Entertainment Weekly has released 10 new HD stills from the upcoming Captain Marvel movie, the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The cover was released first and 10 stills quickly followed. The images are shown below:
The images show our second official look at Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel after the Entertainment Weekly cover was released earlier today. We also see Larson’s Danvers as a member of Starforce (in the green and black suit as opposed to the red and blue) alongside Ronan the Accuser (played by Lee Pace), Mar-Vell (leader of the Starforce and played by Jude Law), and Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou). Minn-Erva (played by Gemma Chan) is also a member of Starforce.
Ronan played the villain in Guardians of the Galaxy but will be fighting alongside Captain Marvel in this film. Korath makes a return from Guardians as well. Samuel L. Jackson is reprising his role as Nick Fury and Ben Mendelsohn plays Talos, the leader of the shape-shifting aliens, the Skrulls. Lashana Lynch plays Maria “Photon” Rambeau, one of Carol Danvers “oldest friends” who serves next to Danvers in the US Air Force.
Captain Marvel takes place during the 1990s, explaining why clothes and cars in the film will look slightly dated. And, notably, the film takes place before Nick Fury loses an eye.
The film will take place after Danvers has gotten her powers, a break from the usual superhero origin story. According to Law, Mar-Vell will take Danvers under his wing:
These extraordinary powers she has, he sees them as something of a blessing and something that she has to learn how to control…That’s a motif throughout the piece, the element of learning to control one’s emotions and to use your powers wisely.
Captain Marvel will be the first female-led MCU installment, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. Screenwriters include Boden, Fleck, Liz Flahive, Meg Lefauve, Carly Mensch, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Captain Marvel- Captain Marvel gets caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
Captain Marvel is set to release in theaters on March 8, 2019.
