The first “Captain Marvel” trailer debuted Tuesday on Good Morning America, introducing Brie Larson as the newest superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

The trailer begins with Carol Danvers, a.k.a. Captain Marvel, crashing to Earth, already with her powers and little memory of her past. The movie’s 1990s setting is put on full display early on, as Danvers lands inside of a Blockbuster Video.

Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury narrates the beginning of the trailer, and says, “I was ready to hang it up, ’til I met you today,” referring to Danvers. The movie features Fury as a young S.H.I.E.L.D. “desk jockey” before he’s met any superheroes. That all changes when he comes into contact with Danvers, who says in the trailer that she “keeps having these memories. I see flashes. I think I had a life here.”

The trailer flashes back to Danvers’ time in the Air Force with her friend, presumably before she becomes Captain Marvel and joins the police force of the Kree alien race, Starforce, which directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck described to Entertainment Weekly as “as the SEAL Team Six of space.”

We get glimpses of the alien race that the Kree are at war with, the Skrulls, including the fact that they can shape-shift to look like humans (Danvers punches an old woman, who we can assume is, hopefully, a Skrull).

The trailer ends with a glimpse at Danvers in her full, red, gold, and blue Captain Marvel suit. The character will debut in her solo movie on March 8, 2019 before joining the fight against Thanos in the “Avengers: Infinity War” sequel in May.
