New Captain Marvel Trailer Released

Marvel Studios revealed the second full trailer for Captain Marvel during last night’s Monday Night Football game, and it gives us a much better idea of what to expect from the story for the film, as well as our first glimpse of Carol Danvers at full power. The story is set in 1995, as Carol finds herself caught in a war between two galactic races, the Kree and the Skrulls, with the fate of the Earth at stake.

Additionally, the trailer also gives fans our first look at the Skrulls, the Kree homeworld, and Jude Law’s character, Yon-Rogg. There’s even a glimpse of Carol’s cat, Goose, coupled with incredible shots of Carol using her powers in a fantastic space battle. Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8th, 2019.

First Captain Marvel Trailer Debuts

Disney and Marvel Studios have unveiled the first full trailer for Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson (Room), and it’s a fast-paced ride that reveals more than we ever thought. As well as our first look at the film in action, we get glimpses of Carol Danver’s powers, her mysterious past, her fantastic helmet and mohawk, and even a young Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg!

Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is directed by the writing/directing team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson). A large, all-star tem of writers penned the screenplay, including Meg LeFauve (Inside Out), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy), Geneva Robertson-Dworet (Tomb Raider), Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch (Glow), and Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck.

Captain Marvel hits theaters on March 8th, 2019. You can hit the jump to check out the first theatrical poster for the film, as well, with a small nod to Carol’s iconic pet Flerken (similar to Earth cats) named Chewie.

Nick Fury Returning for Spider-Man: Far From Home?

fury

It would seem that Nick Fury has more to do after his return in Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson has confirmed over on his Instagram that he’s in the United Kingdom, and that he’s making his return as Nick Fury. However, it looks like the former S.H.I.E.L.D. Director will be rocking some facial hair, confirming this role likely won’t involve Captain Marvel, but instead the currently filming friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.

How the former director of S.H.I.E.L.D. will play into the story has yet to be seen, but seeing as Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first film after Avengers 4, meant to lead us into a new chapter of the MCU, it makes sense to see the man that started it all.

Djimon Hounsou Joins the Cast of Shazam!

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Djimon Hounsou (Guardians of the Galaxy) has been cast as The Wizard in DC’s Shazam! Hounsou will be replacing Ron Cephas Jones (This Is Us) after a scheduling conflict prevented Jones from taking the role on further.

The new casting is a bit of a shock, but continues the trend of great casting for the film, though Ron Cephas Jones will be missed as a fantastic choice. Djimon Hounsou will be reprising his Guardians of the Galaxy role as Korath in Marvel’s Captain Marvel which releases only a few short weeks before Shazam!

First Avengers 4 Promo Art Leaks Online

De7FDqDW4AIBGeD

The first rumored promo artwork for the still-untitled Avengers 4 has leaked online, showing off a few new costumes, and new looks for the post-Infinity War team, as they prepare to face Thanos again. This may still be fan-made, but given the similarities to past artwork, it’s very likely official. The most interesting takeaways are Hulk’s new costume, Hawkeye and Ant-Man are there, with Hawkeye not yet sporting his new hair, and Captain Marvel joining the fray.

Most, however, will likely point out Captain America’s lack of his now-famous beard. Which, is simply tragic. Hopefully we’ll learn more about the film soon, as Marvel Studios has opted out of Comic-Con this year, leaving us with quite a few mysteries to unravel.

Marvel Has Plans for Ms. Marvel

Marvel

In a move that’s not surprising in context, but still fantastic, Kevin Feige revealed in an interview with the BBC Arabic’s Husam Asi, that after Captain Marvel is released to the world, Marvel has plans to reveal fan-favorite Muslim hero, Kamala Khan, aka Ms. Marvel. A Pakistani-American, Khan was introduced to Marvel readers back in 2014. She capable of stretching her limbs to great lengths and widths, as well as the ability to grow or shrink to incredible sizes.

We’re doing Captain Marvel right now. Captain Marvel‘s shooting right now with Brie Larson. Ms. Marvel, which is another character in the comic books, the Muslim hero who is inspired by Captain Marvel, is definitely sort-of in the works. We have plans for that once we’ve introduced Captain Marvel to the world.

Captain Marvel Begins Production With Insane Returns

captainmarvel

Marvel Studios has begun principal photography on one of its most anticipated films with Captain Marvel, set to hit theaters on March 8th, 2019. The story follows Carol Danvers becoming one of the most powerful characters in the MCU during a previously unseen period in that universe.

The biggest surprise of the announcement? The official returns of Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson, as well as Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou reprising their roles from Guardians of the Galaxy! The film stars Academy Award winner Brie Larson (Kong: Skull Island), Samuel L. Jackson (Basically Everything…), Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Lashana Lynch (Brotherhood, Fast Girls), Gemma Chan (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them), Algenis Perez Soto (Sambá, Sugar), Rune Temte (Eddie The Eagle, The Last Kingdom), McKenna Grace (I, Tonya, Gifted), and Jude Law.

