Carol Danvers is trained to save the world with the abilities she has. She is one of the Starforce members, but she suffers from amnesia and recurring nightmares involving an older woman.
During a mission, Vers (her Kree name) ends up on Earth. She is kidnapped by Talos, the leader of the Skrulls.
While she escapes from the Skrulls, she recovers a crystal with her memories. The Skrulls can shape shift and this lead to a few difficult moments.
S.H.I.E.L.D agents Nick Fury and Phil Coulson are attracted by Vers and eventually, Fury ends up working together with Vers.
They go to the Project Pegasus installation. They find out who Vers really is. A human pilot who was presumed to have died in 1989 while testing an experimental jet engine.
After Fury informs S.H.I.E.L.D, he finds out that the Skrulls took over. He helps Vers escape in a cargo jet. Lawson’s stowaway cat Goose found a way on the plane also.
They go to Louisiana to meet the former pilot Maria Rambeau. The last person to see Vers and Lawson alive.
Maria and her daughter reveal that Vers is actually Carol Danvers, a good friend to them. Talos shows up unarmed and explains the whole story. He also helps Danvers remember the crash.
Talos, Danvers, Fury, and Rambeau locate the secret laboratory orbiting Earth. Danvers is captured by Starforce and Danvers is forced to discover her full powers.
After they save the Skrulls, Danver decides her name: Captain Marvel and plans on using it for the better. She leaves with the Skrulls to find a new homeworld for them.
She also leaves a modified pager with Fury, so that he can contact her in an emergency. Fury draft a plan to locate heroes like Danvers and names it after her Air Force call sign ‘Avenger’.
I only new the title when I went to Captain Marvel. I had no idea when it happens on the Marvel timeline.
It was just a great and awesome movie. Definitely Marvel quality. I really loved that we know the story of the Avengers now.
This movie explained a lot of things. The scars from Fury, the beginning of the Avengers etc.
And the cat, the cat was just amazing. I already love cats, but this was just amazing. The whole cinema was feeling it and started laughing about the cat.
I feel like it is important to see Captain Marvel before Avengers: Endgame. It explains the story a bit and then you get why she is appearing in the movie.
