The new clip was released Monday night, giving fans even more to marvel at the upcoming comic book epic, starring Brie Larson as the titular fighter pilot turned superhero.
This second glimpse at the upcoming tentpole expands upon some of the more wonderfully mysterious imagery from the first trailer, which showcased that Larson’s character’s origin is twofold. Yes, she’s from Earth but she doesn’t remember her life as U.S. Air Force fighter pilot Carol Danvers beyond mere flashes. After an accident, she was found by the Kree, an alien race, who fused her DNA with their own, making her the powerful titular superhero.
“So, Skrulls are the bad guys?” a young Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson, with the help of some impressive CGI) asks Danvers in the clip. “And you’re a Kree — a race of noble warriors?”
“Heroes.” she corrects. “Noble warrior heroes.”
The trailer also gives a closer look at some of the film’s new characters, including Annette Bening as a Kree leader and Jude Law as Danvers’ Starforce mentor, Mar-Vell.
Beyond her origin story, the film will show Larson’s character as she finds herself at the center of an intergalactic war raging between the two alien races, promising plenty of explosive action on Earth and well beyond.
