The title says it all. This featurette really does set the stage for Captain Marvel. It felt like that opening scene for Romeo & Juliet, "In fair Verona where we lay our scene..." Anyone who just don't know what to expect at all, can pretty much get the whole of it right here. So if you're only into these Marvel movies, & don't really know anything else about comics, this featurette is for you.
First was the Superbowl TV spot for Avengers: Endgame . Now we get another for Captain Marvel . Matching the same intensity of the Endgame trailer, jamming a whole lot into 30 seconds, & at the same time not showing much more than we've already seen. In fact, besides Coulson & Fury going airborne, I could only catch scenes we've already seen. Maybe stretched out one way or another, but nothing really new. The quick scene jump is really working for these though. It delivers in 30 seconds a more appealing trailer than we've got in all the longer ones in my opinion. Both these trailers seem to have an intensity to them that let's you know something big is going down. If you can't tell I really dug this look. Even if it was missing Goose the cat. What'd y'all think? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Marvel Studios released a new film clip from Captain Marvel, & in all honesty, it just seems like a strange clip to release. It's dead in the middle of a multiple chase scene. Young Nick Fury & Phil Coulson are chasing Captain Marvel as she's chasing what is most likely an undercover Skrull. It's probably very early in the film, due to her wearing her StarForce colors & not the blue, red, & gold costume, but it's just an odd snippet. It starts from nothing & pretty much ends from nothing. I do think it's awesome how much this looks like a throwback to the more modern-era Marvel films. It totally has a 90s vibe to the look of everything. Hell, it almost even looks like it was filmed in the 90s. Anyway, beings there's no context the clip really, it's neither good nor bad in my book. Just a strange clip to release once again. What do y'all think? As movie advertisement, would this steer you one way or the other? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
This was one of the most insane featurettes I've seen Marvel do so far. Mainly because you get a glimpse of the 9+ month workout regimen it took to become Captain Marvel . We tend to forget what these actors/actresses have to go through to become our super heroes. Even this small look made me tired just watching. Like most of these featurettes, you also get a synopsis of the character, along with some behind the scenes with the actors & directors, & a couple quick shots that weren't in the trailers. Some of the quick scenes definitely should've hit the trailer. If that special look earlier didn't have me on board, this definitely did. I've already got my tickets for opening day. Had a little trouble too. If you're in a big area like I am, theaters are filling up fast. Major respect to those involved after seeing this though. Especially Larson, it sounds like she went through a lot for this one. Thoughts? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Captain Marvel has had its ups & downs with me so far. In the last trailers I mentioned that "powered up" she looked awesome, but otherwise Brie Larson just looked kinda bored. On top of that Samuel L Jackson was stealing the scene left and right. Not the case with this newly released "Special Look". Jackson's still great, but this trailer gave some life to Larson out of full costume. Their back & forth seemed much more natural this time around. Leading me to hope I only felt that way in the first ones due to how the snippets were cut. I absolutely loved the Jukebox scene they put in here, not to mention the SHIELD logo quip. Comedic scenes aside though, this first foray into the cosmic side of the Marvel universe looks pretty intense this time around. You get more looks at her while team as well as some more of the training with Jude Law. Still no clear consensus on Law's character though. I'm still leaning towards Mar-Vell, even with the Yon-Rogg Funko "mishap". I keep thinking that was either misdirection or we're going to get a combination of the characters with the film's release. Making it a huge Spoiler instead. I digress though, back to the trailer. Which is hands down the first one for this film I've absolutely loved start to finish so far. It has totally renewed my excitement for this release. I also can't help but think this isn't as much set up for Captain Marvel in Avengers: Endgame as it is set up for the future of Marvel Studios as a whole. If this is what I think it is, it could be setting us up for the next major event post-Endgame . Those who are enriched in the actual Marvel comics probably already know where I'm going with this, but I think a "Secret Invasion" might've already occurred. Our heroes futures, based on this one's past might just be dealing with the ramifications. Anyways, as of now that's just speculation. So on another note, what did y'all think of this special look? Was it special enough for ya? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
