New Captain Marvel trailer digs into the movie’s big mystery

More Skrulls, more Carol Danvers in action, more one-liners

Captain Marvel has a brand new trailer, which debuted during the College Football National Championship game, and it might be the most “Marvel” trailer of them all.

The trailer opens with Carol Danvers giving us our first full explanation of who the shape shifting Skrull are and why she’s punching that old lady on the train, as she tells Nick Fury that an alien invasion is on the way. The trailer also gives us a little bit of time with Carol fighting in space, some training with Jude Law and even a little bit of light barbing at the first iteration of Fury’s S.H.I.E.L.D logo.

Just like in previous trailers, this one also gave us brief glimpses of some of the film’s other characters who aren’t named Nick Fury and Carol Danvers, but it still didn’t tell us much about them. We still really don’t know who Annette Bening is playing in the movie, plus there was no Goose!

The new trailer is our first new look at a Marvel movie to come in 2019, and our first since Marvel showed off the Avengers: Endgame trailer back in December of last year. While Carol Danvers is confirmed to play a role in Endgame, the trailers for Captain Marvel have kept her Avengers role a complete mystery. We likely won’t know until the movie is released, or maybe even until Endgame itself comes out on April 27.

Captain Marvel is coming to theaters on March 8.
