Brie Larson reigns supreme as one of the universe’s most powerful heroes in Marvel Studios’ first female-led movie.
Marvel Studios’ first female-led superhero film is one of the year’s most anticipated blockbusters. Ex-US Air Force fighter pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) has gained incredible powers as a result of an accident. She joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team, before returning home with questions about her past and her identity when Earth is caught up in a battle between two alien worlds. Expect an intrepid superhero, a gripping story, plenty of humour and eye-popping action sequences.

Captain Marvel doesn’t just feel timely for women, but with themes of refugees, border control, and the military, it offers more than one political thread. It may also be easy for the majority to dismiss the film as a cash-in on feminism – with anything starring a woman being heralded as a ‘#metoo movie’ – but it’s hard to care when you remember the target audience. All that the children watching will see is a woman who earned her power through her brave actions, not through the men who seek to control her, one who can protect others and seek justice where there is none. Captain Marvel doesn’t feel as fresh as hype suggested, and perhaps isn’t quite as sure of itself as Black Panther, but it lays exciting groundwork for what will be a fantastic addition to Endgame and the MCU.
