  • VIDEO: Our First Look at Brie Larson as 'Captain Marvel'

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios' president Kevin Feige has confirmed that they are now developing more female-led Marvel movies following Captain Marvel's release and are planning to announce the films in the near future. Larson will portray the character of Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, a US Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident, which imbues her with the powers of superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight.

One final bit from the photos is we see a young, eyepatch-less Nick Fury who is probably still just a regular S.H.I.E.L.D officer here, kudos to the graphics team for the work they did to make Samuel L Jackson look younger than ever.

Captain Marvel has finally landed.

As a part of EW's ongoing Captain Marvel cover story, Larson spoke with the outlet about her decision to take on the role of Carol Danvers, and all the life-changing frame, career commitment and physical training that comes along with it.
