Even though the Marvel Cinematic Universe has 22 films, it wasn’t until this year that one focused on a female superhero. Brie Larson plays “Vers”, later known as Captain Marvel, a Kree warrior who finds herself discovering a life she never knew she had on earth in the mid 90’s. While there, she teams up with Samuel L. Jackson’s “Agent Fury” to try and stop an intergalactic war between the Kree and the Skrulls. Even though the plot of the movie is driven by a war in outer-space, there is still a large part of the movie that focuses on Lawson finding herself and her past, making it feel quite human. Overall, the movie was entertaining and is a must-see before watching Avengers: Endgame.
