Brie Larson's Carol Danvers might turn into the Earth's mightiest hero, but it looks like Captain Marvel is going to be pretty cosmic when it hits cinemas next year.

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige just recently spoke with Total Film (via CBR) to discuss the studio's upcoming female-led comic book movie, and during the interview with the publication, the executive confirmed that a sizeable portion of Captain Marvel is actually going to take place up in outer space.

"Much of the movie takes place in outer space," Feige told the publication.

"She's so, so strong. She can move planets!" Larson chimed in during the interview.

The Marvel Studios President also says that Larson's first standalone movie as Carol Danvers is taking note from some of the greatest science-fiction movies of the 90s – which barely comes as a surprise knowing the origin of Captain Marvel.

For those who aren't familiar with the character (and we doubt that that the readers coming across this article don't have a clue who Captain Marvel is), Carol Danvers first starts out as a United States Air Force officer. However, after her DNA was fused with a Kree's during an explosion, she gains superhuman powers and becomes "Marvel's biggest female hero."

The thought of Captain Marvel flexing her muscles in space sounds pretty exciting and we definitely can't wait to see what Marvel has in store for us.

Captain Marvel hits cinemas March 8, 2019.
