AceShowbiz - A new "Captain Marvel" trailer was released during the College Football National Championship on ESPN on Monday night, January 7. Immediately made available online, the video offers new footage, including a look at Carol Danvers' (Brie Larson) military training on Earth as well as her training session with her Kree mentor, played by Jude Law.
Returning to Earth, Carol meets Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), who is still a low-level S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent, and has to convince him that she's not the enemy. She shows off her ability to unleash proton blast, claiming that the Skrulls cannot do that, which prompts Fury to say, "I'm just supposed to take your word for that."
Their playful banters make the trailer more lively, as in another scene Carol mocks Fury for making his covert job so obvious with a S.H.I.E.L.D. cap. "Says the space soldier who's wearing a rubber suit," he claps back.
The video also hints that Carol's arrival marks the beginning of a superhero era. "You think you can find others?" agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) asks. Fury replies, "She's just the beginning." She is later seen in action, taking down alien spaceships.
Based on Marvel Comics, "Captain Marvel" follows Carol Danvers, who was an accomplished Air Force pilot before she left her earthly life behind to join the elite military team Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. Carol is back on Earth when the Skrulls plan an invasion of Earth.
Djimon Hounsou reprises his "Guardians of the Galaxy" role as Korath, Gemma Chan plays Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn stars as the Skrulls leader Talos, Lashana Lynch portrays Carol's old friend Maria "Photon" Rambeau, and Annette Bening joins the cast in an undisclosed role.
Law's role is still kept under wraps, only described as Carol's mentor. Initial guest was that he's playing Walter Lawson / Mar-Vell, but latter speculation said he could play Yon-Rogg, a member of the Kree military force who hates Mar-Vell and makes multiple attempts to disgrace him among the Kree or to outright kill him.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct the movie, which is written by Geneva Robertson-Dworet. It is set for a March 8, 2019 release in the United States.