After finding out that Jude Law is in fact not playing Mar-Vell as everyone previously thought via a Pop Vinyl release, I was really looking forward to this new Captain Marvel trailer. For those who don't know the Pop figure I'm mentioning was named Yon-Rogg. Funny thing is this is the exact opposite of playing Mar-Vell, as he was his nemesis. According to ScreenRant, Marvel was not so happy about this apparent leak, & the Pop figure's name has now been changed to Star Commander. So, still not 100%, but I'm just gonna guess a form a Yonn-Rogg is the safe bet. Anyway, back to the matter at hand, this new trailer. I was a little underwhelmed this time around. Don't get me wrong, I really liked it. I was just expecting to be blown away. In fact besides the last couple of scenes where Captain Marvel's tearing ass through space, I honestly thought Samuel L. Jackson's young Nick Fury totally stole the the trailer. On top of that, it doesn't help Larson almost seems bored at times here. I'm still feel like the finished product is going to be great. This trailer just didn't give me the feeling that most Marvel trailers do. I do feel like this is going to be the most "comic-book" thing we've seen so far in the somewhat grounded reality of the MCU so far. I think this is really going to test what they can do next in the form of expanding the universe into the wide world of weird that is the whole of Marvel comics. Believe me when I say we haven't even scratched the surface of where Marvel can go. So, all in all, I liked the trailer. I was hoping to love it, but it's a just a commercial. No real reflection on the final product. They put out an awesome looking poster though. But really, I'm curious to know, what are y'all's thoughts? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Oh my Celestial!! This Captain Marvel trailer was amazing on so many levels! My excitement level wasn't on an Avengers 4 level for this one, but it sure as Hela is now! Everything I saw got me excited for this one. March 8th is just too far away to do this to me. Just off this trailer alone I can list several things I can't wait to see on top of Captain Marvel herself. The discovering her own origin storyline is intriguing, young Nick Fury seems to be everything I could've possibly hoped for, & Skrulls! Skrulls! A Marvel comic staple. Throw in young Coulson, Jude Law, & that awesome power up sequence? I'm so in! Marvel here, take my money!! Just show me more! March 8th now seems so far away. I can't wait! What did y'all think?

Took me a couple days, but among clearing out boxes & getting everything going in our new spot, I got to check out EW's exclusive first look at Marvel's upcoming "Captain Marvel". Where Brie Larson will be taking on the role of Carol Danvers the half human, half Kree superhero said to be the most powerful we've seen in the MCU so far. Set in the 90s, this film will not be an origin story. Though I'm sure we'll get filled in some way, this will start with Carol already having her powers. She's already left Earth & is part of elite military unit known as Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. This is where we'll run into the return of Korath, Djimon Hounsou, returning from Guardians of the Galaxy and Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan). This is also where we'll get introduced to Jude Law as the commander of Starforce. He's sees Carol as a "mentee & pet project". They'll be going up against sworn enemy of the Kree, the green, shapeshifting Skrulls. With Ben Mendelsohn playing their leader, Talos. He uses said shapeshifting skills to infiltrate S.H.I.E.L.D., where he comes up against a de-aged Samuel L Jackson as 90s Nick Fury, Two-eyed Desk Jockey. Speaking of throwbacks, we'll also see the return if Ronan. Who will be not quite the crazed heretic from Guardians of the Galaxy. Instead he's a high ranking member of Kree society. This was also accompanied by several exclusive pics, I've bunched them together below. My favorite of which has to be the young Sam Jackson shot. Followed by the Skrulls & Ronin shots. That doesn't take away from Ms. Danvers either. Larson looks absolutely amazing in this suit. Even on that cheesy as all what cover shot she manages to still almost pull it off. I'm totally psyched for this. Mainly, I want this to amp my already insane levels of excitement for Avengers 4 , & if judging by just these shots & snippets from EW alone? I think we just might get that. What do y'all think though? