We’re heading back to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the latest M-Net Movies Night Out. The next MCU movie, Captain Marvel, lands tomorrow (8 March) but we’re getting a sneak preview tonight. Whether you’re joining us or watching this weekend, here are a few things you need to know (in case you don’t already) before the adventures of Carol Danvers start.

  1. It’s the 21st movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  2. Captain Marvel is played by Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson.
  3. Joining her are Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn , Jude Law, Annette Bening, and Djimon Hounsou.  
  4. It’s set in the 1990s.
  5. Since it’s set in the past, it means we’ll get to see Clark Gregg’s Agent Coulson back in action.
  6. Behind the camera, you’ll find directing duo Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck who also directed Half Nelson and Sugar together.
  7. It’s the MCU’s first female-led superhero movie. But we’re still waiting in anticipation for the Black Widow solo outing.
