She fires her energy bolts on top of the train.  Does that count?

It looks like they are going to show her backstory of how she gets to BE Captain Marvel in flashbacks, woven into the main story.

And ye, I'm glad they didn't show more like most trailers do these days.

Peace.

Yes, I think that works, just showing snippets of her back story makes sense for the opening trailer.



Don't you guys know the RULES OF TRAILERS?

TRAILER 1: Tease. No plot. Lots of Voice Over. Don't give them what they want, but make them want more.
TRAILER 2: More plot. Less Voice Over. More action. Give them what they want. Show them that 1 big Special Effects Shot that you finally finished.
TRAILER 3: Enough plot to explain to people who are not familiar with the subject matter, cuz you gotta fill those seats! Make them say "OH SHIT!!!!"

Venom did this perfectly. Expect Trailer #2 to have "that big SFX" shot.

I think the entire MCU catalog (except maybe Captain America and the Hulk appearing in Avengers) counts that way.  Definately so for Ant-Man, Guardians, Dr. Strange, and Black Panther.  Iron Man and Thor were well known to anyone who has read a passing Marvel comic ... but that's not most people.

Before Iron Man I would think that most adults would have a hard time naming Marvel characters ouside of animation (X-Men, Spider-Man,  Firestar, Hulk) or a VERY LONG pedigree (Captain America, and even then, likely only with older generations).

Marvel's proven that the big hurdles are:

- Make a good movie
- get attention


Now Marvel has it easier because it's got a core of comic book geeks AND a bunch of people who really liked the previous bunch of movies they've made so will pay attention to their latest movie automatically.  They just have to "make a good movie".  Admittedly not as easy as all that, but it's is a big relief if you know if you make a good movie it WILL produce.  That's not a given!

Marvel's also learned to properly weaponize it's actors and twitter, and do so w/o stopping them from being humans (they're not just marketing machines, they just do that as well). It's no accident Brie Larson tweeted this to prep everyone today. It was a new story yesterday and just primed everyone for today. It's a well oiled machine that knows what to do.

Now the millions of hits it's getting is another story which generates more buzz.  ;-)

Trailer was not bad, not bad at all. My first feeling is that the movie is basically a home grown take of how a developing an action woman. Stuff that isn't wonder woman growing up as a deity's creation. Quite glad it's showing athleticism in the trailer.

Totally agree Twice, they have the formula down to a tee.

Which is simple is essence like you say - make a good movie and people will see it.

There is always a little trepidation, certainly with me and my circle of comic book nerds, whenever they bring a new character into the fold.  How will the general public react?  What will their take on it be? Etc.

It was the same with Guardians, the same with Dr. Strange and Ant-Man.  Characters who, like you mention, weren't household names.

But for sure, Marvel know how to present and make their films - cast, marketing, their use of social media, all spot on so far.

The biggest benefit I feel they have is, they have built enough good will among the general public, that movie goers will give them a chance at whatever they make.

Hopefully the trend will continue :)

Peace.

She seems to have her powers throughout the movie other than flashbacks, so I don't know what you are saying.  She falls from really high up and walks away and is shown using Energy bursts.

The last shot isn't a costume morph either, she's just powering up but is clearly in blue/red not the Kree Green at the start of the shot.  It's also the first trailer!  They really shouldn't give EVERYTHING away.


Yeah, that's fair. I was talking about seeing her in action in the blue suit as Captain Marvel proper. That's what I was looking forward to seeing, so I was disappointed when I didn't see it. The train scene was okay, but it was very brief with no hint at who she was fighting. I guess, with the long wait for the first trailer and the high degree of interest, I'm a bit underwhelmed by what they put together. I'd love to be proved wrong on this because I really want a strong showing for this movie so Marvel will feel free to release more female led films, but I'm not getting a great vibe from this.

From the internet!

The teaser trailer does a good job using a very small bit of footage to great effect. (her origin is is almost told completely in the unordered snippets!)

Blockbuster changed their logo from Blockbuster Video to Blockbuster in 1994.

The Metro Blue Line (the train in the trailer) started operation in 1990 and was fully operational in 1991.

Apparently her Nine Inch Nails shirt is pre 95, as that is when the band switched to a darker more metal logo appearance.

E.T.A. The joint cinema release worked quite well with Gal's Wonder Woman! Something I'm sure the producers have thought of..

