It’s a big day for those who have been impatiently awaiting the arrival of Captain Marvel. Not only has the first image of star Brie Larson in her superhero costume arrived, but with it a slew of new information and photos from the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe film.
The new looks at the film, which come directly from Entertainment Weekly, where you can see all 10 photos, are the first we’ve seen from Larson’s superhero debut, and they don’t disappoint. Not only can she be seen in her costume as the titular Captain Marvel–in an image featuring far less Photoshopping than the cover–but several other details are given away.
First and foremost, not only is Nick Fury back, but he has both of his eyes. As the movie is set in the 1990s, a younger version of the director of SHIELD will be introduced, long before he starts wearing his signature eye patch. Perhaps the movie will actually show how he loses his eye?
Also seen in the photos are the introduction of the Skrull alien race. In one image, they are walking out of the ocean, led by Talos (Ben Mendelsohn). According to a caption from EW, the Skrulls are among the “nastiest and most notorious baddies” in all of Marvel comics. Take that, Thanos.
The last photo we want to highlight is the first look at Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). As EW explains it, Maria is one of Carol Danvers’ oldest friends and a fellow Air Force pilot, who flies under the call sign Photon. She’s also a single mother to a young daughter, which is where things get interesting. In the comics, Maria’s daughter is Monica, who ends up with superpowers and grows up to become an Avenger.
Monica has been known as Photon, but also Captain Marvel for a time. She’s currently known as Spectrum. As Marvel plots out phase four of the MCU, it will be interesting to see if the introduction of Maria opens the door for Monica to become a big part of the franchise’s future.
You can see the rest of the photos over at Entertainment Weekly. Captain Marvel is in theaters on March 8, 2019.
