Captain Marvel was teased in the final moments of Avengers: Infinity War. After witnessing a world-ending event, Nick Fury activated a beacon set within a pager that looked like it was preserved in a time capsule from the 1980s. Captain Marvel's logo appears on the screen. If she's an ally of S.H.I.E.L.D., and has been around for decades, where has she been all of this time? We're about to find out when her standalone film, Captain Marvel, hits theaters on March 8, 2019.

You can take your first look at this period piece that details Captain Marvel's origin story. The trailer focuses heavily on her human life as Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson), and teases all is not as it seems. Danvers apparently has a different life tied to the Kree empire. In a shot we see her on the Kree homeworld of Hala, and in her Kree Starforce uniform. The Skrulls and Ronan the Accuser are also teased.

Marvel put together a hell of a trailer to introduce this powerful character into Marvel's Cinematic Universe. This film can't come soon enough. The wait for the Avengers: Infinity War sequel is too long. We need a Marvel fix, stat!
