Remember in September when there was a slight uproar when the first Captain Marvel trailer landed and we saw our hero punch a smirking old lady in the face? Fans were quick to defend the latest addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe by saying that the old lady was a Skrull in disguise. Well, now those naysayers need to eat some crow because the hardcore fans were definitely onto something.
On Monday (Dec. 3), the long-awaited second trailer for Marvel’s upcoming Captain Marvel debuted during Monday Night Football. The almost-two-and-a-half-minute clip includes some previously seen footage from the upcoming film, like the old lady getting punched, while also giving viewers a better look at Carol Danvers’ backstory.
We get to see how she was recruited by the Kree (she was “saved”), her past life as an Air Force pilot, a conversation between her and Fury about the Skrulls (“So Skrulls are the bad guys?”) and Kree (“noble warrior heroes”), and Fury freaking out when he meets Danvers’ cat Goose (speculations have started that Goose is the reason Fury loses his eye).
But none of that prepares you for the moment when Danvers tells the Skrulls, “I’m not going to fight your war. I’m going to end it.” Cue the chills down your spine.
Watch the latest trailer for Captain Marvel above.
