We’ve seen 20 films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, this is the 21st. There is a lot of information, characters, places and events to put together in order to make sense of it all. We know the Avengers, now we are being introduced to Captain Marvel, AKA Carol Danvers portrayed by Brie Larson.
If you are wondering, no I am not going to spoil the film, just some thoughts I am having after having just watched the film at the El Capitan fan event. These events are always fun, come with popcorn, drink and a special collectors pin or coin, sometimes comic. Tonight it was a coin. It was pretty cool.
There is a lot about Captain Marvel that people can relate to on many different levels. You may see yourself in one situation and your friend in a another. What I felt when watching the film was that no matter what I’m faced with, I just need to get up and keep fighting.
It is possible to become a “hero” even when that’s not your plan. You don’t need superpowers to do that either, however if you read the comics and/or see the movie you will see, Captain Marvel does acquire a “power” so to speak. The film not only brings us along her journey, it might make you think of your own. Where have you been and how strong were you? Did you do the right thing?
I think once Infinity Wars End Game comes out we will appreciate Carol more. We lost a lot of strong favorites in the last film. It is my hope that she can help. I can tell you this, she does have skills that can be helpful to the Avengers. Much like Dr. Strange, and his mentor, she spent time learning from Jude Law who played Yon-Rogg. What she does with her knowledge is up to her.
I will write a much more detailed review of the film after more have seen in, I’d say if your a fan you will see it within the week. Till then I don’t want to spoil it at all for any one who may come across this article.
