First look at Captain Marvel in her iconic red-and-blue suit

Kevin Feige explains WHY Captain Marvel is set in the 90s  Captain Marvel deep dive

Following the first set of leaked photos that surfaced online earlier this year, Entertainment Weekly has chose to come through today and share the first official look at the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. But first, we have to see her origin story.

On Wednesday, fans got their first look of Brie Larson in costume as Captain Marvel.

"This is not a superhero who's ideal or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", says Boden, who's the MCU's first female director. We hypothesized they could do this based on comic book lore and set photos before, but now we know it's real.

Kevin Feige serves as producer on "Captain Marvel" with Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patty Whitcher and Stan Lee all serving as executive producers.

Captain Marvel's debut is highly anticipated given the events of Avengers: Infinity War. The film will bridge the gaps between Infinity War and Infinity War 2 (or whatever it may be called) as Captain Marvel was teased by the former's after credits scene. She gains superhuman strength, endurance, stamina and durability, as well as the ability to fly, and fire energy bursts from her hands.

Larson will play the titular badass in her upcoming standalone film, the first in the MCU to be headlined by a female superhero. Perhaps even more than we've seen from the Guardians of the Galaxy, Carol's a hero of the stars, and the film will show us significant glimpses of her life as a Kree soldier working with a team composed of some members from Marvel's Starforce. We're hoping the film touches on that as well.

We already know that Captain Marvel is set in the 90s and this makes it the second period film in MCU after Captain America: The First Avenger. Jude Law (Mar-vell) is the leader of the Kree military squad, Starforce, which Larson eventually joins. She sounds like the kind of woman that's going to, alongside Okoye, Shuri, and Hope van Dyne, lead the MCU into a fearless new world of female representation. We're excited to see where the MCU and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck go with this one, and some new photos released today give us a decent idea. It will include a younger Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) - with use of both of his eyes.

Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers.
