Marvel/Disney has released a trailer for Captain Marvel. The effects look great, if nothing else:
It continues the Mar/Dis bringing together the “cosmic” cinematic universe with the more Earth-bound stories. I’m jazzed to see Samuel L. Jackson again, and I’m interested to see what’s going to be made of the Kree and [SPOILER] war coming to our little planet.
I’m sure it’ll also generate a lot of “what could have been” speculation if Marvel and Disney had possessed the rights to the X-Men franchise years ago. In the comics, Rogue famously uses her mutant abilities on Captain Marvel, touching her long enough to make the transfer of Carol Danvers’ powers and memories permanent. This leads to Rogue not only getting flying brick powers, but also being unstable as two sets of memories fight for dominance in her mind. I say this knowing that these details might have been retconned in the current comic universe, though I’m not certain.
Maybe they’ll save that for the eventual cinematic universe reboot?
