It was two weeks ago that fans were treated to their first official look at Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel in all her cosmic glory. However, those photos pale in comparison to the brand new trailer that Marvel Studios dropped this morning during Good Morning America.

Follow along with us as we break down the first official Captain Marvel trailer: 

1An Undoubtedly ‘90s Setting

Feature Detail

In case there was any doubt that Captain Marvel takes place in the 1990s, the trailer kicks off with Carol crashing through the roof of a Blockbuster Video. In fact, it’s worth noting that the nearly defunct rental chain dropped the word “Video” from its name in 1994, meaning the film must take place during the early part of the decade.

2Carol Danvers, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.?

Feature Detail

After she crash-lands on Earth, we get a shot of Carol sporting a leather jacket and an old school S.H.I.E.L.D. cap. Of course, while we know she’ll be working with S.H.I.E.L.D., she won’t be a full-fledged agent.
