The new “Captain Marvel” clip released this week is all action, with Carol Danvers suited up and using her powers to take on a Skrull on top of a moving train. Marvel Studios has already released several trailers for the film, and now clips will be the new releases leading up to the big debut this March.
As the first female lead for a Marvel film, fans should be pretty excited to see “Captain Marvel” when it hits theaters on March 8, 2019. Brie Larson plays the titular character in the new MCU installment; the film also features Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Clark Gregg, and Annette Bening.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck directed the film.
“Captain Marvel” will need to beat “Black Panther” to become the highest-grossing opening for a solo character in the MCU. The king of Wakanda made over $202M on the film’s opening weekend, easily topping the charts in 2018. Robert Downey’s “Iron Man” had a $98M debut at the time of its release, and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” opened with $94M. “Doctor Strange” opened with $85M in 2016, and “Thor” opened with $65.7M over its opening weekend. “Captain America: The First Avenger” opened with $65M and the 2003 version of “The Hulk” had a $62M opening. Marvel’s “Ant-Man’ opened with $57M during the film’s opening weekend.
A new “Avengers: Endgame” trailer should debut during the Super Bowl this weekend, the last trailer hit the internet back in December.
The events of “Captain Marvel” take place in the 1990s, before the events of “Avengers: Infinity War” and other MCU installments. Tickets for the movie are already on sale through Fandango and Atom tickets, so if you want to go on opening day, you might want to grab them early.
