Brie Larson punches a bunch of Skrulls in the new Captain Marvel trailer

It’s been almost three months since we got the first full-length trailer for Captain Marvel, the Brie Larson-starring superhero film that made us all very happy thanks to the included shot of the title character punching an old woman in the face. But now, there’s a brand-new trailer to start poring over.

This new trailer actually opens right on that poor old woman, who—as you’ve probably guessed if you know anything about Marvel comics—is actually a Skrull. The shapeshifting bastards are the bad guys in Captain Marvel, and if the big moments of this trailer are anything to go by, Captain Marvel is going to seriously wreck their shit. We’d heard that Larson’s character was going to be pretty powerful (and she better be if she’s going to help kick Thanos’ butt in Avengers 4), but damn.
