Marvel Studios’ first female-led franchise film Captain Marvel – the barrier-blasting, intergalactic origin story that goes higher, further, faster – will be available on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray and 4K Ultra HD on 15th July.
Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel is an all-new spectacular superhero adventure from a previously unseen period in the Marvel Cinematic Universe history of that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character – Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel (Brie Larson – Room, Kong: Skull Island).
When we first meet Danvers, she already possesses her superhero powers, having left her earthly life behind and become a member of an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg (Jude Law – Sherlock Holmes, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald). But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past.
While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson – Avengers: Age of Ultron, The Hateful Eight), and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos (Ben Mendelsohn – Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Mississippi Grind), who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.
Based on the beloved Marvel comic-book series, first published in 1967, also stars Annette Bening (“American Beauty,” “20th Century Women”) as Supreme Intelligence, with Clark Gregg (“Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) as Agent Coulson.
