The second Captain Marvel trailer just dropped on the Internet and I wanted to share it here for you to watch and comment on. Captain Marvel takes place in the 90's as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel heads back to Earth for reasons unknown with some incredible super powers.

MCU Lore Because Why Not?

I'm not gonna pretend i'm the person with the most Marvel knowledge but it seems Captain Marvel's Kree connection is a huge focus on this trailer and I remembered something about the Kree from past MCU films so I looked it up.

Yondu had a line from Guardians of the Galaxy 2 about being enslaved by the Kree.

Yondu: "I was a Kree battle slave for twenty years when Stakar freed me."

Seems Ronan from the original Guardians of the Galaxy was a Kree and not a particularly nice one.

"They call me terrorist. Radical. Zealot. Because I obey the ancient laws of my people, the Kree, and punish those who do not. Because I do not forgive your people for taking the life of my father and his father and his father before him. A thousand years of war between us will not be forgotten!"

Are all Kree bad? Apparently not but it seems they aren't viewed well in the Galaxy so Captain Marvel might not be fighting for the right side? Who knows, but the movie looks incredible so I guess we'll see.

Oh and the "Something from my past is the key to all this" reminded me of George Lucas saying something similar about Jar-Jar Binks.

I'm pretty sure that's a hot take connection you won't see anywhere else so you're welcome for that and I imagine we'll see a Gungan crossover in the MCU soon enough.

This trailer did more to entice me than the last one. It gets a little more into the weeds with the plot hooks to other parts of the franchise and looks like it could fill a few gaps in our knowledge.
