We also get a glimpse of Jude Law, who is either playing the original Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell, or Yon-Rogg, a Kree military commander, or just a regular old Starforce Commander.

A series of reports said in recent days that a new Captain Marvel trailer and the first Avengers 4 trailer would be released on Monday and Wednesday, respectively.

Brie Larson packs a punch in the first female-led Captain Marvel film. It stars Brie Larson in the title role as Carol Danvers alongside Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson.

We did not expect this turn of events, but we enthusiastically accept the new reality where we all relate to Nick Fury.


Alongside the hints that what she knows isn't the full or true story, it suggests that the transformation of Carol Danvers into a Kree warrior is going to be a crucial part of the narrative, even if it's told through flashback. There have been some brief instances of brainwashing and some typical comic book flavored stakes involving memory loss and time travel, but nothing that would really necessitate her origin involve her not remembering Earth.

"She's insane strong", Larson said during the Sun's visit to the set of Captain Marvel this past summer.

"Something in my past is the key to all of this", she says.

We know that aside from Fury paging Captain Marvel at the end of Infinity War, two characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy - Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Korath the Pursuer (Djimon Hounsou) - also appear in the film. But given that all three Marvel films will launch next year starting with Captain Marvel in early March, Avengers 4 in late April/early March, and Far From Home in early July, it would make sense for the first trailer to be released after the first Avengers 4 trailer debuts. There are a couple of downsides, but mostly it feels like Marvel are holding back on this one, and that means we're left with a lot of questions.
