In an interview, actor Clark Gregg mentioned that his character remains to be new to S.H.I.E.L.D. on the time of Captain Marvel because it takes place 10 years earlier than Iron Man.
17 Wish to see: MAR-VELL
When the primary Captain Marvel trailer got here out, many followers believed that Jude Regulation was taking part in Mar-Vell — the hero who Carol Danvers receives her powers from. Nonetheless, this turned out to be inaccurate, as Regulation can be taking part in a very completely different character within the film. Nonetheless, there are actually considerations that the film is not going to function Mar-Vell in any respect.
This could be a disgrace. HA Captain Marvel origin story for Carol wouldn’t work as effectively with out Mar-Vell and would seemingly imply that the MCU would possibly utterly change how she receives her powers. A great way round this might be to have Mar-Vell seem on Earth when Carol is a baby. For now, thoough, we solely know that Mar-Vell is an nearly legendary determine to the Kree.
16 (Most likely) Confirmed: YON-ROGG
When the Captain Marvel trailers and promotional pictures first got here out, many followers assumed that Jude Regulation was taking part in Mar-Vell within the film. Nonetheless, the true identification of his character has since been revealed. As a substitute of Mar-Vell, Regulation appears to be taking part in Yon-Rogg. If the film stays true to the comics, he’ll find yourself as a villains within the film.
Within the comics, Yon-Rogg despatched Mar-Vell to Earth to determine how a tradition so primitive may cease a Kree Sentinel. Over time, jealousy triggered Yon-Rogg to hate Mar-Vell and he quickly got down to get rid of his rival. It was Yon-Rogg who kidnapped Carol Danvers and was liable for her gaining her powers.

In Avengers: Infinity Struggle, Thanos despatched a crew to begin the invasion on Earth earlier than he confirmed up. Amongst them was one among his most trusted troopers — Cull Obsidian. When eagle-eyed Marvel Comics followers first noticed Cull, they observed one thing very fascinating in regards to the warrior.
For those who look very carefully at Cull Obsidian’s waist when he faces Iron Man, Physician Unusual, Wong, and Bruce Banner within the streets of Greenwich, you’ll discover that there’s a gold, blue, and crimson sash round him. These are clearly the colours of Captain Marvel’s costume. Many followers imagine that it is a important element. It additionally makes us surprise if Thanos despatched his crew to Kree airspace throughout his journey to cleanse the universe. In spite of everything, Thanos does have a reference to two of the Kree warriors who seem in Captain Marvel.
14 Confirmed: RONAN THE ACCUSER
The final time that followers of the Marvel Cinematic Universe noticed Ronan the Accuser, he was attempting to destroy the planet of Xandar with the intention to search vengeance towards the Nova Corps. Fortunately, he Guardians of the Galaxy stopped and eradicated him. Nonetheless, since it is a prequel that takes place over a decade earlier than the occasions of that film, Ronan is again.
This is smart. Within the trailers, we see Captain Marvel working for the Kree military. There’s one scene that reveals Carol Danvers and her crew strolling by Ronan, who’s standing along with his Cosmi-Rod. Whereas the film will depict the Kree-Skrull Struggle, Ronan was all the time thinking about returning to battle the Nova Corps, and within the comics, he sabotaged many missions involving Mar-Vell and Yon-Rogg in his efforts to take management.
13 Wish to see: NOVA PRIME
With the Kree-Skrull Struggle going down throughout the Captain Marvel film, it is smart that the Nova Corps would possibly make an look. The Kree-Nova Struggle came about lengthy earlier than the battle with the Skrulls, and the Nova Corps — as an intergalactic police drive — would have identified in regards to the battle.
Whereas there are a selection of Nova Corps members who may return for a cameo in Captain Marvel, the one member who looks like the most effective guess is Nova Prime. Glenn Shut was fantastic in her position in Guardians of the Galaxy and could be a welcome again in Captain Marvel. We would additionally like to see an look by Richard Ryder, however we can’t maintain our breath on that one.
12 Confirmed: KORATH
When taking an in depth take a look at Carol Danvers’ crew within the Captain Marvel trailer, the one determine who stands out for all Marvel Cinematic Universe followers is Korath. He, after all, was a significant antagonist in Guardians of the Galaxy, the right-hand man to Ronan the Accuser throughout his makes an attempt at destroying Xandar. He was additionally the primary dangerous man proven within the film, as he tried to seize Peter Quill.
