Entertainment Weekly has unleashed the first official images from Captain Marvel, the 1990s-set Marvel Cinematic Universe that will star Brie Larson as the eponymous fighter-pilot-turned-superhero. You can clap eyes on the snaps right here.
Let’s crack straight on with the pictures, then. Here’s our best look yet at Larson’s Carol Danvers in her snazzy super suit…
Here’s Carol with Jude Law, who’s playing “the commander of Starforce, who views Carol as a mentee and pet project.” When the film begins, Carol already has her powers and is living in space among an elite military group named Starforce.
Here’s Samuel L. Jackson as young Nick Fury, who is, at this stage, “a lowly S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey (who hasn’t yet met any superheroes).” And look, he still has both eyes!
Here’s Carol venturing back to Earth, donning a S.H.I.E.L.D. cap and a Nine Inch Nails T-shirt, within what looks like some sort of archive.
Here’s a load of Skrulls, the shape-shifting alien nasties that will be the main baddies in the flick. In this image, it looks like they’re trying to look as cool as the sea-paddling Stormtroopers from the Rogue One promo materials.
Here’s Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, who’s described as “one of Carol’s oldest friends”, “a top-notch Air Force pilot” and also “a single mother to a young daughter.”
Here’s Carol emerging from a jet, in what looks like her pre-superhero pilot days. Is this a flashback where we see her gain her powers?
Here’s Ben Mendelsohn as a Skrull, disguised as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, chatting to directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.
Boden and Law on set with Lee Pace, who reprises his role as the Kree fanatic Ronan The Accuser from Guardians Of The Galaxy. In the comics, the Kree and the Skrulls are long-term enemies.
And here’s Carol, leading a Starforce unit into what looks like a confrontation with Ronan. Among Carol’s allies here are Gemma Chan’s Minn-Evra and Djimon Hounsou’s Korath (the latter of which ends up working for Ronan in Guardians.
And finally, here’s the EW cover that will house a big article about the film. The issue will hit store shelves on Friday.
Captain Marvel has a UK release date of March 8th 2019. It will be followed in the MCU release schedule by Avengers 4, on April 26th 2019, which will see Carol Danvers answering Nick Fury’s call and fighting Thanos alongside Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
We’ll bring you more news as we hear it.
