Captain Marvel premiered in movie theatres on February 27, 2019. The film starred a plethora of A-list actors who helped bring the story to life for audiences. Notable Cast Members include Brie Larson as Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos and Keller, and many others.

The film is an epic superhero story that grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide. Because of its success, fans were eager to know when the story would continue. The follow-up story to Captain Marvel was announced soon after. The Marvels features many of the same characters and actors as Captain Marvel, so fans of the first were excited to see the new film in theatres.
