Friday’s openings: This superhero is a true Marvel

Fresh off its first Oscar, which went to the animated film "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse," Marvel Entertainment is looking to corner the movie market on Friday with the release of a single film:

"Captain Marvel": Oscar-winning actress Brie Larson plays the title character, Carol Danvers, who stands up to protect Earth from two warring alien civilizations. Look also for, of course, Samuel L. Jackson.

Larson won her Oscar for 2015's "Room," a film in which she played a superhero of a completely different sort. And if you're at a lost as to who her Captain Marvel character is supposed to be, then read this story from cnet.com.

I'll update when the area theaters finalize their listings.
