Well I'm super excited! It's about time we had a solo female lead. And an eventual secret invasion movie in the mcu now that they have the skrulls could be pretty amazing.

Trailer is a fan trailer from a month ago, I think.

Skrulls coming out of the surf like they're about to flail over a beach party.

No way. Their nails aren't large enough. A Reman's nails are so large that it takes them five seconds to press two buttons.

Placing my bets now that Maria is Monica's mom, giving them room to add her in later down the line if they choose.

I think it's been confirmed. Since the movie is set in the 90s, it'll feature Monica's mom. Monica will appear in the present day.

Some spoilery stuff from the article:

Plot Details:

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She’s left her earthly life behind to join an elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by Jude Law’s enigmatic commander.

But before long, Carol finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. And she’s got a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls — the notorious Marvel baddies made all the more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader Talos, who spearheads a Skrull invasion of Earth.

Speaking of Earth, Captain Marvel takes place in the mid-’90s, long before Steve Rogers was defrosted or Tony Stark built his first suit. That allows the film to introduce younger version of familiar Marvel faces — like Jackson’s Nick Fury, who’s still a two-eyed S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey — as well as let Carol carve out her own, unique space in the MCU.

A glimpse into Carol's life:

“This is not a superhero who’s perfect or otherworldly or has some godlike connection,” says Boden, who’s the MCU’s first female director. “But what makes her special is just how human she is. She’s funny, but doesn’t always tell good jokes. And she can be headstrong and reckless and doesn’t always make the perfect decisions for herself. But at her core, she has so much heart and so much humanity — and all of its messiness.”

“She can’t help but be herself,” Larson tells EW. “She can be aggressive, and she can have a temper, and she can be a little invasive and in your face. She’s also quick to jump to things, which makes her amazing in battle because she’s the first one out there and doesn’t always wait for orders. But the [not] waiting for orders is, to some, a character flaw.”

Talos the Untamed? Huh, not a callback I was expecting. What are they saving the Super-Skrull for?

Duh, already forgot that they got the rights back in the deal. Though I was kinda hoping they might have been planning on a MCU version of Annihilation somewhere along the way, that would have worked too.

Ive become so divided on the shared aesthetic of the MCU costumes. Kinda wish they'd have more diversity in their design, but the similar designs emphasize the shared universe aspect.

Word. I mean, go watch "The Hitman's Bodyguard". If not for, erm, the entire rest of the cast you could easily imagine it to be the fun two-years-later sequel to "Pulp Fiction".

Nick Fury with a forehead wound? Want to bet someone tells him to be glad he didn't lose an eye (or something similarly ironic)?

Looking at the photo I was almost expecting him to just pull at a zip and reveal an eyepatch just underneath.

DC finally beat the MCU out at something with Wonder Woman and the first female director of a superhero movie, but I hope Carol does well. I'd like to see a Black Widow movie, too!

From elsewhere, it looks like Carol's team up there includes Korath (from Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 1), Att-Las (Captain Atlas), and Minn-Erva (Doctor Minerva), so hey, familiar faces and people connected to Carol's history.

Disney's really got a swagger in its step about that nifty CGI reverse aging technology they've got now. They love trotting it out.

I was really hoping Jude Law would play Doom somewhere down the line... Looks like he'll be a throwaway character here😑 ...but hey, incoming Monica Rambeau 😁

He's Mar-Vell/Walter Lawson

Decide for yourself how throwaway that is in the movie Captain Marvel.

He's also the subject of a bet I've got on for Avengers: Infinity War, so I'm invested in what happens to him.

it's his costume that Cull Obsidian/Black Dwarf was wearing in Infinity War, not Carols.

Yeah, he's a throwaway. He'll die, and she'll take the mantle. Waste of a perfectly good actor.

Skrulls! And they don't look half-bad! (John Krasinski for Reed Richards, search your feelings, etc.)

Brie as Carol looks fantastic. My money is on (highlight for spoilers, just in case Cap biting the dust in Avengers 4, which prompts Tony to retire from superheroing (while still available to make cameo appearances, naturally), and Bucky picking up the shield--and he and Sam teaming up to fight bad guys, they have an amazing buddy-cop friendship dynamic--while Carol leads the new new Avengers. So far this is giving me good vibes in that direction.

♫ And Moooonica! ♫ (Also hi, Gemma Chan. Between this movie and Crazy Rich Asians, you're kicking box-office butt, aren't you?)

...I would vote in Danny Pudi as Reed Richards. If only because he already looks half-stretched-out.

But Danny Pudi was already a SHIELD agent in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. (My headcanon is that in the Community-verse that was actually Abed Nadir playing that role).

Really interesting appeal here. After months of dreading it, I'm happy knowing Carol's outfit is the real deal (and her Kree outfit looks to be used with the Starforce people). From a design perspective, the Skulls seem pretty real, though I can understand people not liking the design. And the seeds for Monica rambaeu - so cool!

No clue who these folks are

Internet saith the movie starts in media res with Carol having powers and being part of the Kree army's elite team, Starforce, along with Korath (who was a bad guy in Guardians), Att-Lass, Bron-Char, and Minn-Erva. But, internet also saith that the original Starforce was a supervillain lineup, so maybe they're spies or Skrulls or whatever. (Rumour is already rampant Mar-Vell is a Skrull, which I hope they don't do.)
