Captain Marvel has a second trailer and whilst a lot of you will be wanting the Avengers 4 trailer just sit down, shut up and enjoy the feast for your eyes instead. Okay? Good!
Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in Marvel’s 21st film which predates most of the MCU by being set in the 90s (I got it wrong last time by saying it takes place before anything in the MCU, forgetting about wartime Captain America, woops!) Check out the new trailer below in which we learn so much more about the first female to lead an MCU movie. About fucking time, right??
As she is faced with a battle against the Skrulls, Carol questions who she is and where she came from due to memories she has of her previous life. We see her with Annete Bening (not sure who she is playing and I don’t think I knew she was in this) who claims to have saved her life when she had no memory, showing that she was badly injured in a crash. She says “…we made you one of us so you could live longer, stronger, superior”. The trailer also includes multiple scenes with a younger looking Samuel L Jackson as an eyepatch-less Nick Fury (“Last time I trusted someone I lost an eye.”) discussing parts of her history and who she believes she is which is part of a race of warrior heroes. There are a couple of shots of Jude Law as he pouts his way around the screen whilst telling Carol “You’ve come a long way but you’re not as strong as you think” I think someone who is the most powerful Avenger would disagree! Knob! Here are a few shots from the trailer including one very brief look at Ben Mendelsohn. What a cast!
That last one looks as if she’s stuck her fingers into a socket. Ouch! Don’t do it kids! Anyway, Captain Marvel flies into cinemas next year in March and also stars Gemma Chan, Clark Gregg, Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou. It’s been directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck who were also on writing duties with Anna Waterhouse, Joe Shrapnel, Jac Schaeffer and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. 2019 is set to be yet another huge year for Marvel with this, Avengers 4 and Spider-Man: Far From Home all out in the first six months. Watch this space for the announcement of the Avengers 4 title and trailer.
It’s the next film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and it’s the first ever female-lead Marvel movie in the current iteration of this set of comicbook movies. Captain Marvel comes in hot with it’s first trailer and it’s pretty good. Check it out below.
As with other MCU trailers, we’ve not been given that much, essentially this is an extension on the images we’ve already seen here but with a bit more context. Starring Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, she’s joined by Gemma Chan, Jude Law, Samuel L. Jackson, Lee Pace, Ben Mendlesohn and Clark Gregg, the plot revolves around the origins of Carol Danvers. Keeping with the comicbook character, she begins as a pilot before she’s granted with superpowers as Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. One of the alien races includes the Skrulls, a shape-shifting group who can look like anyone so therefore could actually be part of the current universe. Oooooooooooooo!
This is the 21st film in the MCU, which means it’s taken 20 movies and now 11 years for their first ever female-lead movie. It’s about fucking time Marvel! COME ON! We want more of this, especially when they are as awesome as Brie Larson and EVERY WOMAN in Black Panther. Here’s hoping we get to see more of this in the future. Captain Marvel is due for release in March 2019.
At the moment we are in the tenth year of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in which they have recently had their 20th film released, that being Ant-Man and the Wasp. And now the MCU is growing in an even bigger way with next year’s introduction of Captain Marvel whose solo film is out in March.
Brie Larson takes on the title role of a character who has been said to be the MCU’s most powerful Avenger. What she can do and how she becomes this mighty being is yet to be seen, will they use the comic book origins of this famed force or go down a different path? Who knows! (Well, I’m guessing those at Marvel know but they aren’t going to tell us now are they??)
In the images we see Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel in her full costume as well as where she begins as a pilot, along with an image in which she stands side by side with Jude Law whose character is Walter Lawson aka Mar-Vell. We see the return of Ronan who is once again being played by Lee Pace. The character became the primary villain in Guardians of the Galaxy, so it’ll be interesting see how he fits in.
Samuel L Jackson’s Nick Fury makes an appearance with two eyes, presumably we’ll see how he loses one, perhaps after trusting someone. We’re also seeing the Skrulls for the first time who are an alien looking shapeshifting race and it’s being said that part of the MCU could be Skrulls due to their abilities to change their appearance that much. Interesting.
So lots to go on and to keep you going until the trailer drops hopefully soon. Anyway, without further ado here’s Captain Marvel in all her wonderful glory.
Comic Con news just in: new Marvel Comic films are on the way, including second installments of Captain America and Thor, both of which have foregone the usual numbers and opted for full titles. Captain America: The Winter Soldier will be with us on 4th April 2014, whilst Thor: The Dark World will be out on 8th November 2013. The rest include Ironman 3 which is out on 26th April 2013, Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on 1st August 2014 and Ant-Man does not currently have an official date as of yet.
So lots on the way for comic book fans, we’ll see if they can live up to the hype, especially Ant-Man which has had some footage shown at Comic Con. It starts with two agents at the end of a long white corridor, from which we pull back behind an air vent to reveal Ant-Man. Tiny, red and black suit, a mask. Simple. He jumps through the vent, runs along t he corridor and zaps into a normal size. The agents draw their guns. Ant-Man changes back into his small self and leaps into the mouth of one of the agents and knocks him out. He then grabs the tie of the other, flips him through the window and changes back to normal size. He enters an elevator and shrinks back down again.
We’ll see what this holds and how the others do against the magnitude of comic book films that are also in production right now, which includes two more Garfield Spidermans, Man of Steel with Christopher Nolan’s creative input as producer and more from The Avengers. It’s going to be a fun geek-filled few years.
The Avengers are Assembling, again. Now I I hope you aren’t quite sick of the super hero lovefest I’ve been having here on Neel’s Reel Deel because here is some great new artwork and a stunning collectors edition case for the release of Marvel’s The Avengers Assemble. Each piece of artwork is for the discs included for the solo films of all the characters plus the bonus “Phase One Archives”. So in this mammoth boxset, you will get Iron man, Iron Man 2, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, The Avengers Assemble as well as the bonus disc of “Phase One Archives.” Very exciting, so much so that I wish I didn’t have any of the film so I could buy this box! Probably the most amazing looking case for any sort of DVD / Blu Ray release, just take a look, it’s beautiful. Well happy buying and watching!
