Capt Marvel

Before the great snappening at the Infinity Gauntlet-clad index finger and thumb of Thanos, Earth’s superhero population used to be a lot higher. Even before the rise of Thanos however, heroes existed in the shadows. Iron Man may have been the first of a new generation to make themselves known, but Earth was protected by an extraordinary individual long before Tony Stark donned his armour. Someone…cosmic.

When threats from beyond our solar system came knocking on our door, Earth only had one (and only needed one) solution to an extraterrestrial civilisation looking to add our planet to their empire: Captain Marvel. While DC and Warner Bros. managed to earn rave reviews last year with Wonder Woman, Marvel and Disney have felt behind with the times for once on creating a female-led superhero movie in the genre that they revolutionised. Until now that is.

Here’s your first official look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel:

Capt Marvel

The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“She can’t help but be herself,” Larson said to EW of Carol Danvers and her mixed heritage, which happens to be half human and half Kree.

She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.

“This is not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection,” director Anna Boden added.

But what makes her special is just how human she is. She’s funny, but doesn’t always tell good jokes. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn’t always make the perfect decisions for herself. But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity — and all of its messiness.

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan, Lashana Lynch, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Algenis Pérez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Clark Gregg, Jude Law and Annette Bening. It’ll be hitting cinemas next year on March 8.

    Tbh, not really excited about this. Didn’t like the comic books to much, and there are way to many super hero movies coming out lately, that I just feel meh

      I agree with the amount of superhero movies coming out, but for me it is still a 10 year old journey that is coming to an end. After next years Avengers, I will probably tune out a bit from the superhero world.

      This is the same way I felt years ago with Dragon Ball. After Cell Saga, I couldn’t care anymore…

    “The future is female” – that part sticks out to me. Why? Because we saw similar marketing for Ghost Busters and a few other movies as well. Movies where critics of it would be labelled as “chauvinistic racist bigots”…I hope for a good movie and a good character, but I also hope that legitimate criticism is heard and that the movie is not another SJW vehicle that lacks substance. Wonder Woman was a good movie with a good, strong character who so happens to be female. I hope this is not the one where Marvel drops the ball.

      That’s just a stupid tagline on a magazine cover, obviously meant to cater to the feminist crowd.

          I hope Entertainment Weekly brought in the whole SJW tagline “The future is female”, and not Marvel. Because if it was Marvel, then yes, she is Captain SJW and I am not really up for too much political agendas in movies

            Ooooh yes I get you now. I didn’t know what EW meant lol

            You’re right, but i’m pretty sure that tagline is from the magazine not the studio. However that doesn’t indemnify them from having an agenda. The only reason they’re pushing this as supposedly the most powerful hero ever is to inspire all the bitter SJW’s out there, else they’ll start another riot and PR disaster. They need guidance.
