Marvel Studios releases a Captain Marvel sneak peek, offering fans a new look at the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe movie introducing Brie Larson as Carol Danvers. Fans of Carol Danvers have been waiting years for her solo movie, originally slated to arrive in 2018 until the addition of Spider-Man and an Ant-Man sequel shifted the MCU slate back. After Captain Marvel was teased in the Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scene, fans have been eagerly awaiting her official debut in the MCU. That will come in the form of the 90s-set Captain Marvel, an origin story for the superhero and a prequel to the majority of the MCU.
Captain Marvel will introduce viewers to Carol Danvers (Larson), a woman who grows up on Earth and becomes a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, but disappears and eventually returns as a member of the elite Kree team known as Starforce and without the memories of her past. She reappears on Earth looking for insight into who she is and looking to end the Kree-Skrull War. Though the full Captain Marvel trailer only released last month, a special sneak peek on ESPN offers a new look at Captain Marvel.
Tonight, during the College Football Playoff National Championship game between the Clemson Tigers and the Alabama Crimson Tide, ESPN debuted both a behind-the-scenes look at Captain Marvel as well as an extended TV spot. Watch the TV spot below.
Captain Marvel will reunite MCU fans with characters like Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) as well as Guardians of the Galaxy's Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and Korath (Djimon Hounsou). The Captain Marvel trailers have also introduced new characters, like Skrull leader Talos (Ben Mendelsohn), Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) and Jude Law's mysterious character. As with previous teasers, the latest look at Captain Marvel focuses on the hero herself, paying particular attention to what brings her to Earth - which is discovering who she truly is and trying to find a way to bring an end to the Kree-Skrull War.
Further, though previous Captain Marvel trailers have offered glimpses of the few returning MCU characters, this latest video largely focuses on Carol's dynamic with Nick Fury. The new extended TV spot features Carol showing off her photon blast for Fury and trying to get him up to speed on the abilities of the Kree and the Skrulls, with the latter alien race being shapeshifters. Plus, the dialogue between Carol and Fury features plenty of the funny quips that have become integral to all the MCU movies. Lastly, the teaser also dives a little deeper into Law's still unconfirmed character, who leads the Starforce and mentors Larson's Carol.
This latest Captain Marvel teaser offers fans a great deal of new footage, which should help to hype up viewers ahead of the movie's early March release. And, now that Captain Marvel tickets are on sale, Marvel Studios will no doubt ramp up promotion for Carol Danvers' solo movie even more.
