Kevin Smith: Captain Marvel Will Defeat Thanos In 'Avengers 4'

Kevin Smith: Captain Marvel Will Defeat Thanos In 'Avengers 4'

Expanding on a scene from the first "Captain Marvel" trailer, the Skrulls are just as capable of blending in with Earth's human population as Danvers is, resulting in a bout of acrobatic subway auto fighting between the movie's heroine and a little old lady.

The brand new Captain Marvel trailer has been released, bringing with it a whole slew of new details about the MCU's first solo female hero-including our first confirmation of a pretty major change to her comic book origin story.

Samuel L. Jackson, who summons Danvers at the end of Infinity War, will play a younger version of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Nick Fury, who stumbles upon an intergalactic throwdown between the shape-shifting Skrulls (led by Ben Mendelsohn) and Krees.

"Captain Marvel" will be the penultimate film of the MCU's third phase, capped by a fourth "Avengers" ensemble movie, due May 2019, in which Brie Larson is also scheduled to appear.

"She's insane strong", Larson said during the Sun's visit to the set of Captain Marvel this past summer. It's also the studio's first title set in the 1990s - long before Robert Downey Jr. kicked things off in 2008 with Iron Man- and it will help bridge the events of this year's Avengers: Infinity War and next spring's Untitled Avengers 4. And while it keeps the mystery, it lets us know what to expect from the movie.


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.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel will hit the screens in March next year.

The Brie Larson version of Captain Marvel is on her way via a movie set to begin its global release the week of March 8, 2019. There have been some brief instances of brainwashing and some typical comic book flavored stakes involving memory loss and time travel, but nothing that would really necessitate her origin involve her not remembering Earth.

Captain Marvel opens March 8, 2019.
