There's so much to love in Captain Marvel, especially Captain Marvel

Review ‘Captain Marvel’ is a four-star spectacle as Brie Larson’s hero conquers villains onscreen and online

Despite the galactic scope of the film, which transports you to different planets and several spacecraft, Captain Marvel feels oddly constrained - a lower-budget Green Lantern.

Marvel Studios are well known for their love of after-credits scenes as a way of interconnecting their shared universe. According to Deadline, industry estimates are projecting a $100 million opening weekend debut for Captain Marvel. She's got the blue blood of a Kree, but the original red blood that flowed through her leads to a past on Earth she can't remember.

Ultimately, Captain Marvel seems like neither a critical hit nor a critical flop, despite how desperately the trolls are already trying to spin the consensus. The last third of the film devolves into a series of battles between Captain Marvel and her enemies, but also apparently between the film's editor and cinematographer (visually, these scenes are nearly incoherent), and between the directors and the studio.

Boden said: "I don't want to say anything I'm not supposed to say, but just that it was. we did want to kind of have a moment and tribute to Stan Lee in this movie, obviously".

In addition to starring in the Marvel film "Captain Marvel", which premieres this Friday, Larson has also signed on to star in and executive produce a drama series that has scored a straight-to-series commitment at Apple.

Long gone are the days when a movie star making the leap to TV could be seen as a demotion-shoutout to the McConaissance-but you'd be forgiven for wondering why Larson is headed to Apple, of all destinations.

In the film, she plays an Air Force pilot who becomes imbued with incredible powers after an explosion and the workouts allowed her to have the strength to perform stunts and fight scenes as her character.

Would Captain Marvel have been made - or considered a box office threat - without the irrefutable success of Wonder Woman?

As for Iron Man, let me ask you this: can Captain Marvel fly without a suit? Yah.

Also, there's that cat named Goose, who is one of the coolest cats in movie history.

Boden and Fleck were odd picks to direct "Captain Marvel", considering that most of their previous work has been for very non-cosmic TV series such as "Billions", "The Affair", and "In Treatment".

What you'll find is considerable amount of humour, a depiction of actual female friendship and mentorship (the emotional heart of the movie), Ben Mendelsohn's entertaining yet layered Skrull commander, serious 90s nostalgia value (with an incredible period soundtrack to boot) and a delightful bond between Samuel L. Jackson's de-aged Nick Fury and Goose the cat.

The film is an origin story for the MCU's newest and most powerful hero. "I had no idea my body could do those things, so it was an empowering journey." . Carol Danvers (played by Brie Larson) is so confusing and weird, audiences aren't just going to "get the gist".

What you do establish pretty quickly is how effortlessly brilliant Brie Larson is as Carol Danvers. It's a real treat to see Carol Danvers find her footing and her wings, so to speak, while at the same time Nick Fury is taking the first steps toward becoming NICK FURY. Carol's friendships with Fury and Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch) are equally important but unique. Incredibly, it's also the first Marvel superhero film to be directed by a woman.

Part of that is because the movie takes place in the gently mocked 1990s (with references to Blockbuster Video, the AltaVista search engine, flannel, and more), and sometimes evokes the no-frills look and tone of midrange flicks from that decade and earlier. Annette Bening does double duty as research scientist Dr. Wendy Lawson and the avatar that embodies Carol's most admired person whenever she's jacked into the Kree's Supreme Intelligence matrix.
