A Special Peek at Marvel Studios’ ‘Captain Marvel’

Adjust Comment Print

ESPN showcased both a behind-the-scenes look of Captain Marvel as well as an extended special video. Rather than jump right in after the catastrophic events of Avengers: Infinity War, Captain Marvel goes back to the 1990s to officially introduce us to Carol Danvers.

The universe needs saving and it's time for Captain Marvel to enter the fray, which is the MCU's first female-led superhero movie.

Jet on over to your local Alamo Drafthouse for tickets if you're partial to the Drafthouse ambiance, which many of us are. It feels as if the MCU has been teasing the appearance of Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel for a while now.

Captain Marvel's solo movie was originally slated to arrive in 2018, but the additions of Spider-Man and an Ant-Man sequel shifted it to 2019. You can see the trailer below, which reveals some more details behind Carol Danver's training as a Kree as well as more of her interactions with a younger Nick Fury than we've previously seen. Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, it depicts a galactic war between two alien races. That said, I will admit that the young Fury de-aging is the best yet - it's nearly entirely unnoticeable.

The trailer itself gave very little away, seemingly restricting itself to footage from the first act of the movie, and according to Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige, we may have to wait until the film's release before we see anything beyond that.

Captain Marvel stars Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Samuel L Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn (Talos), Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Lee Pace (Ronan), Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva) with Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), and Jude Law (Kree). Tickets are on sale now.
