Brie Larson says Captain Marvel trailer will 'break the internet'

How will Captain Marvel help fight Thanos in Avengers 4

How will Captain Marvel help fight Thanos in Avengers 4

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Brie Larson revealed that she was initially reluctant to play Carol Danvers in the upcoming MCU movie Captain Marvel. In the first look Brie Larson can be seen all suited-up. The first one is their cover image below, which features Larson in full Captain Marvel get up and some flowing hair that Farah Fawcett would envy. A photo leaked months ago of a green and black costume. Interestingly enough, Marvel Comics has a character named Monica Rambeau, who is one of several iterations of Captain Marvel. The character was teased in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, and she will also be part of the as-yet untitled Avengers 4 in May 2019.

EW's cover finds Carol somewhere between the Earth and the sky - a fitting place for a hero who's trying to figure out how to reconcile her alien abilities with her more human flaws.

Captain Marvel is scheduled to be released on March 8, 2019. Ben Mendelson will be playing the Skrull leader Talos.


The magazine adds that Danvers will start the movie in space, where "she's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander". Boden and Fleck worked on the script in addition to Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), and Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch (GLOW). According to Captain Marvel herself, she can move planets. She will eventually return to earth to to take on the Skrulls as they wage a galactic war with the Kree. It's the same tactic Marvel Studios used in Spider-Man: Homecoming, trusting that by now audiences knew how Peter Parker got his superpowers. She plays Carol Danvers - aka Captain Marvel - with superhuman strength and flight, and a mess of other powers that honestly leave her a bit similar to Superman.

Besides some on-set photos of Captain Marvel, including one that celebrated the end of filming, we haven't seen too much from the film, not even a trailer. In addition, Lee Pace will be reprising his role as Ronan from Guardians Of The Galaxy.

Anna Boden, the movie's director, and MCU's first female director, said what made Captain Marvel special is "This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection".
