Before that, Brie begins to tell a little of the solo backstory to fighter pilot Danvers, who becomes part-human, part-Kree, meaning she has all of the powers of a god.
As the story goes on, they encounter the Guardians of the Galaxy and Rocket Raccoon, upon seeing Chewie, full-on loses it. Rocket literally attempts to kill poor Chewie and while Captain Marvel stops him, Rocket keeps insisting that Chewie is a Flerken - a risky alien species that takes the form of common housecats. Hollywood veteran Samuel L Jackson plays her support system and their chemistry will make you chuckle.
What happened: Marvel Studios dropped a new trailer for "Captain Marvel" Monday during halftime of "Monday Night Football". She's one of the most beloved superheroes of recent years, and very soon will be the star of the first female-led film in the MCU.
The new Captain Marvel is both an origin story and a war movie. Memories of her friend Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) and her past life on Earth keep bubbling up. As Captain Marvel, Danvers joins forces with the Kree to fight the Skrull aliens, intent on destroying Earth.
"Something in my past is the key to all of this", she says. It is the good, pure thing we need as we wait for Avengers 4.
The trailer was also posted online, for those who weren't willing to wade through all the sports to get to the comic book-based action.
Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has released the second movie trailer and movie poster for Captain Marvel (2019). And she gets unintentionally involved in their war. If anyone can be considered an expert in pop culture from the mid-1990s, when Captain Marvel is set, it's Smith; his directorial debut Clerks was released in 1994.
