Must Watch // Captain Marvel (2019)
Captain Marvel is an extraterrestrial Kree warrior who finds herself caught in the middle of an intergalactic battle between her people and the Skrulls. Living on Earth in 1995, she keeps having recurring memories of another life as U.S. Air Force pilot Carol Danvers. With help from Nick Fury, Captain Marvel tries to uncover the secrets of her past while harnessing her special superpowers to end the war with the evil Skrulls.
While Carol Danvers’ story continues in The Marvels this November, let’s not forget that Secret Invasion is also a suedo-sequel to 2019’s Captain Marvel. You’ll once again meet Talos and his Skrull refugees, including his daughter G’iah, as this film catapults you into a world of Fury’s relationships and newfound alliances with these extraterrestrial beings.
