captain marvel featurette

It takes a lot of work to be a superhero. You’ve seen Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth’s bodies swell to the size of small mountains, and now Brie Larson is the latest actor to get the intense super-training experience. But instead of just lifting weights, she’s flying jets. As the titular superhero of Captain Marvel, Larson not only has to hold her own in a fight, but she has to be able to pilot an Air Force plane, which is something that she learned while visiting the U.S. Air Force Base prior to filming.

The latest Captain Marvel featurette explores just the kind of training Larson did, and how it affected her performance as Marvel’s first solo female superhero. Read More »

Nick Fury Origin Story

Brie Larson‘s Carol Danvers is, of course, the main focus of Captain Marvel. But the superhero film also has a few familiar MCU faces backing her up – most notably Samuel L. Jackson‘s Nick Fury. Since Captain Marvel is set in the 1990s, we’re going to see a much younger, eyepatch-free Nick Fury. And based on the trailers released, Fury almost looks like Carol’s sidekick in the film, hitting the road with her when she crashes to earth. Does that make Captain Marvel a Nick Fury origin story as much as a Carol Danvers origin story?

captain marvel trailer breakdown

The new Captain Marvel trailer dropped last night, revealing more about the highly anticipated Marvel Studios movie. Though much of the movie still remains a mystery, we’ve picked up more clues about Captain Marvel‘s plot and its hero, played by Brie Larson.

The new trailer depicts Carol’s search for answers, and perhaps something more sinister at play with the team of “noble warrior heroes” that she works with. Let’s dive into the Captain Marvel trailer breakdown.

Before writer Kelly Sue DeConnick took the helm of the Captain Marvel comic books, Carol Danvers was still a superhero who went by the name of Ms. Marvel whose outfit amounted to a leotard with a sash around her waist. But with the start of DeConnick’s 2012 Captain Marvel run, Carol Danvers assumed the mantle of Captain Marvel for the first time in history and cemented herself as one of the most popular characters in Marvel Comics. Fans nicknamed themselves the Carol Corps, rocking Carol’s new signature mohawk helmet and her fully-covering suit at conventions (no more butt cheeks hanging out!).

The upcoming Captain Marvel feature film takes a lot of inspiration from DeConnick’s comic book run. That explains why they brought the writer on as a consultant for the film, as star Brie Larson revealed to us.

Brie Larson Interview

Sitting in a soundstage in Los Angeles, right outside the set of Captain Marvel, Samuel L Jackson pulls up a video on his phone and asks if we want to see “it,” almost like a proud father. He told us:

“A year ago, Brie started working out. And the girl that I did Kong and Unicorn Store with is not this person. She’s like 5 percent body fat now. She used to send me workout videos, which were like, crazy dope workout videos. The first one she sent me, she was lifting… like a hundred pounds. She was doing this thing with the waist-lift, about a hundred pounds. The last one she sent me was 350. She does chin-ups. And she sent me a video of her pushing a Jeep up a hill. It’s pretty amazing stuff.”

The homemade video shows a very muscular Brie Larson pushing a Jeep up a hill. It’s a video that her co-star sent to Jackson in confidence, showing her extreme training for her role in the Marvel movie. In the video, she makes pushing a jeep up a dirt hill look so easy, even though clearly none of the journalists gathered on set could attempt that feat of strength.
