Fury continues to narrate the footage: "Space invasion, big auto chase - truth be told, I was ready to hang it up until I met you today". But just before he turned to dust, Fury sent a pager message to Carol Danvers, presumably to summon her back to Earth and help sort everything out in Avengers 4. Prior to that, she operated as Ms. Marvel for nearly 30 years, headlining her own solo series in the "70s and '00s as well as enjoying multiple stints as one of the Avengers" heavy-hitters.
Like most other Marvel reveals, the trailer was dropped on Good Morning America - with Brie Larson presenting it in person before sending the rest of the world into a mad YouTube scramble to try and rewatch it as soon as possible.
"I keep having these memories", she says.More news: 'Fortnite' Is Adding a Port-a-Fortress Item

This poster's tagline of "Higher, Further, Faster" seems to be speaking to the sheer power of Captain Marvel.
But the trailer ends on Carol, generating massive amounts of energy and warning, "I'm not what you think I am". The film is written and directed by Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, Marvel's first female director. Since then the Marvel Cinematic Universe has grown exponentially and studio executives have realised that a woman leading her own comic book movie can be incredibly successful (thanks Wonder Woman!). The cast also includes Lashana Lynch and Gemma Chan, along with Ben Mendelsohn, Jude Law, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, and McKenna Grace.
The film is set to be released on March 9, 2019. Watch the full trailer above.
