The release of Captain Marvel is just two months away, and Marvel Studios is stoking the excitement with an extended “special look” at the upcoming film. We learn that Carole Danvers seems to have her very own “Iron Fist” and catch glimpses of a Skrull mid-shapeshift, as well as a young Agent Coulson.
By now we know that Captain Marvel will be set in the 1990s, long before the infamous “Snappening” at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. She falls from the sky and lands in a Blockbuster Video and soon draws the attention of a young Nick Fury (all hail the power of CGI and Samuel L. Jackson). We also learned from prior trailers that she had a life on Earth as a pilot with the military. She was rescued, near death, by the Kree after her aircraft crashed. Left with no memories, they made her one of them so she “could live longer, stronger, superior.”
Carole is rocking a grunge/biker look in this latest trailer, debriefing Nick Fury in a dive bar about the Skrulls’ invasion of Earth. They’re a shape-shifting alien species, and we get to see that process in action here, as a Skrull takes on the form of an unsuspecting surfer. She’s here to fight them, evidenced by the infamous subway scene where she beats up a seemingly sweet old granny (really a Skrull in disguise).
