Brie Larson punches a pensioner in the first trailer for Captain Marvel

Marvel Studios have unveiled the first official, action-packed trailer for Captain Marvel.

Set in the 90s, Captain Marvel follows former US Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, who becomes one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes after her DNA is fused with Kree, which imbues her with superhuman strength, energy projection, and flight.

She subsequently joins Kree miltary team Starforce, and returns to Earth when it’s caught in the centre of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.

Brie Larson – who won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Room – plays the titular character.

MCU veteran Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury, who was digitally de-aged by 25 years.

Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Mckenna Grace, Rune Temte, Clark Gregg, Jude Law, Robert Kazinsky and Annette Bening also star.

In the trailer, Captain Marvel crashes into a Blockbuster (very 90s), punches a pensioner (Skrull?) and explores space.

Captain Marvel – the first female-led film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe – hits cinemas 8 March.
