Captain Marvel is currently doing the rounds at exclusive fan screenings and press events and whilst there have been no official posts from those involved in the media, several outlets have leaked the entire plot of the movie.
The leak was initially posted on 4chan and though some said it was fake, it actually matches exactly with the plot of the novelisation that is being released alongside the movie. Bleeding Cool recently matched the stories and whilst I’m not a fan of dealing purely in speculation, I think this seems pretty accurate.
Throughout this, I’ll be breaking down everything that you need to know about the plot leak as well as how it leads into the great MCU. I’ve edited certain parts so they read better so this isn’t completely verbatim.
There will, of course, be nothing but spoilers here so if you don’t want to know anything then I highly suggest that you turn off now.
With that out the way, I’m Deffinition and welcome to the channel where I ruin it so you don’t have to.
Captain Marvel Full Plot Leak
Carol Danvers is a pilot that during an excursion is ambushed by a Skrull spaceship. During which she is caught in the explosion of a stolen Kree device that gives her superpowers.
Starforce commander Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) rescues her and takes her to the Kree homeworld Hala, where she is brainwashed into believing she is a Kree warrior and recruited into Starforce.
During a mission, Starforce is ambushed by the Skrulls and all but Carol are killed. Carol is captured by the Skrulls, but she blows up their ship and escapes. She, a flerken (Goose), and four remaining Skrulls crash on Earth. Talos and his group infiltrate SHIELD and plan to use Earth’s resources and attempt to capture her.
At this point, Carol meets Fury and Coulson after he mistakenly thought she was about to steal from him. That’s when Carol detects a Skrull spy with him. She kills this Skrull and then goes on the run. Fury returns to SHIELD with the body of the dead Skrull, he has a bad feeling about his other colleagues so he decides to meet Carol and lead her to a secret SHIELD base where info about her is stored. Carol remembers her life on Earth and reunites with her best friend Maria Rambeau and her daughter Monica. The three learn the Tesseract is being kept on a secret space station, and go on to retrieve it, kidnapping a skrull who followed them and his ship.
The Cosmic Cube
The group manages to retrieve the cube but get ambushed by Talos and his soldiers. Carol sends Fury and Monica back to Earth, before Ronan arrives. He explains that the Kree and the Skrull empire have separately made a deal with a tyrant (Thanos) to give him the cube and other gems in exchange for help in their war, and argues that whoever has the cube will turn the direction of the conflict, revealing also that the skull spaceship that ambushed here years earlier was actually a Kree one.
Carol breaks free and attacks both sides, until Yon Rogg appears. Carol finds out Yon-Rogg is actually a Super Skrull. The real heroic Yon-Rogg was lured into a trap on Earth and assassinated so a Skrull spy could take his place. Carol was testing a Tesseract-powered spacecraft and stumbled upon the ambush. The Kree device merged her DNA to the Tesseract, which is why she’s so powerful. Skrull-Rogg then decided to shape her into a perfect soldier so the Skrulls could later brainwash her and use her as a weapon.
Angry, Carol dukes it out with Skrull!Rogg, but being a Super Skrull, he can easily copy her abilities. She remembers why she become an Air Force member and vaporizes Rogg. She leaves Fury in charge of protecting the Tesseract and Earth before forcing the Kree and the Skrulls into a peace treaty.
Ronan refuses to accept this and goes rogue. Carol gives Fury a pager in case of emergencies and leaves to become a one-woman defense against intergalactic war.
Other Captain Marvel Easter Eggs
The Starforce suit can change colors. It starts out green and black, and when Carol regains her memories of being an American soldier, she switches it to red and blue.
Fury apparently doesn’t lose his eye.
Coulson gets injured during the train chase and doesn’t appear again until the end of the movie.
Annette Bening is Carol’s dead mother. The Kree Supreme Intelligence uses her appearance to communicate with Carol.
Korath is the only survivor of the Skrull ambush on Starforce, but gets badly injured, requiring the cybernetic implants he has in Guardians of the Galaxy.
And that concludes everything we know about the movie’s main plot. Obviously I’d love to hear your thoughts on it and if you’re still going to see it. I’ve got my tickets for Friday and will be breaking down everything that you need to know about the movie in my soon to come Ending Explained Video.
I’ve also created a seperate video about the post credits scenes and what happens in them which will be linked after this one.
