Additionally, the cover emphasizes once again that Carol is the "most powerful" hero.

We already knew that Jackson was going to be digitally de-aged for Captain Marvel to appear as a younger Nick Fury who doesn't yet have his famous eye patch - the film is set in the 1990s, when he's far from any high-ranking position in S.H.I.E.L.D. - and we now know how he will look (at the bottom).

EW has released the first images from the upcoming Marvel Studios film Captain Marvel. She's left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law's enigmatic commander. While speaking to EW, Feige laid out Carol's character by calling her Kree half "unemotional" before adding that "this human part of her that is flawed, but is also the thing that she ends up leading by". And she's got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls - the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more unsafe by their shape-shifting abilities.

One of the pictures (below) shows the green-skinned alien Skrull race on a beach, including Ben Mendelsohn as their leader Talos. The only other female-led project that in the works is the long-awaited Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson with Cate Shortland directing the film, but no other projects have been announced yet.

Are you excited to see Carol Danvers make her MCU debut? She's amusing, but doesn't always tell good jokes.

That brings us to Danvers' Starforce squad, which aside from featuring Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, has a big surprise: Djimon Hounsou's Korath, who was introduced as one of the bad guys in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy.

"Captain Marvel" lands in theaters everywhere on March 8, 2019. "The success of Wonder Woman made me very happy because as I've said before in the press, I'd much rather the question be, 'Oh gosh, what did you think about that successful female-led hero that came out a few years ago?' Rather than the question I used to get, which was, 'Are you afraid that people don't want to see a female hero?'"
