The anticipation and curiosity for Captain Marvel is at a fever pitch. All of us are excited to know her origin story and how she is an important character of Avengers: Endgame. The former SHIELD chief paged her just before turning into dust, so we expect Captain Marvel to play a crucial role in the upcoming battle against Thanos. One thing is crystal clear that “Captain Marvel” won’t take place at the same time as “Infinity War” or any of the other current Marvel movies, instead, it’s hopping back in time by a couple of decades. Both trailers, combined with a quick teaser that was shown during the Super Bowl and other footage have given us a look of how this movie is going to pan out.
This period movie will be the first MCU movie to feature Skrulls who are in an intergalactic conflict with Kree. This alien species is a shape-shifter that can also take the form of humans. Remember, an old lady who was punched in the face by Captain Marvel? Well, she is also a Skrull and not anyone’s grandma. Though we don’t know what drama these aliens are going to bring in MCU still we know from the trailers that they are going to infiltrate Earth, which obviously isn’t good.
In the whirlwind tour of her past trying to remember who she is and what is supposed to be, in the first trailer we get a brief glimpsed of her as an elite Kree military team called Starforce. Just as Nicky Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson introduced Tony Stark and audiences to a larger universe, in the same way, he is going to be an important role in Carol Denver’s origin story. Is Jude Law playing Mar-Vell or is he just helping Carol with her training? This is something we’ll get to know when the movie will hit the theater. Phil Coulson isn’t the only dead Marvel character that is being brought back. We’ll also see Ronan the Accuser who died a pretty horrific death at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 any maybe this movie will tell us why he becomes the radical which we saw in GOTG 1. And as Jackson said, “At some point, we’ll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she’s capable of. She’s one of the few people in the Marvel universe that can time travel, so…” this statement clearly states that her ability to time travel will make her the strongest MCU character.
In addition to introducing Captain Marvel ahead of Endgame, the film also sets up the future of other movies in MCU where our heroes may have to fight each other (again) as they face off against the Skrulls. We’re sure there will be plenty more excitement to come. Captain Marvel is directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck and is releasing on 8th March 2019.
