Fighter pilot Carol Danvers is involved in an accident which fuses her DNA with that of a powerful alien species, resulting in her becoming Captain Marvel, a mighty hero. After crashing back down to Earth with little idea of where she came from, she must piece her memories together and protect the planet from getting caught in the middle of a galactic war. With the help of a familiar face in Special Agent Nick Fury, Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure, set in the 1990s, and the first MCU film with a female lead.