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Get ready to see dead people on March 8th, 2019. Marvel Studios announced that production has started on Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson. In which they revealed some deceased Marvel Universe alumni that will be joining the fray. Considering this film takes place in the 90s before all the MCU films as we know them they can pretty much bring back whoever they want. We already knew we were getting a two eyed Sam Jackson as Nick Fury, but new revelations from EW add Lee Pace & Djimon Hounsou as Ronan the Accuser & Korath of the first Guardians of the Galaxy to the upcoming film. If that's not enough dead men walking, Clark Gregg is coming back to the Marvel Studios big screen as S.H.I.E.L.D agent Phil Coulson. Also known cast include Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, & Jude Law. This is friggin' awesome! I hope this isn't all the characters that pop up. I'm guessing Cap is still frozen even? I wonder if this will open up the timeline further to add in things here & there. This feels like a dangerous, yet highly intriguing move for a series already so deep in. This could stir up so many inconsistencies. If they do it smoothly though, the sky's the limit to what they can do. If they can fit this in seamlessly, the timeline is irrelevant. They can put stuff on as they see fit, opening up so many possibilities. I'm super excited for this one. Captain Marvel will be directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck based on their screenplay alongside Meg LeFauve, Nicole Pearlman, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Liz Flahive, & Carly Mensch. And on that note, what do ya'll think if these additions? Anyone else you'd like to see in the 90s? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Upcoming "prequel" to the Marvel Universe, & possible "Secret Wars" launching point, Captain Marvel has added an antagonist in the form of Minn-Erva. Deadline reports that Humans star Gemma Chan is set to play the role. Minn-Erva is a Kree geneticist that wanted to use the original Captain Mar-Vell's (Jude Law) genes to advance the Kree genetic code in the comics. You can imagine she was ticked when she tracked him to Earth only to find out he passed his powers unto Carol Danvers (Brie Larson). That's the extent of the knowledge I have on the character, & to be honest I went to my trusty Marvel encyclopedia for that. I like the setup though. She's got Magneto or Killmonger goals, in which she's trying to help her people. When you give a maniacal villain a noble cause it just makes the story not only relatable, but sometimes it even makes it harder to choose sides. To me, it's that kinda conflict that makes your story that much more special. Anyway, what do y'all think, & does anyone watch Humans ? I know absolutely nothing about Gemma Chan. Thoughts?

I'm not sure how Marvel Studios keeps giving us these awesome costumes that look like they're ripped straight from the pages of a comic book. This is mind-blowing how on point these keep being. We're talking about some of the most impractical outfits imaginable, & Marvel just keeps popping them out left & right. This time in the form of Brie Larson's Captain Marvel. Pics have dropped online from the set, & this thing is everything I wanted, even if it uses the original Captain Marvel color pallette. Which I'm sure pretty sure will be changed by the end of the film. We won't know for sure until March 9, 2019, but nonetheless this suit looks like it jumped off the page. For a comic I don't care that much about, I'm actually really looking forward to it's film counterpart. Even the whole prequel thing is starting to grow more & more on me. This look at the suit only helps that anticipation as a whole. What do y'all think though? Suit on point? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
When they started talking about Captain Marvel I figured they were going to go with the Carol Danvers version of the character. Which they confirmed casting Brie Larson as Captain Marvel. However, I kept thinking you can't really do her story without Mar-Vell, the original Captain Marvel. This alien of the Kree race was my Captain Marvel. Though I say mine loosely, I only read a little Captain Marvel, he also popped up in a lot of titles I read at the back then. Since the mantle has been passed on to Carol I haven't followed Captain Marvel that much at all though, save crossovers. She's passed the original in popularity, but this isn't about her. This is about the casting of Mar-Vell in the upcoming Captain Marvel movie. Collider has Jude Law in final talks, while other sites has labeled this a thing now, to play the original Captain, Mar-Vell. Now I've been totally on board with every casting choice Marvel has made so far. This time though, I can't say they made a bad decision, I love Jude Law. I will say I have my concerns however. As awesome an actor as Jude Law is, I don't really see him as a great choice for Mar-Vell, a character who looks like Matthew McConaughey on steroids. I guess all in all that's just the visual side of it. A good performance could nullify that. I guess that's why I'm going back & forth on this, & I'm guessing by the time we see it, I'll be all in anyway. That's where I'm at though, not a great decision, not a bad decision, just maybe a questionable decision for now. What do y'all think about this choice? