Captain Marvel’s debut is highly anticipated given the events of “Avengers: Infinity War.” After Thanos wiped out half of humanity, Nick Fury sent an emergency message to Captain Marvel in the film’s after-credits scene before disappearing, setting her up as a game-changer in the battle with Thanos.

But before she joins the remaining Avengers in the “Infinity War” sequel in May, she’ll debut in March in her own movie, which is set in the 1990s and features Samuel L. Jackson as Fury and Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson.

The movie’s star-studded cast also includes Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, Annette Bening, Gemma Chan, and Lee Pace, who’s reprising his “Guardians of the Galaxy” role of Ronan.

EW released a few more images of the production:

“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. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”

“Captain Marvel” comes to theatres March 8.
