Sure, some people tuned into "Monday Night Football" to watch the Washington Redskins take on the Philadelphia Eagles, but if you're more into comic books, female superheroes and Brie Larson blasting things, the debut of a new "Captain Marvel" trailer is a bigger deal.

Check out the new footage that fills in a bit more story-wise, especially in regards to the cosmic war between the Kree, noble space heroes with whom Captain Marvel's connected, and the shapeshifting supervillainous Skrulls.

The 1990s-set Marvel flick (in theaters March 8), directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, stars Larson as fighter pilot/space warrior Carol Danvers as well as Samuel L. Jackson as "Avengers" regular Nick Fury (who digs Carol's cat).

Brie Larson stars as the super-powerful Carol Danvers in "Captain Marvel."
