Captain Marvel Trailer Breakdown: 15 Things You Need To See

Posted September 20, 2018

Not only does this give longtime comic fans a chance to finally see why she's been away from Earth and learn how she might impact Avengers 4, but it also gives newer, curious fans a chance to join in the fun.

Star Wars and Ready Player One villain Ben Mendelsohn will play Talos, the shape-shifting leader of the Skrulls who is planning to invade Earth.

And it looks like the film will develop the relationship between Fury and Captain Marvel further. As expected, fans on Twitter are going wild over the trailer and are hoping the months fly by for Marvel Studio's next big hit.

Captain Marvel stars Academy Award® victor Brie Larson (Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel), Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury), Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou (Korath), Lee Pace (Ronan), Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan (Minn-Erva), Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, Kenneth Mitchell (Joseph Danvers), with Clark Gregg (Phil Coulson), and Jude Law (Marv-Vell). However, when she returns she finds herself questioning her past. Of course, while we know she'll be working with S.H.I.E.L.D., she won't be a full-fledged agent.

Captain Marvel will take place during the '90s, so you can expect to see a few nostalgic things like a Blockbuster Video, references to Nine Inch Nails, and a young two-eyed Nick Fury, who has not met either Captain America or Iron Man. And it's amusing to hear him say things like "space invasion" and "big vehicle chase" as if he knew he was going to experience them in the future. "So you're not from around here", Fury says to Danvers.

"It's hard to explain", Larson's Marvel replies. "I keep having these memories. I see flashes. I think I had a life here, but I can't tell if it's real".

Freeze-frame analysis of the trailer also shows that we'll be getting scenes of Danvers' civilian forces training, as well as her time in an alien city (which could be the Kree planet of Hala?).
