Captain Marvel is now undergoing additional photography. Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) and Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) were photographed on set in Los Angeles yesterday.
Reshoots and additional photography are par for the course on big blockbusters, especially the ones from Marvel Studios. Marvel has made additional photography a regular part of its production cycle from the beginning of the MCU.
Time flies and it’s already been a couple months since we saw the first trailer. We could be due for another one soon, but I’m guessing we’ll still have to wait a bit. Avengers 4 will be Marvel Studios’ next trailer drop. We could get our next glimpse of Captain Marvel in December or January.
The photos don’t reveal anything you haven’t already seen (Carol’s Kree suit and Coulson’s hair) in the trailer and official images from the film. If you’re so inclined, however, you can see the new photos at Just Jared.
Another major hurdle for Disney’s Fox purchase has been cleared. Disney has confirmed that regulators in China approved the company’s pending acquisition of 21st Century Fox assets without conditions. There are still several other countries that need to approve the deal, but it has been cleared in three of the world’s biggest markets (United States, European Union, and China).
For the past few months, there has been some paranoia that the Disney-Fox deal could be caught in the crossfire of a trade war between the U.S. and China. Those fears, however, were inflated by unrealistic speculation. Disney and CEO Bob Iger have earned too much respect in China to become collateral damage in trade hostilities that have nothing to do with the Mouse.
With the approval from China now in the bag, Disney should be even more confident in its ability to start closing the Fox deal in the first quarter of 2019. That means Marvel Studios should have access to the X-Men and Fantastic Four franchises (and Deadpool) within a few months.
Disney California Adventure Park is the place to “Make Mine Marvel” in Anaheim. The park already features several Marvel characters you can meet for cool photo ops. Starting early next year, Steve Rogers won’t be the only captain in Disney California Adventure. He’ll be joined by Carol Danvers herself, Captain Marvel!
Disney has officially announced Captain Marvel’s impending arrival at DCA just in time for the character’s feature film debut in Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel on March 8, 2019. I’m sure all the kids (and if we’re being honest, the adults) who see the film will be excited to meet Carol at the park.
DCA has been pretty quick to include Marvel characters in time for (or soon after) their movies hit theaters. Black Panther and the Dora Milaje made their way to DCA earlier this year. Over the next few years, we could see even more Marvel characters inside the park, perhaps including a few Eternals.
An entire Marvel-themed section with new attractions is currently under construction at DCA. It is still many months away, but in the meantime, guests can enjoy these character meet and greets and Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: BREAKOUT!
