Captain Marvel is a Marvel super-blockbuster about the most super-powerful hero in the galaxy. On this occasion, the Earth is caught in the middle of a cosmic conflict between Skrulls and Kree, two alien races at war.

The action is set in 1995, taking place before the events depicted in all the Avengers films (before they even existed as a group). Oscar-winning Room actress Brie Larson stars the film as Vers/Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel. Samuel L. Jackson, who was digitally de-aged, plays the future director of S.H.I.E.L.D., two-eyed Nick Fury. Jude Law is Danvers' mentor, Yon-Rogg.

Captain Marvel was filmed in and around Los Angeles, California and also a few scenes were set in Louisiana. Here are the spoiler-free filming locations of this long-awaited movie:
