10 Details You Missed If You Blinked During The New 'Captain Marvel' Trailer

10 Details You Missed If You Blinked During The New 'Captain Marvel' Trailer

The most important takeaway: NICK FURY IS A CAT PERSON AND WE ARE HERE FOR IT.


So, if you haven't heard by now, the next movie to be released in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the heavily anticipated "Captain Marvel." The main character, Carol Danvers, is being portrayed by Brie Larson, who appeared in the first teaser a few months back. On Monday evening, the first official trailer for the film dropped and us Marvel fans HAVE. SOME. THOUGHTS.

1.  Captain Marvel gets in a major fight... with an elderly woman.

In the teaser, we see Carol Danvers punch an older woman in the face, but she isn't as innocent as she looks. As suspected, we see that the woman Danvers punches is a skrull, an alien, in the second trailer. As Nick Fury puts it, "the bad guys." Note that the two alien races are long-time enemies. This will play a key role in this 2019 film.

2. Mar-Vell

Although Marvel hasn't officially told us that Jude Law is playing Mar-Vell, there has been lots of speculation that he will be Danvers long-term Kree acquaintance. There is also speculation that he will play an enemy of hers as well.

3. The Mohawk

Her helmet fades and lets her mohawk down and fall over her shoulders. It's magical. It also looks very similar to the kind of helmet Star-Lord, played by Christ Pratt, from "Guardians of the Galaxy," uses. Is Star-Lord's helmet Kree technology?

4. Her life back on Earth

We see her going through old files of her life on this planet because she can't remember her life fully, only bits and pieces. She even briefly picks up her old dog tags from her time in the airforce that have been broken in half. They now read: Carol Dan-

5. How long has Danvers been missing from Earth?

She trained to be in the military and somehow gets involved in a Kree, Skrull battle, where she obtains powers. Then, later has her memories replaced. What is real? What is true about her past?

6. BINARY. What is that?

We see Carol go into Binary mode. I'm not saying she is the most powerful Avenger, but she can channel the energy of white hole (opposite of a black hole, essentially) and is powerful AF... so you tell me.

7. Ronan the Accuser

The primary villain from the 2014 film, "Guardians of the Galaxy," makes an appearance in this trailer. He is seen very briefly, watching a space battle occur through a large window that looks out into the galaxy.

8. Is SHIELD compromised? 

The same man who voices Captain Marvel's opponent, Talos, is seen giving orders to a group of SHIELD agents later on in the trailer. Has SHIELD been infiltrated by Skrulls?

9.  Which version is the truth?

There are two scenes in the trailer that look oddly similar. It is when Danvers is getting up after being involved in some sort plane crash, but from two different perspectives in different parts of the trailer. One makes it seem like it is a Skrull approaching her, while the other scene shows a little portion of a green uniform, the uniform of the Kree. Is this one of her implanted, false memories?

10. Fury... is a cat person.

Carol's cat is named Chewie in the comics isn't even a cat. It is an alien creature called a flerkin. In the trailer, however, it's name tag reads "Goose." Fury does seem pretty cozied up to this seemingly innocent feline. Maybe that's how he lost his eye...

5 Ways "Legally Blonde" Does Feminism Right

Behind every pink business suit is an empowered woman.

This past week marked the anniversary of the debut of everyone's favorite pink-obsessed, Chihuahua-toting law student. That's right: Elle Woods and "Legally Blonde" turned 15 on July 13, and to celebrate the occasion I watched the movie for the first time. I had heard more about Elle's bend and snap than her status as a feminist icon, so I was surprised to find the movie was a treasure trove of feminism. Here are just a few of the ways the movie displayed female empowerment:

1. Tight, supportive friendships between women.

At the heart of this movie are the relationships between Elle and the women around her, from her sorority sisters to her manicurist to her former nemesis. All of these women can be petty and shallow, but they also display encouragement, empathy and loyalty. They don't let differences in status and lifestyle or squabbles over a man's affection prevent them from forming strong friendships.

