Captain Marvel is going to focus on the superhero’s origin story, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has confirmed.
He briefly touched on Captain Marvel - which is still a few years away - while gushing about Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch, reported Ace Showbiz.
“I think Benedict is one of those ways. Benedict is an amazing actor and totally different from Hemsworth and totally different from Downey.
“And, we want to stay true to who he was in the books. The metamorphosis of what he goes through is more drastic than Tony Stark and that was fun to chart. I guess Black Panther isn’t really an origin story since we saw him already in Civil War, but his standalone (film) certainly introduces you to 99 % of his world which you never saw before. And Captain Marvel is certainly an origin story from the start,” he said.
