Revealed on EW‘s new issue cover, the superhero’s suit is familiar, but has been tweaked from the comics for its MCU debut:
EW’s report confirms that this is not a traditional origin story, beginning after Carol Danvers already has her powers, and has joined a Kree military team called Starforce. Taking place in the ’90s, Samuel L. Jackson will play a younger Nick Fury, complete with both eyes and a desk job at S.H.I.E.L.D.
The report also confirms that Jude Law (as a Kree military commander) and Ben Mendelsohn (as Talos, the head of a Skrull invasion of Earth) will appear in the film.
And, of course, Captain Marvel will return to Earth to find out about her past (presumably revealing the origin of those powers) and fight off the shape-shifting Skrull threat.
