But is this a celebration of women or a bit of a cynical ploy?
There's something deeply satisfying about Natasha being the first Avenger to see Carol.
"Captain Marvel" is heading for a dazzling opening weekend of at least $150 million in North America, early estimates showed Friday.
It's a great marketing strategy, but the line between celebration and cynical cash-in is a fine one. When the MCU makes a very good movie, as they've done here, it is because it's either epic and spectacular, like "The Avengers", "Captain America: The Winter Soldier", "Captain America: Civil War" and "Black Panther"; or anchored by charismatic main characters who are likable, amusing and inspiring, like the "Iron Man" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" series and "Thor: Ragnarok".
Like pretty much everything in comics, it's complicated. He then asks if it's true that the Kree burned Fury's eye out, a rumor Fury neither confirms nor denies, signaling that he's learned to stay cautious of everyone around him after his life-changing adventures with Captain Marvel, the Kree, and the Skrulls. The Marvel Universe seems to remain well and alive, and one can sense that a Phase Two is ultimately imminent.
So far, with only a few weeks before the premiere date of Avengers: Endgame, there's no sign of our snapped heroes or whose MCU fate will come to an end this film, with only a few weeks before the premiere date. Before taking on the title Captain Marvel, Carol used several different aliases, including Binary, Warbird, and her original moniker, Ms. Marvel (currently being used by Kamala Khan).
Captain Marvel will also set new IMAX theatre records around the world by opening on 1,360 of the big screens.
The end of the shareholders footage featured a bunch of Avengers in a spaceship: Rocket Raccoon, Thor, Nebula, a suited-up Captain America, War Machine, and Black Widow. It is nearly as if the studios are embarrassed of the fact and are trying to retrofit their past so that by the time the series reach the present day, the cinematic universes will have plenty of female superheroes fighting alongside their male counterparts.
She also gets advice from the Supreme Intelligence, an artificial intelligence (AI) that has collected the great minds in Kree history. It is an action movie shaped by the Marvel cookie cutter, with perfectly adequate but unsurprising special effects. Larson's performance has been praised, as have the humour and energy of the film.

I suppose we'll have to wait until Avengers: Endgame hits theatres on April 26, 2019 to know the answer for sure.
So, how did Carol make her way to the present day?
Brie Larson may be a famous Marvel superhero now, but the Oscar victor didn't have an easy journey to Hollywood stardom.
I mean, I wasn't bored like this during the superheroine movie Wonder Woman.
Dressed for work in a hi-tech bodysuit and sporting hair with bounce - she might look like a typical, nearly banal Marvel heroine without much of an inner life (Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow comes to mind), but it's immediately clear she has much more to offer.
In the final battle sequence of Captain Marvel, when the titular hero and the Kree are fighting against one another and Maria and Fury are trying to escape the Kree, Goose opens his mouth and extends several octopus-like arms out to grab the Tesseract and swallow it whole.
