The origin story of Marvel’s newest Avenger has become one of my favorites. Marvel does a fantastic job of weaving in story elements from other films, suffice for even the most avid Marvel fan. Captain Marvel is available on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD and Movies Anywhere right now, and debuts on Blu-ray and Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD June 11.
The latest chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe introduces audiences to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), an Air Force pilot who endures a freak accident resulting in the new acquisition of alien superpowers. AKA Captain Marvel, she joins forces with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) as they work to save the planet from an emerging war between the alien races.
Captain Marvel is set in the ’90s, a period in the history of the MCU that audiences have not seen. As a woman and a mom, I appreciate the introduction of the first stand-alone female character. We first meet Danvers after she has acquired her powers, having left behind her earthly life to become a member of the intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce. Led by commander Yon-Rogg, Danvers trains and works with the team, rising to become a valued member. When she finds herself back on Earth, she meets and teams up with Nick Fury as they work to stop the forces of Talos and his band of Skrulls, who’s danger lies in their shape-shifting abilities, as they invade Earth.
