These Great ‘Captain Marvel’ Images Give Us A Better Look At The Film

Published

on

As the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe before the highly-anticipated Avengers 4, all eyes are on Captain Marvel to give fans a superhero who can help to defeat Thanos and the film universe’s first solo titular female. With a March 8, 2019 release, some new images introduce new characters and bring back familiar faces.

A Young Nick Fury

A digitally de-aged Samuel L. Jackson is a sight for sore eyes—of which he has both here—after his character’s absence in most of Avengers: Infinity War. In the after-credits scene, Fury sent a message with a pager-type device that showed Captain Marvel’s symbol, so his inclusion in this prequel isn’t surprising.

A Notoriously Bad Guy

Talos, the leader of the Skrulls, will serve as this film’s Big Bad—a shapeshifter alien who will lead an invasion of Earth by posing as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Played by Ben Mendelsohn, Talos will bring Captain Marvel—Carol Danvers—back to Earth to fight for the planet in the 1990s.

Ronan The Accuser, Pre-Accusing?

The last fans saw of Ronan the Accuser, he was a Kree radical working for Thanos to retrieve the power Infinity Stone, so the Mad Titan would destroy the planet Xandar, before he was bested and killed by the Guardians of the Galaxy. As Captain Marvel is half-Kree, one can expect that the prequel-version of Ronan will be an ally of hers.

Alien Mentor: Jude Law

At first glance, Jude Law’s character Walter Lawson—also known as Mar-Vell—doesn’t look like an alien, but the commander of Starforce is 100% Kree. As Carol Danvers’ mentor, he helped her master her abilities and, in the comics, was the first person to hold the title Captain Marvel.

An Unexpected Teammate

Along with getting another look at Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel in this photo, there’s a familiar face following her: Korath the Pursuer. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1, Korath worked with Ronan to pursue Star-Lord and the rest of the Guardians in order to retrieve the Infinity Stone. In Captain Marvel, he is one of Carol Danvers’ Starforce teammates.
