Captain Marvel is set to hit theatres on March 8, 2019.

Now, thanks to EW, we also know more about where we'll begin the film and what we'll see.
Captain Marvel has a relatively straightforward origin story in the comics, she is caught in an explosion with the Kree Mar-Vell, and as he perishes his superhuman abilities pass into Carol Danvers as she becomes Captain Marvel. "But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw". That allows the film to introduce younger version of familiar Marvel faces - like Jackson's Nick Fury, who's still a two-eyed S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey - as well as let Carol carve out her own, unique space in the MCU. The only other female-led project that in the works is the long-awaited Black Widow film starring Scarlett Johansson with Cate Shortland directing the film, but no other projects have been announced yet. And dang, does she look good! And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn't always make the flawless decisions for herself.
The images reveal two Captain Marvel uniforms - the green, black and silver regalia of the intergalactic Starforce and the red, blue and gold Captain Marvel get-up comic fans are more used to. Brie Larson or Carol Danvers will already have her powers since the beginning of the movie. Check out EW.com for more exclusives from this new issue.
Captain Marvel has a March 8, 2019 release directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and stars Academy Award victor Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, with Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.
A series of ten official pictures in the new Enretainment Weekly include shots of the Skrulls and one of the actor Ben Mendelsohn.
