Although we didn't get a trailer for Captain Marvel in today's first look, audiences got to feast their eyes on what all's in store for Brie Larson's Air Force pilot, Carol Danvers, and all her supporting characters. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol1 villain Ronan the Accuser had been confirmed and the new pictures show actor Lee Pace back in costume.

According to Marvel Studios president Kevin Fiege, who spoke to The Toronto Sun in April, Captain Marvel is a "heroine that you haven't seen before", one that can "kick a-" but is also "funny and sassy and talks back". For example, when the film starts, Carol already has her powers, having left her life on Earth to join an elite Kree military team, the Starforce, which is led by Jude Law's character. The oldest alien race in Marvel's stable have been strangely absent from all of their live action endeavors over the years, but that will finally change with the Captain Marvel movie.

The magazine tweeted out its latest cover, featuring Brie Larson as the Marvel hero.

'She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. Next stop? Captain Marvel. Law says, "These extraordinary powers she has, he sees them as something of a blessing and something that she has to learn how to control".

US business groups welcomed the signs of progress but made clear that they would oppose any deal that did not include Canada. The U.S. must give six-months notice to both Canada and Mexico if it intends to pull out of the deal.

Another nineties throwback? A younger Samuel L. Jackson, de-aged via CGI and playing a two-eyed Nick Fury. The suit looks like it came directly from the comic books.

We see Ben Mendelsohn's Talos in his natural green and his shapeshifted human form - both equally intimidating visages for the Skrull leader since his human alter-ego will be undercover at S.H.I.E.L.D. In the comics, Maria's daughter is Monica, who ends up with superpowers and grows up to become an Avenger.

Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck (Half-Nelson, Mississippi Grind) with a script they worked on with Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), and Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (GLOW). This is our first standalone superhero movie starring a woman, and the stakes (Thanos notwithstanding) couldn't be higher.
