Will There Be a ‘Captain Marvel’ Trailer During the Super Bowl?

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

We are so close now to the end of this drought in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “Avengers: Infinity War” dropped the wildest cliffhanger we’ve ever seen in a blockbuster franchise, and “Ant-Man and the Wasp” two months later was set before and during that whole thing. But finally, “Captain Marvel” promises to, even though it’s set decades before “Avengers: Endgame,” move the plot forward a bit when it comes out on March 8.

Disney’s marketing campaign for “Captain Marvel” has been robust, with two full trailers plus a 90-second “special look” during the college football national championship game in early January. TV spots have been rolling out regularly, and they even dropped a 60-second action sequence on YouTube on Saturday.

So if there ever were a moment for Disney to kick the hype into overdrive, an ad during the Super Bowl five weeks before release would be perfect. But is that going to happen?

Officially, we do not know what Disney’s plans are for the Super Bowl, for “Captain Marvel” or “Avengers: Endgame” or “Toy Story 4” or anything else on the company’s schedule for 2019. We suspect a trailer for “Endgame” is imminent — it just would be the right time for it — but what’s next for the marketing on “Captain Marvel” is anyone’s guess.

It would make sense to really fire up the TV campaign with a Super Bowl ad, but you have to wonder whether they’d want to run trailers for two different MCU movies in the same day. They may want to just do one. And if they have to pick one it would probably be the next “Avengers” movie because we’ve only seen that single, cryptic trailer so far for that one.

On the other hand, both “Infinity War” and “Black Panther” got Super Bowl spots a year ago, so there’s certainly precedent for Disney doing both. But this is all guesswork — we do not know the answer to this question yet. But our feeling is that it’s very likely we’ll get an “Avengers: Endgame” trailer and more of a coin flip whether we get a “Captain Marvel” one as well. We’ll find out soon enough.

It feels like it’s been about 800 years since “Ant-Man and the Wasp” came out last summer and initiated the longest drought between movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in years, but we’re now just five weeks away from the end of that drought with “Captain Marvel” hitting screens on March 8.

Marvel Studios is ramping up the hype train now, dropping an actual scene from the movie on YouTube Saturday morning that shows an extended look of the sequence in which Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) fights against a disguised Skrull on top of a Los Angeles Metro train.

We’ve seen portions of this sequence before in various trailers. The start of this scene was the most talked about part of the first trailer — you know, the part where Captain Marvel punches an old lady who, we assume, is actually a shapeshifting alien Skrull pretending to be human.

The clip here focuses on the part of the fight that takes place on the roof of the train, though it’s likely a condensed version of the sequence. Here she’s doing battle with an extremely dad-looking guy wearing a suburbanite sweater and khakis, an amusing detail we had not seen before. I guess the Skrulls are going all in on being as boring looking as possible while they try to hide.

Samuel L. Jackson and Clark Gregg also make a brief appearance in the clip as de-aged Nick Fury and Phil Coulson. This is just the second time we’ve seen Coulson in the “Captain Marvel” marketing and the first time we’ve seen him speak.

We assume this bit takes place pretty early in the movie, when Carol first arrives on Earth to hunt these Skrulls. It seems like Fury and Coulson are not working with her at this point, and are instead just following the fight to try to figure out what’s going on.

But that’s just our guess. We’ll find out for sure on March 8.

It’s been an excruciating last few months for fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — going without a new movie since “Ant-Man and the Wasp” at the beginning of July — but we’re now only two months away from “Captain Marvel.” And on Monday night Disney dropped a new trailer for Marvel’s first woman-led superhero spectacular.

At first glance the clip is light on new information — the marketing campaign has really leaned in on the bromance between Carol Danvers and young(er) Nick Fury, and this new trailer is no exception. But this time out we did get to see some more scenes between Captain Marvel and her mentor (yes, it’s Mar-Vell), played by Jude Law, and some more of the film’s humor. Also, in case you weren’t certain this takes place in the mid-90s, Elastica’s 1994 hit single “Connection” provides the background music.

“Captain Marvel” will introduce us to the most powerful hero yet in the MCU. And, we strongly suspect, tell a story that will play some role in Thanos setting off on his crusade that culminated in “Avengers: Infinity War.”

