'Captain Marvel': All the Easter eggs you missed in the new trailer!
Just like every Marvel movie out there, the trailer drops Easter eggs that may sometimes not be visible to the inexperienced eye.
The second official trailer for 'Captain Marvel' is here and it will give you chills! Brie Larson is absolutely stunning as the noble warrior hero who is fighting a two-dimensional battle - one with the world outside and one within her mind. This trailer picks up from where the first sneak peek left off in September and takes a deep dive into Skrulls and "enemies from above". It features a badass Captain Marvel trying to figure out her origins and recover memories that she's lost. However, just like every Marvel movie out there, the 'Captain Marvel' trailer drops Easter eggs that may sometimes not be visible to the inexperienced eye.
Nick Fury's eye
At the end of the trailer, we see Nick Fury petting a kitty who doesn't seem to be too keen on being friends with him. The kitty is Goose, Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel's cat. Was this cat the reason behind Fury's famous eye patch? Marvel has never explained how or why Samuel L Jackson's character lost an eye. In the comics, Carol's cat is actually named Chewie, who is far from being a common pet. He's a Flerken, which an alien species that can turn into a cat when they need to. They're known to be violent when they are attacked and it is completely possible that Goose (if he's a Flerken) may have felt the need to protect Carol from Fury for whatever reason. Why are cat people in such pain, all the time? Poor Nick.
The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' connection
Another clue the trailer leaves is about Marvel's origins. There's a good chance that Carol's transformation has a lot to do with the fight between the Skrull and Kree warriors. The trailer shows her bleeding green numerous times - an occurrence we haven't seen since 'Guardians of the Galaxy' part 1. If you look closely, there's Korath and Ronan in the trailer, standing behind Carol as she goes off to fight the Skrulls. Considering how Korath and Ronan were bad guys in the films, 'Captain Marvel' will probably tell us about how they went bad. It is also possible that Carol brought them down herself.
Is Carol really a Kree?
Carol is a Kree, or that's what she thinks since her memories have been injected by Annette Benning's character. Benning seems to be a Kree scientist or technician, although rumor was that she was cast as Carol's mom, Marie. Clearly, the trailer shows that she isn't and there's something sinister about the character. Also, if you look closely, you'll see that when Carol is being injected with memories, there's a green Skrull standing next to her looking at someone for instructions. There's also a shot in the trailer that shows that Carol is injected with green blood - indicating that she may not be a Kree at all.
The 'Top Gun' connection
This easter egg has to do with Goose, once again. In the comics, Carol's cat is named Chewie, after Chewbacca. In this film, it looks like the cat has been named after a 'Top Gun' character. Maverick's Naval Flight Officer, Nick 'Goose' Bradshaw. It would make complete sense since she's from the Airforce and Goose is like her sidekick.
'Captain Marvel' will hit theaters on March 8, 2019.
