Yesterday, Brie Larson and Entertainment Weekly came together on Twitter to tease something "Marvel-ous", and today they teamed-up once more to release the first look at Marvel Studios' next superhero blockbuster (its first with a female lead), Captain Marvel. "Here's your exclusive first look at @BrieLarson as @CaptainMarvel, the galaxy's newest - and most powerful - star", Entertainment Weekly introduced the next big name in the MCU.
Sending Marvel fans into an excitable frenzy, Brie sent a tweet to Entertainment Weekly that told us everything we needed to know. Carol Danvers will already have her powers and already be working for Space Force Starforce when the movie kicks in.
What are the Kree, you may ask?
Now there's the costume we were looking for! Yon-Rogg attempted to assassinate Mar-Vell, but ended up killing Dr. Walter Lawson instead. They're most famous for creating the Inhumans and for their war with the Skrull that almost decimated Earth. Ben Mendelson will be playing the Skrull leader Talos.
Seems like a natural direction to take things, considering Carol will be getting her powers in a freak accident (assuming they stick relatively close to the comic book canon, but we'll see). Computer, show me a closer look at Law and Larson serving face. Or are they keeping his name under wraps until closer to the film because his character is a spoiler? But before that, the audience will get to watch her standalone film in March 2019. We'll also be seeing Clark Gregg's Coulson and Cobie Smulder's Maria Hill, since you can't really have SHIELD without our favorite agents. In fact, he plays a pivotal role in how Carol Danvers obtains her powers. We have to wait until "Avengers 4" next summer to see the aftermath of all that.
When Ant-Man and the Wasp debuted in July, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige said to not expect the trailer to appear as "there's still a few months on it".
What else is there to tell about Carol?
"What makes her special is just how human she is", Boden says.
Here we see Carol alongside her fellow Starforce soldiers, including Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan of Crazy Rich Asians) and, yes, Korath the Pursuer, the villain played by Djimon Hounsou in Guardians of the Galaxy. Rambeau is a single mom with a daughter, and we stan a cool, confident, self-sufficient USAF fox who makes sacrifices daily for the good of country and the future of her little girl while supporting her fellow women in the armed services.
