We’re so, so happy to have a wealth of images from the upcoming Marvel Studios release,
This will be the first female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe film, and Oscar-winning actress
Brie Larson will be playing Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel.
Aside from the first look image (which is actually the cover of the upcoming preview issue), Entertainment Weekly also shared 10 new photos featuring behind the scenes moments, first looks at
Jude Law as Mar-Vell, the return of Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, a glimpse of Ben Mendelsohn, and our first freaking MCU Skrulls.
The film sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She’s left her earthly life behind to join the elite military team Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. (Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck describe Starforce as the SEAL Team Six of space.) Its members include Carol, Korath (Djimon Hounsou, returning from Guardians of the Galaxy), and Minn-Erva (Crazy Rich Asians’ Gemma Chan).

On Earth, Mendelsohn’s Talos goes undercover as a human working within S.H.I.E.L.D. (seen here with directors Fleck and Boden). “It’s not easy being green,” Mendelsohn quips

Jude Law plays the commander of Starforce, who views Carol as a mentee and pet project. “These extraordinary powers she has, he sees them as something of a blessing and something that she has to learn how to control,” Law says. “That’s a motif throughout the piece, the element of learning to control one’s emotions and to use your powers wisely.”
Marvel Studios’ CAPTAIN MARVEL
L to R: Leader of Starforce (Jude Law), Ronan (Lee Pace), Korath (Djimon Hounsou), Att-Lass (Algenis Perez Soto), Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), Bron-Char (Rune Temte) and Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan)
Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, one of Carol’s oldest friends. She’s a top-notch Air Force pilot with the call sign “Photon,” and she’s also a single mother to a young daughter.
Even before she became Captain Marvel, Carol was an accomplished Air Force pilot, and Larson spent time with actual pilots for research.
Captain Marvel marks Samuel L. Jackson’s ninth appearance as Nick Fury, but this Nick is a lowly S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey (who hasn’t yet met any superheroes). He’s younger than we’ve ever seen him (Jackson was digitally de-aged for the role), and perhaps most shocking of all, he’s missing his signature eyepatch.
WE CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF CAROL’S NIN SHIRT!
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 9th, 2019.
