To build more excitement for the highly anticipated release of Captain Marvel in Dolby 3D, IMAX, and RealD 3D, Marvel Studios unveiled three new posters for the Brie Larson-led superhero movie.

The film’s exclusive artwork for Dolby 3D — which features Larson’s Carol Danvers in her Starforce getup — gives off an old-school vibe, while the exclusive artwork for IMAX and RealD 3D both have a glowy look.

In addition to the posters, Marvel Studios recently dropped a new trailer for the movie during Monday’s College Football Playoff National Championship game between Alabama and Clemson on ESPN.

The one-and-a-half-minute video opens with Danvers meeting up with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury at a restaurant. When the future S.H.I.E.L.D. director asks Danvers about the ongoing alien invasion on Earth, the she points out that the shape-shifting Skrulls are the ones who are infiltrating the human’s home planet. To prove that she is one of the good guys, Danvers casually shows off her amazing powers right in front of the low level bureaucrat. “That’s a proton blast. Skrulls can’t do that,” Danvers explains to Fury.

The trailer also teases the return of Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). In the trailer, Coulson is seen talking to Fury about Danvers in an elevator. While Coulson appeared to die in the first Avengers film in 2012, the character’s appearance in the upcoming movie isn’t really a surprise as events in Captain Marvel take place before the majority of the past MCU films — with the exception of Captain America: The First Avenger, which was set during the Second World War.

In addition to shots showing Danvers fighting in space, the teaser also features Jude Law’s character as the commander of Starforce and Danvers’ mentor.

Directed by longtime collaborators Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel opens in theaters on March 8th.
