We knew Brie Larson was going to be a total badass as Captain Marvel, but now we’re finally seeing it with our own eyes.
Marvel Studios unleashed the first trailer for the highly anticipated superhero flick, and it’s everything we’ve hoped it would be.
We got our first look at Larson in the superhero suit earlier this month as she graced the cover of Entertainment Weekly.

Larson took to her own Twitter account to celebrate the release of the trailer with a cheeky caption of “Look Mom, I’m a superhero.”

While it’s obvious this is the studio’s first female-led superhero film, women are also making waves behind the scenes. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are co-directing, and Boden is Marvel’s first female director.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, recently revealed that Captain Marvel is setting a precedent for the future of the studio’s films in that it won’t be the last film directed by a woman.
“I cannot promise that all 20 Marvel movies will have female directors but a heck of a lot of them will,” he says, according to Variety.
Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019. Check out the full trailer below.
