I like the idea. Throw in the Wrecking Crew as villains and Rick Jones as her sidekick and you’ve got yourself a movie.

The US Air Force and a Kree scout ship named Sentry are both looking for the same lost Asgardian power source, the Norn Stones, but a dishonest construction/salvage crew gets to them first.

When the Kree Sentry Captain Mar-Vell is ordered to destroy Earth he refuses. He disables the bomb’s power supply, the Nega Bands, and runs away to meet Carol Danvers.

I would keep the outer space stuff to a minimum, maybe a climactic scene where she flies off into orbit to punch a spaceship.

With the mention of Carol by Feige and others, I honestly think that we’ll see a CAPTAIN MARVEL movie in the cards after GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY sets up some of the important events involving the Kree. It appears from what little info is out there that Ronan the Accuser and his forces (I think Korath is working with him too?) are looking for items like the Infinity Stones, and there have been hints that he might even be working with Thanos. Presumably, his conflicts with Peter Quill will alert him and the Kree to the existence and nature of Earth, making the planet a Kree target.

I could see Ronan in the Yon-Rogg role if he survives, with Lee Pace the sort, like Tom Hiddleston to be used in multiple films (otherwise, there’s always Yon-Rogg!). As far as the Nega-Bands are concerned, they need not even be used — didn’t “Earth’s Mightiest Heroes” have Mar-Vell empower Carol accidentally via some sort of other Kree device or something? Either way, I could see Carol as a character involved in first response to the Kree incursion/invasion (either as straight military, or the NASA security role if you want to work SWORD elements in) and end up fighting Kree fire with Kree fire.

I still suspect that part of the delay on introducing some of the new heroes in that the main Phase 1 actors are coming to the end of the their contracts. You can renegotiate “at least show up for AVENGERS films!” like they did with Robert Downey Jr., but staggering new big properties (and a film with the name CAPTAIN MARVEL is a big Marvel property by default) until you’re out of THOR and CAPTAIN AMERICA tentpoles might be a big part of it. Even having non-powered Carol Danvers show up in another film counts against a contract, remember, and costs them when they know that she’ll end up punching spaceships in another film or so…

Why do some people act like a Captain Marvel would automatically block a Black Widow movie? It’s not either/or. I’d personally love to watch both.
Also, while I love Monica Rambeau, I have to admit that Carol Danvers is a more identifiable character. Plus, her power set seem more feasible (and cheaper) as far as special effects go.
