Debuting in the earlier hours today on Good Morning America, here’s the first trailer for the long-awaited Captain Marvel, which sees Brie Larson step into the role of the title hero and flesh out what the Marvel Cinematic Universe looked like during the grunge era.
Set in the mid-1990s, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, as she turns into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes and joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team, before returning home with new questions about her past and identity when the Earth is caught in the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.
It also stars Samuel L. Jackson as a younger version of Nick Fury (with two eyes even!), the great Ben Mendelsohn as the Skrull leader Talos, Clark Gregg as a rookie version of Coulson, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau (paving the way for Monica in present-day), the return of both Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou as Ronan and Korath respectively, and Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva. Jude Law will also star as a mentor for Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
