Captain Marvel Gets The Honest Trailers Treatment


After every geek-friendly movie release comes two must-watch videos on YouTube: How It Should Have Ended, the recurring video series in which a group of skilled animators imagine alternate finales to their favorite films, and Honest Trailers.

The latter is a Screen Junkies production covering everything from Glass to Con Air – hell, even the Keanu Reeves action classic Speed made its way onto the list not so long ago. And now, to mark Captain Marvel‘s Blu-ray release, Screen Junkies has turned its attention to the standalone superhero epic.

It’s the 21st installment in Marvel’s cinematic juggernaut and the first to feature Brie Larson in a starring role. It certainly won’t be the last, either, given there’ve been rumblings that Larson has already committed to a multi-picture contract big enough to rival even Robert Downey Jr.’s, whose time headlining the MCU has well and truly come to an end.

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it’s time for Captain Marvel to get the Honest Trailers treatment – a movie about a “hotshot flying soldier with amnesia who’s just trying to figure out who she really is: a hotshot flying soldier without amnesia.”

Now available across Blu-ray and DVD, Captain Marvel has well and truly cemented its place among the MCU pantheon – and that’s despite the asinine Internet campaign that attempted to derail the film in its entirety. It’s since amassed over $1.1 billion in box office receipts, so let’s just say the online trolls didn’t have much of an effect on Carol’s success.

Exactly when Brie Larson’s heroine will return is another question entirely, as we imagine Marvel Studios is already making progress on a Captain Marvel sequel. Whatever the case, next on the calling card is Spider-Man: Far From Home, which is expected to make a beeline for theaters early next month. And only then will MCU Phase 4 begin in earnest.
