Marvel Studios unveiled the second trailer for the upcoming superhero film, Captain Marvel, during Monday Night Football. Yes, she's from Earth but she doesn't remember her life as U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Carol Danvers beyond mere flashes. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.
Captain Marvel will hit cinemas in March next year, while Larson will also appear in the next Avengers instalment which is scheduled for release in May. Already, the film has to introduce a character advertised as essential in the events ofAvengers 4, but the film must also push the boundaries of the MCU to present a whole new threat, the Skrulls, as well as new heroes.
Fans will only know for sure when the movie is released next spring. There are some teases of big action sequences and Captain Marvel's origin, but the trailer doesn't actually do much to tell us what this movie is, for better or worse. But, while Avengers 4 is shrouded in what is most likely the most secrecy in cinematic history, Marvel Studios aren't letting much slip on the Captain Marvel front, either. Hollywood veteran Samuel L Jackson plays her support system and their chemistry will make you chuckle.
We did like the mini reveals the trailer gave us; the hint about Jude Law's character being a Kree villain, the easter egg of Fury meeting Carol's cat (which could be an alien!) and of course, Marvel's binary form.
And then we watched as Nick Fury spent an endless amount of time in adorable softie mode while petting her, to the point where Carol had to remind him that they had to go.
According to Larson, Danvers isn't the only strong female lead in the film or in the actor's life. Viewers of Guardians of the Galaxy will be familiar with that race since the antagonist in that movie, Ronan the Accuser is one.
The trailer ends with a number of shots showcasing the true power that Captain Marvel can harness and unleash upon her enemies. "We made you one of us".
