Despite a rocky road in development and enduring numerous delays, it looks like filming on Captain Marvel is a wrap! Brie Larson, who stars as the titular heroine, recently tweeted an image featuring a signed Captain Marvel clapperboard atop a calendar of June/July with a crossed out 6 July bearing the text “Last Day”.

This was previously teased by director Ryan Fleck’s Instagram post the day before, mentioning that July 6 was Day 75 of 75.
Marvel has been keeping Captain Marvel on the down-low, although they have revealed that it is set in the 90s, exploring the origins of how Danvers becomes Captain Marvel in the midst of an intergalactic conflict between Earth and alien worlds. Eagle-eyed fans have spotted Brie Larson suited up as Captain Marvel on set, but in an uncharacteristic green-and-black suit as opposed to the classic red-and-blue.
Helmed by directing duo Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, the rest of the cast comprises of Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, and Gemma Chan, with Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg reprising their roles as Nick Fury and Phil Coulson respectively.
This is a great milestone after about 6 months of filming, especially since its release date was postponed twice from July 2018 to March 8, 2019 in the U.S. to make way for Spider-man: Homecoming and Ant-Man and the Wasp films. Hopefully there won’t be any more delays, as many are eager for the first MCU film that breaks barriers and features a leading female superhero.
