The Captain Marvel trailer made its’ debut on Good Morning America and if you haven’t seen it yet, then hit play! This also marks Captain Marvel‘s official debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Now onto the analysis:
Analyzing the Captain Marvel Trailer
Analyzing the Captain Marvel trailer isn’t easy but we will try anyway.
The CGI looked very good. Nick Fury with both eyes was nice to see. But also the apparel he was wearing and the cars.
The setting, the 1990s, looked well done. The cars for instance but also the buildings. That Blockbuster looked pretty real to me. And that scene was hilarious!
And I am expecting many more 90s references since Clark Gregg told us about Phil Coulson‘s MC Hammer obsession. Will he wear the baggy pants?
The Kree battlesuit was used in the underwater scene, which again was a sign of the CGI being very well done.
Speaking of amazing eye for detail, did anyone see Captain Marvel’s cat? The cat, named Chewie, can be found in the left hand corner of the teaser poster:
I am also happy that they are using the current comicbook equivalent of the Captain Marvel suit. Can you imagine Carol Danvers using her 1980s suit in the movie?
While I like the idea that she has been in space for a long time with a group of renegades. I can’t help but wonder why the memory loss?
We have seen the Kree use memory techniques before on Phil Coulson during season 3 and 4 of Marvel’s Agent of Shield. I also don’t know if it works in, of what I think will be, a movie of about two hours.
The memory loss gimmick never really worked for me in the comics. Except for this one time when Spiderman lost his memory in the 60’s during Stan Lee‘s run.
The memory loss of Drax in the 90s for instance, it was just anti climactic. And Wolverine‘s memory loss dragged on for too long in my opinion.
What do you make of this memory loss gimmick in the comics or other movies? Do you think it can work?
After watching Captain Marvel getting hung up with electricity coursing through her brain, I can’t help but wonder if we have seen the first attempt at something like Project Tahiti. If yes, then what would it do? Restore the memory?
Will we finally see how Nick Fury loses his one eye? And what about Coulson, will he wear the baggy MC Hammer pants?
In the Infinity Gauntlet and Infinity War comics, it was Adam Warlock who united the heroes of Earth in the war against Thanos. Warlock masterminded a plan to undo all the damage that was done by the mad Titan.
However, Adam Warlock is absent in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, except for the end of Guardians of the Galaxy two. And even then, the cocoon we saw was based on the cocoon of Adam Warlock’s in the comics. Doesn’t necessarily mean it’s him.
The look of the powers on the train in the trailer plus the glow at the end when she goes all powered up make me think that she will be taking over Adam Warlock’s role.
