Currently, Ant-Man and the Wasp is Marvel's first movie that includes a female hero in the title, while Captain Marvel starring Academy Award victor Brie Larson is the studio's first female-led superhero film. Captain Marvel's suit is looking rather badass, too.
With that in mind, there were some interesting nuggets - including confirmation of Carol Danvers's modern red, blue and gold suit - but one of the most striking revelations was the introduction of its cinematic military team. You'll learn how her current outfit is a tribute to the former hero Mar-Vell and see the Kree influences in Brie Larson's costume.
According to the interview, Maria flew alongside Carol Danvers for years as pilots (presumably before Carol became Captain Marvel and started flying under her own power) and were close friends.
Marvel has indicated that Captain Marvel will be the new face of the franchise after the "Avengers" films come to an end.

The character was teased in the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, and she will also be part of the as-yet untitled Avengers 4 in May 2019. Captain Marvel is rumored to be one of, if not the, strongest heroes in the MCU.
But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past.
"This is not a superhero who's flawless or otherworldly or has some godlike connection", says Boden, who's the MCU's first female director. In addition, Lee Pace will be reprising his role as Ronan from Guardians Of The Galaxy.
Marvel will dole them out slowly, of course, but especially because the third "Avengers" film ended on such a cliffhanger this summer, the geek Internet is hungry to know what "Captain Marvel" holds when it comes out in March, before we finally get the fourth "Avengers".
The comic book and movie powerhouse has released 10 pictures to EW in the USA, which includes glimpses of Larson as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's strongest superhero, Jude Law as her mentor Mar-Vell, Ben Mendelsohn as the villainous Talos and a two-eyed, de-aged Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.
