After its inception in 2008, the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be getting its first female-led movie with ‘Captain Marvel’. And Brie Larson’s iteration of Carol Danvers is already a hit among fans and they can’t wait to see her take on Thanos. However, one particular moment from the trailer has stuck with them a bit too much.
Yes, that’s right. MCU fans absolutely loved seeing Captain Marvel sucker punch an old lady. Now, in Carol’s defence, that’s probably not just any old woman. That might be a Skrull, shape-shifting aliens, that our superhero has located and is trying to teach it a lesson. But who cares about those details when it’s a perfect moment for some hilarious memes?
Here are some of the best Captain-Marvel-punching-an-old-lady memes:

15. Oh! Plot twist!
What if the old lady that Captain Marvel punch wasn’t a Skrull.
— Cap☆ The First Avenger (@CaptainGalxy) September 18, 2018
Just so we are clear, Skrulls are imaginary creatures who exist only in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Captain Marvel is handling them. So, do go around the town punching people to check if they’re shape-shifting aliens or not.
