Air Force Pilot Carol Danvers Goes Higher, Further, Faster in Super Bowl Spot

Mar 15, 2019
by James Barber
Try to keep up here. Just in case you didn't get the point before: "Captain Marvel" is another movie about a Marvel superhero who happens to be a veteran of the U.S. military.

Carol Danvers is an Air Force pilot who might not be entirely human.

Marvel spent big on Super Bowl spots for "Avengers: Endgame" (in theaters April 26) and "Captain Marvel" (currently in theaters). The Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson movie is set in 1995, so it probably won't shed any light on the fate of everyone who got vaporized in "Avengers: Infinity War."

The latest spot plays like an Air Force recruiting commercial, if the USAF was looking to enlist intergalactic heroes.
