A Brand New Captain Marvel trailer is here, giving us lots of new footage, a description of the conflict between the Kree and the Skrulls, along with the return of a beloved character: Agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), albeit much younger — he’s been digitally de-aged — given Captain Marvel is set at the’90s, over a decade before we saw Coulson in 2008’s Iron Man.
Brie Larson’s titular hero shows off her photon-blasting skills too, has a sit-down chat with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson, also de-aged), and even trains together with her mentor (Jude Law), who asks her to control”it”, maybe referring to her powers, and give up her past.
The latter is an intriguing command given Carol Danvers (Larson) does not remember her past, as she says in the new Captain Marvel trailer. Part of Danvers’ backstory entails an accident during her US Air Force fighter pilot years, post which she lost her memories however gained skills after her DNA was fused with that of a Kree’s. She ends up functioning in the elite Kree military unit named Starforce, which we first saw in that the Captain Marvel photographs released a few weeks ago. Law’s character, who is either called Mar-Vell or Yon-Rogg — the confusion arises due to contrasting previously-released and subsequently-erased cast info, and leaked images of forthcoming Funko and Hasbro toys — would be the commander of Starforce.
Danvers eventually makes her way back to Earth, where she matches Fury, who is now far, far away out of his ultimate position as manager of S.H.I.E.L.D. Both Fury and Coulson are now rookies. Stan Lee includes a posthumous cameo in the movie.
Captain Marvel will release March 8, 2019 from India and around the globe.
