Captain Marvel, which is the first Marvel Studios movie hitting theatres this year, will introduce female Marvel superhero Carol Danvers to the world. Set in the 90’s, the film will also see the return of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), and two of the Kree alien race members- Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) who first debuted in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy (2014).
Ronan is a powerful Kree Warrior and the commander of The Dark Aster who was formerly affiliated with Thanos. According to Captain Marvel executive producer Jonathan Schwartz, the Kree member will have a pretty sizable role in the upcoming film.
Last year during an interview with Comicbook.com on the set of Captain Marvel, Schwartz revealed that the film would delve deeper into Ronan’s origin roots in the Kree military prior to the radicalization that happened in the first Guardians film.
“It’s an earlier version of Ronan, who has not become the radical zealot that we saw in Guardians of the Galaxy,” Schwartz said. “So he has his own station in Kree society, on Hala, and has his own role to play in the Kree military that intersects with Starforce in an interesting way.”
While Schwartz hinted that the film will bring upon some character development in Ronan, he refrained himself from revealing if the changes will be in direct connection to the character’s role in Guardians.
“Just like there’s a Nick Fury origin story buried in this movie,” Schwartz said. “Buried a little bit deeper is the Ronan origin story.”
Captain Marvel is already proving herself one of the strongest Avengers by setting up first-day pre-sale records. The film had outpaced Deadpool 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, and even Black Panther’s established first-day ticket sales records on Atom tickets, falling short of the record set by Avengers: Infinity War.
On Fandango, the first day’s ticket sales for Captain Marvel is the third-highest of any Marvel film, just behind Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther.
Captain Marvel will fly into theaters on March 8th.
