Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) faces off with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) in "Captain Marvel."Walt Disney Co". We only have an idea of who survived The Snap but so many more are out there. But this is the origin story they went with and it does not include Bening teaching Larson how to fly a fighter plane. "There's things that only we know", Brie said - Watch the interview below!
"I will never forget tonight", she marveled. The Starforce are but just one part of the equation in the ongoing Kree-Skull War.
There are a couple of genuinely surprising twists in the Secret Wars-influenced plot that I wouldn't want to spoil. He's played by several real cats and an animatronic one, and he too is best when he's allowed to do simple cat things, rather than the requisite superhero-cat things. Vers is determined to take down the Skrulls that land on Earth, but there's somebody on Vers' trail, too: the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the USA government's super-secret spy agency - specifically veteran agent Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) and eager rookie Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg). I know that conversation centered around Black women, but why are we all expected to see "female" empowerment in white women and not in women of color? "So, I spoke to Dr. Stacy Smith at the USC Annenberg Inclusion Initiative, who put together a study to confirm that". We've also seen the de-aging special effects used before and they continue to be extraordinary.
Danvers gets captured on a mission against the shape-shifting villains, the Skrulls, and ends up escaping to Earth a la 1995. Not surprisingly, it serves as a way of tying this film into other MCU films. She immediately takes aim at Arnold Schwarzenegger on a True Lies poster in the first of many nods at "90s culture, including needle drops from TLC, Nirvana, No Doubt, and Hole that range in effectiveness". Once business gets taken care of, the duo head off to Louisiana where Davers gets a long overdue reunion with Air Force colleague Marie Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). The design of this place is very intricate. She is told at least 10 times in the first 10 minutes of the film that she needs to control her emotions, mostly by Law. Arriving on the odd planet raises even more questions, especially after meeting S.H.I.E.L.D. Pinar Toprak composed the score, while the cinematography is by Ben Davis. It goes something like this: Hero undergoes traumatic experience that gives them extraordinary abilities.
Johnny Oleksinki in the New York Post writes, "The character, even when kicking ass, is a total bore". And Larson, a perceptive, low-key actor, carries the whole affair capably; she smiles just the right amount, which is not a lot.
When Captain Marvel comes down to Earth, that's when she really soars. But, all of that seems to be behind us, as the last few stills from the film have given us enough evidence of the badass superhero.
The multifaceted nature of womanhood is what sets Carol apart from all the heroes that came before her and it's what makes her the strongest hero the MCU has ever seen. We get to the roots of Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S and learn the people involved. It's a formula that has been tried and tested since Iron Man blew up the scene in 2008, and has been overused by the studio to the point of fatigue. You know the kind, girls falling down and getting up again, withstanding jeers and taunts until you're weeping on your couch? Even the mid-credit Avengers Endgame scene is barely worth waiting for. Without spoiling them, I'll just say that both of them are very important. There are some especially specific and clever ones, including one involving late Marvel imprimatur Stan Lee, that absolutely kill. After having seen Captain Marvel, there's no one else I can imagine as Carol Danvers. It's not the "first" female-driven superhero movie of this increasingly sensitive era; Wonder Woman blasted through that glass ceiling, lifting the spirits of audience members from eight to eighty with a glimpse of female power that had previously been marginalized or relegated to supporting roles. With contracts expiring for numerous current Avengers, she very well may be the face of the MCU for the foreseeable future.
Larson's gold dress was a drastic change compared to her electric blue ensemble she wore to the London premiere of the film. "Luckily, Captain Marvel doesn't have to be better than all of the MCU's previous films to be something enjoyable".
