What do you think of the latest pictures of Captain Marvel's costume?

Ever since 2017's Wonder Woman hit theaters and proceeded to break box office records, it has been shown that, when executed properly, woman-led superhero films can be just as good as their male counterparts.

Brie Larson, the star of Captain Marvel, has revealed why she chose to take on the part of the MCU's latest superhero.

Though most people (us included) thought this meant a trailer, today Entertainment Weekly released a cover story about the movie, complete with our first official look at Brie Larson as 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.

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.

'And it is less a story of, "Oh, look, a female hero", and it's more a story of, "Oh, what's this about?"

In just 48 hours, the storm morphed from a tropical storm into a bonafide Category 5 monster with sustained winds up to 175 mph. Evacuation orders have been issued in some parts of Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, Hyogo, Kagawa, Ehime and Wakayama prefectures.

"She can't help but be herself", Larson told EW.

Feige confirmed to EW Carol Danvers' power is unmatched in the MCU.

"This is not a superhero who's ideal or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", says Boden, who's the MCU's first female director.

Marvel will dole them out slowly, of course, but especially because the third "Avengers" film ended on such a cliffhanger this summer, the geek Internet is hungry to know what "Captain Marvel" holds when it comes out in March, before we finally get the fourth "Avengers". He went on to say that her humanity is "also the thing that makes her great".

Larson is not the only big name set to star in Captain Marvel, as Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, and Ben Mendelsohn all have starring roles.

Keen-eyed observers will also recognise Djimon Hounsou among the Starfleet crew as Korath and Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser - both have previously appeared in Guardians of the Galaxy. In the after-credits scene of "Avengers: Infinity War", Fury sends an alert to Captain Marvel before disappearing from the Thanos snap.