In Captain Marvel, it’s clear that he’s a member of the Kree Military and is working alongside Mar-Vell and Yon-Rogg. It is fascinating to notice, although, that Korath was educated alongside Gamora and Nebula as a baby by Thanos, so someday after that coaching and this film, he joined the Kree Military earlier than ultimately leaving to assist Ronan on his quest.
11 Wish to see: THANOS

There are appearances of Ronan the Accuser and Korath the Pursuer — each of whom serve underneath Thanos within the first Guardians of the Galaxy film. There’s the truth that Thanos’s soldier Cull Obsidian had a sash that was the colours of Captain Marvel’s costume in Avengers: Infinity Struggle.
There’s additionally the truth that the film goes to steer immediately into Avengers 4, and the anticipated arrival of Captain Marvel into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s present timeline to assist attempt to reverse the devastation that was attributable to Thanos. Due to this, we actually hope that Thanos will seem someplace in Captain Marvel.
10 Confirmed: BRON-CHAR
The Captain Marvel trailer reveals us a scene during which Carol Danvers walks by Ronan the Accuser along with her fellow Kree troopers behind her. It’s straightforward to acknowledge sure characters, similar to Jude Regulation’s Yon-Rogg and Korath. Nonetheless, the opposite figures aren’t as apparent.
The bearded man immediately behind Captain Marvel is Bron-Char. He’s a member of the Starforce of the Kree Military. He’s additionally from the comics, the place he was an agent serving the Lunatic Legion throughout a Kree invasion of Earth. This grooup had two primary objectives — the primary was looking for racial pureblood dominance, which led to their second purpose of destroying Mar-Vell. This makes it seem to be his loyalty lies with Yon-Rogg if his story stays true to the comics. The Lunatic Legion was immediately liable for the occasion that led to Mar-Vell’s most cancers within the comics.
9 Wish to see: S.W.O.R.D.
Within the first Thor film, Eric Selvig and Jane Foster obtained a number of gear from S.H.I.E.L.D. to proceed their analysis. Selvig brings up one other super-secret group known as S.W.O.R.D. This excited many Marvel Comics followers as a result of this was the primary second that the MCU hinted on the cosmic world that Guardians of the Galaxy lastly launched years later.
If Captain Marvel was betrayed by the Kree Military, which appears to be the place the film is heading, then the place has she been for the final 20 years? The most evident reply, and the explanation whhy Nick Fury had a communicator to name her on the finish of Avengers: Infinity Struggle, is likely to be that she was working off Earth, for S.W.O.R.D., one other secret group that Fury has saved hidden from the world.
8 Confirmed: MINN-ERVA
The ultimate individual strolling behind Captain Marvel within the trailer with the Kree Military is Min-Erva. As seen within the trailer, she is lugging round some main firepower and that’s as a result of she is the professional marksman for the Starforce. Within the comedian books, she had a sophisticated backstory that seemingly is not going to play into her position within the film.
Within the comics, she got here to Earth looking for out Mar-Vell. In contrast to different Kree warriors like Bron-Char and Yon-Rogg, Minn-Erva wished to seek out Mar-Vell and mate with him. Her complete purpose was to have a child to realize entry to his altered genes to assist progress the Kree genetic code. Within the film, it appears like Minn-Erva isn’t glad working with Carol Danvers, as she sees her as a menace to her spot within the Starforce.
7 Wish to see: ADAM WARLOCK
Each of the Guardians of the Galaxy motion pictures featured Easter eggs hinting at Adam Warlock. Within the first film, we noticed the Collector’s museum the place a beginning pod was noticed. Nonetheless, director James Gunn mentioned that it was a beginning pod — nevertheless it was not Adam Warlock. Then, in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, a post-credit stinger concerned Ayesha close to a beginning pod, along with her saying that she would name her creation Adam.
Now, followers of the comedian books know that Adam Warlock performed an enormous position within the Infinity Gauntlet storyline and he’s the one who defeated Thanos in the long run. Nonetheless, it looks like Physician Unusual took his position in Infinity Struggle. Now, if Adam Warlock is to play a job within the cosmic universe, it’s a good time to truly introduce him — if nowhere else than with a stinger within the credit.
