Oh boy.

Comics lore again sacrificed at the film altar. Carol is now half Kree.

It's easier to understand than "DNA re-written by Psyche-Magnatron" or whatever it was.

I'm pretty impressed they got this off the ground. DC has a very recognisable Wonder Woman, but Marvel has never had that equivalent. Obviously Carol is the chosen one, especially since Storm is over at Fox for now (or caught up in the Fox sale mess)

I feel like I now know too much about the story.  They even explained the beating up an old woman bit from the last trailer.

Well, now we're drifting into Marvel territory that I know very little about.  That is just a personal observation....definitely not a complaint. 

This might be like Guardians....one of those movies that ends up doing really well because of the Marvel brand.  WB/DC has the exact same branding..except with them, it causes people to immediately LOSE interest.

Well, I'm pretty sure the part about Kree being noble warrior heroes is a red herring.

Oh yeah.  And Jude Law will turn out evil and the Skrulls will be misunderstood.

So Jude Law has been confirmed as Mar-Vell, but his ultimate role as hero or villain or something in between has yet to be determined.

My girl's are stoked for this after seeing the second trailer.

Marvel is doing it right, the kids love Capt Marvel and Spider-Gwen (Ghost Spider)

I'm looking forward to it -- but not at the same level as I was looking forward to Aquaman, and especially Wonder Woman.
