Trailer #2 for Captain Marvel has hit the web. The trailer, which showcases the Skrulls and the Kree and the intergalactic battle between them. We get a bit more from Carol Danvers and some snippets of her relationship with a younger Nick Fury.
For people that don’t know the Skrulls, it’s probably nice to know that Danvers isn’t just punching old ladies on the bus.
My favorite part of the whole trailer though is the moment where Nick Fury, played by Samuel L. Jackson, stops in a hallway to pet a cat. It’s a lighthearted moment featuring a character who rarely smiles sharing a mild bit of development. There’s even a joke going around the internet that this is how Fury loses his eye, which I found quite funny.
For me, though, this trailer was very similar to the previous one we saw. The amount of new material is very small, and that’s okay. I personally think too many trailers come out for any film and far too often, they either show too much or not enough.
So no, I don’t find that this trailer makes me more excited to see this film. Technically, there isn’t much to make me more excited for Captain Marvel. I already cannot wait for the next installment of the MCU. That’s kind of the magic of Marvel right now. They wouldn’t even have to make a trailer and could just post a blank screen and an announcer saying, “Yeah, we made something. Go see it.” It would still have droves.
That being said, if you didn’t care for the first trailer, I’d give this one a go. I liked the tone of it.
Have you seen the new trailer for Captain Marvel? What did you think? Will you be seeing the film next year?
Captain Marvel hits theaters March 8th.
