Captain Marvel is in its final stage of marketing and soon we can expect one last trailer to be released before the slew of TV Spots and international trailers start to pick up the pace throughout the next month. It will probably come out around the Super Bowl around February 3rd, but even if it doesn’t come out, we’ve still seen plenty from the film and so the movie has managed to surround a whole lot of excitement amongst the fans.
Even before we got the first teaser or even the first Entertainment Weekly reveal, we had seen quite a lot of set photos which showcased Nick Fury, Captain Marvel’s Kree suit, Carol’s training, Phil Coulson and plenty other things. So, the buzz for Captain Marvel has been around for almost a year, and people have been really inquisitive about the film ever since the final reference to Captain Marvel was made in the post-credits sequence of Avengers: Infinity War.
Captain Marvel has plenty upon its plate as there’s the whole element of Earth where Nick Fury, Agent Coulson, and SHIELD will be involved. Then there’s Kree and Carol’s Team, i.e. the Starforce. Apart from these two allegiances of Carol, there are the villains which are the Skrulls who will look to invade Earth and will be at War with the Kree throughout.
While we have seen quite a lot of Carol Danvers and Nick Fury through the trailers, we’ve only got glimpses of the Starforce and the Skrulls. So, it is good that the film is marketing the two factions of the film by giving us different looks at them. We got the best possible look at the Skrulls just yesterday, courtesy of Empire Magazine. Here’re the shape-shifting aliens, if you missed it all:
Brie Larson gave away the Magazine cover which stars her in the lead, has the Skrull Leader Talos, played by Ben Mendelsohn, and Jude Law’s Starforce leader Yon Rogg.
Talking about the Starforce, we now have different close-up shots at the team. These include Minn-Erva played by Gemma Chan, Bron-Char played by Rune Temte, Carol Danvers – Brie Larson and of course Jude Law’s Yon Rogg. Have a look:
Since there are plenty of characters in the film, we might not get to see a whole lot of action from the Starforce members, but the likes of Bron-Char and Minn-Erva could chip in with some funny bad-ass moments.
Captain Marvel will bring in a totally different Superhero than what we have ever seen. In an Interview last year, Brie Larson described the nature of Carol Danvers and how she is different from the other Superheroes that we have come across till now.
“I think she has an ego, but in a healthy way. She doesn’t have an unrealistic expectation of herself – she just owns that she’s really good and really skilled, which feels good to play. She also has an incredible sense of humor, makes fun of herself, makes fun of other people and has no issue if someone makes fun of her. [She’s] probably the most dynamic character that I’ve ever played. We’ll see what the movie is, but as of now it’s been the most range I’ve ever played in a character. I’ve had to go through every emotion possible with her…That’s what I want: I want to see complicated female characters. I want to see myself, which is not a simple person. I surprise myself constantly by what’s happening and what’s coming up, so hopefully that’s what comes out on screen.”
Captain Marvel releases on March 8 and it will lead us right into Avengers: Endgame. Here’s the official Synopsis of the film:
“The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races,” the synopsis reads. “Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.”
