Captain Marvel Trailer Showcases Brie Larson's New Powers And Cosmic Action
"You're not from 'round here."
This week brought with it the very first trailer for Captain Marvel, and it's a good one. Brie Larson stars in the upcoming Marvel movie, which is set for release in March 2019, just prior to the still-untitled Avengers 4. She is the first female superhero to headline a film within the MCU and is joined by Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, and Ben Mendelsohn.
The trailer opens with Captain Marvel--aka Carol Danvers--falling to Earth, straight into a Blockbuster rental store, which is keeping with the movie's '90s setting. We see flashes of her intergalactic life as part of Starforce, and then how she comes to terms with a new life on Earth--which includes punching an old lady. The trailer doesn't really give much away in terms of plot, but we do see some of her powers and the main characters, including Mar-Vell (Law) and a younger, eyepatch-free Nick Fury (Jackson). Check it out above.
This trailer follows the first batch of images that were released earlier this month. Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and the cast also includes DeWanda Wise (She's Gotta Have It), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them), Lee Pace (Halt and Catch Fire), and Clark Gregg, who is making his return to the MCU as SHIELD Agent Phil Coulson.
Earlier this month, Larson told Entertainment Weekly what we can expect from her character. "She can't help but be herself," she said. "She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She's also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she's the first one out there and doesn't always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw."
