It is nearly as if the studios are embarrassed of the fact and are trying to retrofit their past so that by the time the series reach the present day, the cinematic universes will have plenty of female superheroes fighting alongside their male counterparts. If you have not seen those movies it seems rather clunky that this character pops up but he is played so villainly delicious by Lee Pace, but for those fans that have attended every single prior movie, why not toss him into the story?
To be fair, Captain Marvel opens up a new can of worms because she's so insanely powerful, and I predict that they're probably going to keep her in the cosmic realm because as her movie shows, nothing on Earth is much of a threat to her.
She also explores her past, discovering that her real name is Carol Danvers and that she was a tough Air Force jet pilot. But the film is no Wonder Woman (the 2017 hit from a different franchise), whose story of a woman finding power in a man's world spoke to an audience beyond fans of comics-based movies.
The new Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Captain Marvel takes place in 1995 and features some characters from the universe who we've met before! We're not exactly sure how long post-Infinity War, but we have to assume it's relatively soon thanks to the presence of Steve's beard (while Cap was fully bearded when Infinity War ended, he's been clean shaved in both Endgame trailers so far).

Can Marvel Still Do a Secret Invasion Movie?
According to Entertainment Weekly, playing the eponymous superhero made Larson feel stronger and taught her how to stand up for herself. Nearly 2,500 participants were surveyed, male and female, including kids between the ages of 10 and 19 and parents of children aged five to nine, who answered on behalf of their children. Within the superhero genre, it's likely to lead to more. For girls, that number dropped to just 21 per cent. Unfortunately, not even an inspirational dose of Girl Power can save Captain Marvel from crashing down to Earth. TamilRockers strikes again, and this time its target is none other than Captain Marvel!
Kevin Feige: Well, I'd say two things. You may think you know how bad some music was in the '90s, but nothing can prepare you for the horror of No Doubt's "Just a Girl" serving as the background for a enormous superhero clash. Come to think of it, in this age of supreme idiocy, aren't we all? "I want to know who's on the other end of that thing", says Black Widow, who turns around to see Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers somehow standing there and staring her in the face. "It's a huge improvement, especially on the female empowered characters". Maybe it's the '90s kid in me that absolutely loved Captain Marvel, but there was something that just took me back to growing up. "DC has always been pretty conscientious about changing with those times". Though conceived years before the release of 2017's immensely successful Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel was left scrambling to create a female superhero capable of holding her own with the meticulously crafted MCU boys club.
For young women like Chaudry, it couldn't be soon enough. It's a monumental shift from what films have historically done, she says. Or the Uber driver who told me Black Panther was the most boring movie he'd ever seen - was he watching a documentary about literal black panthers? "Just like boys do with Superman and Batman".
