In Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel fans will flashback to a period of danger hither-to unexplored in the Marvel Cinematic Universe — the 1990s. The movie follows the journey of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. When a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
A new TV spot for Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel focuses more on the journey of young Carol Danvers to figher pilot and eventually a powerful Kree warrior and super hero. Watch it here:

“It’s very surreal to get suited up, as gloves are getting put on and things are getting zipped up behind me. And the idea of that star and these colors, it represents strong will. It makes me emotional,” Larson said. “She is the most dynamic character that I have ever had the chance to play.”
