At the end of 'Avengers: Infinity War', the Russo brothers laid the foundation for their next big origin movie, that of Carol Danvers' aka Captain Marvel.

Faced by a possibility of mass destruction, in the last scenes of the movie, Nick Fury is seen hitting the panic button - Code Red. 

And the next thing that we know is, a logo pops up on the screen confirming Captain Marvel's arrival in the shared, inter-connected universe that the creators have been spinning for the past 10 years over 18 blockbusters. 

However, when Marvel's first female superhero-fronted movie finally takes off, it is certainly going to be more than just an origin story. In fact, according to Marvel Studios producer Nate Moore, the upcoming movie - marking 2019's big release - will hardly fit into the traditional mold. 

"I think there is a structure to origin films that audiences sometimes can get ahead of very quickly. So, if we do origin films, internally, we talk about how we can subvert that structure," Moore told Cinema Blend, dishing about the plot of Captain Marvel. 


He continued, "For instance, Captain Marvel is an origin movie in that you haven't seen her before, but we think we've stumbled upon a structure there that isn't the traditional structure of what origin movies typically are, which is you meet the character, they have a problem, they get powers at the end of the first act, and the end of the second act they learn about the powers, the third act they probably fight a villain who has a function of the same powers."

"That's a lot of times what a typical origin movie is structured like, but as we introduce new characters moving forward, we want to find ways to subvert that structure, so at least the experience of the film feels new to audiences. We're very conscious of making sure that audiences don't get things that feel like they've seen them before."

What shape Captain Marvel's solo outing ultimately takes, is best left to the time. Starring Brie Larson in the lead role, the film arrives in theaters on March 6, 2019.