Yup, Marvel don't mess about with their films.  Apparently anything you need is provided.

Tom Holland had a great story.  When he was prepping for Spiderman, as a joke, he said it would be a good idea if he (being British) enrolled in an American school, to see how they act.  'Cause he just wanted to goof around and see what it was like.

Marvel enrolled him in a school and he went there undercover for a few days I believe :D 

Peace.

This isn't funny.

And i bring this up becuse pretty much all of the marvel movies-even Stuff Like Black Panther which isn't really a comedy, at least tries to sell the movie a little bit on comedy.

I get that the concept in 2018 of Blockbuster can be considered a joke-but i donno. But the central feature of the MCU so far has been its a little bit silly. For a movie that features at least a cameo from the straight up comedy Gaurdains of the Galaxy-that seems a touch. There isn't even a final stinger joke.

This isn't a bad thing, and obviously not indicitive of the final movie. But thats a something.

I'm wondering, given a female lead, whether MCU will try and make it more serious than some other movies? I could see the temptation, but hope they stay with their proven formula.

I think the lack (so far) of any comedic elements, is that the template they are going for with this film is the "90s action blockbuster".

So think Face/Off; Con Air; that kind of thing. I read that they cite T2 and ID4 as some of their models.

I don't think they will change their formula.  Certain Marvels films lend themselves more to humor then others.  I think the tone of Capt. Marvel is more comedy-lite then say, Ant-Man or Guardians for example.

This isn't to say it will have no quips, or jokes per se.  But I don't think the fact that its female-led has anything to do with it.

Peace.

/K

P.S. I know it probably wasn't suppose to be, but Capt. Marvel clocking that granny on the bus had me in stitches when I first saw it :D  Everything about that shot is perfect - the force of the punch, the expression on Brie's face, the reaction on the granny, and it felt so in-character, I just couldn't help but laugh out loud :)

Looks like she doesn't fly much until the end.  And she has a fancy helmet or mask on in many scenes.  Would rather see her gorgeous mane of hair flow.  Probably did it to save CGI $?  Going to end up renting it or maybe see at theaters.

This is a hard trailer to sort out. Overall, it didn't excite me, but I've got a better idea now of what they are trying to do with her background. I don't like it as well as the original comic, but it can work. 

My biggest problem strangely enough was Brie's voice. Too little-girlish for Ms Marvel/Captain Marvel. Overall, I didn't get a sense of power from how she played the role. Which I think I should with Captain Marvel. To say it most simply, she looks too wimpy for the role. 

Special effects seemed OK for a movie of this budget. The usual flashy lights and beamy things and explosions that are the current norm. 

Although I'll admit the ending was pretty wild when she was unleashed. 

Looks like a movie I'll definitely watch, likely entertaining and I might like it, but I'm not expecting to be delighted. The first Guardians of the Galaxy movie... now that delighted me.

Trailer was fine.  Gave a little bit more backstory to the character for newer fans of the MCU, without giving the whole story away.

And quite a few of the shots in the trailer were repeats from the teaser, again, not to give away the story or show the whole film.

This is fine imo.  People always complain that trailers now give away the whole film.  So its refreshing to go into a film and still be surprised.

Did it blow me away like say, CA: The Winter Soldier, or original Avengers or even Civil War?  Nope.  But those had already built up their characters and arcs.  This is a new character so we have no investment in her yet.  This is meant to pique our interest.  Which I think it does.

Box office I expect it to make MUCH more then it normally would, simply because of its ties to Avengers 4 - its the last piece before that epic story which started "with an idea" comes to an end :)

Can Brie Larson pull off the role?  Yes without a doubt, she has the acting chops to do it.  People say she says her lines in a strange way, or her expressions are this or that.  We each have an idea of how "our" Captain Marvel would look and sound, but this is the one Marvel have chosen.  Will it work?  Time will tell.  I personally have now problem with it with what I have seen so far.

Bonus geek points for seeing her go Super Saiyan at the end :)

Just my thoughts :)

Peace.

I enjoyed the trailer.
Much better than the first one as it should be.
I love the human parts that slip through.
The hint of a smile when she is in the car with Nick stood out.
Her repressed memories also.
As is the celebration of her long, flowing hair when her helmet comes off.
What i saw in this trailer was a human woman who has superpowers.
That is exactly what I want.
