Some are born to greatness, some are destined to it
The promo video's caption encompasses the message perfectly, "Some are built. Some are made. Some are born. On March 8, witness the rise of a hero". The clip shows the genesis of various superheroes including Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. It then goes on to show Brie Larson's Captain Marvel as she steps into the role of the most powerful Avenger, yet.
Stark's suit, Roger's body, Thor's hammer, promo clip shows all
The clip shows Stark building his first Iron Man suit in the caves of Afghanistan, then moves on to a shot of Steve Rogers before he undergoes the experiment with the super-soldier serum which makes him into Captain America. Having shown the heroes who are made, the clip then shows Thor, a born hero, as he regains Mjolnir, having been deemed worthy of it.
'Discover what makes a hero', urges the promotional video
Towards the end of the clip, we see the genesis of Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel, from her time as a fighter pilot to her training as an elite Kree warrior. However, it is only when Danvers is in full battle attire as Captain Marvel, fighting in outer space, that we get a sense of a new and powerful hero's arrival in the MCU.
While fans loved the promo, first screening gained positive reviews
Fans loved the promo with some saying, "Probably my favourite TV spot for Captain Marvel". Not just the promo, but the first screening of the film was met with positive reviews too. Brandon Davis of Comicbook.com saying, "Fans of #CaptainMarvel comics are going to love the movie. Plain and simple". Angie Han of Mashable simply tweeted, "#CaptainMarvel: Well, Thanos is f**ked".
