Richardson showed this panel as an example of how Jessica Jones tackles feminism

It'll be set in the early 90s and Samuel L. Jackson will show up as Nick Fury but this time. he'll have both of his eyes! For one: Why haven't we heard of Captain Marvel? "Almost anything else is a spoiler other than to say that the '90s would be a fun period to make a superhero movie in". Though Marvel hasn't sent official stills yet, several Hall H audience members shared photos from inside the convention.

Captain Marvel is now scheduled for release in March 2019, so it'll probably be a while before we get any more teases about the contents of the film. In front of a packed audience of thousands of screaming fans, Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige revealed that Captain Marvel will not only take place in the early 1990s, but it will feature the shapeshifting alien race, the Skrulls, as its villains. With the group arriving in Captain Marvel, a whole new set of stories are possible in the MCU moving forward. Kevin Feige will produce the film, written by Meg LeFauve and Nicole Perlman.

The panel saw a first look at Larson's suit for the character, which is staying very true to her design in the comics, alongside some info on her upcoming solo film. What may be the biggest reveal, however, is that the shape shifting alien Skrulls are going to embody Danvers' big challenge and that she's going to be punching many of them in the face, if concept art is to be believed.
