Based on the beloved Marvel comic-book series, Captain Marvel is the first female-led franchise in the ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe! Yesterday I had the opportunity to screen the film before it releases in theaters. I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about the film, but it absolutely exceeded my expectations. This is absolutely a movie you’ll want to see in theaters, and here’s why…Captain Marvel Review below.
I was invited as media to attend this screening. All opinions are my own.
Captain Marvel Review
A former officer and Air Force test pilot, Carol Danvers becomes the universe’s most powerful hero when Earth is caught in the middle of a galactic war between two alien races, the Kree and the Skrulls. Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” leaves her earthly life behind and joins an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce. With her memory erased, she takes on a new identity as Vers. After training under Yon-Rogg, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past.
The film stars Academy Award® winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Ben Mendelsohn as Talos, with Annette Bening as Supreme Intelligence, with Clark Gregg as Agent Coulson and Jude Law as Yon-Rogg.
From the intense fight scenes to the sprinkle of humor throughout – Captain Marvel is hands down one of the best Marvel films to date! It also has a killer soundtrack and nostalgic nods throughout the film, like when video stores and pagers were in style. You might even get a Top Gun vibe during the flying scenes.
Captain Marvel precedes Avengers and is the missing piece to the puzzle. So many questions get answered in this film! All Marvel fans will absolutely love this movie. Captain Marvel is full of tenacity and one serious badass. Truly, she’s one force not to be messed with! But she’s also human, so she’s relatable and brings a sensitivity to the story. I think I can safely say, Captain Marvel is my favorite female superhero!
I hope you enjoyed this no spoiler Captain Marvel Review! See it in theaters March 8th.
