HALA — Now that “Avengers: Infinity War” has come and gone people are anxious for the Marvel storyline to continue. You’re going to have to wait until May to get the second half of the “Infinity War” saga, but in March you can satiate some of your appetite with an all-new hero to the big screen, “Captain Marvel.”
Comic book fans have been excited for this film because not only is Captain Marvel one of Marvel’s strongest heroes, but it will be the first female-superhero solo movie for the Marvel cinematic universe. Fans are also excited to get the Captain’s origin story after “Infinity War.”
The anticipation is high and now we have a trailer for “Captain Marvel.”
The trailer seems to pitch us a very straightforward origin story, the likes we’ve seen before from Marvel, but there is a slight wrinkle in this one. The opening scene of the trailer shows Captain Marvel (real name Carol Danvers) crash through the roof of a building. The camera then pans down and we see that it’s a Blockbuster, suggesting this origin story is in the past.
We also get a voice track from Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury and then see a much younger Fury working with Danvers. The throwback vibe could be a lot of fun and it’ll be interesting to watch our heroes work in a world without all of Tony Stark’s fancy tech. They’ll have some, but nothing to the level they are working within the “modern day” films.
Overall it looks like “Captain Marvel” could be a lot of fun as Danvers finds herself on Earth battling two different alien races in a galactic war as she struggles to find out or remember who she really is, but something left me wanting.
It’s hard to put my finger on, but the trailer didn’t catch me quite like some of the Marvel universe's other offerings have, but I am looking forward to this one. In addition to all of the other things already mentioned Danvers is portrayed by the incredibly talented and Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson who will undoubtedly do one of the mightiest of mighty heroes justice.
Let us know what you think of the first “Captain Marvel” trailer in the comments. The movie is set to hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