6 Confirmed: TALOS
Whereas there’s a number of hypothesis about what is going to occur to Captain Marvel with regards to the Kree and the way she is going to fall from grace, the principle focus of the film appears to be primarily based on the Kree-Skrull Struggle. In that facet, Talos has been confirmed to look within the film as a part of the Skrull invasion of Earth whereas posing as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Now, it is a large change from the comedian books. Within the comics, Talos was a Skrull who was not able to shapeshifting, so if he’s posing as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, this signifies that his powers are the identical as different Skrulls. He was one of many fiercest Skrull warriors within the comics, so we anticipate him to steer the cost towards the Kree and Captain Marvel.
5 Wish to see: ANT-MAN
Stepping into the precise stingers, there’s one which simply has to look after Captain Marvel. Most likely essentially the most disappointing factor to occur in Ant-Man & The Wasp got here when Hank and Janet Pym have been lastly reunited and introduced their household with Hope again collectively. Then, within the post-credit stinger, they have been turned to mud as a part of Thanos’ plan. It was a cheerful ending that was instantly undone.
Nonetheless, the fascinating factor was that Ant-Man was trapped within the Quantum Realm. One wonders how Ant-Man will get again to Earth earlier than he goes insane since nobody is aware of that he’s there. The trailer reveals that Carol can name her energy from an inter-dimensional breach — and that is likely to be the Quantum Realm. If Carol finds Scott and saves him within the stinger, this may instantly arrange Avengers 4.
4 Confirmed: KREE SCIENTIST
There’s a large star in Captain Marvel and he or she would not also have a identify but. She is portrayed by Anette Bening, a four-time Oscar-nominated actress, and he or she seems to be taking part in a scientist. Now, it is very important notice that if she is a Kree scientist, there’s one distinctive trait that may maintain her distinctive — she isn’t blue-skinned. Since some Kree troopers like Bron-Char imagine that pure blood is vital, this might additionally put her at risk.
Her addition is much like the additions of Robert Redford (who was a high-ranking S.H.I.E.L.D. leader-turned-traitor) and Glenn Shut (who was the pinnacle of the Nova Corps). Her half might be crucial however solely in a smaller position. She appears to be the one who turned Carol into Captain Marvel primarily based on the trailer, and there’s no comedian ebook counterpart for that position.
3 Wish to see: GAMORA
The final time that Marvel followers noticed Gamora, Thanos was chunking her off an enormous cliff to get the Soul Stone. There was additionally a second on the finish of the film during which Gamora’s soul confirmed as much as ask Thanos if he had completed his objectives. At this level, it appeared that she had accepted her destiny and was prepared to maneuver on. Nonetheless, she was sacrificed to the Soul Stone and he or she won’t be gone but.
In relation to showing in Captain Marvel, it is very important perceive the scene the place she fell to her destiny. It came about on a planet that nobody had seen within the MCU but known as Vormir. Nonetheless, it may tie into Captain Marvel — Vormir is in Kree airspace.
2 Confirmed: MARIA RAMBEAU
In the latest Captain Marvel trailer, there was a better shot of Carol Danvers getting right into a fighter jet whereas she was nonetheless on Earth. The identify on the jet subsequent to Carol’s belongs to a different pilot named Maria Rambeau.

So, who’s Maria Rambeau? She is the only mom of Monica Rambeau, which ties into the comedian books. Monica is the superhero generally known as Spectrum, though she was often known as Photon and Pulsar. She additionally served as a Captain Marvel at one level when she was a part of the Avengers.
1 Wish to see: ROCKET RACCOON
There’s little probability that followers will get to see Rocket Raccoon in Captain Marvel. Nonetheless, if it did occur — perhaps in a post-credit stinger — it might be nice enjoyable for followers of Marvel Comics. The unique Captain Marvel poster had a cat’s tail on the backside and most comedian ebook followers knew who the cat was. Within the new trailer, we see Nick Fury petting Chewie and loving each second.
Within the film, the cat is called Goose. Nonetheless, anybody who adopted Captain Marvel within the comics is aware of that her cat is called Chewie and that she is not an actual cat. As a substitute, she is a Flerken — an alien species that appears like a cat however has some gnarly powers. Nonetheless, if there’s one character within the Marvel Universe who hates Ferkens, it’s Rocket Raccoon, who wished to get rid of Chewie the primary time he noticed her.
