Following a photo leak last week showing this week's schedule for Good Morning America, complete with a listing for "Captain Marvel Trailer Debut," comes confirmation from ABC that star Brie Larson will indeed be a guest on Tuesday's episode. So, yes, it's all but certain that Marvel Studios will debut the first look at Captain Marvel on Tuesday morning. But the question remains, at what time?
The choice of Good Morning America for the trailer debut is a bit of corporate synergy, of course, as Disney owns both Marvel and ABC. The top-rated morning show was used in November 2017 to unveil the teaser trailer for Avengers: Infinity War; it's also where star Mark Ruffalo inadvertently spoiled the ending of the Marvel Studios blockbuster, although nobody really noticed at the time (and here everyone worries about Tom Holland spilling the beans).
Although Marvel released images and initial details earlier this month about the 1990s-set Captain Marvel, the trailer on Tuesday will be the first footage seen by fans, bringing with it the hope of filling in some of the gaps -- like, is Jude Law playing Mar-Vell, where Larson's Carol Danvers has been all of these years, and how it all ties into the post-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War. Odds are the trailer won't reveal any of that, fans will scour every second in search of clues.
So, at what time should those obsessive fans tune into Good Morning America on Tuesday? To be safe, they should probably set their alarms for 8:30 a.m. ET/5:30 a.m. PT. However, it's likely GMA will push the trailer premiere to as close to 9 a.m. ET/6 a.m. PT as possible, while still leaving time for an appearance by Larson.
Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman and Geneva Robertson-Dworet, Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce, Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, and Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau. The film arrives on March 8, 2019.
