Yesterday Brie Larson teased the arrival of something exciting regarding the MCU’s newest hero – Captain Marvel. The actress posted the following tweet, calling out Entertainment Weekly to join in her scheme:
Hey @EW I’m bored. Wanna break the Internet tomorrow?

There have been several low res set photos circulating from the production over the past few months, but today is our first really good look at the MCU superhero.
Larson stars as Carol Danver, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight. The film will be set in the ’90s before the Avengers ever thought of assembling, and Samuel L. Jackson is expected to reprise his role as Nick Fury.
Yesterday we spoke to Gemma Chan, who joined the cast as Captain Minnerva,
and she dropped something of a spoiler (although those keeping up with set pictures will know something like this was afoot) about the film – so SPOILER warning etc etc… Skip to 6:30 for the info.
So, here’s the big reveal, direct from EW, and there’ll be more to come.
