First photos of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel released

It's been more than a year since Brie Larson was announced as the title hero of Captain Marvel, and until yesterday it was starting to feel like we'd never get any details about the film itself, even as the release date is fast approaching.

MARVEL has revealed the first proper look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

Entertainment Weekly shared a first look at its newest hero, Captain Marvel.

It shows Larson in her red, blue and gold costume, with her hair blowing backwards.

"Captain Marvel" marks the first time a woman will be the headlining superhero of a Marvel movie.

For starters, the Fury of "Captain Marvel's" 1990s setting is obviously younger, so Jackson was digitally de-aged for the role, according to EW. Tell us your thoughts in the comments section and don't forget to subscribe to CBR for more MCU content!

Warning: This post contains potential spoilers for Captain Marvel! Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth. Skrulls are a formidable enemy shapeshifting alien race in the Marvel comics and this is the first time they have popped up in the MCU.

Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.

Co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind), Captain Marvel also stars Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson as well as Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, Mckenna Grace, Robert Kazinsky, Annette Bening, Vik Sahay, Colin Ford, and Chuku Modu. In the piece, Law teases his character as a mentor to Brie Larson's Carol Danvers. "She is thrown into many a situation in this movie that she's never been a part of, never seen, never experienced - and she just learns it, immediately".

That brings us to Danvers' Starforce squad, which aside from featuring Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, has a big surprise: Djimon Hounsou's Korath, who was introduced as one of the bad guys in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy.
