Captain Marvel is the highly anticipated Marvel Studios superhero movie we’ve been waiting for and is set to be the next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The official movie trailer was released Tuesday and we catch a glance of Brie Larson in action as Carol Danvers.

The film is Marvel Studio’s first female-led superhero movie. The film has been in development since as early as 2013 and now, five years later, we’re finally getting a first look at the official trailer.

Marvel Cinematic Universe fans have been waiting to see footage from the film since the first images of Brie Larson’s costume were revealed earlier this year.

The film is set in the 1990s and we get to see this in the trailer when Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) falls from space and crashes through the roof of a Blockbuster video store.

Here’s what we know so far about Marvel Studio’s first standalone superhero film starring a woman.
