The plot of Captain Marvel

For months, the Kree warrior Vers (Brie Larson) has been plagued by dreams that she shows on the battlefield with an unknown woman. But her training has to continue and so she continues to work hard on her skills together with her teacher and commander Yon-Rogg (Jude Law). When the Kree Empire is threatened by an invasion of the Skrull, Vers is dispatched with her master, Minn-Erva (Gemma Chan), Korath (Djimon Hounsou) and a few others to rescue a Kree spy.

There Vers meets the young S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), who carefully receives the strange warrior. Only when Fury realizes that his organization has been infiltrated by the invasive Skrull does he take Vers’s side. However, it doesn't take long before Vers realizes that her dreams correspond to reality and that she is much more human than she thought - not to mention the superhuman abilities that are still dormant deep in her ...

Captain Marvel - Detailed review

A film that had to serve as a sacrificial lamb long before it was released in theaters. Sure, the decision to establish by far the most powerful figure in the entire Marvel universe just before the end of the extensively woven MCU in the form of "Avengers: Endgame" may be debatable. After all, Captain Marvel's entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe could theoretically have happened much earlier and thus avoid various setbacks - all for the thrill.

Technically, "Captain Marvel" is a feast for the eyes. Whether it's Samuel L. Jackson, rejuvenated by de-aging, whose almost youthful agent Fury never seems artificial or out of place, or the action-packed closing sequence in which Carol Danvers alias Vers alias Captain Marvel uses her abilities to the full The use of the body by the navy of Ronan (Lee Pace) burns: THAT is Marvel cinema in its purest form.

Many fans had just felt that a woman of all people would now take on the most powerful role in the entire MCU - you can see for yourself, right?
