Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe's most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.

Here’s how to win tickets to see ‘Captain Marvel’ before everyone else

"Her powers are off the charts, and when she's introduced, she will be by far the strongest character we've ever had,” Marvel’s Kevin Feige told Vulture.

And you can be one of the first to see her in action.

"Captain Marvel," starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson, introduces a new superhero to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It takes place during the '90s and will likely explain why Captain Marvel has not been seen in previous MCU movies.

Her arrival was teased at the end of “Avengers: Infinity War,” as Nick Fury (played by Jackson) summoned her to Earth while half the world’s population was turning to dust. 

Advance tickets went on sale in January, and the movie has already outpaced “Wonder Woman” presale numbers. “Captain Marvel” is now behind only “Black Panther”  for advance ticket sales of a superhero origin story. The movie officially opens March 8.
