The first Captain Marvel teaser trailer is imminent, it seems.
How imminent, you say? Try 15 days, or so says Clark Gregg. Well, either that or September 15th. Either way, something’s coming down the pipeline, as the actor took to Instagram this weekend to post a mysterious image of the number 15. Without a caption to accompany it, all we can do is speculate, but as mentioned above, most fans believe it’s a reference to the trailer arriving in either 15 days or on September 15th.
After all, Black Panther‘s first teaser landed in June 2017 while the film dropped in cinemas in February. That’s a similar gap between now and Captain Marvel, so you never know, maybe the studio will surprise us. Still, we’d advise taking this all with a grain of salt until we hear directly from Kevin Feige and co.
Front and center for this one is, of course, Oscar-winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, an air force pilot whose DNA’s fused with that of an extra-terrestrial following a near-death experience. What follows is an origin story unlike any we’ve ever seen before, so it’s small wonder why we keep hearing that Captain Marvel is going to be the most powerful hero in the MCU yet.

For more on what to expect, here’s a reminder of the cosmic story, courtesy of the studio:
The story follows Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to Feige, Marvel’s pulling for a Wonder Woman-sized hit when it comes to Captain Marvel, and while DC’s Immortal Warrior is arguably the more popular character, it’ll be fascinating to see how the standalone movie fares when it finally takes flight on March 8th, 2019.
