5 questions we have after watching the Captain Marvel trailer


After seeing the first trailer, so much has been revealed about Captain Marvel. Although, the more we learn, the more questions we have.

It’s safe to say that all Marvel movie fans were doing their happy dance on Tuesday when the first trailer for Captain Marvel finally dropped. It’s the trailer we’ve been asking to see for so long, and we finally got it.

The trailer was packed with great scenes, and many of them checked off the boxes on our wish list of scenes we wanted to see. That being said, there’s still so much to unpack and digest about this movie. So while there are plenty of things that we’ve learned so far, there are still a few plot points to figure out — and they may only be solved by seeing the movie.

Why does Carol Danvers fall onto Earth from apace?

In the opening shot of the trailer (and it’s a really good shot), we see Carol Danvers crash land into a Blockbuster video store (for all the young kids, that’s like if Redbox were a store). It’s good for establishing that this is indeed not present day, but we don’t really find out why she comes crashing down in the first place. The very first shot shows a spaceship completely falling apart, so it’s likely she was on that vessel before crashing. Was Carol planning on coming to Earth, or is it just a coincidence that the ship landed there?

How long has Captain Marvel been away?

Comic book readers might know that Captain Marvel is human, but becomes half Kree (an alien race) — which is how she gets her powers. But when Carol’s on Earth, it’s as if her home planet was a distant memory. She says in the trailer, “I think I had a life here, but I can’t tell if it’s real,” as we see parts of her past life on Earth. So just how long was she gone? Perhaps not much time has passed, and whatever incident happened to her really erased her Earthly heritage.

How does Captain Marvel meet Nick Fury?

We see that Nick Fury becomes an ally of Captain Marvel’s in the trailer. And it seems like Fury was really down on his luck at his dead-end job at SHIELD until Carol came along. But if Fury is a beginner at SHIELD, why would he get to deal with something so high-level like Carol and the Kree aliens? For this, it’s either likely that Fury asked to have himself put on the case, or he secretly goes and does some independent investigating himself.

Where will Captain Marvel be by the end of the movie?

Clearly, Captain Marvel comes down to Earth for a bit in this movie, but then we never hear about her in the MCU until Infinity War. And even then, it’s just a post-credits scene that shows Nick Fury is one of the few Earthlings who knows about her. Seeing as she doesn’t consider Earth her home, will her main domain be out in space, and defending the galaxy (when the Guardians aren’t around)? It seems like that will be so. Because if she wanted to deal with Earth’s tiny problems, Fury would have called her down when the Chitauri attacked.

What are her powers and how strong is she really?

Here’s the million-dollar question. We know Kevin Feige’s bragged about Captain Marvel being strong. Really strong. But love to see just how strong she is. At the end of the trailer, we see her go full Super Saiyan, and her eyes light up just like Thor when he harnesses his lightning powers. Still, the flashy lights don’t do her powers justice. So we really can’t wait to see what she can take on in the movie. And, of course, we really can’t wait to see how she handles Thanos in Avengers 4.
