Brie Larson stars in the latest Captain Marvel trailer.

The 1990s-set film features the Oscar winner as fighter pilot-turned-superhero Carol Danvers – the first female Marvel superhero to get her own standalone movie.

It is also the first Marvel film to be helmed by a woman, and is co-directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

The trailer, which was released during halftime of an NFL game on Monday, gave fans a fresh glimpse into the interplanetary battle key to the film’s plot.

It opens with Larson’s character fighting on a train with what first appears to be an old lady but is later revealed to be a member of an evil alien species called the Skrulls.

The trailer reveals Danvers made a home with the Kree – an advanced alien species – who found her near death and with no memory of her life on Earth after she crash lands on their planet.

She becomes a warrior but wants to learn more about her time on Earth.

A voiceover from Larson says: “I keep having these memories. Something in my past is the key to all of this.”

Samuel L Jackson appears in the role of a young Nick Fury while Jude Law makes a brief cameo.
