Captain Marvel is the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe after the unforgettable events that occurred in Avengers: Infinity War. Since Infinity War left things in a way that made the audience curious about what would happen next, it was interesting to see what they come up with. All things considered, the next movie had to be something notable and memorable to leave the audience wanting more. Being that Captain Marvel was their first solo female superhero movie, I wanted to see what they could do with this material, and see if this would satisfying my appetite until Endgame came out. DC did a good job in creating an entertaining movie with Wonder Woman, which handled similar material of women who are able to be fighters in their own world and struggling to find their place and humanity in ours. While it’s admirable that Marvel finally put a female superhero at the forefront in one of their movies, this is still a “by the numbers” origin story that you’ve seen time and time again. Still, it’s watchable and it will be pleasing for those just wanting a movie that just cuts to the chase to provide a mostly standalone Sci-Fi action adventure movie. Marvel competently made a movie that seemed to hit the mark for a lot of people and that’s cool. It will be most agreeable for those who are either the most casual Marvel fans or the diehards who always rewatch all the movies leading up to their latest chapter.

There is a destructive force coming to the MCU, Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it has to power to destroy everything in its path. No, I’m not talking about Thanos, but the star of this film, Brie Larson. For those of you who don’t know, Larson hasn’t been the easiest person to deal with during the filming and promotion of this film. As the lead in a MCU film, she is using it as a platform to deal with women’s rights and other injustices she wants to talk about. Her foot has already been in her mouth a few times, including her saying that the new super hero film wasn’t made for white men, who are the majority of the critic reviewing population. On top of that, she apparently isn’t meshing well with the other Avengers, which could cause a problem. See, most of these original heroes will start to fade out, with the new ones, like Captain Marvel, stepping up to take the lead for the coming years. It doesn’t look good when your main star has created such controversy before the movie was released. Outside of the controversy, the main reason people want to see this is to get information about the person who will fix what Thanos did at the end of Infinity War. At the end of that film, Nick Fury was seen contacting her, before disintegrating into nothing, along with half of the world’s population. So, how is this origin story that tells us about the savior to this epic saga?
