They have a great approach, really prepared to use what fits the best when transferring from page to screen. Generally it works out and I’m sure this one does.
I think what’s not connecting right now is the struggle. It looks like she comes to Earth, gets flashbacks, realises she’s human and then stands up to the Kree. The closest we get to that being a difficult journey is Jude Law telling her she’s not as strong as she thinks she is.
That’s going to be core to the story and Carol’s growth and change as a person, because it’s going to be something she will eventually realises is a lie and she’ll turn around and tell him (in PG-rated language) to go fuck himself, and the rest of the Kree war machine with him.
The trailers are giving us the bread crumbs to follow that story, and while I don’t need the whole loaf in a trailer, I could use a few good slices.
