Brie Larson is looking ahead to her starring role as Captain Marvel. Although that character will not appear in Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel will headline the first solo female movie of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Captain Marvel will not hit theaters until March 2019, but that did not stop Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige from revealing some concept art at San Diego Comic-Con.

Captain Marvel will not be the first superheroine movie to hit the big screen, as Wonder Woman made a big splash when it hit theaters this summer, and has pulled in a significant amount at the box office in the weeks subsequent to its release.

Larson spoke to EW that she was completely thrilled by the fan response to Captain Marvel so far.

“It feels like such a weight off my shoulders because I really don’t like keeping secrets,” she says. “And the response was really positive, and that felt really cool. I mean, making movies is hard, and making films of that size is even harder. It requires so much physically, and it’s a lot longer shoot, and there’s also the pressure because this is a character that is incredibly inspiring to people and means a lot. So you just want to get it right. I feel really excited about how everything is shaping up.”

Unlike the rest of the major characters in the MCU, Captain Marvel will not be popping up in 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War, meaning fans will not get an early look at Larson’s Carol Danvers the same way Spider-Man fans were afforded a sneak-peek of Tom Holland’s Peter Parker via his appearance in Captain America: Civil War. Captain Marvel fans may have to wait all the way until 2019 to find out if Brie Larson and company have honored their character, but at least they can look forward to a ton of teasers over the coming months.

The plot is still strictly top secret, but Feige did reveal that Samuel L. Jackson will make an appearance in Captain Marvel as Nick Fury and the film’s chief antagonists will be the Skrulls, which are a notorious alien race from the comics. Captain Marvel is slated to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.

Larson can next be seen in The Glass Castle. Based on a memoir, four siblings must learn to take care of themselves as their responsibility-averse, free-spirit parents both inspire and inhibit them. When sober, the children’s brilliant and charismatic father captured their imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Meanwhile, their mother abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want to take on the work of raising a family.
