Captain Marvel Makes HUGE Changes to Mar-Vell's Character

Then, in that "looking up in the sky at night" shot I mentioned above, Nebula and Tony Stark manage to make it back to Earth. The spiritually inclined had already had their outing with Dr. Strange, the same way dadless Dudebros had theirs with Guardians of the Galaxy, or idealistic patriots had theirs with Captain America, or unsure young'uns had theirs with Spider-Man, or Chris Hemsworth fans had theirs with Thor, etc. It isn't easy to create core characters who develop a natural rapport that is both amusing and uplifting, especially when one of them has been in this series since it began in 2008, but "Captain Marvel" pulls it off. Oh-and excuse me, Akira Akbar-there is indeed "girl power" in this film. That's Avengers: Endgame, of course, which is by far the most anticipated movie of the year. So maybe that was it. As a light speed, fire-fisted superhero, it's clear that Captain Marvel could easily smash the likes of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk into tiny pieces.

In case you haven't noticed, Brie Larson is killing it lately.

"It's 2019. And everybody here looks for the day when it is not newsworthy that a woman is directing this kind of movie", she said at press conference in Singapore. As we now know, that was a mighty naive assumption to make. She's a total badass from start to finish. There, she searches for a missing scientist named Lawson (Annette Bening), whose light-speed engine might help the Kree win their never-ending war against the Skrulls.

"That's just a depiction of the female experience", Larson said. "I feel like a lot of people will be able to relate to that, particularly women". Humor winds up being provided by Samuel Jackson's Nick Fury, heart by Lashana Lynch's Maria Rambeau, and pathos by...well, I don't want to spoil anything. Larson glares a lot, as she should.

That's all the stranger given Law's Voice of the Patriarchy speech to her as they spar. Anger serves the enemy. I don't typically watch superhero movies, but you bet your sweet ass I'll be seeing Captain Marvel. "These are super strong characters that are smart and conscientious and care about friendships and, you know, use their brains". As Vers learns more about her backstory (to delve into details here would involve major spoilers, although fans of the comic likely won't be too surprised), we discover that she faced systemic sexism throughout her life as she worked hard to realize her potential as a gifted athlete, fighter pilot and all-around warrior. The Kree soldier was originally ordered to infiltrate and monitor Earth's advancement in missile and space technology by Colonel Yon-Rogg after the Fantastic Four defeated both a Kree Sentry and Ronan the Accuser. They are led by a green-skinned Ben Mendelsohn, in prosthetics that must have taken hours to apply, but still look like a rubbery mask. Also because of the jump back in time, there will be good-time oldies from Garbage and No Doubt on the soundtrack. Regardless, they've got the pager and they've been running it nonstop-but they have no idea what it does, so they're playing it relatively safe and keeping the whole thing under wraps. What is interesting is that Captain Marvel is basically a living Tesseract Space Infinity Stone, so things appear to be going full circle, though retconned, for The Avengers: Endgame.

In two hours the film weaves its story of personal intrigue with some bruising if sometimes confusing action sequences, and the odd cathartic fist pump of righteous triumph.
