The first trailer for the film was revealed in September. That trailer gave fans their first look at Brie Larson's Carol Danvers in action, as well as hinting at her mysterious past, which involves her seemingly being born on Earth but trained for war by the Kree Empire. Carol eventually goes on to join Starforce, an elite combat squad led by Jude Law's character in the film.

Captain Marvel is shaping up to be a highly anticipated MCU film, as the titular character is assumed to play a pivotal role in Avenger 4 due to that film's post-credits tease. What role Carol plays in the fourth Avengers film, and just what exactly is going on with her in regards to her past, won't be revealed until next year, but this second trailer put us one step closer to her solo debut.
