Though Avengers: Infinity War, hinted at her presence, we never got to see Carol Danvers, aka. Captain Marvel yet on the big screen. We have seen concept art and "spy" shots of the costumed character, but nothing official (yes, yes we did see an official image of Brie Larson as Carol Danvers but you know what we mean). Today, Entertainment Weekly changed all that and has delivered us the first images from Marvel's next live-action movie, Captain Marvel.
Brie Larson, costumed as Captain Marvel, in fact gets the cover of the next issue of Entertainment Weekly. Take a look:

In covering the cover, the magazine gives us a little preview of what the movie will be like:
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander.
But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls — the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth.
Speaking of Earth, Captain Marvel takes place in the mid-'90s, long before Steve Rogers was defrosted or Tony Stark built his first suit. That allows the film to introduce younger version of familiar Marvel faces — like Jackson's Nick Fury, who's still a two-eyed S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey — as well as let Carol carve out her own, unique space in the MCU.
Along with the cover, EW also posted a few images from the movie:

We're sure that EW will have more Captain Marvel stories this week. The Captain Marvel issue should hit the stands Friday. Captain Marvel, the movie, will take off March 8, 2019.
