Here's the most surprising new 'Captain Marvel' revelation
Marvel will dole them out slowly, of course, but especially because the third "Avengers" film ended on such a cliffhanger this summer, the geek internet is hungry to know what "Captain Marvel" holds when it comes out in March, before we finally get the fourth "Avengers."
With that in mind, there were some interesting nuggets - including confirmation of Carol Danvers's modern red, blue and gold suit - but one of the most striking revelations was the introduction of its cinematic military team.
Get ready for your closeup, Starforce.
Starforce, the Kree Empire's crack fighting unit, made their debut in Avengers more than a quarter-century ago but have mostly flown relatively low on the radar in the comics.
The team's debut issue (No. 346), penned by Bob Harras with art by Steven Epting and Tom Palmer, introduced us to the assembled Captain Atlas, Doctor Minerva, Korath, Shatterax, Supremor and Ultimus.
For the movie, we learn in Entertainment Weekly that Marvel has brought together an elite team likely led by Jude Law's Kree warrior Mar-Vell. He, of course, is the Stan Lee and Gene Colan creation whom Jim Starlin memorably killed off in 1982's story "The Death of Captain Marvel."
The film's Starforce adds Lee Pace as warlord Ronan the Accuser, reprising his role from 2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy." Also reprising his "Guardians" role is Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer.
Elsewhere, Algenis Perez Soto is Att-lass, Rune Temte is Bron-Char and Gemma Chan is Minn-Erva.
They'll join Carol Danvers, the military pilot who wages a crucial battle within - between her human and superpowered Kree traits.Washington Post
