Perhaps most noteworthy will be the return of Clark Gregg's Agent Phil Coulson, who was the glue of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's early films, popping up for small roles in Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Thor and The Avengers - where the character died (only to be revived to headline ABC's Agents of SHIELD).

Marvel also revealed Monday that two Guardians of the Galaxy actors will be reprising their roles from the 2014 film. In fact, all three of these characters are dead in the current Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Captain Marvel is a prequel set in the '90s. Korath was killed by Drax the Destroyer during Guardians of the Galaxy's climactic conflict, while Ronan perished soon after when the Guardians redirected the energy of the Orb (a.k.a. the Power Infinity Stone) back at the Kree fanatic. Hounsou played his subordinate, Korath. The Skrulls have the ability to shapeshift, so many are theorizing that Captain Marvel will reveal some heretofore unknown secrets about the MCU from the 90s.

In the Marvel Comics, the Kree race is in a war with the Skrulls, the latter of which are the villains of Captain Marvel.

The announcement also contains the name of a few more previously unannounced cast members whose roles are less easy to figure out: Algenis Perez Soto, who starred in 2008's Sugar; Rune Temte, who appeared in 2016's Eddie the Eagle; and McKenna Grace, seen past year as the young Tonya Harding in I, Tonya.

Captain Marvel is set to open March 8, 2019. The production will also shoot on location in Fresno, California, as well as locations in Louisiana, including Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

These performers join Brie Larson, who stars in the title role of Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Jackson, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Jude Law as Walter Lawson/Mar-Vell, and Ben Mendelsohn and Lashana Lynch as as-yet undisclosed characters.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, the filmmakers behind Half Nelson and Mississippi Grind, are directing Captain Marvel, while the credited screenwriters include Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (GLOW), and Boden and Fleck. Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patty Whitcher and Stan Lee are executive producers, with Lars Winther serving as co-producer/first assistant director and David Grant serving as co-producer.
