    I like the new trailer. I think it sets up Nick Fury as a co-star rather than a cameo. It's about time Marvel used Fury for a substantial role. Previously, his biggest parts were in Winter Soldier and Avengers 1.

    Larson is a terrific actress. I think she'll bring great things to this movie.

    Because she is a new addition to the MCU which casual moviegoers won't be familiar with, this approach makes sense to me for this trailer. Even though it's in the MCU, they're still treating it as a new property which they have to introduce, and that's smart. To be honest, I'm a bit surprised they haven't featured the two characters from Guardians 1 that people will recognize, although perhaps they want to avoid that in the marketing due to the Gunn situation.

    I agree. If he were in a cameo role, he would probably have the "And Samuel L. Jackson" credit like he did on The Winter Soldier. Since he's second-billed on the poster after Larson, I think that means he's going to be a substantial presence throughout the film. I also agree with everything else you posted. Brie Larson has long been one of my favorite actresses, so her joining the MCU is the merging of two of my favorite things.

    Looks awesome to me! And I have zero problem with her sex kitten voice. :)

    Imagine what Ann-Margret in her prime could have done with this role.:D

    This looks really good. I'll be there opening night.

    I'm still having trouble getting used to Captain Marvel not being this guy/character (having grown up watching this as a kid):

    Man, don't get me started as she was my ultimate sex kitten. I can still remember seeing her in Viva Las Vegas at my local movie theater and getting all excited about her and forgetting about Elvis.

    I know very little about Captain Marvel so I don't have any preconceived ideas about the role. Therefore, I suspect that I'm going to like it more than many of those that are big fans of Captain Marvel.

    It's confusing because they are two completely different characters. In short, the original Captain Marvel was published by Fawcett Comics in the 1940s. It was deemed by a court as being an infringement on DC's Superman character, so they could no longer do anything with the character without DC's involvement. The trademark lapsed and then Marvel Comics decided to create their own Captain Marvel in 1968. DC decided to revive the original Fawcett Comics character in the 1970s (in conjunction with Fawcett). They could no longer use "Captain Marvel" as a title, so they went with "Shazam!". DC was still allowed to call the character Captain Marvel, but only in the context of the comics/TV show.

    In 2011, DC changed the character name to "Shazam!" to avoid further confusion with the Marvel Comics character of the same name.

    Oh no question, the strategy makes sense. It just made it a less exciting trailer for me than the first teaser. I'll still be there opening weekend regardless.

    That movie is coming out a month later:

    To me that trailer was as blah as the first.

    Doing nothing for me. Brie Larson seems terribly miscast and I’m getting that King Skull Island vibe from her acting. Nothing in that trailer looks original or exciting to me.

    I know I’m in the minority and I hope I’m wrong but *yawn* again for me. -_-

    I thought she was tremendous in Room. And pretty terrible in almost everything else I’ve seen her in. KSI being the worst. Imo.

    I don’t hear a baby doll voice, seems like an adult female voice to me.

    That's fine, but her voice is more of a sex kitten similar to Ann-Margret to me.
