The full cast list of Captain Marvel has been revealed along with the first synopsis and some additional production details!

Filming for Captain Marvel has been underway for some time, but Marvel waited until just recently to make an official announcement with a first synopsis and an official cast list that included both familiar and unexpected names.

In addition to Brie Larson as Carol DanversSamuel L. Jackson will return as Nick Fury in the March 8, 2019 release. Lee Pace (Ronan the Accuser), Djimon Hounsou (Korath the Pursuer), and Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson) are also coming back.

You might remember Ronan and Korath from James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Coulson appeared in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor, and The Avengers, and has starred in ABC TV's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. since its 2013 debut.
