Finally, Marvel Studios are offering fans glimpses of Captain Marvel six months before the film premieres in the theatres.
We can say that Disney is not behind this and it could be one of their licensing partners but this does add excitement for the upcoming adventure of Carol Danvers on the big screen. The new products can be seen on Amazon, which gives us an official look at Captain America in the film.

The images belong to a notebook produced by Insights and it shows a stylised take on Captain Marvel. We also get to see her stylised logo along with a nifty little tagline: Protector Of the Skies.
Captain Marvel will take all fans back to the 90’s as the film will adapt the beloved storyline of Kree-Skrull war. Marvel President Kevin Feige revealed that the film will show that time in MCU when Nick Fury knew nothing about aliens or super-powered people.
Producer Kevin Feige spoke with the Toronto Sun about his reasoning for setting the film in this era.
“The answer is, you’ll see in the storytelling of the movie.” Feige explained. “But it allows us to play in an area that we have never played in before and tapping into a ’90s action genre was fun for us and being able to see an earlier part of the MCU before Nick Fury knew anything about aliens or anything about super-powered people and also tapping into the Kree-Skrull War, which in the comics was a huge part of the comic mythology, seemed like a fun thing to try and a fun way to give Carol Danvers her own standalone origin story.”
Even producer Nate Moore supported Feige saying that the film will be much more than just a superhero origin story.
“I think the way the film opens is much different than an origin movie, and because she is a heroine that you haven’t seen before, we’re able to tell this story structurally in a way that will feel unexpected and hopefully will keep audiences off balance,” Moore told CinemaBlend. “Still balanced enough that they can enjoy the film, but even just making it a period film is sort of interesting in that it’s not just a function of the world as we know it in the MCU today.”
Captain Marvel will hit the theatres on March 8 next year.
