  • VIDEO: Our First Look at Brie Larson as 'Captain Marvel'

Wednesday was a big day for those who have been impatiently awaiting the arrival of Marvel's next film, Captain Marvel.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Marvel Studios' president Kevin Feige has confirmed that they are now developing more female-led Marvel movies following Captain Marvel's release and are planning to announce the films in the near future. Captain Marvel's suit is looking rather badass, too. But never to be forgotten is Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, and the Fury we see in "Captain Marvel" isn't one were familiar with.

That's not a great look for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which only released its first movie (and 20th overall) with a female character in the title earlier this year. "Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers", writes Devan Coogan in EW.

MARVEL has revealed the first proper look at Brie Larson as Captain Marvel.

That brings us to Danvers' Starforce squad, which aside from featuring Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, has a big surprise: Djimon Hounsou's Korath, who was introduced as one of the bad guys in 2014's Guardians of the Galaxy.

"She can't help but be herself", Larson told EW of her character, adding: "She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face".

Nike takes sides, tapping Colin Kaepernick for new ‘Just Do It’ ad
The tweet garnered about 10,000 retweets and 30,000 likes, plus thousands of critical comments. And, it's not a brand loyalty thing from Brady - he's not a Nike athlete.

"Captain Marvel" is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck. And dang, does she look good!

Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019. But what makes her special is just how human she is.

The movie is set in the 1990s - referenced clearly through Carol Danvers' Nine Inch Nails T-shirt in one photo - and is the first prequel in the MCU. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn't always make the ideal decisions for herself.

European Union may end daylight saving time after millions vote against practice
At the time, one of the outstanding questions was whether other major European auto players would join the call for zero tariffs. The European Commission will need to agree on this decision, and to put forward a draft document on the abolition of summer time.

In other images, we get first glimpses of a young Nick Fury without his iconic eye-patch (Samuel L Jackson), her oldest friend Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) and the antagonists - an army of Skrulls led by Talos (Ben Mendelsohn).
