Carol Danvers' Origin to Change in MCU

In a recent interview, writer Nicole Perlman said that they will be changing Carol Danvers' origin story in the Captain Marvel movie to remove similarities to Green Lantern and make her more her own character. In the comics, Carol got her powers when Kree alien warrior Mar-Vell (the original Captain Marvel created by Marvel) shielded her from an exploding Kree device, fusing his DNA onto hers.
But here’s the thing, if you were just going to do a straight adaptation of the comics, her origin story is very similar to Green Lantern. And obviously, that’s not what we want to do. There’s a lot of reinvention that needs to happen. And also, she’s her own person and she’s a great character.
