Yesterday, Brie Larson took to Twitter to offer her followers their very first look at the actress in Marvel's forthcoming Captain Marvel movie. She's in costume, yes, but - like it says up top - it's probably not the one you were expecting.
Let's take a look.

Maybe you were expecting the tights, the gloves and the sash. We were, too, but we're intrigued that this is the first in-character shot to be released. Before gaining her powers, Carol Danvers (Larson) worked for NASA, and before that, she was a pilot. Presumably, what we're seeing here is Danvers in training, on her way to becoming Captain Marvel. Pretty cool!
Production on Captain Marvel is currently underway in Atlanta. We'll be keeping a close eye on this one as it works its way through production, so stay tuned for further updates as they become available.
In the meantime: in terms of hype levels, where are you folks at on this one? We're thrilled to have another female-led superhero movie headed our way, not to mention how excited we are about Captain Marvel's cast (which also includes Jude Law, Ben Mendelsohn, and Samuel L. Jackson), but how 'bout you? Sound off in the comments below.
