Of course, there would need to be a reason for a cat to appear on the poster, and there's every suggestion that this is in fact Chewie, Captain Marvel's faithful pet. Chewie was first introduced in Marvel comic books in 2006 when Carol Danvers left Earth to go exploring the galaxy, and she gave Chewie that name because she reminded her of Chewbacca from Star Wars.
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 stars Academy Award® victor Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Lee Pace (Ronan), Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva), Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Kenneth Mitchell (Joseph Danvers), with Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), and Jude Law (Marv-Vell).
The wait is finally over, True Believers - the trailer for Captain Marvel has arrived and it looks absolutely stunning. "Never occurred to me that one might come from above", he says.
After she crash-lands on Earth, we get a shot of Carol sporting a leather jacket and an old school S.H.I.E.L.D. cap.
Samuel L Jackson reprises his iconic Nick Fury role, with the veteran actor getting digitally de-aged to play the future head of Shield.
Feige said that the Nick Fury in Captain Marvel is a man 'who thought the Cold War is over [so] the best days are behind him. I know a renegade soldier when I see one.
Other familiar faces include Lee Pace's Ronan the Accuser, last seen being defeated in the first Guardians of the Galaxy, and Djimon Hounsou's Korath. We saw her kicking ass as a fighter pilot in the Air Force.
Television and movies are filled to the brim with odes to the '80s, so it's rare to see the just-as-colorful decade get some much-needed love. "This is all so surreal and new to me", Larson said.
