Off the bat, the new Captain Marvel trailer assuages all those questions of “why would Carol Danvers punch a nice old lady??” that cropped up after the first look at Brie Larson’s superhero film, with a handy Skrull-versus-Kree explainer. Or, if not a complete explainer, than enough to pique our interests as to the many lives of Carol Danvers and what she has yet to discover about herself.
There’s a lot of “what aren’t you telling me?” in the latest trailer, though it’s unclear if Carol is directing the question at Nick Fury or the “noble warrior heroes” of the Kree. With glimpses of Jude Law and Annette Bening’s characters and a cute li’l cat named Goose (!), plus a lot of blue alien blood, there’s plenty new to mull over here:
