Marvel's first female-led superhero film will be long, long overdue when it finally hits theaters in 2019, but the movie is shaping up to be worth the wait. For one thing, Captain Marvel has Oscar winner Brie Larson as its Carol, an actress who has shown she has the ability to pull off action, comedy, and drama. The character also seems like she'll be getting a pretty impressive on-screen version. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige has said Captain Marvel will be "as powerful a character as we've ever put in a movie." There's also some impressive talent behind the scenes, with Geneva Robertson-Dworet, the mind behind the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot and DC's Gotham City Sirens, rewriting a script from Guardians of the Galaxy's Nicole Perlman and Inside Out's Meg LeFauve.
While we don't know what'll happen in Captain Marvel's first solo big-screen adventure, the studio has directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck at the helm. The talent it's assembled thus far is impressive and hints that the film, which will serve as an origin story for Carol (and will be different than her origin story from the comics), will definitely be a must-see. While we wait to find out more, we've done a little Photoshop to show you what Larson might look like when she wields Captain Marvel's power.
