Why Captain Marvel Punches an Old Lady – Explained

The first Captain Marvel is out which is booming the Internet. In the very first Captain Marvel Trailer, Captain Marvel punches an old lady, probably for no reason. But no superhero punches a sweet old lady in her face for no reason. Carol Danvers punches the old lady in her face because she is a Skrull in the human form. It is because Skrulls are a shapeshifting alien race.

Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson, is set in the 1990s time. During this, Carol is working with a Kree military team named Starforce. The Kree race is the blue-coloured alien race. Yes, it also includes the GOTG Ronan the Accuser – Kree religious fanatic, played by Lee Pace. He will be returning too in Captain Marvel. One of the famous storyline in the comics from which Captain Marvel will inherit some elements is the Kree-Skrulls War in which Earth is caught in between.

From this trailer, the sequence can be made by joining the pieces of the events. The possibility is that during the Kree-Skrulls War, Captain Marvel fell to Earth. After that, she is seen at the subway station trying to find someone, possibly be a Skrull. Then we also saw the train roof fight which can mean that she is chasing some Skrull. Then the scene of old lady can be taken as the way of the Skrull to lose its tail by shapeshifting into a human. But Carol isn’t so easily deterred, hence she punches the old lady in her face.

The old lady can be a random Skrull or can be the main villain Talos in the form a human, played by Ben Mendelsohn. It is confirmed that Talos arrives Earth and goes undercover as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, disguised as a human. This raises the possibility of Captain Marvel being assigned the hunt for Talos, during which she will start regaining the memory and questions about her loyalties, where they should lie?

In the comics, it is difficult to realize the difference in an original human and a Skrull Imposter. Both forms look exactly the same. So, this will be interesting to see how Captain Marvel got to know that the old lady is a Skrull, just by looking at her. This skill could prove to be useful if Marvel inherits Secret Invasion somewhere in MCU Phase 4. It will reveal that the Skrulls have been infiltrating the Earth for years.

Of course, there’s a slight chance that Captain Marvel is wrong about the old lady being a Skrull. In that case, she’s going to have to make quite a big apology.