Despite the focus on a new face in Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), “Captain Marvel” will also include a number of familiar characters, including Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), Ronan the Accuser (Lee Pace) and SHIELD agent Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg).

The main thrust of the story will see Captain Marvel, an operative of the alien Kree, chasing a group of shapeshifting Skrull rebels to Earth. That villainous group will be led by Ben Mendolsohn’s Talos.

In addition to Larson, Jackson an Mendolsohn, the main players in “Captain Marvel” will be Annette Bening, Jude Law and Gemma Chan. It was written by Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck, Geneva Dworet-Robertson and Jac Schaeffer from a story by Nicole Perlman, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse.

Boden and Fleck are also the directors.

Djimon Hounsou, Clark Gregg Join ‘Captain Marvel’ Cast

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Marvel Studios announced on Monday that production has begun on the MCU’s first female-fronted entry, “Captain Marvel,” which will star Brie Larson as the titular superheroine.

But tucked into the announcement was the reveal that “Guardians of the Galaxy” stars Djimon Hounsou and Lee Pace will also be a part of the film — as will Clark Gregg, who will reprise his role as Agent Coulson from “Avengers” movies as well as ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD.”

In the first “Guardians” film, Pace played the film’s villain, Ronan the Accuser, with Hounsou playing one of his most formidable warriors, Korath the Pursuer. While their roles in “Captain Marvel” haven’t been made official, the upcoming film takes place in the 1990s, so it is possible that the two actors could reprise their characters from several years before they faced the Guardians.

“Captain Marvel” follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the MCU’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races.

The cast also includes Samuel L. Jackson, who will return as a pre-eyepatch Nick Fury. Ben Mendelsohn, Gemma Chan, Lashana Lynch, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace and Jude Law also star.

“Mississippi Grind” directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck are directing the film from a script they co-wrote with some of the top women writers in Hollywood: “Inside Out” writer Meg LeFauve, “Guardians of the Galaxy” co-writer Nicole Perlman, “Tomb Raider” writer Geneva Robertson-Dworet, and “GLOW” creators Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch.

“Captain Marvel” hits theaters March 8, 2019.

12 Marvel Movie Stars Against Donald Trump (Photos)

Read on: TheWrapTheWrap.

Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr. shared a star-studded, anti-Trump video as part of a drive to get out the vote ahead of the election. It also featured his Marvel movie co-stars: Scarlett Johansson, Don Cheadle, Mark Ruffalo and Clark Gregg.

Captain America himself, Chris Evans, denounced President-elect Trump on election night, tweeting, “This is an embarrassing night for America. We’ve let a hatemonger lead our great nation. We’ve let a bully set our course. I’m devastated.”

Evans continued to express his alarm over Trump in the days following the election.

The election was “a direct blow to the dreamers, to the empathizers, to those who dare to hope,” wrote Brie Larson, who will star in “Captain Marvel,” in a piece she wrote for Lena Dunham’s website, Lenny.

Larson has shared a litany of anti-Trump posts in recent weeks, ones that call for a recount, for electors to vote against Trump, and ones like this from the ACLU which raise concerns over a Trump-run White House.

Mark Ruffalo plays The Hulk in the “Avengers” series, but offscreen he’s  passionate activist who has been open about his disdain for Trump.

Ruffalo urged his Twitter followers to “keep your eye on the ball” when it comes to Trump, warning them to stay focused on important issues and not get distracted by the president-elect’s bombastic tweets.

Lupita Nyong’o, star in the upcoming “Black Panther,” was more pro-Hillary than anti-Trump, sharing her support on Twitter on Election Day.

Chadwick Boseman, Black Panther himself, shared a similarly pro-Clinton stance on Election Day.

Comic book creator Stan Lee, who famously appears in Marvel movie cameos, hasn’t directly gone out against Trump, but did share “some thoughts on #respect for what feels like a troubled time” on Twitter.

New Zealander Taika Waititi, director of the upcoming “Thor: Ragnarok,” shared his negative interpretation of the election results.

“Avengers” series director Joss Whedon has has not minced words on Twitter when it comes to his decided opposition to a Trump administration.
