Captain Marvel opened in cinemas in spring 2019 and was a box-office smash in the UK, generating revenues of £37m. This put it at number seven on the list of highest grossing movies in the UK that year.

What is Captain Marvel about?

While Captain Marvel was one of the three films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) to be released in 2019, it is actually set in the mid-1990s. This puts it almost at the beginning of the chronological timeline of the comic book-based movies, pre-dated only by Captain America: The First Avenger, which was set in World War II.

Without giving too much of the plot away, the film casts Brie Larson as superhero Carol Danvers, AKA Captain Marvel. The storyline follows her crash-landing on Earth, where she encounters the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., begins to discover more about her own past and of course, fights some bad guys.

Is the film any good?

Captain Marvel scored a respectable 78% on Rotten Tomatoes. Overall, critics seemed to enjoy the film and the performances of the lead actors, which as well as Larson include Samuel L. Jackson, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn and Jude Law.

But some viewers felt that while it was very entertaining, the movie fell slightly short of other MCU films in terms of providing a political message or a crucial “origins” story.

But if you’re a Marvel fan and a Hollywood blockbuster is what you’re looking for, then this title likely fits the bill.

Where can I watch Captain Marvel online?

Disney now owns Marvel Studios and decided to keep Captain Marvel as a viewing exclusive for its new Disney+ streaming channel.

This means that Captain Marvel is not available on Netflix or Amazon Prime streaming services, although you can buy it as a standalone movie to watch on Amazon Prime. You can also watch the film on NOW if you have purchased its Sky Cinema Pass.

Disney+ launched in the USA and Australia at the end of 2019. The good news for UK film fans is that the channel went live in this country on 24 March 2020, so you can now watch Captain Marvel online in the UK too.

As well as Captain Marvel and all of the Avengers films, Disney+ features loads of other TV shows and movies, including the Frozen and Star Wars franchises. You will need a monthly or annual subscription to stream any of the content though. You can buy one here.

Can’t I just watch Captain Marvel illegally for free?

You shouldn’t! Here are a few things to remember:

  • It’s poor quality. Unauthorised streaming often takes ages to buffer, will keep cutting out and is bad picture quality.
  • It risks your computer. All of those pop-ups aren’t doing your laptop much good.
  • It’s illegal. Film studios work hard to bring great entertainment to fans. Pay your bit, sit back and enjoy.
