‘Captain Marvel’ Special Preview Video: Hope Begins With Her
Tuesday, January 8th, 2019 at 10:00 am
By March of this year, the world will know who Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is when Captain Marvel is released. Though Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) sent out a distress signal to her in Avengers: Infinity War, we still don’t know much about one of the most powerful female superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, her standalone film will explain her origins and hopefully tell us why she has been missing for the better part of 10 years.
We won’t get that answer in any of the trailers, however, this new special preview video should be enough to hold us over until the film’s release in March. Check it out below.
Danvers’ history is still a secret to both the audience and the character herself. Although, it looks like it will be up to a much younger Nick Fury to act as her guide on Earth and find out the truth about her and her Kree alien powers. But he isn’t the only character from the MCU to be making a return. Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg), Ronan (Lee Pace), and Korath (Djimon Hounsou) will also reprise their respective roles.
This preview also gives us another chance to look at the Kree alien peacekeeping force. Additionally, we get to see another moment between Danvers and Jude Law‘s mysterious character. Many are speculating that he will play Captain Mar-vell. And as a twist, there’s a rumor that he will be playing the villain. We’ll just have to wait and see.
Here’s the official plot synopsis:
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
The film also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto, Mckenna Grace, and Annette Bening.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel opens in theaters March 8, 2019.
