Captain Marvel trailer has nods to the comic books

The trailer for 'Captain Marvel' will likely drop this week

Possibly. It certainly looks like most of the action takes place with Danvers in in Starforce mode - which is no bad thing because it looks pretty badass. When we first meet her, she's crash landing on Earth, right in the middle of a still-open Blockbuster. Carol was born an ordinary person with no superhuman powers. Not so in the trailer as she says: "I keep having these memories..." "But what makes her special is just how human she is". Does that mean she "becomes" Captain Marvel properly at the end of the film?

Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel introduces the most powerful superhero in the MCU. She has nearly Hulk-level superhuman strength, invulnerability and the power of flight. Bron-Char (Rune Temte) and Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan) get a quick background shot - flanking Danvers as members of her Starforce unit, but we also see Jude Law's Walter Lawson. So take a peek below and get the first taste of the MCU's first female-led, standalone superhero movie.

I'm going to be honest, I thought the trailer was a little underwhelming.

Carol Danvers isn't Just some random woman given powers.

Costs of daily aspirin may outweigh benefits for older adults, study finds
It compared the effects of aspirin and a placebo in people over the age of 70 without a medical condition that required aspirin. Until now, the balance between risks and benefits in older individuals was unclear, said Dr McNeil.

Is she flying or swimming?

"It's incredible, she's such a wonderful scene partner". What is the war she is fighting that Nick Fury mentions. She wouldn't claim the "Captain Marvel" mantle until years later, long after Mar-Vell had died of cancer. The two have a romantic relationship but it's unclear if this will transfer to the big screen.

In the opening moments, we see her falling to Earth, which is a nod to the character's backstory that is sure to send an excited chill up comic lovers' spines.

Fury continues to narrate the footage: "Space invasion, big auto chase - truth be told, I was ready to hang it up until I met you today". (We couldn't think of a more ideal shot than one of a now-defunct video rental company to establish the film's time period.) The camera then pans to show Laron's Captain Marvel inside the store, half-buried under a pile of rubble. Then, in January 2018, came Marvel's groundbreaking smash hit, "Black Panther", which drew massive crowds to the movies and inspired a generation of African-Americans youth with Chadwick Boseman's formidable yet compassionate T'Challa.
