CAPTAIN MARVEL's First Trailer Has an Awesome '90s Action-Thriller Vibe

Captain Marvel

Fans got their first look at Brie Larson as the titular hero in the first official trailer for Captain Marvel

Ending the massive anticipation among fans, Marvel Studios on Tuesday released the first trailer of its upcoming film Captain Marvel. She will return to earth to fight the Skrulls - Marvel villains who have shape-shifting abilities - with Ben Mendelsohn as their leader. In the comics, it's only after a freak accident caused her body to briefly merge with that of Kree soldier Mar-Vell that she transformed into something more.

"It didn't even cross my mind".

Later in the trailer, Captain Marvel experiences numerous flashbacks to her younger years as she tries to piece her life together.

He's just an agent at this point and Captain Marvel is the first superhero he's come into contact with so Jackson has had to start again with his performance in order to reflect a Fury before his MCU debut ten years ago.

"It shows them that they can be as strong as the boys and deserve equal rights".

It is the 90s and Samuel L Jackson's Nick Fury is yet to make his acquaintance with an eye patch, Thanos' finger snap is decades away and Captain America is still in deep freeze. Bron-Char (Rune Temte) and Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan) get a quick background shot - flanking Danvers as members of her Starforce unit, but we also see Jude Law's Walter Lawson.

"It's important they're actually putting a female front and centre as a superhero powerful enough to beat this threat".

When we see Law earlier he is wearing the same type of suit that Danvers is wearing, but later on, we see Brie Larson wearing her red and blue suit.

The movie will mark the penultimate installment of MCU's Phase 3 which concludes with Anthony and Joe Russo's untitled Avengers follow-up to Infinity War next May.

One person posted in response to the clip: "Captain marvel travel [sic] was released and every gay in the Marvel fandom went wild, thats so f***ing valid".

"I'd like to see Monica Rambeau, it would be great to see Photon", she says. It's important, then, to counterbalance that with someone who feels real.
