Brie Larson is fulfilling her heroic destiny in a new trailer for Captain Marvel.

The Oscar winner, 29, lights up the sky in the latest look at the highly-anticipated Marvel release that gives fans a glimpse at her character, Carol Danvers’, iconic blue and red suit.

Set in the 1990s, the story is a prequel to the popular Marvel films that have followed before. Danvers finds herself and a small team of allies at the center of a maelstrom that reaches Earth as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes.

Samuel L. Jackson returns as a younger version of Nick Fury, who meets Danvers as she sets about on an expedition to discover her roots.
