The Super Bowl trailer for Captain Marvel is here and it features new footage from the upcoming film! It’ll be fascinating to see how this story plays out. I’ve been hearing some impressive things about some amazing twists and turns, so we’ll have to wait and see when the movie hit the theaters.
The movie is set in 1995 and follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot whose DNA is fused with that of an alien during an accident. The resulting alteration imbues her with the superpowers of strength, energy projection, and flight. The Skrulls will also play a significant part of the story as they will be attacking Earth, and Captain Marvel will either have to battle them or join them.
Captain Marvel is being directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississippi Grind). The most recent script comes from Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider). The film also stars Ben Mendelsohn as the leader of The Skrulls and Jude Law as a mysterious member of the Kree team, Samuel L. Jackson is back as Nick Fury. Clark Gregg will reprise his role as Agent Coulson, and Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou will be back as the Kree villain Ronan the Accuser and his henchman Korath the Pursuer.
Captain Marvel is set to be released on March 8th, 2019.
