Captain Marvel gets a new poster ahead of today’s trailer

The New Poster for Captain Marvel Shines Bright

Captain Marvel's Cosmic New Poster Arrives Ahead Of Fresh Trailer

Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is about Carol Danvers, who falls on earth only to realise that she has been here before.

What happened: Marvel Studios dropped a new trailer for "Captain Marvel" Monday during halftime of "Monday Night Football". The film hits theaters, March 8.

The movie, incidentally, is a prequel, even though it's the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe of superhero movies based on comic book characters. The identity of the receiver wasn't explicitly stated, but we all know who it was right?

Meanwhile, word on the street suggests Marvel fans have a very big week ahead of them, starting with a new Captain Marvel trailer debuting during tonight's big game. This is something we've thought about all cats at one time or another, but in this case, it's an actual alien known as a Flerken.

It's not until Fury tells us that "Skrulls are the bad guys" that we understand why she smashes the old lady's face into a pole. Oscar-winner Brie Larson plays the titular heroine - who was once Carol Danvers, an Air Force fighter pilot.

Kevin Hart stepping down as Oscars host
While the heads over at the Academy haven't mentioned canceling Hart yet, we've seen damaging tweets derail celebrities before. Earlier Thursday, Hart said in an Instagram video that the tweets were from "eight years ago", but did not apologize.

We did like the mini reveals the trailer gave us; the hint about Jude Law's character being a Kree villain, the easter egg of Fury meeting Carol's cat (which could be an alien!) and of course, Marvel's binary form. Memories of her friend Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) and her past life on Earth keep bubbling up. Should Goose think Fury is threatening or hurting Carol, she might attack.

Also in the movie are Djimon Hounsou as Korath and Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, with both previously appearing in Guardians of the Galaxy.

"We made you one of us, so you could live longer, stronger, superior". And she gets unintentionally involved in their war.

At San Diego Comic-Con in 2016, Marvel announced that Brie Larson would be playing Captain Marvel.
