Largely thanks to her implied importance to the further adventures of the Avengers following Infinity War‘s Thanos finger click, we’ve seen very little of Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel, beyond that Nick Fury pager logo and the odd piece of promotional artwork. Things are about to change however, because the Oscar winning actress has taken to Twitter and challenged Entertainment Weekly to “break the Internet” with something “Marvel-ous”.
Hey @EW I’m bored. Wanna break the Internet tomorrow?

Unless this is the cruellest example of Rickrolling ever to hit the internet, we’re about to get a teaser, or at worst a first glimpse of Carol Danvers from the March 8, 2019 release. It’s surely the cork being pulled on the promotional material now that Infinity War is available to buy on DVD or digital download. If the internet’s still working, we’ll keep you updated when the reveal is dropped.
UPDATE: The reveal was a first look at Larson’s Carol Danvers in her classic Captain Marvel costume, as well as a batch of images from the movie. Check them out here.
Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Captain Marvel is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind) and sees Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island) leading the cast as Carol Danvers alongside Samuel L. Jackson (The Avengers), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lee Pace (Guardians of the Galaxy), Lashana Lynch (Fast Girls), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Algenis Perez Soto (Sambá), Rune Temte (Eddie The Eagle), McKenna Grace (I, Tonya), Annette Bening (American Beauty), McKenna Grace (Gifted), Ana Ayora (The Big Wedding), Vik Sahay (Chuck), Kenneth Mitchell (Star Trek: Discovery), Chuku Modo (The Good Doctor), Clark Gregg (The Avengers) and Jude Law (Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald).
