About Captain Marvel
Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, with Carol Danvers already possessing her superhero powers. Leaving her earthly life behind, she joins an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member¬, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.
Meet Captain Marvel Movie Characters:
CAROL DANVERS/CAPTAIN MARVEL(Brie Larson): A former officer and Air Force test pilot, Carol Danvers becomes the universe’s most powerful hero when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races, the Kree and the Skrulls.

YON-ROGG (Jude Law): Yon-Rogg, the Starforce Commander, is a highly regarded warrior in the Kree army, which is in a perpetual war with the Skrulls. An imposing leader and Carol Danvers’ mentor, the commander of the elite army unit is a hero among the Kree people.
NICK FURY (Samuel L. Jackson): In the years following the Cold War, Nick Fury wrestles with his sense of purpose within S.H.I.E.L.D. When Fury crosses paths with Carol Danvers, they become Earth’s only hope of stopping a Skrull invasion.

Cameos and End Credit Scenes
By now you know that any Marvel movie includes a cameo from Stan Lee and at least one end credit scenes, I can confirm that Captain Marvel has not only one but two end credit scenes, so be sure to stay until the very end. As far as cameos go, Captain Marvel doesn’t disappoint, be sure to be in your seats as early as possible because there is something that plays at the beginning of the film that you won’t want to miss.
