Brie Larson kicks ass in new 'Captain Marvel' trailer

Captain America Avengers Endgame Winter Soldier

"Monday Night Football" likely had lots of new viewers last night, as Marvel Studios dropped a new trailer to its upcoming "Captain Marvel" blockbuster during halftime of the game between the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles on ESPN.

Newer reveals in the trailer include Annette Bening as the Kree who saved Danvers, a US air force pilot, and invested her with the alien powers that turn her into Captain Marvel. The story of the perpetual war between the two alien races is pretty popular among comic-book readers for its large cast of characters from multiple Marvel franchises, and an epic, long-form story.

Why it matters: "Captain Marvel" promises to be an important film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After an accident, she was found by the Kree, an alien race, who fused her DNA with their own, making her the powerful titular superhero. Are you excited to see Captain Marvel?




Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is about Carol Danvers, a former US Air Force pilot who joins the elite Kree military team called Starforce. And with this taking place largely in the 1980s - with CGI-young Samuel L. Jackson looking fierce as Agent Nick Fury - we can only imagine how it could reconfigure much of what we've already seen. To which Danvers offers a gentle correction: "Heroes", she says, "noble warrior heroes".

Having portrayed the character of Jane in 2011's Thor and 2013's Thor: The Dark World, Portman stated back in 2016 that she believed she was "done" with the MCU, although she did tease the possibility of a return for "an Avengers 7 or whatever". Still, Marvel Studios has made bigger leaps with lesser known characters before - and Bening is a prestigious enough actor to accomodate with that kind of change.

Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, who also contributed to writing the script, directs. It just so happens that an elderly grandma is one of Captain Marvel's "sprawls" or enemies, and Captain Marvel proceeds to punch her in the face and start a battle during rush hour.
