On Wednesday, Entertainment Weekly revealed the official first look at Brie Larson in her full-on Captain Marvel regalia and while it doesn't feature the character's beloved mohawk, it looks as though Carol Danvers has leapt right off the page. Captain Marvel will also be scored by Pinar Toprak (Krypton), marking the first time a major comic book movie has been scored by a woman.
This afternoon, EW provided the world with our first look at Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson's portrayal of Captain Marvel.
Speaking of Earth, Captain Marvel takes place in the mid-'90s, long before Steve Rogers was defrosted or Tony Stark built his first suit.
The day finally arrived where Marvel Studios unveiled new photos and information about Captain Marvel, and while fans are piecing together theories and trying to connect it to the Avengers franchise, there's one sly Easter egg you might not have noticed.
This tease brings to mind two obvious possibilities, the first being news related to the upcoming Captain Marvel film and the second being related to a spoiler from Avengers: Infinity War. As such, we know relatively little about this incarnation of the character, though Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has previously called her power "off the charts...by far the strongest character we've ever had". It's already September, and the film will premiere on March 8th in the US. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more risky by their shape-shifting abilities. "But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw".
"This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", added co-director Anna Boden.
Marvel Studios has always been good about revering older versions of their superheroes in their movies.
A set of newly released images from the Captain Marvel reveals that, in her days as a fighter pilot, Carol Danvers flew alongside a pilot named Maria Rambeau, played in the film by Lashana Lynch. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn't always make the ideal decisions for herself.
