We all know the new Captain Marvel movie starring Brie Larson is premiering on March 8, 2019, right? And as that date gets closer and closer, it becomes harder and harder to hold in our excitement. Larson herself sent the fandom into overdrive this past Tuesday, September 4, when she posted this cryptic tweet:


Almost as if they had this planned all along, Entertainment Weekly quickly responded:

Captain Marvel fans the world over suspected something big was about to drop!





Fans' patience quickly reached a breaking point...


And just when it seemed they couldn't wait any longer...the pictures arrived!


It turns out EW reporter Devan Coggan has had the inside scoop on Carol Danvers (aka Captain Marvel) for weeks!


Fans also got to take a look at some of Danvers' supporting characters!



Fans were VERY on board.





Of course, these pictures made true Marvel-heads more excited for upcoming trailers...


Could the Captain Marvel movie be based on Marvel's infamous Secret Invasion stories?



I guess all we can do now is hunker down and wait for March.
