Marvel's Kevin Feige Assures More Woman-Led Movies Are Coming

Per the norm, the MCU will be different, with Starforce composed of Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Guardians of the Galaxy's Djimon Hounsou's Korath, Gemma Chan's sniper Minn-Erva, and Jude Law is revealed to be playing the leader, Mar-vell.

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. Set in the 1990s, the film is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Currently, Ant-Man and the Wasp is Marvel's first movie that includes a female hero in the title, while Captain Marvel starring Academy Award victor Brie Larson is the studio's first female-led superhero film. I really thought when they hired me, 'I am the worst choice for an action movie.' And I didn't know that I had a little Keanu Reeves in me!

Brie Larson is set to star as the Air Force Pilot turned superhero, Carol Danvers, in the next movie up in the MCU franchise.

But Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson and co-written and -directed by Anna Boden, is coming in 2019, and Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige promised more female-led superheroes movies will be "announced in the near future".

Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers.

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

"This is not a superhero who's ideal or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", Boden said. "But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity - and all of its messiness". But never to be forgotten is Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and the Fury we see in "Captain Marvel" isn't one were familiar with.

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's debut is highly anticipated given the events of "Avengers: Infinity War".
