First 'Captain Marvel' Concept Art Shows Brie Larson in Her Supersuit

What's more, Samuel L. Jackson is joining Larson in the production, reprising his role Head of SHIELD Nick Fury.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, director Taika Waititi, actors Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston attend the Marvel Studios "Thor: Ragnarok" Presentation during Comic-Con International 2017 at San Diego Convention Center on July 22, 2017 in San Diego, California. It's unclear if we'll see how he lost his eye or if that's something that'll remain untouched for now, though. The Skrulls are shape-shifting aliens and can pretend to be anyone else, so the introduction of these characters could upend the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

What makes the inclusion of the actual comic book versions of the Skrulls such a big surprise here, is that many believed that they had been bundled along with the Fantastic Four cinematic rights owned by Fox.

Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and is set to open on March 8, 2019. According to reports from Comic-Con, the hero's movie will take place before the events of the rest of the MCU-including the movie that sparked its run, Iron Man-taking place during the 1990s.

Kuwait's move came following a court ruling a year ago that implicated some Iranians in a spying case, known as the "Abdali cell". Kuwait also reduced the number of Iranian diplomats to 9, while giving Iranian diplomats 45 days to leave the country.

As for why the Skrulls have gone unmentioned for so long within the MCU, Feige seemed to imply we'll get our answer in Captain Marvel. A Nick Fury who still has both his eyes, as was revealed!

If you read comics growing up, then you're probably going to see a lot of callbacks to the Captain Marvel content that you know and love no matter what time period the film is set. Pitting the two intergalactic powerhouses against one another, the story mostly focused on the original Captain Marvel, the Kree warrior Mar-Vell.
