‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer #2 (With Much More Smiling!)

Much ado was made over the September debut trailer for ‘Captain Marvel’, the 21st Marvel Cinematic Universe film which will be released on March 8, 2019, especially the lack of any smiling from the lead star. We’re pleased to report that the emotions firmware update has been implemented in the latest trailer, released earlier today.

Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel - Trailer 2

Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019. That’s a few months before “Part 2” of the Avengers/Thanos conflict, Avengers 4 (title TBA) on May 3, 2019.

Captain Marvel is the story of Carol Danvers, a U.S. Air Force Officer who becomes the superhero Captain Marvel. On Earth, Carol is a hot-shot pilot, but when she’s flung deep into space, she joins Starforce, an elite military force of the alien Kree empire. The Kree were first seen in 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy via Ronan the Accuser, a Kree extremist.

In the process of joining Starforce, Carol Danvers’ biology melds with Kree DNA, effectively turning her into a hybrid. She loses her memory, and Captain Marvel will partially be about Carol rediscovering her human heritage.

In a red carpet interview at the Britannia Awards on October 26, 2018, Marvel boss Kevin Feige explained that Captain Marvel is a “different” superhero origin story than fans of the genre have seen before, even from Marvel.

As for Marvel Studios, they have $152 million dollars riding on this film, so it needs to connect with filmgoers and fans, not just diversity critics.
