If you weren’t aware that “Captain Marvel” is set in the 1990s, the appearance of a Blockbuster Video in the first few seconds of the official trailer should be a big clue.
In the new trailer, we see Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel (Brie Larson) crash to Earth and land in the middle of the video store. Then, Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) begins a voiceover. “I know a renegade soldier when I see one. Never occurred to me that one might come from above,” he says.
