We are now firmly entrenched in the early stages of Marvel's Phase 3 slate of films, but the success of the studio lies in its ability to keep looking forward. The next few years will introduce plenty of important new elements into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but arguably nothing will be more important than Brie Larson's Captain Marvel movie. The film is currently slated for a Spring 2019 release, and according to Kevin Feige, it should begin production next February if everything goes according to plan. Feige explained:
Kevin Feige's recent comments to Collider definitely give us a much stronger sense of Marvel's timeline moving into the next few years. With the culmination of the Thanos arc coming up in 2018 when Infinity War finally debuts, Marvel will press forward with production of Ant-Man and The Wasp in June 2017, Avengers 4 (we still don't know its title because it's a spoiler for Infinity War) in August 2017. Once the studio has taken care of those productions, Captain Marvel will begin filming in February 2018.
We still have quite a while until Brie Larson's Carol Danvers finally gets to take center stage in her solo movie, but that does not mean that she will not become a presence in the Marvel Cinematic Universe very soon. Larson's IMDB page states that the Room star is currently in the process of filming Infinity War (in which she will likely make her MCU debut), and the next project on her docket after that is Captain Marvel.
I think it is safe to say that fans will wait patiently to see a Captain Marvel film finally materialize in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Aside from the fact that it will properly introduce Carol Danvers AND Brie Larson into the MCU after her smaller Infinity War role, Captain Marvel represents an important moment for Marvel because it is the first female-fronted superhero movie in the history of the Marvel franchise. Wonder Woman will have already paved the way for Captain Marvel with the release of Patty Jenkins' DC adventure this summer, so getting Captain Marvel right is more important than getting it done quickly.
Brie Larson will make her grand debut as Carol Danvers when The Avengers: Infinity War hits theaters next year on May 4, 2018. Her solo movie will premiere the following year on March 8, 2019.
