What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Captain Marvel is the first female-led superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Evangeline Lilly's Wasp shared billing with Ant-Man). Set before the Iron Man trilogy and the Avengers series, it tells the story of how Air Force pilot Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) becomes Captain Marvel, one of the most powerful superheroes ever. After a freak accident gives Danvers alien superpowers, she teams up with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to save Earth from a war between two alien races. Like most Marvel movies, it's safe to expect sci-fi action, violence, and some strong language. Tweens and teens who've seen other Marvel movies will likely be excited for this highly anticipated superhero film, too.
