Brie Larson Makes a Fine Captain Marvel-But What Does It Accomplish?

It's likely he would have filmed one for Avengers: Endgame as it was shot back-to-back with Infinity War way before his death and he appeared in that Avengers movie. Captain Marvel, played by Brie Larson, didn't have an easy time either with the constant questioning and internet trolls, who even faked a few reviews before the film.

Marvel fans are finally going to be introduced to the new member of the MCU family.

Like its tough, smart heroine, "Captain Marvel" dances to its own beat; it's an origin story that isn't structured as an origin story but gets there all the same. [.] As soon as she meets Jackson's Fury - the character's just beginning his career as a government agent, and is called upon to investigate her unexpected arrival - things click into place; the two actors have an easy, amusing chemistry, and the film nicely balances saving-the-day-swooping-around with charming character bits. While the MCU has shown women working together (Nakia, Shuri, and Okoye in Black Panther), as well as part of a hot/cold sibling rivalry (Gamora and Nebula), Maria and Carol's relationship is truly the first time we've seen women in a close life-defining friendship. But the movie's true heroine's journey is about Vers' struggle to reclaim her own identity and embrace her inner badassness, despite aggressive gaslighting from the powers-that-be; a message that - while occasionally delivered with a heavy hand - is certain to resonate with more than half of the population. The filmmakers have fun with all their mid-'90s references from computers to musical cues (if you like angry '90s girl pop anthems you're in luck), but I wish someone would have been paying that much attention to the continuity of Larson's curls, which change even in the middle of scenes.

That hero is Carol Danvers, known by multiple names throughout the film.

Look no further than Kelly Sue DeConnick's run on Captain Marvel when it comes to the film's inspiration. By comparison, Captain Marvel's bravado feels earned, a result of a woman who's had to work twice as hard for everything she's ever received and never backed down from a challenge. Do you think this bodes well for Disney's Captain Marvel? Though the hype oversold it and it's not the best Marvel movie, it's still a fun movie well worth seeing on the big screen and an exciting addition to the Marvel Universe. This is a fairly obvious nod to the Air Force pilot Goose from the 1986 movie Top Gun.

What you need to know is that there are two scenes during the credits.

This is a film that has to set up the rest of the MCU.

One of the most enthusiastic receptions came from Los Angeles Times' veteran reviewer Kenneth Turan.

The Captain Marvel marketing has been incredibly odd because it conceals one of the film's strongest aspects, which is Captain Marvel's personality. But the big surprise to me was just how amusing he is. There are several lulls, especially in the first act. Unless you know the story from the comics, it can be a bit confusing until the pieces start to connect about mid-way through the film.

'Now being able to bring it into the world, and let go of it, first of all means we get to stop working on it and take a big long nap, [but] also have other people see [which] is great'. "Happy picture wrap day!" he wrote under a photo of himself wearing a Captain Marvel hat on Instagram, July 8.
