KXIP vs KKR Live Score

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.

While we still don't have a trailer - although one will surely arrive in the next few weeks - Entertainment Weekly have unveiled a proper first look at the movie which, while not quite living up to the "break the internet" hype, does give us a much better idea of what to expect from the movie.

Jackson posted the photo to his Instagram and said, "Wow, this Marvel de-aging thing is doper than I thought!"

The film will be an origin story of sorts for Carol Danvers, a human air force pilot who is imbued with alien powers after a freak accident.

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

Speaking of Earth, Captain Marvel takes place in the mid-'90s, long before Steve Rogers was defrosted or Tony Stark built his first suit.

For fans of the comic books, these similarities are comforting and inspire hope that the Captain Marvel movie will be as good as the comic books.

However, a couple of those EW exclusive promo images do suggest that her pre-powered life will be documented in some form, most likely via flashback. She's also quick to jump to things, which makes her unbelievable 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 flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", Boden said.

Set in the 1990s, "Captain Marvel" is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. "But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity - and all of its messiness".

Captain Marvel is set up to play an important role in next spring's yet-to-be-title fourth Avengers film.
