Captain Marvel: First look at Brie Larson's hero in '90s-set solo film

Marvel's Comic-Con panel also confirmed the return of Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury, alongside introducing the film's villains

While all eyes may have been on Thor: Ragnarok, alongside the secret trailers for Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War shown only to Hall H audiences, Marvel had a very exciting future to tease at this year's Comic-Con.

All coming in the form of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel, the newest character set to join the MCU, and a probable leader for the next generation of superheroes set to light up our screens.

The panel saw a first look at Larson's suit for the character, which is staying very true to her design in the comics, alongside some info on her upcoming solo film.

First off, it's all set to be a period piece taking place in the '90s (oh, the plaid options!), with Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury appearing in his pre-eyepatch form, potentially with an explanation as to what actually happened there.

Furthermore, Captain Marvel will be facing off against the Skrulls in the film, an alien race of shape-shifting green creatures; intriguing since they're traditionally seen as Fantastic Four villains, and so would presumably be under the ownership of tFox.

Whatever happened behind the scenes, the introduction of the Skrulls and their ability to disguise themselves as anyone could have some particularly massive effects on the MCU; say, if one of the Avengers suddenly turned around and revealed themselves to be a Skrull in disguise this entire time.
