The First 'Captain Marvel' Trailer Is Here!

Share

Truth be told, it's one of the most interesting trailers Marvel has released; filled with intrigue, action, and old lady punching.

The movie will mark the penultimate installment of MCU's Phase 3 which concludes with Anthony and Joe Russo's untitled Avengers follow-up to Infinity War next May.

As we learned from a previous piece from Entertainment Weekly, Captain Marvel won't feature your traditional origin story.

Here are three things you may have missed in the Captain Marvel trailer. As can be seen in the opening seconds of the trailer, she is clearly impervious to most damage.

From there, Captain Marvel runs into Samuel L. Jackson de-aged 25 years as the young Nick Fury, whose first alien encounter happens to be Carol Danvers. Here's the trailer. It looks alright.

We already knew S.H.I.E.L.D. would play a role in the movie, with younger versions of Nick Fury and Agent Coulson in key roles. In the clip, Danvers says she doesn't remember her life before gaining her Captain Marvel powers. In the trailer, you'll see Carol's Starforce teammates Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan) and Att-Lass (Algenis Perez Soto). I see flashes. I think I have a life here. Falling from space through a Blockbuster Video would kill any normal human. But she hasn't worn that logo for long; Carol Danvers (the Air Force pilot-turned-cosmic hero played by Larson) was only promoted to Captain Marvel in the comics in 2012. The trailer is likely intentionally a bit blurry at this point - making clear stills really hard - as the digital effects won't be finished for months yet, but the first impression is actually pretty incredible. Larson is in disguise in plain clothes with a hat on. When she crash-lands on Earth, Larson's Captain Marvel is in possession of her powers but has little memory of her time on Earth. "And those two sides warring against each other is what makes her her". The Kree are an advanced alien species that we find her working with as part of their elite military squad Starforce to defend the Kree Empire.

"She's more powerful than, possibly, all The Avengers combined", says Claire Lim, a huge comic book fan and a presenter for BBC's The Social. The film is written and directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, Marvel's first female director. And then we see this. Going with the Kree colors and uniform is a great idea. All of the Marvel characters have flaws to them, all of them have a deep humanity to them.

You saw the first tantalizing hints about her at the end of "Avengers: Infinity War".

It's been worth the wait. We unpack some of the best, and most revealing, moments.
