Marvel has just released the new Captain Marvel trailer. It first debuted on Good Morning America and eventually made it to YouTube.
Spoilers: If you haven’t watched Infinity war yet
The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe follows up from the last MCU movie. If you don’t know what we’re talking about, watch this.
Nick Fury, before disintegrating into dust like many others, sends out a page. The device shows Captain Marvel’s logo from the comics and then the movie ends. The new Captain Marvel movie picks up right after that. The trailer shows Brie Larson in Carol Danvers’ costume. Carol is the alter ego of the titular heroine Captain Marvel.
Not an origin story
The trailer clearly shows that Captain Marvel already has her comic-book powers. At least, most of them. She has already left earth to join the Starforce. The team is led by a character played by Judd Law. Ronan the Accuser, played by Lee Pace, can also be seen.
Set in the 90’s
The film is clearly set in the 90’s. We see a much younger and much less bitter Nick Fury, still without an eyepatch. A very young Agent Coulson can also be spotted. The film trailer shows shots of Carol being in the military. The trailer also shows a few shots of Carol’s family.
Carol comes back to earth
It’s alluded in the trailer that Carol has recently come back to her home planet. According to her, some of her memories of her time there is still there. Yet she seems to have lost a few during her time as a member of the Starforce.
If the Infinity War end credit scene was anything to go by, Carol will have a big role to play. She seems to be the person contacted by Nick Fury shortly before turning to ashes. If that’s the case, then she is sure to be one of the big players in the next Avengers movie.
We’re all excited for the first ever Captain Marvel movie. Tell us in the comments how you feel about a superhero film with a female lead. Not made by DC, of course.
