Brie Larson makes her debut as Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, on the front cover of Entertainment weekly, released on Thursday.

Coming off of two feature-length thirst traps in Black Pantherand Thor: Ragnarok, Marvel has a set a high bar for onscreen hotness, and as connoisseurs of superhero sex appeal it's an honor to continue feeling seen by the casting department at Disney headquarters.

This afternoon, EW provided the world with our first look at Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson's portrayal of Captain Marvel. In addition to Larson, you'll recognize other Marvel characters like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg) in the movie.

If it was possible to be more excited for Captain Marvel I now am.

Captain Marvel finally arrives on 8 March next year, and we'd predict a trailer won't be far behind this far reveal.

Seems like a natural direction to take things, considering Carol will be getting her powers in a freak accident (assuming they stick relatively close to the comic book canon, but we'll see). Then there's nine more from the set, which feature Jude Law, some familiar faces, and Nine Inch Nails t-shirt. Check out the full story from "Entertainment Weekly" here.

It's also important to note that this film features Marvel's first female director. In the comics, Captain Marvel uses his body to shield Carol from an explosion. Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississipi Grind) direct from a script by Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (GLOW), as well as Boden and Fleck. It's only the first official look, so it will be intersting to see how it looks on the big screen. Could this be a hint that Maria might get superpowers of her own, or is this just a little Easter egg for hardcore Marvel fans to pick up on?

Not only did we get a look at Mar-Vell in plainclothes, but we also get to see him suited up alongside Lee Pace's Ronan the Accuser. "But the (not) waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw". With Kevin Feige saying the film takes cues from '90s action movies like Terminator 2: Judgment Day, that sounds right to us. Larsen told EW that Carol "can't help but be herself".
