Set in 1995, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, as she turns into one of the galaxy's mightiest heroes and joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team, before returning home with new questions about her past and identity when the Earth is caught in the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.
This is the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It was announced back in October 2014 and then the pieces fell into place. Brie Larson was cast in the titular role in 2016, a reveal that took place during Marvel's Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic-Con. Principal photography started in March 2018 and ran until July of that year. The character of Captain Marvel was teased during the Avengers: Infinity War post-credits scene, hinting at her importance in the franchise moving forward.
Carol Danvers made her first appearance in comics in March 1968.
