Higher. Further. Faster. Those words not only form the tagline for the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but also the film’s approach to cementing Captain Marvel’s place among an already thriving pantheon of heroes. The film’s trailer, released Tuesday morning, wastes no time in not only establishing Captain Marvel’s tremendous power set, but also distinguishing her from the heroes that have come before. Chief among those defining factors is that Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel) will be the first woman in the MCU to lead a solo film. The film is also the first entry in the MCU to feature a woman in the director’s chair, with directing duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind) piloting the project and hopefully making a smooth landing when the film enters theaters on March 8, 2019.
