2. And look, they gave her good superpowers.
3. And while this might be the first time you’ve heard of Captain Marvel at all, you should know that this character is considered by many to be the definitive female hero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
4. It’s something you’d know if you read up on lots of Marvel comics, because she does pop up in all kinds of storylines!
5. The title of “Captain” is actually a pretty recent development.
6. This is the first Marvel movie with a woman as the protagonist.
7. You’ll definitely see Captain Marvel’s origin story, of course…
8. And you should also know that the movie is set in the ’90s, long before the events of Iron Man or when the Avengers were formed.
9. Luckily for all of us ’90s bbs, it is full of ’90s references!
10. The movie also includes the origin story of many other familiar faces…
11. The film’s storyline also involves the Kree, a blue-skinned alien race we saw earlier in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

13. But the actual villains of Captain Marvel are the Skrull people.
14. In fact, they are the main villains of one of the most iconic Marvel stories: Secret Invasion.
15. And in fact, there’s been a lot of online speculation that Marvel has been planning to make a film inspired by Secret Invasion for years.
