Here it is! Disney and Marvel Studios has unleashed the latest ‘Captain Marvel’ trailer. Check it out!
This trailer answers a lot of lingering questions. A few times in it, Carol (Brie Larson) is shown bleeding green blood. But Annette Bening, who had been rumored to be playing Carol’s mother, turns out to play a Kree leader, who informs her that Carol was nearly dead when the Kree found her, but they saved her by giving her a blood transfusion and making her “one of us.”
Last week, a tiny bit of news emerged, that the Kree knew Carol as “Vers.” The trailer seems to confirm this as Carol, in the company of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), finds a broken dog tag, which seems to have broken, leaving just “Carol Dan.” So if the other half of the dog tag was all the Kree had to go on to identify her, it makes sense that they simply called her “Vers.”
As was hinted at in the previous trailer, Carol doesn’t seem to have any recollection of her life on Earth, other than flashbacks which lead her to believe that she might be from Earth after all.
The focus of this new trailer is all on Carol, so there are no revelations about the movie’s villain(s). In fact they only appear in tony clips, mostly in group shots.
Captain Marvel is seen fully suited up, in both the green and red and blue costumes, and both with and without the helmet which leaves her “mohawk” spiking out on top. When she powers up, energy crackles around her body and when she is fully powered up, like when she is in space, her “mohawk” seems to turn into energy.
Finally, though we don’t know how large a role he has, Carol’s cat appears, although Fury seems much more interested in him. In the comics, she calls him Chewie, but reportedly in the film, she names him Goose, perhaps as an homage to ‘Top Gun’. (She is a pilot, after all.) All I know is, Chewie/Goose is getting not one, but two Funko Pop!s, so he must be kind of important.
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
‘Captain Marvel’, directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Jude Law as Yon-Rogg (rumored), Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Gemma Chan and Minn-Erva, Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Samuel L. Jackson as Agent Nick Fury, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, and Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, and arrives in theaters on March 8, 2019.
