Hello, Brie fans! Captain Marvel first official images are finally here as Brie Larson is covering the new issue as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. Read below what we learned about the movie and check our gallery for HQ images:
There’s a bright new star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Marvel leads the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s new issue, with an exclusive first look at Brie Larson’s Air-Force-pilot-turned-intergalactic-hero.
Film fans know Carol Danvers only as the mysterious person paged by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the last scene of Avengers: Infinity War, and she’ll appear in the still-untitled Avengers 4, presumably to help beat up on Thanos. But before that, she’s got her own story to tell — and EW has all the exclusive intel on her upcoming solo film.
When Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019, it’ll be the 21st entry in the MCU — and the first to star a solo female superhero. In the past decade, the MCU has assembled a diverse lineup of female heroes, from witches and warriors to widows and wasps. But never before has a woman headlined her own story — until Captain Marvel, the part-Kree, part-human pilot who made her comics debut 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.”
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She’s left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law’s enigmatic commander.
But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. And she’s got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls — the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth.
Speaking of Earth, Captain Marvel takes place in the mid-’90s, long before Steve Rogers was defrosted or Tony Stark built his first suit. That allows the film to introduce younger version of familiar Marvel faces — like Jackson’s Nick Fury, who’s still a two-eyed S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey — as well as let Carol carve out her own, unique space in the MCU.
“This is not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection,” says 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.”
Entertainment Weekly will be rolling out all kinds of details on the film over the next few days — including exclusive photos, details from our set visit, and in-depth interviews with the cast and crew — so stay tuned to EW.com.
We’re close to see an official footage of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. While we’re still waiting this month Total Film issue features Captain Marvel on its Comic-Book Preview.
Pagging all ’90s fans! If you’re still recovering from Avengers: Infinity War, you’re in luck – Marvel’s fist pequel looks set to provide a dose of nostalgia to sooth some of that intergalactic angst. “These are definitely homages to our favourite ’90s action films,” studio chief Kevin Feige promises of the ’90s-set Captain Marvel, in which Brie Larson’s Air Force pilot Carol Danvers gains superpowers after crash landing in the midst of an alien war.
“Much of the movie taks place in outer space,” Feige reveals, perhaps explaining why Captain Marvel has been missing from the MCU this far. She’s sure to make a big impact in her first movie, though, which could hold the key to righting all of Thanos’ Infinity War wrongs (it lands in cinemas two months before Avengers 4). “She’s so, so strong,” enthuses Larson. “She can move planets!” Sounds like somebody the Avengers could use right about now.
With MCU regulars Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg both appearing, digitally de-aged, as Nick Fury and Phil Coulson, the whole shebang’s being orchestrated by directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind). And according to Feige, it’s partially inspired by the greatest of ’90s sci-fi movies: Terminator 2. “Those cool street-level fights and car chases,” he’s said, suggesting what we might expect. Adds Larson: “I’m proud of what it is we’re making. All of the hype will be worth it.” Buckle up, kids; there’s a new hero in town.

Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson on navigating fame, playing dynamic but vulnerable roles and how her new film, The Glass Castle, helped her move on from her past.
When journalist Jeannette Walls’s acclaimed 2005 memoir The Glass Castle was released, Paramount snapped up the film rights. Yet, even though it has taken more than a decade to get this vibrant drama about a dysfunctional family made, Walls doesn’t seem disheartened. In fact, this lengthy period enabled film-makers to employ the person she believes is the ideal embodiment of herself: the talented Brie Larson; an actress who, serendipitously, would not have landed the coveted role when the book was released.
‘I wanted Brie Larson to play this part even before I knew who she was,’ Walls said in an interview.* ‘She understandshow to be strong and vulnerable at the same time… she knows what it’s like to fight and be scared.’
Emotionally charged and highly topical, the film explores a poverty-stricken upbringing with deeply troubled parents(Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson), expanding into a more conventional and glamorous adulthood. It highlights the thrilling highs and devastating lows that come from growing up in an unstable environment… a father, for instance, who would disappear for days at a time, returning on a whim to uproot his brood, always hiding the brutal reality of his problems from his children by promising one day to build them a glass castle – the blueprints of which he has on hand.
