The Marvel train cannot be stopped! "Black Panther" just became the top-grossing superhero movie in U.S. history, as "Avengers: Infinity War" breaks pre-sale records ahead of its April release.

And now Marvel Studios has announced the start of principal photography for Brie Larson's "Captain Marvel" movie.

"Captain Marvel," opening March 8 of 2019, is basing production in the greater Los Angeles area. Filming is also planned in Fresno, CA, and locations in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, Louisiana.

Here's more on the film's plot:

"Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, 'Captain Marvel' is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

The photo above shows Brie Larson with Brigadier General Jeannie Leavitt, 57th Wing Commander, on a recent trip to Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada to do research for the character.

In addition to Larson, the film also stars Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
