The Captain Marvel Trailer is out, and Marvel fans couldn’t be happier. Fans have been waiting for this for a long time due to the change it will create within the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Captain Marvel is going to be the first heroine to get her own movie in the MCU. Once Phase 3 is over for Marvel Entertainment, Captain Marvel is rumored to be the face of the MCU, replacing Iron Man.


Warning – Theories and Possible Spoilers Ahead!


In the comics, Captain Marvel has many different origin stories that explain how she got her powers, but based on the trailer, the movie is most likely going to introduce her powers by having the Kree, an alien race, mutate her DNA with the device that explodes in the trailer. My theory is this device will also erase her memory, setting her on a journey to recover her memories and try to find out who she was before the explosion.

The movie will be set against the backdrop of a galactic war between two alien races; The Kree and The Skrulls. Carol will likely end up in the middle of the war as an Air Force pilot. In the comics her jet crash lands near the Kree device and all of it falls into place after.

Most Marvel movies, or any movie with a hero protagonist, usually have sidekicks to help the hero on their quest, Captain Marvel will have two of them. They are Nick Fury, who is played by Samuel L. Jackson, and Agent Coulson, played by Clark Gregg. Both characters have been in the MCU since the first Iron Man movie. Agent Coulson was an undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent helping Tony Stark and Nick Fury appeared in the post credit scene. In Captain Marvel, they will be playing younger versions of the characters we’ve known, so this will be sort of an origin story for them as well.

Captain Marvel won’t hit theatres until March 8thnext year, so feel free to watch the trailer on repeat to hold you over until its release.
