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. Carol Danvers is caught right in the middle. This former Air Force pilot, played by Oscar-winner Brie Larson (Room), ended 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. 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. And 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.

Never miss a fan event so my nephew can continue to grow his collection of coins, toys, comics, posters, and badges :-)
Solid, but uneventful. Origin story, so it's to be expected, even with the changes. Cat steals the show.
The film doesn’t give Ms. Larson enough good stuff to fulfill her role’s potential. Her Captain Marvel is an appealing character who becomes an impressive one, wrapped in a shimmering aura of blue and white energy. What’s missing, though, is what helped make “Wonder Woman” an exemplary figure of female empowerment two years ago: unforced warmth, along with strength, and flashes of delight.
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.
