What’s the big deal with this Captain Marvel film?
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ “Captain Marvel” follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the action.
