Captain Marvel will hit cinemas in March next year, while Larson will also appear in the next Avengers instalment which is scheduled for release in May. In it, we see that Carol Danvers, as a Kree soldier, arrives in "90s Los Angeles, where she is hunting for Skrulls".
Well, Twitter user @harleivy absolutely took that statement as a challenge, because she managed to ramp the trailer from brilliant into... utterly and ridiculously epic. We'll be there to catch this one on the big screen, will you?
Marvel Studios unveiled the second trailer for the upcoming superhero film during the NFL's Monday Night Football. The latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe made an impact upon the first full length trailer landing three months ago.
If it's not his exasperation with the Avengers that makes Nick Fury so relatable, it's definitely his reaction to Goose (an apparent replacement for Chewie, Captain Marvel's cat in the comics). He sums up the film's plot in the trailer's opening frame as Captain Marvel batters an old woman on a train.
Danvers is haunted by flashes of her past life on Earth and a sense of duty to protect the planet.More news: May's Brexit deal under fire as legal advice stiffens opposition

Feige hints Captain Marvel is very much its own standalone story, but "it will connect in ways that will be very apparent in Avengers 4".
Judging by the trailer, it is expected that Larson's character will stay true to her comic-book roots.
Right from Nick Fury playing with a kitty (only to be interrupted by Danvers) to Captain Marvel bringing in her actual form, the one that gives us major Dragon Ball Z feels, the trailer has something for everyone.
According to Larson, Danvers isn't the only strong female lead in the film or in the actor's life. And she gets unintentionally involved in their war.
