Captain Marvel is still two months away, but Marvel is really stepping up their game. As of today, you can already buy tickets to the film — starring Brie Larson as space-bound super-duper-hero Carol Danvers — on Fandango. Then they dropped an “exclusive look” in the middle of the College Football National Championship game. Lo and behold, it was really just a new trailer, with lots of new stuff.
Following on the heels of the first two trailers, this one did two things: it further fleshed out the story, and it contained even more action. It opens, as the others did, in the ’90s, though this one did it to the rockin’ strains of Elastica’s “Connection.” We see Larson’s fully superhero-ed Danvers meeting with Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury, before he lost one of his eyes. She has to convince him that she’s not an evil alien but rather a good one — perhaps the one that will stop Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.
We also got to see more of Jude Law’s still unnamed, ambiguously secretive Starforce commander, previously seen only in glimpses. He’s her mentor, putting her through some vicious training rounds.
There are also shots of what looks like Danvers climbing rope, presumably at her other military training.
Also of note: Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson returns, if only breifly.
Perhaps best of all, though: space battles! We get to see a fully-suited Danvers cruising through the cosmos, battling ships and blowing stuff up real good.
She’s so badass that any sexist men still complaining that Larson should smile more can officially and eternally shut up. If it were possible for Marvel fans to be more excited about this movie, they are after this spot.
