SALT LAKE CITY — “Captain Marvel” dropped Thursday night for millions across the country.

And, as Doctor Strange said in “Avengers: Infinity War” — we’re in the endgame now.

“Captain Marvel” tells the story of Carol Danvers (Brie Larson), who comes to Earth in hopes of figuring out her past. She teams up with Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to avoid the Skull and Kree, both of whom are searching for her to harness her powers. And that’s your basic synopsis of the film.

We saw “Captain Marvel” ahead of its release and put together a slew of content based on what you’ll see. Here’s everything you need to know.
