Brie Larson is front and center in the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe installment, Captain Marvel, but she’s got some key supporting characters by her side throughout the movie.

The movie opens up with Captain Marvel already in outer space with superpowers, fighting on the side of the Kree in the Kree-Skrull war. She doesn’t remember her human past but at this particular point in time, it doesn’t matter because she loves being a Kree.
