Captain Marvel leads the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s new issue, with an exclusive first look at Brie Larson’s Air-Force-pilot-turned-intergalactic-hero.
Film fans know Carol Danvers only as the mysterious person paged by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) in the last scene of Avengers: Infinity War, and she’ll appear in the still-untitled Avengers 4, presumably to help beat up on Thanos. But before that, she’s got her own story to tell — and EW has all the exclusive intel on her upcoming solo film.
When Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8, 2019, it’ll be the 21st entry in the MCU — and the first to star a solo female superhero. In the past decade, the MCU has assembled a diverse lineup of female heroes, from witches and warriors to widows and wasps. But never before has a woman headlined her own story — until Captain Marvel, the part-Kree, part-human pilot who made her comics debut back in 1968.
“She can’t help but be herself,” Larson tells EW. “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.”

“I felt like if I keep everything plain in front then it brings my mind to the forefront,” says the Oscar winner on why she previously rejected being a fashion star. She credits her stylist Christina Ehrlich with helping her embrace fashion saying, “you can wear something that actually makes someone understand you better and want to get to know you better.”
It’s several hours before the Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon is set to begin at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and Brie Larson rolls into her suite wearing dark jeans, a black sweater, ankle boots and zero makeup. She could be any pretty young woman arriving at the hotel from the airport; she did in fact just step off a 14-hour flight from Australia, one of the many far-flung locations where she’s been shooting “Kong: Skull Island” for the last four months.
This crazy juxtaposition of worlds — the Hollywood glamour surrounding a first-time Best Actress nominee; the dark indie film “Room” that showcased her talent and set her on the Oscar campaign trail (she’s already nabbed Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild trophies); and the big-budget, CGI-laden “King Kong” reboot that she’s currently filming, would be enough to send any 26-year-old into momentary shock. Instead, Larson is extremely present, taking it all in as it comes, journal in hand and bright-eyed — even though she’s had precious little sleep for the last month.

What’s happening to Brie Larson at this moment is every actor’s dream. On the heels of her Room triumph, the star goes gargantuan in her next project, Kong: Skull Island, and in just a few weeks she’ll walk down the biggest red carpet there is (16,500 square feet!). She sat down with Holly Millea for this month’s cover story and spoke candidly about her own story, revealing things about her past and present that paint an engaging, honest, and thoughtful picture of where she’s been and where she’s going.
To find out what she had to say check out the entire interview exclusively in our brand-new bigger, bolder March issue of ELLE (yes, ELLE magazine is literally blowing up!) on newsstands nationwide February 16. But first, a sneak peek at who the real Brie Larson really is.
