WATCH: New Marvel star Lashana Lynch talks about 'Captain Marvel' film

There’s a new superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and she’s a strong-willed woman, played by Brie Larson.

Captain Marvel follows the story of Carol Danvers, who the audience meets as a Kree warrior known as Vers (pronounced Veers). The Kree, led by the Starforce Commander (played by Jude Law), are in a galactic battle with shape-shifting aliens called Skrulls.

While in battle and subsequently on the run from the Skrulls, Larson’s character finds herself on Earth, or Planet C-53, in the year 1995. It’s during this time in the film that we are introduced to Samuel L. Jackson’s legendary character Nick Fury. We also meet Maria Rambeau, played by British actress Lashana Lynch, a former test fighter pilot and one of Danvers’ closest allies in the film.

Yahoo Canada spoke to Lynch about what it was like to step into the shoes of Rambeau for this film.

Captain Marvel is now in theatres across Canada.
