First 'Captain Marvel' Trailer Officially Welcomes Brie Larson Into The MCU
| Last updated
The Capitan Marvel trailer is finally here.
Fans have been waiting to get their first glimpse of Brie Larson as the character since the movie began shooting back in May.
The origin movie, which is set to hit screens in March 2019, sees Larson as Carol Danvers - or Captain Marvel - where she'll be joined by Samuel L Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan and Lee Pace.
Although details are pretty scarce at the moment, Marvel Studios' president Kevin Feige has previously said Captain Marvel will be the most powerful character they've introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, which sounds pretty bloody exciting.
Speaking at the Doctor Strange screening back in May, he said: "It's very important to us that all of our heroes do not become silhouette-perfect cutout icons. All of the Marvel characters have flaws to them, all of them have a deep humanity to them.
"With Captain Marvel, she is as powerful a character as we've ever put in a movie. Her powers are off the charts, and when she's introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we've ever had. It's important, then, to counterbalance that with someone who feels real.
"She needs to have a humanity to tap into, and Brie can do that."
According to the movie's official synopsis: "Based on the Marvel comic character first appearing in 1968, the story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.
"Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe."

In the comics, Captain Marvel had a whole host of super powers, including flight, super-strength and energy blasts. She also had partial-Kree physiology - the Kree being an advanced alien race within the Marvel Comics universe.
