The latest poster for Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel solo movie features Carol Danvers' superhero alter ego in her classic red and blue suit. It's been a big week for the MCU. On Monday night, thousands of people who don't normally watch sports tuned in to ESPN's Monday Night Football in order to be one of the first to see the second trailer for Captain Marvel. Then, Friday morning played host to the epic arrival of the trailer for Avengers: Endgame, an event anticipated for months. While the trailer for Spider-Man: Far From Home didn't end up making its way online today as previously reported, it did at least screen for those in attendance at CCXP in Brazil.
Now that the big week has ended, one shouldn't expect the amount of MCU promo material to decrease by much. Captain Marvel's theatrical release is only three months away, meaning the marketing for Marvel Studios' first female-led solo film is only just starting to get going. Plus, with Avengers: Endgame's U.S. release date getting pushed forward to April 26, the culmination to the MCU's journey so far is now less than five months away from being unveiled to the world.
With that in mind, it's not much of a surprise that Marvel Entertainment chose this weekend's CCXP festivities to release a new poster for Captain Marvel, featuring the titular hero adorned in her traditional red, blue, and gold costume. The poster can be seen in all its colorful glory below.
Much has been made about the fact that - based on the trailers and previously released imagery - Carol spends a lot of Captain Marvel dressed in a green, black, and silver Kree Starforce uniform, although it now seems pretty clear that she'll have switched to her classic color scheme by at least the film's third act. Why exactly she makes the switch remains to be seen, but there are several plausible theories, including that Carol abandons her Kree look after discovering that the alien race isn't quite as benevolent as she believed.
Despite Captain Marvel not appearing in the trailer for Avengers: Endgame, it's previously been teased that she'll become the most powerful hero in the entire MCU. It seems logical that she'll end up saving Tony Stark before he can die in space, and may even be the character that personally deals the death blow to Thanos, assuming the Mad Titan doesn't survive the film. Before she gets there though, she needs to tangle with the Skrulls in March first.
