The Captain Marvel Trailer is Here

The Captain Marvel Trailer is Here

No matter how exciting trailers can be, they always leave us wanting more.

Although details are pretty scarce at the moment, Marvel Studios' president Kevin Feige has previously said Captain Marvel will be the most powerful character they've introduced into the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far, which sounds pretty bloody exciting. What caused her crash? It appears that she has some kind of memory lapse, because Danvers reveals to Nick Fury that she remembers a life on Earth, but can't fully piece it together.

Having the word "her" become the word "hero" seems like a slightly unsubtle way of reminding the audience what the stakes are here for Marvel. In the trailer, you'll see Carol's Starforce teammates Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan) and Att-Lass (Algenis Perez Soto). We all know that DC got there first by actually bothering to make a female-led superhero film (and no, we're not counting Catwoman or Elektra) and Marvel have been embarrassingly slow off the starting line after twenty other blockbusters.

Along with the debut trailer, Marvel Studios also released the very first Captain Marvel poster this morning. She's confused as to where she is, as she undoubtedly came from space. "And I know a renegade soldier when I see one". And she isn't Wonder Woman. The answer might be hidden in the comics.

And even better, we've got a healthy amount of young Nick Fury in this trailer.

There is also a shot of Captain Marvel hung upside down with some machine attached to her head. What is it and what's it doing to the superhero? Now we just have another six months to go before we can see the thing.

"It's hard to explain", Larson's Marvel replies. Finally, it could not be the Psyche-Magnitron at all, but some sort of prison or torture device. Captain Marvel punching that sweet, little old lady on the bus. "I see flashes. I think I had a life here, but I can't tell if it's real". Captain Marvel will spend the film getting to her know her former self, and between that and her alien abilities, she'll be the flawless force to take on the baddies. In the comic books, the Kree uniforms are green.

DUI charges against Mac Miller to be dropped
Powers added that Grande was in regular contact with him about Miller's health. A friend claims that Grande wanted him to be healthy more than anything else.


The Skrulls are an alien species capable of shapeshifting, and the old woman on the bus was likely a Skrull. That... or she's going to have a lot of apologising to do when the grandma wakes up.

Soon enough, we get a montage of various scenes from the movie, including a good look at some of her cosmic duties with a group of Kree, one of which is played by Jude Law.

It isn't long before we see Fury himself, without the eyepatch we've all grown used to over the past 10 years. Surely not harm her. I like that they kept in the story line with her amnesia.

It's Captain Marvel of course!

Captain Marvel hits theaters next year on March 8, 2019.
