Today sees our first look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, the most powerful supehero in the MCU to date.
Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers who gets involved in a galatic war between the Kree and the Skrull when the Earth gets caught in the middle.
You can check out the first official look below at the character as well as images of the Skrulls, Samuel L. Jackson as the young Nick Fury (using tech to de-age the actor by 25 years), Lee Pace back from Guardians of the Galaxy as Ronan, Jude Law as Mar-vell, and more.
Brie Larson sports the classic Captain Marvel costume in the red, blue and gold, which fans should be happy with, and also which should put down any doubt about the costume. Following the set images and video (see below) of the green suit – presumably some sort of Kree prototype suit as we see Jude Law sports it below – fans were a little nervous by what they saw, but this image (albeit photoshopped) looks pretty good.
The cover pic also features Carol Danvers teasing her powers as her fists are lit up with cosmic power. A previous batch of leaked art and promo material also features Captain Marvel showing off her powers (see below).
Regarding my reaction to the Captain Marvel costume, I have to say that I like what I see. It’s only the first official look, so it will be intersting to see how it looks on the big screen. If I had to find one thing wrong, it would be that it’s a bit shiny for my taste, but that could be because of the photoshop job.
The Skrulls and Kree look okay, I guess. Again, I’ll have to wait until the first footage hits to make a decision. Not bad, I guess.
Here are some reactions from Twitter:
That #CaptainMarvel costume looks SO good, what a great adaption to screen.
The plot details sound super exciting, and not what I expected, which is nice!
