The cast also includes Lashana Lynch and Gemma Chan, along with Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, and McKenna Grace.

Captain Marvel will debut in theaters on March 8, 2019.

Actor Brie Larson has stolen queer hearts in the first trailer for Marvel Studios' first woman-fronted film Captain Marvel. In Captain Marvel's acclimation to the planet, he is her in-between. Captain Marvel will spend the film getting to her know her former self, and between that and her alien abilities, she'll be the ideal force to take on the baddies. Remember, she's been in space long enough to forge a new life as a member of Starforce. Ronan the Accuser, the villain of Guardians Vol. 1 is a renegade member of the Kree who will reportedly reappear in Captain Marvel-perhaps even as a member of Starforce, which he has been at times in the Marvel comics.

But it's great to finally see Carol Danvers get that big, inspiring superhero treatment, when we've been left waiting for this movie for years, through multiple delays. We then hear a voiceover from none other than Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, who will have a very prominent role in Captain Marvel (and hasn't lost one of his eyes yet). No sooner has the trailer started and we see a huge explosion in the sky, Captain Marvel falling to Earth and crashing - into a Blockbuster Video no less!

The poster is captioned Higher, Further, Faster and drops hints about the scale of action Captain Marvel will offer in this prequel.

New bond: 'So you're not from around here, ' he says as they drive in a auto. Danvers already appears to be outfitted in her Captain Marvel gear when she hurdles back to Earth, and a voice over from none other that Nick Fury tells us that we're now fighting an intergalactic war.

I also liked how they included a number of Captain Marvel looks.

"She's more powerful than, possibly, all The Avengers combined", says Claire Lim, a huge comic book fan and a presenter for BBC's The Social. You can take another look at Captain Marvel wearing the cool helmet (complete with a forcefield around her mouth for breathing and a mohawk hairstyle) in an underwater scene at around 1.36 in the trailer.
