Watch the first trailer for Captain Marvel, Marvel’s next big film

The first trailer for the next installment of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe is here. The first look at Captain Marvel arrived this morning on Good Morning America.

Spoilers ahead for Avengers: Infinity War

There’s a lot of anticipation for this movie after the end of Avengers: Infinity War. During the end credits scene, we saw Nick Fury send out a message via a pager before he dissolves into dust. Before the scene ends, we get a glimpse of the screen, featuring Captain Marvel’s trademark logo. Clearly, Captain Marvel is going to play a big part in what’s to come in the next Avengers film.

Earlier this month, Entertainment Weekly ran a big feature on the film, officially showing off Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) in her costume for the first time. The feature showed off some new details about the film, explaining that Danvers will already have her powers. (This won’t be an origin story.) She’s left Earth to join a team known as Starforce, which is led by a character played by Jude Law. The feature also confirms that she’ll run into Lee Pace’s Ronan — we first met him in Guardians of the Galaxy — and the Skrulls, shape-shifting aliens who have long been classic villains in Marvel’s comics. The 1990s-set film will also feature a younger Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and Agent Coulson (Clark Gregg), and it will feature Danvers’ time as a pilot for the US Air Force.

As we see in the trailer, Danvers is returning to Earth. She says that she had some memories of her time there, but she seems to have lost many of them after becoming a member of Starforce. It looks as though she’s tracking someone down, and she appears to enlist an unlikely ally in the form of Nick Fury, who looks to be less bitter and cynical than the character we first met in Iron Man and the rest of the MCU thus far.

The biggest revelation here is how Captain Marvel will explore Danvers’ past: coming home clearly seems to stir up some memories, and there are a bunch of scenes of her childhood and basic training, which help inform the hero she will become.

Captain Marvel will hit theaters on March 8th, 2019.
