The first teaser trailer for Disney/Marvel’s Captain Marvel, the hugely anticipated female-led MCU entry, has dropped. Brie Larson stars as Carol Danvers who becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races, and she finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom. The film is set for domestic release on March 8, 2019 with overseas rollout beginning two days earlier on March 6.
Captain Marvel also stars Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto, Mckenna Grace, Annette Bening and Clark Gregg. Law is the leader of Starforce, the elite Kree military team. Mendelsohn is Talos, head of the opposing green-skinned extraterrestrial humanoid Skrulls. Chan is Minn-Erva, a Kree geneticist and spy who has powers similar to Marvel/Danvers, per the comics-verse.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck direct Captain Marvel from a script by a writing team that includes Boden and Fleck as well as Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch. Kevin Feige is producer. Exec producers are Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Jonathan Schwartz, Patricia Whitcher and Stan Lee.
The movie will mark the penultimate installment of MCU’s Phase 3 which concludes with Anthony and Joe Russo’s untitled Avengers follow-up to Infinity War next May.
