Captain Marvel: 9 MCU Characters Who Could Appear

Which familiar faces could turn up in the 90s?

Marvel Studios

Next March, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will finally get to meet Brie Larson's Captain Marvel in her own movie, the last stop before the fourth Avengers film closes the book on this first era of this massive franchise.

So far, Marvel is keeping its cards close to its chest when it comes to the finer details of the film's plot, which will primarily be set in the 1990s, with a young Carol Danvers finding her world upended as she gets pulled into a war between the Kree and the Skrulls. And thanks to the film's placement in a decade the franchise hasn't really explored yet, she'll be meeting a whole slew of familiar faces along the way, including a two-eyed Nick Fury, a fresh-faced Phil Coulson, and the Kree combo of Korath and Ronan.

By turning the clock back, Captain Marvel has the chance to give us even more surprise appearances from heroes and villains alike that we've already met, tying together the mythology of the universe all the more by having their younger versions show up in ways that fit the timeline as we know it.
