When Will Captain Marvel's Trailer Release?

When will the first trailer for Captain Marvel release? Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck's Marvel Studios movie is due to release in March next year, but aside the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War the marketing push for Carol Danvers' solo movie has yet to begin. It's normal for a studio to begin the marketing push for a blockbuster some seven or eight months before theatrical release, and with the film well into production, that means MCU fans are expecting a Captain Marvel trailer to drop fairly soon.

There's a lot of excitement about next year's Captain Marvel. It's the first movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to star a female superhero, with Marvel hoping Brie Larson's titular hero will be as successful as DC's Wonder Woman. Kevin Feige gave a sense of just how important Captain Marvel will be when he noted that she's "as powerful a character as we've ever put in a movie." The character is then expected to become a key player in next year's Avengers 4, setting her up for a major role in the post-Phase 3 MCU.

So, about that Captain Marvel trailer. The first Black Panther trailer released on June 9, 2017 ahead of a February 2018 release. Given Captain Marvel is due to release in March next year, it can be expected for that movie's trailer to drop within the next month. Marvel's next movie - Ant-Man & the Wasp - releases on July 6, during this period, and so it would seem logical for Marvel to drop the high-profile trailer for Captain Marvel with that film. The most likely release date for the trailer is in the week before, commencing June 25 - just a fortnight away.

It's important to remember that this first trailer will just be a "teaser", meaning it'll be more a taste of the film rather than a proper plot reveal. Nevertheless, Marvel don't tend to release even a teaser trailer until they're happy with it, meaning there's surely going to be some visual spectacle.

Marvel do often tend to release trailers at major events, and as a result right now fans are getting excited about the possibility the Captain Marvel teaser trailer will drop at CineEurope on Wednesday. While some footage could stream, it's highly unlikely it would come alongside an official release. Marvel has never released a major trailer at CineEurope before, so while the studio may well release some footage or concept art at CineEurope, that doesn't mean much for the wider fanbase. Anything major from this year's San Diego Comic-Con in mid-July is also unlikely given Marvel's sitting out Hall H in 2018.
