Captain Marvel Trailer: Did We See Carol Danvers Go Binary?

All the hype that was already there for Captain Marvel has now been magnified with the launch of the first Captain Marvel trailer. It was amazing to see how the movie seems to be taking such a different approach to her origin story, and it does seem to have a lot of changes from the original source material. The best thing about the trailer was that it entirely focused upon Carol Danvers. These are the sorts of trailers which bring you onboard by showing exactly what has to be put out at first and not give away the whole movie.

Apart from Carol Danvers, there were some amazing elements of the trailer as it ran a whole lot of things in a flash. We got to see the trademark helmet of Captain Marvel being incorporated in the story in a way that it made complete sense, Nick Fury’s beeper was teased, and we saw glimpses of Ronan, Kree Starforce, a young Phil Coulson, Captain Marvel’s amazing powers, and most essentially, her trademark suit from the comics.

We saw Carol as a child, as a renegade soldier, as a Kree Starforce Warrior, and most importantly, taking form as Captain Marvel. While we did not get to see her powers being fully used in the trailer obviously because of the fact that the CGI for that would not have been completed till now, but the trailer did end with her powering up as the hero we’re gonna pay the big bucks to see. We saw her taking the ultimate form of Captain Marvel, which made us think that she was actually going Binary. Well, some people thought that she may be turning into a Super Saiyan like Goku, but it was obviously not that.

For those of you who don’t know about this, Carol’s Binary form originated during the time when she was around the X-Men. She hung out with the X-Men in the comics due to her encounter with the power-absorbing mutant Rogue, as she ended up taking the powers of Carol Danvers and Carol remained among the X-Men for some time so that Professor X could study her and see if there was a way in which she could get her powers back.

Her time with the X-Men led to them getting captured by the alien race called the Brood, who subjected Carol and the X-Men to certain experimentation. One of those experiments ended up unlocking the power which was stored in the genes of Carol that were already a hybrid of Kree and Human DNA. So this allowed her to take another form which was termed Binary.

Her Binary form actually allows her to reach the peak of the strength she has and even beyond that. The level of her strength cannot be calculated practically in the Binary form and her range of attacks become even stronger. She even gains a wider range of abilities too. Superman even in God-mode would not be able to take down Captain Marvel in her binary form.

The final moment of the trailer may not be her Binary form. It could be just how she uses all her powers in a big fight. The reason why I am saying this is because Marvel may want to keep that stored for a sequel or the third movie in the trilogy. Also, Marvel does not have Rogue or the other X-Men, and the alien race Brood will also not be a part of the film, so Marvel may have to alter her transformation to Binary completely if they have to show it in this movie.

The reason why we need to see that transformation is because Kevin Feige mentioned the fact that Captain Marvel will have the strength to move planets, and that may happen only in her Binary form. Also, she needs to be at the peak of her strength before she takes on Thanos, so we might as well see the Binary form after all.
