MCU: First Look At Captain Marvel Revealed

MCU: First Look At Captain Marvel Revealed

Hot on the heels of the first look at Brie Larson suited up as Captain Marvel, the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we have a whole batch of new photos from the Marvel Studios production.

Along with the Skrull race, we got our first look at their leader in the film, Ben Mendelsohn's Talos.

Rather than Iron Man and Captain America: The First Avenger, Brie Larson will already be familiar with her powers and know what she is set on Earth to do - to defeat the enemy knows as The Skrulls.

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.

Entertainment Weekly has also revealed that Captain Marvel won't be an origin story, or at least not a traditional one. The Infinity War post-credit scene did reveal Nick Fury "paging" Carol Danvers, but why did he wait until then?

Captain Marvel began filming in March in Los Angeles, California. Could this be a hint that Maria might get superpowers of her own, or is this just a little Easter egg for hardcore Marvel fans to pick up on?

Some old Marvel characters are also set to return including Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury who will make his ninth appearance in the MCU, but in a younger avatar.

The film also introduces one of Marvel comics' nastiest and most notorious baddies: the Skrulls.

"She's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander". Brie Larson or Carol Danvers will already have her powers since the beginning of the movie.

"This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", co-director Anna Boden told EW.

"She can't help but be herself", Larson tells EW.

Yesterday Marvel fans were treated to the first official look at Captain Marvel. Yesterday, the magazine released a teaser cover story and some images, but now we're finally getting some nitty gritty details on the MCU's first ever female-led superhero film. She sounds like the kind of woman that's going to, alongside Okoye, Shuri, and Hope van Dyne, lead the MCU into a fearless new world of female representation.

See more photos from the film, including shots of Law, Mendelsohn, a youthful Jackson and MCU veterans Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou, below.
