The 90s period piece will provide origin stories for Carol Danvers, Nick Fury, and a variety of cosmic characters, before Carol crosses over in Endgame to assist in the battle against Thanos. This story is inspired by the 1971 comic book storyline the Kree-Skrull War.

Since getting closer to release people have gotten on RottenTomatoes.com to make fake reviews and make the movie look bad so people won’t watch it. It is also the lowest reviewed Marvel movie ever as of now, before the release.

This movie was teased in the post-credit scene in Avengers: Infinity War and will be a direct tie in with Avengers: Endgame. Most people will likely skip this movie because of how much of a bad rep it has from all the fake reviews it is getting.

Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, as she turns into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes and joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team. But according to reviews this will be the the first Marvel movie to be mostly in space even more than Guardians of the Galaxy.

Some early release screenings have happened and their have been some things spoiled from the movie and according to some people they are major spoilers that ruin the movie. Some major cameos that are in the movie are online and this has upset many fans.

Captain Marvel is projected to make $100 million at the box office for the opening weekend. People are considering this movie to be flop because there isn’t a lot of attention. This is what Black Panther was estimated to make its opening weekend and it exceeded expectations. So let’s see, will it live up to the fake reviews or will it exceed expectations?
