Brie Larson, EW post first look at 'Captain Marvel'

Brie Larson, EW post first look at 'Captain Marvel'

"Captain Marvel" will lead the cover of the next issue of Entertainment Weekly, which will include an exclusive first look at the intergalactic hero.

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. Check out the first photo of Brie as Captain Marvel (below) courtesy of EW and her IG page.

Captain Marvel, which is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, has always been anticipated anyway, but hype ramped up when the character's arrival was teased in the Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scene.

Shahid Kapoor and Mira Rajput welcome baby boy
The couple previously have a two-year-old daughter Misha, who recently celebrated her birthday with the whole extended family. Shahid, 37, said it is impossible for an actor to not be "self-oriented", but fatherhood taught him to be less self-absorbed.


According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege, who spoke to The Toronto Sun in April, Captain Marvel is a "heroine that you haven't seen before", one that can "kick a-" but is also "funny and sassy and talks back". The post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War showed Nick Fury paging Carol Danvers before he vanished at the hands of the Infinity Gauntlet. Finally, the Skrulls will appear in Captain Marvel, with Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One) playing their leader, Talos, who is presumably the Big Bad of the highly anticipated Brie Larson film.

With Marvel the next Marvel movie due to land in cinemas on 8 March 2019, it makes sense to start to hype train - and we wouldn't be surprised if we got a trailer before the end of September. Getting a glimpse at the film's aesthetic is one thing, but getting an understanding of the film's plotline from the pictures is an entirely different level of fandom - one we're here to encourage. She then leaves Earth to join a Kree military force led by an enigmatic commander played by Jude Law. It's directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Instead, it will pick up with Danvers already having her superpowers. That Rambeau was originally introduced as Captain Marvel in the comics, but she's since become heroes like Pulsar, Spectrum, and - her callsign in Captain Marvel - Photon. "He's younger than we've ever seen him (Jackson was digitally de-aged for the role), and perhaps most shocking of all, he's missing his signature eyepatch". But a new set of photos from Entertainment Weekly expose even more of the wild and familiar worlds Carol's going to find herself in, along with a few faces and curious Easter eggs that are only going to get fans more excited for the film. Will the lack of a proper origin story and build-up make a character that could outshine Hulk and Thor on-screen make Captain Marvel seem overpowered?
