Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has revealed the timeline for when the key personnel for 2019's Captain Marvel will be announced.

"I think we’ll be announcing a filmmaker in the next month or two, and probably some cast members later in the summer, at the end of the summer," Feige told Fandango.

Some of those announcements could occur at Comic-Con International: San Diego, which takes place July 21-24; however, Marvel has notably diminished its presence at the annual convention in recent years, opting for outside events such as the bi-annual D23 Expo. The next D23 Expo, however, isn't scheduled until July 14-16, 2017.

When asked about the plot of the Captain Marvel movie, Feige framed it as an origin story, "about Carol Danvers and that journey to being Captain Marvel."

Captain Marvel is scheduled for release March 8, 2019.
