Marvel releases new Captain Marvel images that fans may not have seen before. The latest MCU film stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, an American Air Force pilot who ends up receiving superhuman strength and becomes a member of Starforce, an intergalactic military unit associated with the Kree. Captain Marvel has been certified “Fresh” by Rotten Tomatoes critics.
Set in 1995, MCU’s 21st franchise film establishes the origin story of Danvers, all the while connecting itself to the upcoming Avengers: Endgame and setting the stage for the the franchise’s future. With Larson leading the way as Captain Marvel, the MCU has an Oscar-winning actress set to lead the franchise into Phase Four, and with wide appeal across various demographics. After an extensive promotional campaign, fans have become more than familiar with Captain Marvel set images and movie stills, however there’s more to be seen ahead of the film’s release.

Today, Marvel released a new behind the scenes photo featuring Larson and co-star Samuel L. Jackson, both of whom recently delivered a passionate rendition of A Star Is Born’s “Shallow." Another photo shows Larson's Carol Danvers standing before an aircraft. In addition, Marvel released photos that appear to be entirely new: Nick Fury with Goose, Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) drinking a soda, a behind the scenes shot from planet Torfa, and Captain Marvel suspended upside down after being captured by the Skrulls. Check out all the images below.
Now that Captain Marvel has arrived, parents want to know if the film is suitable for young girls. As we recently explained, it depends on the maturity and emotional levels of each child. And for those unfamiliar with the original story premise and movie changes, we’ve detailed the most important information to consider. MCU head Kevin Feige recently announced that he already has some “pretty amazing” ideas for a Captain Marvel sequel, and he’s previously confirmed that Larson’s character will indeed "take the lead" moving forward. Carol Danvers won’t have a chronological arc in the MCU, which allows the studio to incorporate her into future films. After Captain Marvel, the April release of Avengers: Endgame will mark the end of the MCU’s Phase 3, and Phase 4 will begin in July with Spider-Man: Far From Home.
Based on the new Captain Marvel images, Larson and company seemed to thoroughly enjoy the production process. Based on first reviews, audiences seem to be having the same experience in theaters.
