The movie has preview screenings the night before opening wide on Friday, March 8.
Captain Marvel opens on Friday, March 8 (with early preview shows on Thursday, March 7) and tickets will be hard to come by. In its first 24 hours of sales, the film became one of Fandango's best preselling Marvel movies, alongside Avengers: Infinity War and Black Panther.
If you're a fan, the safe move is to reserve tickets now. There are lots of options, which we've highlighted below. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the ticket sales through the links featured on this page.
Marvel's first female-led full-length film, with its first female co-director, has a lot going for it: a butt-kicking Brie Larson as Air Force pilot Carol Danvers (also known as Captain Marvel), Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury and an alien race known as the Skrulls.

For fans, the stakes are high: if you miss Captain Marvel in theaters, don't expect to watch it at home on Netflix. On Feb. 6, Disney CEO Bob Iger noted it'll be the company's first film to skip Netflix and instead head to Disney's own Disney+ streaming service.
