Brie Larson powers up in first official look at Captain Marvel

What exactly will be revealed later today for Captain Marvel

What exactly will be revealed later today for Captain Marvel

As we recently learned, the movie will forgo the traditional superhero origin story and begin with Carol Danvers already having her super powers, having left behind Earth for a career in Starforce.

Back in 2014, Marvel announced its Phase Three slate, and now we are nearly half way there coming up fast on the final films. In comic books, Maria Rambeau is actually Monica's mother's name - which means its likely no coincidence that Entertainment Weekly describes Maria as having a young daughter.

Captain Marvel leads the cover of Entertainment Weekly's new issue, with an exclusive first look at Brie Larson's Air-Force-pilot-turned-intergalactic-hero. "Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe". Since this is set in the 90s, Captain Marvel has some flexibility in bringing back certain characters and Ronan is one of them.

Avengers: Infinity War ended with the most tantalizing of teases for Marvel's next cinematic superhero, Captain Marvel. Now, another batch of photos provides us with additional looks at Carol Danvers, as well as quite a few of the surrounding players who are going to be featured in Captain Marvel, including the Skrulls and a young Nick Fury. It even features a Nick Fury who's got two good eyes and a desk job at SHIELD. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more unsafe by their shape-shifting abilities.

We see Ben Mendelsohn's Talos in his natural green and his shapeshifted human form - both equally intimidating visages for the Skrull leader since his human alter-ego will be undercover at S.H.I.E.L.D. "But what makes her special is just how human she is".

Captain Marvel marks a first for the franchise that is long overdue. We could be looking at a movie along the lines of Guardians of the Galaxy that blows us all away when it hits theaters. Sadly, the first trailer for the movie that we were expecting on Wednesday never arrived, but we still got a sneak peek of what's to come.
