First Official Look at Brie Larson in 'Captain Marvel' Costume

Skrulls are a formidable enemy shapeshifting alien race in the Marvel comics and this is the first time they have popped up in the MCU.

To make a long story short, Larson as Carol Danvers will grace the cover of the magazine's new issue out this week, and to celebrate, EW released the cover as well as some quotes from co-director Anna Boden and Larson herself.

"With [Ant-Man and The Wasp] and now with Captain Marvel and many movies to be announced in the near future, I'm anxious for the time where it's not a novelty that there is a female-led superhero movie, but it is a norm", said Feige in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.

The studio is releasing its first female-driven superhero film Captain Marvel next year, which sees Brie Larson take on the iconic character.

But why did the actress, who is known mostly for dramatic works like Room, decide that she wanted to join the MCU as Captain Marvel?

In the comics, Mar-Vell is responsible for Carol Danvers getting her powers, but what they do in the MCU remains to be seen.

Larson was, of course, swayed in the end: "Just seeing a character who says how she feels and says what's on her mind and doesn't let people stand in her way is incredibly empowering".

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". She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes. But never to be forgotten is Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and the Fury we see in "Captain Marvel" isn't one were familiar with.

Keen-eyed observers will also recognise Djimon Hounsou among the Starfleet crew as Korath and Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser - both have previously appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Captain Marvel will suit up in her own solo movie next March, and in the sequel to "Avengers: Infinity War" next May.
