Set in the 1990’s, the story follows a Kree warrior named Vers (Brie Larson), who’s past has been hidden from her for years, believing her trainer Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) that she needs to rein in her powers to become a better soldier. It isn’t until the mission she is on goes haywire that the Skrull unlocks her memories and she flees to C-53 or better known as Earth. While she is figuring out how to stop the Skrull from invading Earth, she is accompanied by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D, who helps her discover who she really is. As she begins to uncover elements of her past, she learns she was born a human, under the name Carol Danvers, who was a U.S. Air Force soldier at a top secret military research facility. During her time as a U.S. Air Force pilot, she was unknowingly helping an alien Kree, under the alias Dr. Wendy Lawson (Annette Bening). In a fatal accident, Danvers absorbed the energy from the Tesseract to keep it out of the hands of the Kree. Remembering this, the tables are now turned, and Danvers allies herself with the Skrull, realizing that the Kree have been attacking them for years. She learns to embrace the powers she has been told to suppress, and ultimately becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes, under the name Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel redefines what a hero can be, what a hero can become and accomplish, even though she is struggling to find her own identity. At every turn, the film focuses on what came before and what will come after, piecing multiple Marvel cinematic movies together that makes it difficult to follow. But don’t worry, this isn’t the last of Captain Marvel that we’ll see. She is expected to make an appearance in Avengers: Endgame that comes to theaters on April 26, 2019.
