It was OK. We only saw glimpses. Nothing to be overly critical about. We can't expect trailers to knock our socks off every time. The first trailer is usually for casual fans to wet their appetite thus not showing too much. The second trailer is more for the wider audience, new and old alike. That's when they'll show the attention grabber parts I'm sure.
I actually prefer this approach. Or u could do what WB has done and show a lot of wow moments already in Aquaman and by trailer 2, you'd think you may have already seen too much.
I do agree that it was somewhat underwhelming. I think a big part of that is because the best parts of the trailer were already spoiled earlier by stills and announcements--the appearance of the Skrulls, Fury and Coulson and Ronan and Korath reappearing...all of that would've been mind-blowing if I saw it for the first time during the trailer. For the most part, the trailer was just a rehash of stuff we already knew about the movie. The only notable exception I can think of would be Carol's Starforce helmet with the mohawk, but I've always hated that costume design anyway, so meh....
All that said though, I am pleasantly surprised that Marvel (seems) to be taking a more reserved and "serious" tone with this character. I was a little worried they would go the jokes-galore route of Ragnarok or Guardians to make a cosmic adventure more palatable to the general audience, but it seems like Marvel made a smart call to play it straight with Carol. I've always preferred the more emotionally-grounded MCU films compared to the more comedic ones (people tend to forget that the Iron Man trilogy really isn't as jokey as some make it out to be), so I'm hopeful for this.
But yeah, debut trailer could've been better.
@yassassin: I suspect I'll fall asleep.
It'll make money cause it's a marvel movie and it'll get good critical reviews because it's a marvel movie that features for the first time, a female lead (by the way, I'm NOT hating cause of this - just stating what will happen).
Honestly, I hope it surprises me and is actually really good. But, as of right now, it's the first superhero movie I'm not excited for.
