Move out of the way, Captain America, because Captain Marvel has arrived!
The superhero, who is Marvel’s most famous female star, has been waiting in the cinematic wings since 2013.
It was announced during San Diego Comic Con in 2016 that Room actress, Brie Larson, would be taking on the role of US Air Force officer, Carol Danvers, whose DNA was fused with Mar-Vell’s during an explosion, giving her superhuman powers.
And now, we have our first look at just how super she looks:

Gracing the cover of Entertainment Weekly, the Oscar winner describes the character as “not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection. She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”
Brie will be joined in the film by Fantastic Beasts actor, Jude Law, playing Mar-Vell; Rogue One star, Ben Mendelsohn, as Talos; and Samuel L. Jackson reprising his Avengers role as Nick Fury who paged Captain Marvel at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.
Captain Marvel will get her own chance in the intergalactic spotlight when her solo film premieres on the 8th of March 2019.
