Captain Marvel Is the Most Powerful Hero the MCU Has Ever Seen

Captain Marvel Is the Most Powerful Hero the MCU Has Ever Seen

However, it certainly appears that the massive success of Warner Bros.' Wonder Woman has put to rest any idea that superheroine-led films are inherently box office poison.

Entertainment Weekly revealed the first images from Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" on Wednesday.

Although the Marvel Studios head didn't mention any of these movies by name, we should mention that Catwoman and Elektra came out in 2004 and 2005, respectively.

The focus is understandably on its titular character, with a number of shots of Brie Larson's Carol Danvers in and out of the classic costume, as well as Jude Law's mentor, Ben Mendelsohn's villain, Lashana Lynch's Maria Rambeau, and Nicky Fury sans iconic eyepatch.

They'll join Carol Danvers, the military pilot who wages a crucial battle within - between her human and superpowered Kree traits.

Though most people (us included) thought this meant a trailer, today Entertainment Weekly released a cover story about the movie, complete with our first official look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

"She can't help but be herself", Larson told EW. She's also quick to jump to things, which makes her awesome in battle because she's the first one out there and doesn't always wait for orders.

Director Anna Boden, the first female director for a Marvel film, said the film won't be a traditional origin story, which will feature younger versions of Marvel superheroes, like Nick Fury. "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", says Boden, who's the MCU's first female director. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.

Captain Marvel is set to be released in theaters on March 8, 2019. "But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity - and all of its messiness".

Captain Marvel is the only film standing in the way of the highly-anticipated Avengers 4, which will serve as the follow-up to Avengers: Infinity War.
