How imminent, you say? Try Wednesday, June 13th, when the Powers That Be are expected to lift the curtain on Carol Danvers’ solo adventure. The reveal will take place at the ongoing CineEurope event in Barcelona, if a now-deleted Instagram post (h/t Heroic Hollywood) is to be believed.
Embedded below, the photo clearly shows a Captain Marvel-themed set chair with the caption, “I can’t wait for a first teaser trailer! Maybe Wednesday at CineEurope, Barcelona – fingers crossed!” Keep in mind that Marvel Studios is yet to announce anything official, and may well hold fire until D23 kicks off before lifting the lid on its first female-fronted superhero movie. And that’s not a phrase to be taken lightly.
Even still, this image suggests that there is at least an outside chance that Kevin Feige and co. will drop said teaser trailer on Wednesday:
Don’t take this as gospel, as there’s a good chance Marvel is playing its cards close to the vest when it comes to the pic. Besides, Ant-Man and the Wasp is due to hit theaters next month, and it would certainly make sense to get the first Captain Marvel teaser out alongside Scott Lang’s next miniature adventure – if not a bit ahead – so that it can be played in front of the biggest audience possible.
Because according to Marvel boss Kevin Feige, the studio is 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.
As for the aforementioned trailer, we’d imagine the studio showing it to those in attendance at CineEurope before debuting it online in July, ahead of Ant-Man and the Wasp. But as soon as we get something concrete, we’ll be sure to let you know.
