At the time of its release, "Captain Marvel" was the first movie in the MCU centered on a female superhero. Captain Marvel (Brie Larson), also called Vers, is an elite, rebellious warrior from the planet Hala who sets out on a mission to end the Kree-Skrull War. In the process, she uncovers her origin story on Earth.
Viewers nostalgic for the '90s will appreciate the film's homage to the decade via grunge-inspired wardrobe, tones of irreverence, and outspoken feminism. Not all viewers were open-minded about a female lead and an actress promoting feminism in the MCU and Hollywood more broadly. Internet trolls were quick to lambaste Larson and the film with misogynistic comments. Despite the negativity, "Captain Marvel" grossed $1.2 billion worldwide.
