This is a spoiler alert, my thoughts on Captain Marvel. I’ve heard varying opinions regarding this entry in the Marvel Universe.
Some were thrilled, some were meh, some were disappointed. As you know, I am a comic book fan, I have been since I was a kid. I remember getting my first one at the age of 4, it was Superman, I went on to the Fantastic 4, Wonder Woman, Batman, X-Men and beyond.
Through comic books I’ve traveled to Wakanda, Themyscira, Gotham, Smallville and Metropolis. I’ve flown the skies with Superman, written news stories with Lois Lane, I say all of this to let you know I am not a flyby fan. See what I did there?
I liked this movie, I liked how they portrayed Carol Danvers, I liked this origin story.
Once again, we have an actress that looks like she is having fun playing a hero. Much like Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel is fun to watch.
I can’t wait to watch her in Endgame, as you know I’m not a huge fan of the whole girl power anthem. I’m all about people power, I believe this movie had all of the power equally dispersed.
Yes, Carol Danvers has a lot of power and she does save the day, she doesn’t do it alone. She even has a cat helping her, sorry, not a cat, a Flerken.
That actually answered a lot of questions within my own household. Fat Catstard is not a mere cat, he is a Flerken. He has to be, he’s not an average cat.
I am endorsing this movie, it is a fine entry in the Marvel family. And if you can watch the opening credits without getting misty, well, you are a stronger person than I.