2. Women prove they deserve positions of power...

Did you notice how many high-power roles in the movie were filled by women? The first (and scariest) law professor at Harvard, the judge in the court, and many of Elle's fully qualified (and Ph.D.-holding) classmates were women. Moreover, some of the men in power, such as Elle's sleazy law professor, were shown to abuse their power. The movie doesn't hesitate to reassign traditional roles to those, male or female, who best deserve them.

3. ...and can pretty much do whatever they put their mind to...

It's a movie about a girl with a bachelor's degree in fashion who decides she's going to Harvard on a whim--and succeeds. Yes, she had to work hard to get there, but that's just the point: when everyone told her she was too girly and stupid to achieve her goals, she showed them that she was capable of anything, and she wasn't going to let their preconceived ideas affect her success.

4. ...without sacrificing their femininity.

Some people seem to think that feminists can't also be feminine. But Elle, through her often alarmingly pink outfits and the way she wins trials by knowing basic hair care, shows that it's possible to be both. It's a reminder that feminism doesn't demand that women stop shaving their legs and wear baggy clothes; rather, it just asserts women's right and ability to be whoever they want, regardless of society's expectations.

5. Women don't need no men, but they don't hate them.

Throughout the movie, Elle grows to understand her worth and potential independent from the men around her. She doesn't hesitate to remove them from her life if they become toxic influences, and she helps her friends make similar progress. But that doesn't mean the women of this movie are man-haters. Paulette makes a good example: she was able to move on from a man who treated her poorly, and would've thrived by herself, but she was willing to invest in a man who was actually worth her time.

"Legally Blonde" has a lot of lessons to teach women about empowerment. So remember this film the next time you need encouragement, motivation, or just want to watch a woman kick the patriarchy's butt.

11 Movies I'm Looking Forward To In 2019, Get Ready, Oscars

I won't have to wait long to see these.


2018 has come and gone. With a new year comes new movies. Here are some that I'm so excited about, and like always, in no particular order.

1. "Glass" (Jan. 2019)

This is the last chapter in the trilogy with "Unbreakable" and "Split" from M. Night Shyamalan. With James McAvoy, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Willis, and many more actors in this movie, it will be unforgettable and scary.

2. "It: Chapter 2" (September 2019)

I loved the first "It" movie and I'm sure the second one won't disappoint. When the kids from the first movie come back 27 years later as adults to fight Pennywise, more horror and adventure awaits. For people afraid of clowns, beware of this movie.

3. "Happy Death Day 2U" (Valentine's Day 2019)

The sequel to the 2017 film. The cast is back as Tree and her friends get stuck in the same time loop as the first movie and they must find a way to get out. I loved the first movie and I am happy that I won't have to wait long to see this.

4. "The Addams Family" (Oct. 2019)

This 3D animated film is about the iconic family that is mysterious, creepy, and spooky, in this modern-day retelling. I've always wanted to see "The Addams Family" so for this movie to come out is exciting.

5. "Annabelle 3" (July 2019)

While this movie doesn't have a name yet, I am so excited for this next chapter in the "Conjuring" series to be released. This is supposed to take place before the first movie but after the introduction scene in the first movie. I hope some questions from "The Nun" are answered.

6. "The Secret Life Of Pets 2" (June 2019)

I loved the original since it was so cute and funny. With this sequel, who knows what trouble these pets will face.

7. "Aladdin" (May 2019)

I love the live action remakes of the Disney movies. The movie looks stunning and I'm sure this movie is going to blow everyone away.

8. Tyler Perry's "A Madea Family Funeral" (March 2019)

I've grown up loving the outspoken, crazy old lady. However, it's sad that this is the last film in this series. Hopefully Madea doesn't die.

9. "Serenity" (Jan. 2019)

With this suspenseful, Neo-Noir film, this is going to be good. When a sailor is approached to kill his ex-wife's new husband, the suspense builds.

10.  "A Dog's Way Home" (Jan. 2019)

When a therapy dog gets lost she must find her way back home. With a cute dog as the protagonist, this is going to be an emotional movie.

11.  "Toy Story 4" (June 2019)

I grew up watching and loving the "Toy Story" films. As an adult, I'm so excited to watch the fourth installment.
