Entertainment Weekly's latest cover story drops a huge first look at the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Captain Marvel, showing off star Brie Larson in full-on superhero glory.

Set in the 1990s, the origin story follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.

EW's feature includes a gallery of ten exclusive images from Captain Marvel -- including our first glimpse of Gemma Chan as the very blue, rather badass-looking alien Minn-Erva.

In the comic books, the character is a Kree geneticist and spy with superpowers similar to Captain Marvel. According to EW, Minn-Erva is a member of the elite military team known as Starforce, alongside Danvers.

A few months back, in celebration of wrapping shooting on Captain Marvel, Chan tweeted an on-set photo of herself. But it was only a slight whisper of a hint of her actual look in the movie.

Chan can currently be seen as the glamorous Astrid Leong in the wildly successful Crazy Rich Asians. While doing promotion for the movie, she was inevitably asked about her role in Captain Marvel, but remained pretty tight-lipped about any details, for fear of, you know, getting murdered by Marvel. So we still don't know a lot about her character. But damn, based on this photo, she looks amaaaaaazing.

Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8, 2019.
