The most anticipated TV spot during the Big Game was the one for Avengers: Endgame by a long shot, but Marvel Studios also gave us an exciting new spot for Captain Marvel that was pure adrenaline. The new spot doesn’t add much to flesh out Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as a character, other than that her motto is to aim “higher, further, faster,” both in her civilian identity as a pilot and as the cosmic superhero who will hopefully defy space and time to return to give Earth’s Mightiest Heroes (and The Guardians) a little help against Thanos (Josh Brolin) in what may be the super-team’s final battle, but its energy alone makes it stand out, especially given the somber tone of the Endgame spot.
Captain Marvel was directed by the team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Mississipi Grind), from a script they wrote with Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Liz Flahive & Carly Mensch. Samuel L. Jackson returns as Nick Fury. Lee Pace and Djimon Hounsou reprise their Guardians of the Galaxy roles as Ronan the Accuser and Korath. Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Algenis Perez Soto, Rune Temte, McKenna Grace, and Jude Law also star.
Captain Marvel opens in theaters on March 8th.
