Brie Larson stars in Marvel’s first female-led superhero film, CAPTAIN MARVEL. We first find her character, Carol Danvers, in outer space, fighting alongside Kree warriors against the Skrulls. When her aircraft crashes during a mission, Carol gets captured by the enemy and ends up on earth, where she meets a young Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Together, they must stop the Skrulls’ dangerous plot and uncover Carol’s true identity and past.

One word can turn a streetwise 14-year-old orphan into an adult superhero. After encountering a powerful wizard, Billy Batson (Asher Angel) gains magical powers through his alter-ego, Shazam (Zachary Levi). Shazam is one of DC’s more comedic characters — balancing incredible abilities with teenage naivety — but he also has serious enemies, including the villainous Dr. Sivana (Mark Strong).
