Synopsis: It’s 1995, and there’s a war in space. The shape-shifting Skrulls battle their mortal enemies, the proud and forceful Kree. Human-Kree hybrid Carol Danvers is caught right in the middle. The former Air Force pilot, played by Oscar-winner Brie Larson (Room), ends up as one of the most powerful warriors fighting alongside the Kree. When she comes to Earth in pursuit of a Skrull force, Carol begins to question who she is. Where did she come from? Why does she keep having memories of a past life? And how did an Earth woman end up in space?
As Captain Marvel, Carol is one of the most powerful heroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Captain Marvel tells her story, and explains how Carol met Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) long before he ran S.H.I.E.L.D. The flashback story sets up Captain Marvel to make a heroic entrance in Avengers: Endgame, in which she may be the essential element that allows the Avengers to defeat Thanos.
