Watch: New ‘Captain Marvel’ trailer touches on Skrulls, teases the Avengers Initiative

A month after giving fans the second official trailer for the forthcoming “Captain Marvel” film, Disney has unleashed yet another new look at the upcoming flick. On Monday (Jan. 7), the House of Mouse released a new “special look” at the highly anticipated new movie during Monday’s college football National Championship on ESPN.

The minute-and-a-half clip begins with Nick Fury telling Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel that grunge is a good look for her prompting her to respond just as sarcastically by asking if he had a rough day at work. As their conversation in a deserted bar picks up, Fury asks Carol for more information about this supposed space invasion. She answers by telling him a bit about the Skrulls and how they are shapeshifters just like the old lady she knocked out in the first look we got back in September.

Fury, a little (or very) apprehensive, asks Carol to prove that she’s not a Skrull. Of course that results in the poor unsuspecting record player getting blown up thanks to her photon blast. The new teaser also gives Jude Law’s character a bigger presence in the clip, even though it’s just him training Carol to be a Kree warrior. While Disney and Marvel have yet to confirm the identity of Law’s character, fans have been speculating for some time that he will play Captain Mar-Vell. At one point there was confirmation, but Disney withdrew it quickly after.

If that wasn’t enough information in a one-minute time span, then there might be an Avengers Initiative Easter egg lurking around the one-minute mark. Young Phil Coulson is briefly shown with his voice asking Fury “You think you can find others?” Fury responds with “She’s just the beginning.”

“Captain Marvel” flies into theaters on March 8, 2019. Tickets are currently available on Fandango.

Watch: Captain Marvel takes flight in new trailer

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.

Marvel Studios Unveil “Phase Three”

avengers2012

Looks like the three seconds in the limelight DC Comics had gotten last week when they revealed their long list of upcoming superhero films has now been sidetracked by Marvel.

In an event held today, the brains behind Marvel Studios and Disney have revealed the list of superhero flicks that will be rivaling DC’s.

The eight films will include Captain Marvel, Inhumans, a stand alone film for Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) who will play a large role in Captain America, as well as the final films for both the Avengers and Thor. Unlike the final Thor film, the final Avengers film will be split into two part; one released in 2018 and the other for 2019.

Check out the upcoming Marvel films and their projected release dates.

UPCOMING MARVEL STUDIOS FILMS:

Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016)
Doctor Strange (Nov. 4, 2016)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5, 2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (July 27, 2017)
Black Panther (Nov. 3, 2017)
Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 (May 4, 2018)
Captain Marvel (July 6, 2018)
Inhumans (Nov. 2, 2018)
Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (May 3, 2019)

Also revealed, or not revealed at the press event, the identity of who will play the high-publicized role of Stephen Vincent Strange or as well all know him, Doctor Strange.

For the past 24-hours, rumors had been circulating that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch had been chosen for the role that many actors had been “attached” to.

Sadly, the confirmation many media outlets were trying to get did not come. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told reporters that if Cumberbatch has been chosen to play the role, then they would have announced it at today’s event.

But then again, what Feige said might just be a way to take all the attention away from that so when they do confirm it, it will be a surprise.
