We got our first look at Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel earlier today, and now new images from the movie are rolling out from Entertainment Weekly, giving glimpses of the other actors and characters that featured in the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Notably, Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has been digitally de-aged to look 25 years younger (the movie takes place in the ’90s, hence a younger, eyepatch-less Fury). According to details in EW’s story, Captain Marvel’s Nick Fury is not yet the fearless leader of S.H.I.E.L.D., but a mere desk jockey.

Also featured is Jude Law’s character, Mar-Vell (aka Walter Lawson), Captain Marvel’s mentor and leader of the elite military team known as Starforce, and an army of Skrull warriors storming a beach (looking a little like Planet of the Apes, but galactic).

Unlike typical origin stories, Captain Marvel is skipping past the whole “how’d she get the powers” arc, instead jumping right to a time when a super Carol Danvers joins Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. Marvel fans will recognize the Kree from Guardians of the Galaxyand both Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou are returning as their respective Kree characters.

Check out the first pictures of Captain Marvel below:

Captain Marvel is set for a March 8, 2019, release.
