The Marvel-ous New 'Captain Marvel' Trailer Has Us Wishing We Can Fast-Forward to March!
by Brooke Sharland
Okay, so the new trailer for Captain Marvel dropped this week and all I have to say is… can it be March NOW?!
By the looks of it, we are getting a FULL origin story on just how Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) became the Kree superhero known to the world as Captain Marvel.
At the beginning of the trailer, we see Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) explaining that the bad guys are the Skrulls (one of them being disguised as an old woman on the rail -- she and Captain Marvel get into QUITE the scuffle) and that Carol is a Kree, a “race of noble warriors”, to which Carol replies, “Noble warrior heroes.” YESSSSS. Absolutely.
We then get a glimpse into the origin story. Captain Marvel’s life began the day it nearly ended when she was found with no memory. She was made a Kree so she could live longer, stronger, and superior. Essentially, she was “reborn”. But you see Carol start to have little flashbacks and memories here and there of her old life, and she wants to put the pieces back together and figure it all out. She thinks something in her past is the key to everything that’s going on with her now. She knows she had a life on Earth before, but there’s something she’s not being told...
She looks badass as HECK flying a jet with Nick Fury after he questions if she knows what she’s doing. Clearly, she does.
“You’ve come a long way, but you’re not as strong as you think,” says Jude Law’s character Walter Lawson. UM, miss me with that negativity.
Our resident bad guy Skrull tells Captain Marvel that the war is just beginning, to which she replies, “I’m not gonna fight your war. I’m gonna end it.” Honestly, I have chills.
After seeing a couple shots of Captain Marvel proving she’s totally the coolest superhero with the coolest powers ever, we see one of my favorite moments of the trailer: Nick Fury petting and talking to a cat. It was adorable.
Okay, it’s confirmed. I think Captain Marvel might be my new favorite Marvel superhero and her movie isn’t even out until next year. I say we skip Christmas and get right to the Marvel-ous-ness. Who's with me?!
Captain Marvel comes to theaters March 8, 2019.
