Brie Larson goes from test pilot to interstellar warrior in the latest Marvel epic, Captain Marvel.

By now everyone should have seen Avengers Infinity Wars (numerous times) and saw Nick Fury signal a pager before he was dusted by Thanos. Now Marvel is explaining what that Star symbol on the pager means……he called Captain Marvel!

Vers (Brie Larson) is a Cree warrior hero that has been assigned by her commander Yon-Rogg (Law) to a rescue mission to extract a spy before their mortal enemy, the Skrull, discover him. The Skrull are green skinned aliens that have the ability to shape shift into any person down to the person’s DNA. They only retain short term memories of the being the copy, so an older question can expose them. The mission turns out to be a Skrull trap and they capture Vers and begin examining her mind for clues to a power source that will provide the Skrull with a light speed engine.

Vers has no past but does get glimpses of a history that involves the Cree’s leader, the Supreme Intelligence (Annett Bening) and flying a plane on a strange planet. Vers also has a unique ability with photon blasts that come from her hands. The Skrull tap into her mind and discover that Ver’s dreams are actually bits of her real past on Earth! Her name is Carol Danvers, a test pilot working with Mar-Vell a Cree scientist working with the Tesseract as a power source for light speed engine.
