How Captain Marvel Might Just Save the Day in Avengers: Endgame

We're now exactly two months away from getting to meet the MCU's most powerful hero, Carol Danvers.

Captain Marvel will be released in theaters on March 8, 2019.

In the comics, Captain Marvel possesses super strength, the power of flight, durability, the power to absorb energy, and she can shoot photon blasts from her hands. He'll find Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, and the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be born.

The footage opens on Brie Larson's Carol cruising on her motorcycle down an open road before turning into the parking lot of a bar-slash-market-slash-liquor store.

"She's just the beginning", Fury says.

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson, Room) as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. And like, 'Wow, maybe women can actually do the same things that dudes can do. "To be honest, I don't want it to feel different". There, she meets Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury - a young, two-eyed, eyepatch-less Nick that the Captain Marvel digital effects team created by de-aging Jackson in post-production.

"It was in place before we started developing the movie", Feige says. But there's probably some Easter eggs in the rest of it that we haven't found yet, so better to just sit back for a minute and a half. If you can figure out the difference between just a normal trailer and a "special look" then please inform, because I've got nothing here.

As well taking part in a training scene with Jude Law's Kree warrior, there's also our first fleeting look at Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson. At this point, Samuel L. Jackson's Fury is just a low-level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, and Carol's arrival on Earth is his first encounter with the unusual and extraterrestrial.
