Our First Look at Brie Larson as 'Captain Marvel'

Starring Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson, Captain Marvel marks the first time that an MCU film will star a female character in the lead role.

"There's a certain level of female sisterhood that I haven't seen in a superhero film before, that we have in abundance", Lynch said. The heroine was given extra-dimensional powers when she tried to keep a weapon from being created, and Monica became a hero who operated under the name Captain Marvel.

The images reveal two Captain Marvel uniforms - the green, black and silver regalia of the intergalactic Starforce and the red, blue and gold Captain Marvel get-up comic fans are more used to. She's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more risky by their shape-shifting abilities. Danvers is seen without her suit in another photo (scroll to the bottom) alongside Law's character, Walter Lawson aka Mar-Vell, who's the commander of Starforce. He went on to say that her humanity is "also the thing that makes her great".

In the comics, Maria only appeared a handful of times since her first appearance in 1984, and her primary character trait is that she worries costantly that her daughter Monica will get herself killed working with The Avengers. She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.
