The second trailer for 2019’s Captain Marvel was released on the big screen, during an NFL game between the Washington Redskins and Super Bowl champions, the Philadelphia Eagles.
The second clip continues the storyline of the first trailer, shown to the general public in September and since earning a whopping 46 million views, in which Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson punches out an older woman, a suspected enemy-in-disguise.
Now, the old lady is full of bellicose vigour herself and looks determined to grab the biggest piece of the pie.
The video also shows a set of vivid flashbacks reconstructing how a once a cute little girl named Carol Danvers grew to become ace military pilot Captain Marvel, who returns to Earth being gifted with superpowers in the wake of an intergalactic battle between two species, the Krees and the Skrulls.
“Would you like to know what you really are?” that’s a query that Danvers still has to answer, in the upcoming productions by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
"I keep having these memories," she tells Nick Fury, who is played by a digitally de-aged, two-eyed Samuel L. Jackson. "Something in my past is the key to all of this."
Judging by the new trailer, the robust thinker and enthusiastic doer Captain Marvel is still preparing to have her say, while remaining true to her comic-book origins. A question remains, however, of how great her powers are, as fans presumably remember her signature skill of thrusting electric blue bolts of energy, so-called “Krees” lightning, which she gained after the Krees rescued her and led her to a rebirth as a new Kree in the intergalactic space.
Cinemaholic Twitter users naturally picked up on the news, sharing their incredible excitement at the upcoming big-screen production:
“Who will win if Superman confronts Captain Marvel? I’m whole-heartedly for Captain, she is a cutie”, one wrote in Russian, while another responded: “Epic!” 'Captain Marvel as a separate type of art,' another enthusiastic viewer remarked.
'Call 911. I am feeling bad,' one chimed in.
“Perfect trailer!” another Twitterian said, however adding that Brie “lacks something”.
Humorous remarks also naturally poured in:

Can't find them?
That's because they live among us, looking like normal people. The only real difference is they're going to hell.
Some even posted hilarious photos and videos of the iconic publisher’s fandom:

There were those, however, who questioned Larson's suitability for the role:
"Captain Marvel" looks genuinely bad. This film looks so weak that even Samuel L. Jackson couldn't save the second preview. The lead actress can't deliver a line. Not. One. Believable. Line. However, it did inspire one thing: a meme. Here you go, Twitterverse. Have at thee. pic.twitter.com/r7giUA3jln— JamesDeanAnderson (@JamesDeanAnder1) 4 декабря 2018 г.
The new CAPTAIN MARVEL trailer does zero to change my impression that the movie's going to be CRAP.— Jason Robinson (@JRobinzson) 4 декабря 2018 г.
Brie Larson still fails to show any range of emotion as the character, is the LEAST interesting part of the trailer and doesn't give us 1 reason why we should care about her. 😒
Captain Marvel, a prequel of sorts to Iron Man, Captain America: The First Avenger, The Incredible Hulk, and Thor, hits theatres in early March. That’s less than two months before the long-awaited Avengers: Infinity War sequel, which will also star Larson.
