They're great for normal, everyday world disaster. The next one will be in cinemas in a matter of weeks'. As they try to figure out how to reboot it, a mysterious figure arrives: Captain Marvel herself.
Warning: Minor spoilers for Captain Marvel below. I don't typically watch superhero movies, but you bet your sweet ass I'll be seeing Captain Marvel. Also, she's very confident in her powers when it comes to facing Thanos.
The key word, however, is "practically". Not only are powerful forces in the galaxy hell-bent on her destruction, but the men in her life are quick to belittle her when she dares to do what they can do, and better. "It made me feel warm, knowing that women were being represented in this light, but at the same time it spoke to personal experiences that I've had". But one of the things we wanted to do in this movie is, you know, don't judge a book by its cover and tap into people's preconceived notions of the pointy-eared green aliens being evil and subverting that.
The film's long, drippy prologue is set on Hala, the home planet of the Kree civilization, a "race of noble warrior heroes".
Culture - Film review: Captain Marvel
It is 1995. She crash-lands on top of a Blockbuster Video store, abiding by that law of the movies which decrees that crash-landings from outer space always have to happen in Californian shopping malls. Come to think of it, in this age of supreme idiocy, aren't we all? Rocket inquires as to who hasn't been to space before, to which Rogers, Natasha and Rhodey raise their hands. "Unfortunately, we have seen an uptick in non-constructive input, sometimes bordering on trolling, which we believe is a disservice to our general readership". That's because the clip we're about to dissect isn't a trailer, but a scene from Endgame that might not be shown again until the movie is released.
In the meantime, he and Vers team up to deal with the Skrulls, which is tricky, because the slippery so-and-sos can metamorphose at any time into anyone or anything.
Released on International Women's Day, this superhero adventure is probably the first Marvel movie with a "nevertheless, she persisted" montage. Carol rediscovers her best friend, Maria (Lashana Lynch), a single mother who is also a first-rate pilot. Brie Larson is awfully miscast in the lead role. Indeed, the film generally makes a cheese-heavy meal of female friendship. After the movie was over, I realized there was no romantic subplot shoehorned into the story, and I was glad. There's an overdose of special effects, which somehow leeches a climactic battle scene of suspense. We went into Captain Marvel wondering why Nick Fury didn't call her for help during the Battle of NY, but the movie never gave us a decent answer.
"Captain Marvel", extremely aware of its duty to check all the boxes about feminine equality in all circumstances, clumsily jams in various feminist tropes whenever possible.
