The Captain Marvel goodies just won’t end! In addition to the beautiful Brie Larson cover, Entertainment Weekly has released a new batch of stills giving us first look at the surrounding cast: the Skrulls which has Ben Mendelsohn‘s in the forefront, Jude Law as Mar-Vell, a returning Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, young Nick Fury, the Kree Starforce, and Carol’s BFF Maria Rambeau (presumably the mother of Monica)!
Off the top of my head, the practical look of the Skrulls is a very interesting surprise. More Shape of Water than the grizzled stylized look in the comics. I can imagine how different they’ll look once the shape-shifting CGI comes in. The Kree Starforce was described as the Seal Team 6 of Space and features Korath before his Who?-ing days with Star-Lord and Gemma Chan‘s Minn-Erva, looking more Gamora than Zoe Saldana has ever looked. Jude Law‘s Mar-Vell, who is interestingly left unnamed in any of the EW reporting, looks hella zen as Carol’s Kree sensei. Favorite part of the batch is seeing Ronan, sans his GOTG warpaint, in his faithful green comic outfit.
We, the MCUExchange team are incredibly overwhelmed at the abundance of information at the moment so we’ll be doing more in-depth breakdowns of the images later on.
