I thought she was going to obliterate that cat, saying
it was a Skrull!

Ok...I love the visuals.  CGI is touchy on the energy laden flight/fight scenes.....but I have yet to see totally flawless effects on stuff like this...especially in trailers.  

 Her space battle looked very cool and unlike anything yet seen in the MCU.  Visually she will be unique.

I am concerned about the rather stilted...robotic line delivery from the voice over...and in some of Brie Larson's cuts in the trailer.  Surely the director can 'hear' how dull and uninterested she sounds in the voiceover?  Hopefully this won't be a steady aspect of the film.  

'Chewie' (her "cat") is named 'Goose' in this. Nice Top Gun reference name change to avoid any Star Wars weirdness I suppose.

I'm getting the feeling her origin has been revamped to not include 
Mar-Vel at all.  It was recently revealed that Jude Law isn't playing him.  I'll have to see how it plays out in the film.

I really enjoyed the trailer and love the fact that I'm going to see a movie that's some form or another of the Kree/Skrull war.

Given the arc hinted at in the trailer, her sounding cold and robotic seems to be the point. I trust that Larson will play her differently when she’s Carol.

Yup, that sentiment has been shared elsewhere.  But to use what feels like less than impressive dialog/line delivery to actually "sell" the movie seems risky. 

I hope you're right.

Reminder to avoid story details that could potentially spoil the film for those (like me) who want to see this without spoilers.

Watched this trailer during halftime on Monday.  Have to say that I was less than impressed.  First trailer by Marvel that hasn't gotten me jazzed for one of their films.  I've been a huge fan of the character for a very long time, so it's not indifference.  It just didn't grab me like 99.9% of the others have.

Yeah, I'm with you, Matt. No real buzz there.

I was a fan of the Negative Zone-trapped/Rick Jones-summoned iteration of  Mar-Vell, from reprints from my youth. Don't have any iron in the fire particularly as far the Carol Danvers version goes, though I liked Ms Marvel well enough (well, mainly for the awesome Cockrum-designed costume she wore).

Also saw the trailer with the girlfriend, who said it looked horrible and that nothing about it seemed interesting. Then the Aquaman started and I said: "now you're interested" and she: "oh, yeah!"

Looks like a fun, solid time at the theater.  But again, kind of a by-the-numbers trailer from Marvel Studios.
