Captain Marvel Trailer Breakdown - Brie Larson

The most recent Captain Marvel trailer was packed full of new footage, but it didn’t really give us much in the way plot details. We know the movie finds Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), a human turned Kree, as she’s caught up in a war with the shapeshifting alien race known as Skrulls. That battle ends up making its way to Earth, and it’s up to her to do something about it.

However, the Captain Marvel trailer might give us a little more insight than we previous thought, because one little detail creates a connection to The Avengers that might explain what this war between the Kree and Skrulls is all about. Read More »

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 film follows Carol Danvers, an Air Force pilot who became endowed with incredible cosmic powers and is now part of a cosmic team known as the Starforce. But upon her return to Earth, she realizes that there’s more to her past than she realized.

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.
