When fans got our first look at Captain Marvel earlier this year with its debut teaser trailer, many viewers were bewildered as to why the "hero" would clock an old lady in the jaw. Tonight's new trailer has confirmed the prevailing theory regarding the character, which is that she's actually a shape-shifting Skrull who brought the blow on herself.
The story follows Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) 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.
While many fans were immediately taken with Larson's take on the character and the film's exciting action in the new trailer, others were too focused on the surprising acrobatic skills of the old woman on the bus who battles the Marvel hero.
