Tonight we finally get to see the official trailer for Marvel Studio’s upcoming entry to their ever expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just like Marvel Universe-616 which was born at the Big Bang and continues to expand ever outward there doesn’t seem to be any sign of the MCU suddenly collapsing under the weight of fan expectations and the imagination of the writers and filmmakers who have been tapped by Kevin Feige and group to usher in the Golden Age of Comic Book films.
This past summer, fans of the MCU were treated to the spectacle (and surprisingly emotional) that was Avengers: Infinity War. Those who stayed for the final stinger at the end of the credits of that film were treated to a clue as to who may just save the MCU from Thanos’ snap.
Captain Marvel will be Marvel Studio’s first female-led entry to the series. Some have been in the camp that Marvel took too long to do such a project while a small, albeit very vocal group think Marvel have been bit by the SJW bug.
For the most part the majority of fans are just excited to see the adventures of one Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel finally up on the big screen. We shall see this March 8 whether Captain Marvel lives up to the hype and excitement that has been building since the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
Gene Colan was born in New York and studied art at the Art Students League of New York. Colan joined the Army Air Corps in 1944 and served in the Philippines where he drew for the Manila Times. Upon returning to civilian life in 1946, Colan began to work for Timely Comics, which eventually became Marvel Comics. Over the course of his long career, Colan illustrated everything from super hero to young romance comics. He might be best known for his work in the 70s, when he illustrated two cult comics — Tomb of Dracula and Howard the Duck. In 2005, Colan was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame.
