The first official Captain Marvel trailer just dropped today, and it’s AWESOME!
Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel – Official Trailer by Marvel Entertainment on YouTube
The below reaction is pretty accurate:
Okay, granted, it doesn’t show much yet beyond glimpses. I know nothing of the comic book version of Carol Danvers to begin with, nor do I know whether a rumor saying the movie won’t be dealing with her origin story is true or not. What impressed me, though, is how much the trailer highlighted her determination, standing up time and again after falling down.
It was also great to see younger, sprightlier Nick Fury. Not to mention Coulsooooon!
(As an aside and half-serious at that: as someone who’s going to turn into a little old lady at some point, I hope there’s a darned good reason for Danvers’s punch!)
Last, a LOUD-AS-HELL YAY for no boob armor, nor sexy boob-butt-thigh poses. Frickin’ finally!
The movie opens March 8, 2019. Can’t wait!

Hey, look! We found a thing on the internet! We thought it was cool, and wanted to share it with you.
