At the beginning of this week, Marvel presented its fans with an early Christmas present, by releasing the new trailer for the upcoming superhero movie “Captain Marvel”.
Set in the 1990s, Carol Danvers coming from a race of noble warriors called Kree, finds herself on Earth, fighting to end the war started by Skrulls, a shapeshifting race (the bad guys!).
Carol (Brie Larson), teams up with our rather familiar and quite younger from what we’re used to, Nick Fury (Samuel L Jackson) who still has two working eyes and whom she fills in about the situation.
A few things are revealed to us from the trailer. Carol has extreme superpowers, that among other things, allow her to fly into space and destroy spaceships, and even though we get a glimpse of the way she got them, we don’t know when and why.
While she is on Earth though, she discovers she has memories of this place (one of which is the knowledge to fly a fighting jet?).
More familiar faces come on stage as we get to see Ronan “the Accuser”(Lee Pace) and Korath ”the Pursuer” (Djimon Hounsou) Kree members, both first seen on “Guardians of the Galaxy” 2014 movie. Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), will also appear in the movie.
“Captain Marvel” has a very large and impressive cast. Along with the characters we have already met and mentioned before, we get to meet some new ones such as Mar-Vell (Jude Law), a Kree commander and Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), the Skrull commander who leads the invasion on Earth.
Actress Annette Bening plays a mysterious character of which we don’t know the name or purpose yet.
This is the first female-led movie in the Marvel cinematic universe. If you wish to learn more about “Captain Marvel” and her journey you can read our article on her origin story here.
Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" will be in theatres on March 8, 2019!