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Captain Marvel isn't set to be coming to us until March 8, 2019. Starring Brie Larson & to be directed by Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck, the film's script, was originally to be written by Meg LeFauve & Nicole Perlman. In a Deadline exclusive however, Geneva Robertson-Dworet will be taking over that responsibility, with LeFauve dropping out do to direct the Disney Animation pic Gigantic with Nathan Greno. The article says "take over & write". Which is a little fuzzy to me on whether this is a page one rewrite or if she's got something to work with already. From what I can gather we've really never seen anything from Robertson-Dworet. Her credits do include the upcoming Tomb Raider for MGM & Suicide Squad spin-off Gotham City Sirens for WB. Not sure how I feel about this as I don't have any work to base this off of. Only time will tell I guess. This one is placed in a very crucial spot for the future of the MCU. I'm all for new talent, I just hope this is the right spot to take the chance. Let me know what y'all think in the comments, like, & share.
I've been very curious about this film. Mainly because of it's placement in the MCU lineup falling right in-between two Avengers movies. Considering this is most likely our first time with Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), unless she makes an appearance in Infinity War. Coupled with the fact that a lot of people still get this character confused with DC Comic's Shazam, who's original name was Captain Marvel for a long time. This seemed like a strange place to start, but thanks to Collider coming form San Diego Comic Con, I finally understand how this can happen. They report that 2019's Captain Marvel will take place in the 90's. That's right, this will be pre-Iron Man. Meaning as long as they play their cards right, they can get away with a lot, as a lot hasn't even happened yet. In fact, we get to see a two-eyed Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Yup, it seems Fury lost his eye sometime between the 90's & Iron Man's debut. This is all amazing, I love the 90's!! I can't wait to see the throwbacks they're going to throw at us. Not to mention how awesome the soundtrack's gonna be. That's not all though, what's a hero without a villain? We get one of the most notorious villains of all Marvel Comics, the Skrulls. A shapeshifting alien race that's been around for a long time. My mind is already going into overtime on the possible implications of this. In the comics the Skrulls started replacing a lot of people, heroes as well, in secret. This taking place in the 90's, I begin to winder if everything we've seen is all the sudden at all, what we think it is. With this addition, we can't really be sure who's who. Just a thought. So, what do y'all think? Think it's a good chance this could shake up the whole MCU as we know it? Let me know in the comments, like, & share.
Deadline has confirmed Samuel L. Jackson's, Nick Fury will be reprising his role in March 8, 2019's Captain Marvel. He'll be joining Academy Award winning, Brie Larson, who's taking the role of the title character with Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck scheduled to direct. I couldn't be happier about this news. Everyone always lists Captain America as the leader of the Avengers. However, in the Marvel Cinematic Universe it was Nick Fury that put everything together. He kept the ball rolling for a good while there to. For that matter, I really want to know Fury's take on the Sokovia Accords. The Ultimate Universe of Marvel comics basically designed this character with Samuel L. Jackson in mind. It show's too, because he is perfect in the role. Anyway, what do y'all think? Does this get you anymore excited Captain Marvel? I know I'm more interested with this info. Write it in the comments, like, & share.
That was not a typo that is plural. A Variety exclusive reports the team of Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck will be joining star, Brie Larson in directing Captain Marvel. As far as I know, I don't even remember hearing these on the list. They've worked together on a handful of movies I've never even heard of before. The most notable seems like Missippi Grind. Then there's Half Nelson, It's Kind of a Funny Story, & Sugar, mostly indie films it seems. This makes me a little nervous, but if Marvel Studios saw something in them, I didn't know who the Russos were either. We all know what they've done with Captain America. So what do you think? Nervous or not? Have you seen any of these films listed above? Let us know in the comments.
