The social media embargo on Captain Marvel has been lifted and members of the press have shared their first impressions of the upcoming Marvel film. Academy Award-winning actress Brie Larson plays the titular superhero, the alter ego of US Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, in the first female-led Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film. Set in the 1990s, Captain Marvel will follow the story of Larson's character as she navigates a monumental war between two alien races which transcends galaxies.

The film has received mostly positive reviews, with some calling the film "radical" and Larson's character a "welcome addition to MCU."
