CAPTAIN MARVEL: First Official Photos Reveal New Costume and More

See the first official photo of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel costume. After tons of behind-the-scenes photos, Marvel has released the first official look at the Captain Marvel costume. Entertainment
Weekly has a cover story on the upcoming MCU movie and includes a cover with the newest MCU hero.

Captain Marvel is coming next summer and is the 21st film in the MCU. It's the first to star a solo female superhero. Just like "Black Panther" has a black lead and black director, "Captain Marvel" stars a female lead and a female director.

Over the years Marvel has collected a range of female heroes but never as a lead. Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel is described as a "part-Kree, part-human pilot" and first appeared in the comics back in 1968.

“She can’t help but be herself,” Larson tells EW. “She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”

The first set photos showed her in an all-green costume. This shows her in the classic red-blue and gold costume from the comics. The article points out that the movie will show her as a member of the Kree

Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has said that Captain Marvel is the most powerful superhero in the Marvel Universe and we see her hands glowing with energy.

“This is not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection,” says Anna Boden, who’s the MCU’s first female director. “But what makes her special is just how human she is. She’s funny but doesn’t always tell good jokes. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn’t always make the perfect decisions for herself. But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity — and all of its messiness.”

Captain Marvel marks Samuel L. Jackson’s ninth appearance as Nick Fury, but this Nick is a lowly S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey (who hasn’t yet met any superheroes). He’s younger than we’ve ever seen him (Jackson was digitally de-aged for the role), and perhaps most shocking of all, he’s missing his signature eyepatch.

Jude Law plays the commander of Starforce, who views Carol as a mentee and pet project. "These extraordinary powers she has, he sees them as something of a blessing and something that she has to learn how to control," Law says. "That’s a motif throughout the piece, the element of learning to control one’s emotions and to use your powers wisely."

Back on Earth, the 1990s are in full swing. Expect plenty of era-appropriate references - and fashion, judging by Carol’s Nine Inch Nails T-shirt

The film also introduces one of Marvel comics’ nastiest and most notorious baddies: the Skrulls. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader, Talos, seen here in all his bright-green glory. But he’s got another face, too…
As any Marvel comics fan knows, the Skrulls are especially dangerous because of their unparalleled ability to shape-shift. On Earth, Mendelsohn’s Talos goes undercover as a human working within S.H.I.E.L.D. (seen here with directors Fleck and Boden). "It’s not easy being green," Mendelsohn quips.

Even before she became Captain Marvel, Carol was an accomplished Air Force pilot, and Larson spent time with actual pilots for research.

MCU fans have met the Kree race before in Guardians of the Galaxy, and two familiar faces - Hounsou’s Korath and Lee Pace’s Ronan the Accuser (pictured here) - will appear in Captain Marvel. In Guardians, Ronan is an outcast with extremist views, but here, he’s still a high-ranking member of Kree society.

The film sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She’s left her earthly life behind to join the elite military team Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. (Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck describe Starforce as the SEAL Team Six of space.) Its members include Carol, Korath (Djimon Hounsou, returning from Guardians of the Galaxy), and Minn-Erva (Crazy Rich Asians’ Gemma Chan).

The film also introduces Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, one of Carol’s oldest friends. She’s a top-notch Air Force pilot with the call sign “Photon,” and she’s also a single mother to a young daughter.

The September 2018 issue of Entertainment Weekly hits stands in a few days. They promise more Captain Marvel news so stay tuned!
