you back to mid-90s, long before Steve Rogers got his shield and Tony Stark his suit. Djimon Hounsou's Korath als returns from GOTG.

And here's Ronan The Accuser, who.well, who we're quite surprised to see here! "That's a motif throughout the piece, the element of learning to control one's emotions and to use your powers wisely".

And of course, there are Captain Marvel's villains - the Skrulls - a shapeshifting race of predator aliens who invade and conquer planets by insinuating themselves into societies in order to topple them from the inside out. But he's got another face, too...

In the comics, Talos is a rare Skrull born without the ability to shape shift.

Carol Danvers' origins as a superhero won't be the focus of Captain Marvel, but her background - specifically her genetic connection to the Kree - will play a role in the film, according to star Brie Larson.