Walls eventually ran away from her family and became a successful journalist in New York. Larson, too, experienced hardship in her youth: following her parents’ divorce, aged seven, she moved to Los Angeles with her mother and sister. The actress has said in the past how the three of them would sleep in one bed in a studio apartment but, in spite of the challenges, it was a happy time, thanks to her mother’s fierce desire to protect her children from the pain of poverty.
‘It’s great when films represent a sort of a homecoming in terms of the timing of the role and the poignancy of the story,’ says Larson. ‘You always want something that feels accessible from within.’
These days, Larson’s life couldn’t be more different. She lives in the Hollywood Hills with fiancé Alex Greenwald – former front man for the rock band Phantom Planet – and her spectacular rise continues with the upcoming Captain Marvel production, along with her first foray into feature-length directing in the comedy Unicorn Store. Although she’s had to work hard and wait a long time for success, struggling to get noticed has awarded Larson a wealth of experience to draw on as a performer. It’s also made her gracious, fearless and confident enough to head up her own stand-alone film franchise in Captain Marvel, plus a potential second Oscar for The Glass Castle.
You’ve been travelling the world a lot lately with your jungle epic Kong: Skull Island [Hawaii, Australia and Vietnam], then shooting Free Fire In Brighton in England, and The Glass Castle in Montreal.
That’s just how it goes. It’s usually a couple of months in one spot, which is enough to get a handle on a place. I love that I’ve worked in so many locations. But, because we are always moving around, there are certain moments, like attending a banquet or an awards ceremony, that are amazing. It’s like having a reunion.
Apparently, you had a pleasant surprise while filming The Glass Castle in Montreal.
Yes, Jennifer Lawrence was also shooting there, so we spent our weekends together. We were like, ‘How could we be so lucky?’ You get used to being on your own and meeting new people all the time, so it’s such a treat when there’s a friend there.
Has success changed you in any significant way?
I’m quite a private person; so much of my day-to-day is the same. The beauty of being a 20-year ‘overnight’ success is that I’ve had a lot of time to have a very clear understanding of what I’m interested in and why it fulfils me.
You’re going to be the star of your own superhero franchise in Captain Marvel. Is it important to be part of a major studio film like that?
I think it’s vital that women are presented in a more positive and serious way. Society has changed dramatically and women are finding their way into all levels of business, and becoming leaders in so many fields. Movies need to reflect this, as well as the skills we have that set us apart from men. Playing Captain Marvel gave me a chance to portray a dynamic and powerful woman, who will inspire people in the same way that male superheroes have done in the past.
In Kong: Skull Island, you also play a rather determined woman.
It goes beyond being tough; it’s about relating to women in an unusual way and not simply replacing a male character with a female one. You need to get into the sensibility and sensitivity that women bring with their way of seeing the world, and that’s one of the things I loved about Mason [in Kong] and what I’d like to bring to Captain Marvel.
You’ve been quoted as saying that you had a challenging time while promoting Room, – and with all the publicity that came from winning the Oscar.
This job can be really draining on one side, because you have to give so much. You’re giving emotionally when you’re playing a character, and you’re giving emotionally when you are doing interviews, and meeting fans. It’s an act of service. You have to find a way to balance it with things that are for you and that fi ll you back up again. I feel as if I’m still learning aboutthat balance, because the output is more than it used to be – however, my overall life is the same.
Like many actors who fi nd success, there must be a sense of relief in not having to worry about paying the bills and being able to work regularly?
It makes your life much easier on a practical level. Not that I’ve changed my spending habits dramatically or live differently now from the way I used to, but at least I don’t have to worry about money any more. It’s not pleasant having to live under that pressure when you’re trying to find good roles and wanting to prove yourself. I guess that, on an artistic level, I still worry about the kind of work that I’m doing and whether I’m living up to my own ambitions. I don’t think that will ever change when it comes to how I approach things.
Room resonated deeply with audiences. Do you still think about the experience and emotions that came with telling that story [about a kidnapped woman and her son]?
While we were shooting it, I felt more connected to my past. We had a pretty tough time after my mother, my little sister and I moved to Los Angeles. I remember calling my mum in tears and telling her that I understood at last how many sacrifices she had made for me. She was crying, too, during our conversation, and she apologised for all the difficulties that we went through. It taught me how we all need to be more forgiving of ourselves.
How do feel about your life these days?
I feel extremely lucky to have some wonderful friends anda good partner. And I love my dogs
