Movie Info & Cast
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.

Did You Know?
- Carol Danvers has donned many superhero outfits over her history and this film features a few of them.
- The name "SHIELD" is used throughout the film. But this is a film set in 1995. That name/acronym wasn't created until 2008, in the first Iron Man film's epilogue, when Coulson coins the abbreviation, as the organization was originally referred to by its full unabbreviated name (the Agent Carter one-shot makes this error as well).
- Nick Fury: I know a renegade soldier when I see one. Never occurred to me that one might come from above.

Leaving out the drama of how a few men are still bothered... I truly enjoyed this movie. I think many people are upset that the strongest avenger currently is a woman. This is coming from a 26 year old man lol
Movie led up to the hype, post credit got me ready for endgame
Captain Marvel sometimes resembles the kind of low-budget sci-fi that might have played on kids’ TV on a Saturday afternoon in the era when this movie is set.
Brie Larson gives Carol the right mixture of sweetness, humour and swagger, underlining the film’s message of self-empowerment with a light touch.
Captain Marvel itself has none of that rebellious spirit. It takes very few risks in the way that something like Thor: Ragnarok did, beyond the fact that it is the studio’s first blockbuster with a female hero in the lead. Personally, I like my movies about rule breakers to actually break some rules.