Jude Law Cast as Mar-Vell in Captain Marvel

The cast of Marvel Entertainment’s much-anticipated Captain Marvel is slowly taking shape, and the studio is pulling no punches on big names for the film. Variety is reporting that Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes) has been cast as Kree hero, Mar-Vell, the alien responsible for giving Carol Danvers her powers.

This casting is terrific, but rumor has it that Keanu Reeves was offered the role, but turned it down. Perhaps it’s for the best.

Captain Marvel Confirmed for Avengers 4

marvel

Initially, the delay between the release of Avengers: Infinity War and Captain Marvel all but doomed us from seeing the character on-screen until her first solo outing. However, confirmation of the film’s 1990’s era setting made it entirely possible. Now, it looks like our wish may be coming true!

A set photographer that has been quite reliable in the past, has spotted Brie Larson on the set of Avengers 4 for filming, all but confirming her appearance in the film. It’s likely that she may end up in some sort of stasis at the end of her solo film, mirroring the journey that Steve Rogers took at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger.

New Comic Books: September 13

NEWCOMICS

What a hell of a week for comic books! Metal, Secret Empire, the identity of Mr. Oz, Flash, Wonder Woman… and with all that, Hal Jordan still takes the cake with his delightfully fun race through space. Mister Miracle continued its wildly confusing run, and Darkseid was a baby, used as a gun! I love comic books.

WW
This was a fun filler-arc, but at the end of the day it was clearly just a filler arc. There were no real lessons learned, or any serious revelations. The only major thing to come out of this, is the possibility of a new enemy organization being built up by Dr. Revere and the now-power-addicted soldiers. The next arc, Children of the Gods, is what we’ve been waiting for the last several weeks, and this should be pretty great.

METAL
Greg Capullo’s art is so next-level that he can elevate any story. Even one as confusing as this. I’m hoping things come together in a way that makes sense. It’s impressive how well Snyder laid the groundwork of the mantling, and how important Bruce’s time-traveling adventure after Final Crisis was. The Dark Knights look horrifying, and seeing them in the DC Universe is going to be a hell of a ride.

TT
The first Metal tie-in was a great amount of fun. Having Damian get his ass handed to him so decisively, but still being able to use his intelligence was a nice consolation for the kid, and the interesting team-up was a good mix. This should be a fun read for the next couple of months, as Metal gets in full swing.

SE
I’m genuinely glad that they gave us a final resolution, at least in some ways, as to the fate of Hydra Cap. I genuinely hope he doesn’t become a main-stay in Marvel, though. While he was interesting in Secret Empire, I can easily see him quickly becoming more of a nuisance, and red herring in Marvel’s writing. Some of the other fall-out is interesting, as well. Nick Fury selecting Frank Castle, while making up for his sins. Black Widow faking her own death. It should be fun to see how the heroes move forward from this.

FLASH
Bloodwork is a pretty broken villain, with such a ridiculous power that he seems like he could take on the entire Justice League. However, this was a pretty solid case for Barry to solve, and hopefully it starts to lead him back on the path to removing the Negative Speed Force from his system. I feel like the Negative Speed Force has somewhat run its course, but at the same time, we haven’t fully explored the exact powers that it’s given to Barry.

GL
Somehow, whenever an issue of Green Lantern involves Hal Jordan interacting with his Dad in some strange, cosmic way, it always makes for a fantastic issue. This was no different. The Fall of the New Gods arc has been some of the best in comic books, right now, and it’s showing no sign of letting up. I’m excited to see where it goes next, with Hal out-running Omega Beams in the vacuum of space, the Highfather in the back seat.

CM
Another delightfully retro addition to the short but sweet Generations line. These great, standalone stories have been some of the best Marvel has put out in years. It’s possible that this Legacy thing might work out for them, if it ends up being anything like how wonderful this has been to read. It also made me miss Mar-Vell, strangely enough. However, Carol Danvers is a fantastic Captain Marvel. Maybe bring back Captain Kree?

AC
We’ve been waiting for the true name of Mr. Oz for so long, but it somehow fell almost flat for me. It wasn’t a surprise, as I had figured out several months ago that the logical conclusion was Jor-El, and the back-drop of his revealing himself felt too forced. I feel as if Superman had dealt with far worse, and seen far worse than was presented to him here. Perhaps when we learn more about what Jor-El has been up to, it will piece together in better ways. Regardless, it’s at least nice to have a mystery solved.

MM
Such a mystery taking place in this book! Who do you trust? Who’s lying? Who’s telling the truth? It’s such an interesting spin on such tragic and troubled characters, that come from such a fantastical life. The war between New Genesis and Apokolips is being manipulated, but by who? Tom King and Mitch Gerad are so far above the rest of the indsutry right now, that it’s absurd.
