Following a Twitter conversation late last night, EW and Marvel have revealed the first official photos out of the 21st movie in the MCU, Captain Marvel. 10 years ago, no one could have imagined that Marvel would have created such a cinematic juggernaut as the MCU, yet 21 movies later the Studio is showing no signs of slowing. Now, the first official look at the next adventure in the MCU, Captain Marvel has arrived, and all signs point to yet another Marvel success.
The images, released on EW, show Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), A De-Aged Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson), and warriors of the Kree including Starforce Leader (Jude Law), Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan), and returning faces from Guardians of the Galaxy, Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Korath (Djimon Honsou).
Up first is a beautiful shot of Carol Danvers looking fierce in her iconic red and blue outfit. This image alone puts many fans’ hearts at ease, as set photos from earlier this years made it appear as though she would be sporting a green and blue outfit instead.
The next image reveals the legendary Starforce, comprised of Carol, Ronan, Att-Lass, Korath, Bron-Char, and Minn-Erva. The team will be led by Jude Law’s mysterious Leader of Starforce, whom many fans speculate to be Mar-Vell himself, though it has yet to be confirmed.
The next image depicts what appears to be a training session between the Leader of Starforce and Carol. While not much is directly revealed in the image, it is at least a pleasing shot.
Following suit is arguably the most exciting reveal of them all, this magnificent shot of the skrulls arriving on earth. not only does this image display Ben Mendelsohn’s Talos in his green-skinned glory, but it also reveals a perfect adaptation of the species from the comics.
The most notable aspect of the Skrulls is their ability to transform into a copy of anyone, an ability which is on full display in the next image. Ben Mendelsohn, now looking like his usual self, is on set with Directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden.
The next image showcases Starforce’s mysterious leader, alongside Guardians of the Galaxy alum Ronan. While he was the villain in his last film, and kind of died, he will be shown in a more heroic light this time around.
This Image confirms something fans have already knew, that Captain Marvel will be set in the 1990’s. Sporting a shield hat, Carol here is a pair of aviators away from the typical Marvel hero in disguise outfit.
Speaking of the 90’s, the next image reveals Samuel L. Jackson’s De-Aged, Two-Eyed Nick Fury. Captain Marvel will show fans just how Fury lost his eye and worked his way up the ranks of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Up next is an Image of Danvers before she goes intergalactic. As an Air Force Pilot, she was already a capable pilot before her encounter with the Kree. Interestingly, Larson actually went to Air Force experts to prepare for the film.
The final image of this batch is of Danver’s friend Maria Rambeau, who will be portrayed by Lashana Lynch. Rambeau is also an Air Force Pilot.
Also revealed today is this week’s EW cover.
While fans were hoping for a trailer, rumors have spread that the first teasers will drop sometime in the next few weeks.
Captain Marvel hits theatres on March 6, 2019, and stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Lee Pace, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn.
