Marvel Studios recently released footage offering a new look at Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel. The upcoming film will feature the return of a young Nick Fury and Agent Coulson from the 90s. Although Coulson appeared to die in the first Avengers film in 2012, he continued to live on in ABC’s Agents of SHIELD.
Actor Clark Gregg, known as Agent Phil Coulson in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, also briefly appeared in the footage. Coulson says a line teasing the “Avengers Initiative” in the new footage. At the end of the video clip, Carol Danvers question Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) about the presence of the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Department (aka S.H.I.E.L.D.) logo on clothing, despite its status as a secret organization.
Gregg also took to Twitter to take a jab on the fictional organization’s penchant for wearing its symbol in public tweeting, “Finally some clap back on the omnipresent #SHIELD logo.” You can check out the post below.
Taking place in the 90s, Captain Marvel will see the return of a number of familiar faces from the history of the MCU including Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) and Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) who were introduced as villains in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
During an interview with Screen Rant, Hounsou confirmed that his character’s return to the MCU does not mean Captain Marvel will serve as a prequel to the Guardians of the Galaxy film.
“This is a completely separate story, standalone story, nothing to do with Guardians other than the fact that some of those characters interact with each other later,” Hounsou explained. “Other than that, no. It’s very different from Guardians, yes.”
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Clark Gregg, Lee Pace, Djimon Hounsou, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace, and Annette Bening.
Captain Marvel will arrive in theaters on March 8.
