War is a Universal Language in First Captain Marvel Trailer

So take a peek below and get the first taste of the MCU's first female-led, standalone superhero movie. She's confused as to where she is, as she undoubtedly came from space. She clearly doesn't remember that in the trailer, but we'll touch on that dilemma in a bit. Because while fans knew about the bare bones of Captain Marvel's story, there is no way they could have predicted the type of project that the blockbuster appears to be.

There is also a shot of Captain Marvel hung upside down with some machine attached to her head. Cue, a couple of popular Agents of SHIELD taking her in their fold, as she fights amnesia and shape-shifting Skrulls across space and Earth.

Brie Larson in and as Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel has superhuman strength and the ability to fly because her DNA was fused with an alien's genes in an accident. But first, we have to see how these two heroes meet. Gotta be a darn and dirty Skrull!

But what did you think of the Captain Marvel trailer and what other big tidbits have we missed from the trailer?

Florence Flooding In The Carolinas: ‘The Worst Is Yet To Come’
President Donald Trump has also announced plans to visit the flood-hit region this week but a date has not yet been set. The National Weather Service considers flooding to be "devastating " once a height of 23 feet is reached for the river .

Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou are reprising their roles from the Guardians of the Galaxy as Ronan and Korath respectively. The appearance of Nick Fury's pager in the trailer is a nice nod to the Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scene, which gave us our first hint of how important Captain Marvel was going to be for Avengers 4, but you might have missed something in all the excitement.

Comic book fans should recognize Captain Marvel's helmet (which also looks to be a part of the Hasbro action figure line).

The film also sees a young Nick Fury - AKA Samuel L. Jackson - way before he's become the non-nonsense, somewhat cynical director of S.H.I.E.L.D. that we know and love. Kevin Feige previously revealed she is Marvel's most powerful superhero to date. The cast includes Brie Larson as Carol Danvers / Captain Marvel, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, Jude Law as Walter Lawson / Mar-Vell, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, and Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva.

The trailer sees Brie meeting Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury after a period of time spent away from planet earth, power up as Captain Marvel and punch a smiling old lady in the face (who is nearly certainly an alien in disguise - we hope).
