I will do my best not to spoil anything about the plot for those that haven’t seen it, but Captain Marvel was dope and you should see it in 3D in the theatre. Seeing it in 3D makes a big difference because of the space and fighter jet scenes.
As always, Marvel did not spoil anything about the plot with interviews or the trailers. If you listen to the theories that the “specialists” or fake leak videos on YouTube, you will figure out that they really aren’t being fed information. They do it for views. The majority of the trailers came from the first 15 minutes of the film and really only show the characters in sequences that don’t allow you to know what’s happened.
Captain Marvel delivers a great story about the latest addition to The Avengers, and it does a lot of other things that I will focus on for this post. First, it does a great job of mixing in ideas of the first female solo superhero film in the MCU. If that is a problem for you, you suck. It’s not a women’s liberation film, but it addresses the issue by treating the character like a “normal” person and Brie Larson did a great job. If you still have a bad taste in your mouth over the “things” she said about “white men” and don’t know the context, you should know that she was talking about Wrinkle in Time and that the comments were taken completely out of context.
Captain Marvel connects to other Marvel movies in really interesting ways. The end is also at least two separate beginnings. Now I know the last sentence may piss you off because it’s vague. But go watch the movie and you’ll know what I mean. It sets up Avengers Endgame perfectly and it also answers some open questions for the MCU. It’s a multi-level origin story and you will want to see it before you see Avengers Endgame to understand the overall timeline of the Avengers.
I saw it at 7pm on Thursday, March 7 in 3D at a theatre with leather recliner seats. I left a meeting with about 15 minutes to get to the theatre and had to rush in an Uber. When the film finished, I went outside and tried to buy Avengers End Game tickets immediately, but I realized they are not available yet. So Marvel, just take my money!!!!
