Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly our first official look (and details) on Captain Marvel have arrived, giving us our best look yet at the superheroine and the villains she’ll be facing down.
While we’ve seen a few set photos, nothing compares to seeing it all the way it’s intended to be shown on the screen. In this case, things are looking amazing. We get our first look at Captain Marvel herself suited up and ready for ass-kicking action, while we also get a look at her “Star Force” team, which includes Jude Law’s Mar-Vell. As revealed in EW’s story, this isn’t going to be a traditional origin story.Instead, the film will kick off with Carol Danvers already having her powers and using them as part of a galactic police force. The Skrull arrival on earth brings her back to the planet to battle it out with Ben Mendelsohn Skrull leader, Talos.
Because the film takes place in the 90s (before Iron Man is around or Captain America has been thawed out), we’ll get the chance to see some iconic Marvel characters when they were younger. This includes Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury (looking great with BOTH eyes), and even the villainous Ronan The Destroyer from Guardians of the Galaxy.
There’s a lot of cool things going on here and despite just being a handful of images, I’m feeling the hype kick in already. I’m loving the look of the outfit, seeing some of these characters return, and I’m eager to see how the Skrulls will play out, not only in this film, but the future of the MCU.
Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8, 2019 and hopefully a trailer isn’t too far behind.
