Fans can begin counting down from there along with the Twitter account, which accompanied the image with, "100 days. Marvel Studios' #CaptainMarvel is in theaters March 8, 2019."

The film's release date coincides with 2019's International Women's Day -- unlikely a coincidence, as Carol Danvers will be the first female solo star in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Her debut has been met with much fanfare from both the studio and fans.
