"I think there are a lot of reasons, not the least of which was fighting for many years the erroneous notion that audiences did not want to see a female-led hero [film] because of a slew of films 15 years ago that didn't work".

Starring Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson, Captain Marvel marks the first time that an MCU film will star a female character in the lead role.

The movie is expected to reveal how Fury and Captain Marvel meet.

It shows Larson in her red, blue and gold costume, with her hair blowing backwards. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth. His future boss Ronan (Lee Pace) is also part of Captain Marvel, seen in two separate images (at the end). "This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", she told EW; Larson's quotes also emphasize that Captain Marvel "can be a little invasive and in your face".

Are you excited to see Carol Danvers make her MCU debut? The character was teased in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, and she will also be part of the as-yet untitled Avengers 4 in May 2019.

"She can't help but be herself", Larson told EW. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn't always make the ideal decisions for herself.

Marvel will dole them out slowly, of course, but especially because the third "Avengers" film ended on such a cliffhanger this summer, the geek Internet is hungry to know what "Captain Marvel" holds when it comes out in March, before we finally get the fourth "Avengers".

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.

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.
