Starring Brie Larson, Captain Marvel is the first female superhero movie from the Marvel conveyor belt: it features ex-pilot Carol Danvers who gains superpowers after an accident and joins an intergalactic team called Starforce.
Fury continues to narrate the footage: "Space invasion, big vehicle chase - truth be told, I was ready to hang it up until I met you today". "I keep having these memories", she says, as scenes and flashbacks mix together of her in battle, in training for the Air Force, and as a little girl. But just before he turned to dust, Fury sent a pager message to Carol Danvers, presumably to summon her back to Earth and help sort everything out in Avengers 4.
Not only does Captain Marvel's arrival illuminate an exciting new corner of the MCU, but she's set to be a pivotal presence in the series moving forward.
Captain Marvel takes place in the 90s, before other MCU films.
There are certain things that trailer needs to show off in order to get us really excited and we've narrowed them down to five things.
But the trailer ends on Carol, generating massive amounts of energy and warning, "I'm not what you think I am". In the post-credits sting of Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury and Maria Hill were scattered to the winds by Thanos' finger-snapping attack.
In addition to the trailer, Marvel and Disney also released the film's first poster, borrowing the tagline from Carol's recent comics run: "Higher".
With Captain Marvel's psychological workings sound like a great way to show her background in a non conventional way.
Some familiar faces will return to "Captain Marvel", such as Clark Gregg's Agent Coulson and Jackson as Nick Fury.
Captain Marvel opens on March 8, 2019.
