Captain Marvel is the latest 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 performs Danvers' mentor, Yon-Rogg.

Captain Marvel was filmed in and around Los Angeles, California and Louisiana. We will soon expand and improve this spoiler-free report with more details about the filming locations of this long-awaited movie:
