Marvel Studios has released the first official trailer for the next installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain Marvel. Brie Larson, who will portray the iconic Marvel hero, debuted the first trailer during her surprise appearance on Good Morning America.
There’s obviously a lot to unpack in this first trailer, starting with the opening moment. We see Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers falling from the sky and crashing into a blockbuster video, telling us immediately that this film doesn’t take place in 2018.
The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson (Carol Danvers), Jude Law (Mar-Vell), Gemma Chan (Doctor Minerva), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), Lee Pace (Ronan) and Djimon Hounsou (Korath the Pursuer).
