The first official "Captain Marvel" trailer dropped on Tuesday morning and fans were not disappointed. This trailer sets the stage for the movie's narrative, giving us a brief look at the conflict Carol Danvers finds herself in the middle of.
Larson previously told Vanity Fair she accepted the part because "I couldn't deny the fact that this movie is everything I care about, everything that's progressive and important and meaningful, and a symbol I wished I would've had growing up".
Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg reprise their roles as S.H.I.E.L.D. members Nick Fury and Phil Coulson, albeit in much younger forms-they'll be digitally de-aged for the movie. "Never occured to me that one might come from above". At first, she is confused about Earth but gradually she realises that she has some connection with the planet.
Fans who were able to watch Avengers: Infinity War over and over were well versed in its post-credit scene. She also had partial-Kree physiology - the Kree being an advanced alien race within the Marvel Comics universe.
The tension-filled trailer ends with Captain Marvel saying: 'I'm not what you think I am'.
The trailer sees Brie meeting Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury after a period of time spent away from planet earth, power up as Captain Marvel and punch a smiling old lady in the face (who is nearly certainly an alien in disguise - we hope).
If she's already got her red gloves, she's already Captain Marvel at that point.
The film is set to be the twenty-first movie in the the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
It feels like we're (being kind and) rewinding a bit, pulling back to see the bigger picture of the MCU that the current Avengers are unaware of, and putting Captain Marvel at the forefront as we move into that new era.
Research: Next she is seen using her thumb to get into a maximum security building.
No really, Carol smacks an old lady in the face with one hell of a fist. Luckily, the wait is getting shorter every day, as Captain Marvel releases in theaters everywhere on March 8, 2019.
