Before Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and the Hulk formed the Avengers, another hero was called upon to save planet Earth from destruction from inter-galactic forces…
Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is an extraordinary woman. A legendary Air Force pilot well trained to deal with high-pressure scenarios, Danvers already has an important role. But she doesn’t realise how essential she is about to become to the people of Earth.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel sees Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) discovering for the first time that super-humans walk among us, and just in time, too. An inter-galactic war has broken out, and Earth is caught in the middle. All of the usual protections won’t be enough to save the planet from destruction, and it will take a truly incredible force to keep the world safe.
Brie Larson, who previously starred in Kong: Skull Island and won Best Actress at the 88th Academy Awards for 2015’s Room, takes the leading role of Carol Danvers, Marvel’s most powerful superhero. Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained, The Avengers) is set to return as fan-favourite Nick Fury, while Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes) joins the MCU as Walter Lawson, aka Mar-Vell.
