The first Captain Marvel trailer premiered earlier today on ABC (owned by Marvel Studios parent The Walt Disney Company).

To say that Captain Marvel is still six months away, this first trailer establishes the tone of what we can expect: a sci-fi action film about the most powerful hero in the universe.

It doesn’t make me as excited as Marvel Studios’ other initial trailers, but that’s to be expected when I have nothing invested in it so far, other than the production logo. That’s why, following six months and over two years of pre-established characters, there’s an uphill struggle in marketing this. So I think we can expect to become interested over time as we get closer to the film’s release.

After all, this trailer will be the first time that many people are aware of the Carol Danvers character, who first became Captain Marvel in July 2012’s Avenging Spider-Man #9. That means that, before anything else, the fundamentals have to be established. And this trailer shows us that Danvers is a human enhanced by aliens to become a powerful hero. That’s all we’re being shown so far, but that’s all we need to be shown.
