With Avengers: End Game coming to theaters next month, there are still a lot of questions that need to be answered before it hits the big screen. Who or what can save the world after Thano’s infamous snap? Did Fury’s message get to it’s destination in time?
Time is limited, and it seems that Marvel is taking a step back and bringing out one (or two) characters that may actually be able to defeat Thanos, or be major in End Game. Captain Marvel hits theaters later this week and it takes viewers back to the 1990’s in an origin story of its namesake character. From nods to the time frame like grunge music and iconic things like pay phones and Blockbusters – it will make fans feel nostalgic for our teenage years.
Since the movie is an origin story, at times the film seems a little rushed. But they have to not only explain the backstory of Captain Marvel, as she learns it herself. Viewers will also learn more about key characters that we already know and love as well.
Tossed into the middle of the Kree and Skrull war, Vers, a Kree warrior is still learning to control the powers they gave her and trying to recover who she was before the Kree found her years before. The story focuses heavily on her past, how it made her who she is now and will come into play as she figures out who she is later.
The movie is filled with amazing graphics, great music, and battles that at times may remind you a bit of Star Wars style dog fights. It is one a great addition to the MCU and gives you just enough clues to be excited about Avengers: End Game. From space to flight, the movie honestly takes you to heights you didn’t expect in the MCU.
Be sure to stay through all of the credits to catch both after credit scenes. And be on a lookout for the Stan Lee Cameo in the film that has a nod to other films he’s worked on as well.

About Captain Marvel:
Marvel Studios presents “Captain Marvel,” an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character—Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel.
Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, with Carol Danvers already possessing her superhero powers. Leaving her earthly life behind, she joins an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member¬, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.
Based on the beloved Marvel comic-book series, first published in 1967, “Captain Marvel” stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson (“Room,” “Kong: Skull Island”) as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson (Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “The Hateful Eight”) as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” “Mississippi Grind”) as Talos, with Annette Bening (“American Beauty,” “20th Century Women”) as Supreme Intelligence, with Clark Gregg (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) as Agent Coulson and Jude Law (“Sherlock Holmes,” “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald”) as Yon-Rogg.
