New ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer: Carol Danvers Ends the Kree-Skrull War

Captain Marvel
The initial trailer for Captain Marvel emphasized that the title hero is someone who couldn’t remember her own past, implicitly because something was suppressing her memories after she got superpowers. Now, the most recent trailer goes into more of how Carol Danvers became part of the war between the Kree and the Skrulls, the past of S.H.I.E.L.D., and why she’s Nick Fury’s last line of defense in the event of a crisis.

 

The new trailer features some of the same material as the first one, but puts it into better context. It’s made clear that Captain Marvel’s origin involves being made into a Kree warrior through some kind of accident and experimentation. Lots of cosmic and Earth-based action scenes ensue, along with a brief look at a side of Nick Fury that we’re not accustomed to. You can view the trailer below:

 

 

Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, based on a screenplay they co-wrote with Geneva Robertson-Dworet and Jac Schaeffer. The movie stars Brie Larson, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, Mckenna Grace, and Clark Gregg. The film’s synopsis is as follows:

“Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.”

The film will take inspiration from the Kree-Skrull War story arc from the comics, albeit without the Avengers present in the story. Instead, the movie will focus on Captain Marvel and her allies assisting S.H.I.E.L.D. with thwarting a Skrull invasion, allowing her to meet up with Nick Fury and Phil Coulson early on in their careers as agents of the organization. The film, being set before every Marvel Studios film other than Captain America: The First Avenger (which was set in the 1940s), also features a number of things tying the Captain Marvel mythology to prior movies like 2008’s Iron Man, 2012’s The Avengers, and 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, to name a few.

 

Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019.
