With the DCEU's Wonder Woman and the MCU's upcoming Captain Marvel, female-led superhero movies are becoming more common.

While we still don't have a trailer - although one will surely arrive in the next few weeks - Entertainment Weekly have unveiled a proper first look at the movie which, while not quite living up to the "break the internet" hype, does give us a much better idea of what to expect from the movie. But, before "Avengers 4", we will get to know more about when "Captain Marvel" premieres. As per the comics, one of the photos sees Captain Danvers in her plane as part of the US Air Force.

Marvel boss Kevin Feige has confirmed more female-led superhero movies are set to be announced.

MARVEL has revealed the first proper look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

Marvel may not have any more movies coming out in 2018, but the march towards 2019 has begun!


Larson was, of course, swayed in the end: "Just seeing a character who says how she feels and says what's on her mind and doesn't let people stand in her way is incredibly empowering".

How exactly the movie handles the Carol Danvers origin story remains to be seen as it ties into Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel in the comics. This will be the first time a superheroine will lead a Marvel film.

"This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", says Boden, who's the MCU's first female director. "But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity - and all of its messiness".

You can find the full Captain Marvel feature over at EW, who will be releasing more exclusive content as the week goes on.

Captain Marvel is set up to play an important role in next spring's yet-to-be-title fourth Avengers film. "This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", she told EW; Larson's quotes also emphasize that Captain Marvel "can be a little invasive and in your face".
