Captain Marvel vs Thanos: New photo plots ultimate MCU faceoff as Brie Larson wraps up production
Popular digital artist reimagined an entire scenario, where Larson's Cap Marvel comes face to face with Thanos, a worthy antagonist brought to life by Josh Brolin.
Now that 'Ant-Man and the Wasp' has already made its way to the theaters all eyes are on Marvel's first female-fronted superhero movie, 'Captain Marvel'. Starring Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson in the lead role as Carol Danvers aka Cap Marvel the film takes off in 2019.
There might be a better half of the year left before the much-ambitious release but, that's hardly stopping fans and online artists from speculating and imagining what Danvers' solo outing would look like or just in case a grand faceoff in case Larson's superhero comes across a certain mad titan who has been wreaking havoc on Earth.
Taking a cue from all these plot theories, popular digital artist BossLogic reimagined an entire scenario, where the comic book hero comes face to face with Thanos, a worthy antagonist brought to life by Josh Brolin in the recently-released 'Avengers: Infinity War'. And his depiction is detailed and thorough, to say the least. Attention to details was perhaps the keyword the artist was keeping in mind while pitting Larson's superhero against the massive villainy.
While the two main characters compose the majority of the picture in the foreground it's interesting to note a rubble of Avengers, including glimpses of Thor's hammer and Captain America's shield and even members of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Of course, it is a fan art and not the official concept art regardless, the picture provides an exciting perspective anticipating a conflict that fans know is coming their way.
By the end of 'Infinity War' in fact, an obvious hint was dropped as far as Captain Marvel's involvement in the aftermath of Thanos' finger-snap is concerned. In a quick ode to the 90s, Nick Fury in his very last moment was seen paging a code red asking for help as the Earth-bound Avengers perished and thus setting the stage for Captain Marvel's introduction. But before welcoming the all-powerful heroine, fighting inter-galactic wars, back on Earth, Marvel will duly explore Danvers' origin story, as teased by the synopsis.
The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."
Slated for release on March 8, 2019, the film directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and starring Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, and Jude Law alongside Larson recently wrapped production an occasion which was marked on social media with a recent tweet from the leading lady.
