A MARVEL-ous Secret About Captain Marvel...

Written by

This coming March, audiences will finally get to experience one of the most buzzed-about new superhero films in years when Marvel Studios’ CAPTAIN MARVEL arrives in theaters. Following a massive year that saw the release of Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and the recent Ant-Man and the Wasp, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will enter 2019 by going backward on the timeline for an adventure set in the early 1990s - an era left previously-unexplored in the MCU. With the stakes high, the arrival of Academy Award-winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers signals the formal debut of what Marvel Chief Kevin Feige has famously noted as being a hero with powers that “are off the charts." While there's many secrets yet to be revealed about Captain Marvel and how the film connects to the forthcoming Avengers 4, there's one secret that I've been keeping that can now be revealed... I spent time on the set of CAPTAIN MARVEL.

Captain Marvel Set Visit

Unfortunately for today, I can't tell you much of anything about what I was doing, who I was with or what I saw. What I can say is that simply being able to admit that I was there for filming is a cool thing - and it's a secret that I've kept for over eight months. Only today did Marvel Studios lift that embargo, and it comes on the heels of the newly-released second trailer for the film. As for the photo above, let's just say that I'm in the back row, pictured alongside 24 ladies with whom I've worked before. If you're big into the behind-the-scenes action when it comes to Marvel Studios, then you know that the one guy in the photo that isn't me is John M. Pisani, unit publicist, front-and-center.

Look for more from the set of CAPTAIN MARVEL to be revealed in the weeks and months ahead both here at The Rock Father™ Magazine and over at The Pop Insider.
