You probably already know this, but Brie Larson is playing Captain Marvel in the upcoming film of the same name. She’s the first woman to headline a solo superhero movie from Marvel Studios, which many consider a big deal. Larson does not.

The first trailer for Captain Marvel was big but we hadn’t seen anything yet. Now the second trailer is here, and the worlds of Carol Danvers have exploded onto the scene in ways that are sure to make your own head explode.
It’s nearly four years to the day since Marvel announced Captain Marvel was going to be part of its Cinematic Universe. Since we’ve waited, civil wars have been fought, Thanos has come and culled half of existence, and little by little we’ve had teases of her arrival. And now we finally have our first look at her in action.
Pretty much from the get-go, it’s been reported that Jude Law’s Captain Marvel character is actually the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s take on the first Captain Marvel, the Kree warrior Mar-Vell. And as we’ve learned tidbits about the role, that belief has only gotten stronger, even as Law himself keeps refusing to acknowledge it.
Unlike all of Marvel’s other solo superhero movies, Captain Marvel isn’t exactly about a person learning how to become heroic, but rather about its titular hero discovering just who and what she really is. We’re excited to see where the MCU and directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck go with this one, and some new photos released today give us a decent idea.
With Avengers: Infinity War behind us, one of the biggest questions on everyone's mind is just where a certain hero who's slated to make her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut next year has been this entire time. We're speaking of course about Carol Danvers, better known as Captain Marvel. And the Brie Larson-starring Captain Marvel film has just added another huge name to its cast: Annette Bening.
Everyone was surprised at San Diego Comic-Con this winter when Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige announced that the Captain Marvel movie would not only feature Nick Fury and the Skrulls, but also take place in the 1990s. That means the character was an arse-kicking hero long before Tony Stark revealed to the world he was Iron Man.
King Kong started his reign in 1933, but it didn't last long. He was eventually overshadowed by Godzilla and a crowd of B-movie pretenders for decades, to the point where even Peter Jackson's attempt to revive him in 2005 couldn't help. But with Kong: Skull Island, director Jordan Vogt-Roberts has created an action-packed spectacle truly worthy of its giant, majestic star.
Video: I have zero doubts that this final trailer for Kong: Skull Island, released less than two weeks before the film's release, is filled with spoilers. But I really don't care. It is simply one of the most incredible, monster-filled, action-packed trailers we've seen in a long time, and we love it.
