Captain Marvel Update

September 7, 2018

The cover of Entertainment Weekly’s latest issue, which hits newsstands on Friday, has fans’ first official look at Oscar-winner Brie Larson as the hero of the 2019 Marvel Studios film Captain Marvel. The movie is the first female-led, female co-directed entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The character, an Air Force pilot who is accidentally enhanced by alien powers, is different, says co-director Anna Bowden. Ryan Fleck is also credited as director.

“This is not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection. But what makes her special is just how human she is,” explains Bowden.

The movie opens March 8, 2019.
