Sorry Marvel: Captain Marvel’s Trailers Remain Underwhelming
You’ve probably seen it. The first official trailer for Marvel’s upcoming blockbuster Captain Marvel was released today and frankly… I have to say that things have not improved for the better since the first teaser.
Captain Marvel’s teaser trailer was released in September, and frankly it didn’t impressed me all that much. Back then I wrote that it’s unimpressive, underwhelming, flat and all around MEH. Vanilla cookie cutter trailer that doesn’t pack a punch.
And the first official trailer for Captain Marvel didn’t do better today. Seriously. The latest trailer is snooze inducing, despite the fact that we get to see (yet again) Brie Larson punching an old lady. The editors chose (yet again) the corniest, clichéd lines to put in the 2 and a half minutes of promotional video, and the trailer itself has no excitement, despite the occasional explosions.
You get nothing when you see it, which frankly is not something you experience when you’re watching a Marvel trailer. I remember how hyped I was when I saw Thor Ragnarok trailer, The Black Panther trailer and even the trailers for half of the Marvel produced TV series.
The official trailer for Captain Marvel put me in a coma, and I’m a scared that this will become Marvel’s first flop.
Yes, I’m aware that big portion of the PR and marketing campaign will focus on the fact that this is Marvel’s first solo movie featuring female character, and a plenty of focus will be put on Brie’s achievements. She’s an Oscar winner, she’s a feminist, and in her late 20’s but I’m afraid that Marvel made a huge mistake when they chose her for this role.
I’ve said this before, and I’ll said it again… Hell… I’ll write it down once more. Larson has got NO charisma. She may be incredible actress, but she’s more suitable for heavy drama movies that require a lot of emotions, crying and character acting. Marvel movies are a different beast. Mark my words. She’s miscast in the role of Carol Danvers and come March, you’ll figure it out for yourself.
Captain Marvel, also has Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Rune Temte, Algenis Perez Soto, Mckenna Grace, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law in the rest of the roles.
Captain Marvel opens on March 8 2019.
