Not quite as good as I hoped, but still a solid addition to the MCU. 7.5/10

Less action, and comedy, than your typical Marvel movie. Even though the movie comes in under 2 hours, the first hour feels a little slow due to a couple pacing issues.

Also probably less CGI than your normal MCU movie (despite the last half of the movie having a lot). The first hour uses a lot of on-location sets.

To that end, the movie itself had a different look to it from other Marvel movies. As far as the color palate they use and camera choices. Likely to make it feel/look more like a 90's movie than a present day movie just set in the 90's. I wonder if they shot parts of the film with older style cameras. I didn't love it in part because I didn't expect it, but that's a me problem.

I actually liked it a little more because it wasn't what I expected, but I gave it an 8/10 so we were close.

This film is creating a lot of strong reactions from the Conservative types due to Bri Larson's strong feminist stands like only doing interviews with female journalists and requiring equity in behind the camera jobs or else she will not do anymore films. Also Captain Marvel will now be the leader of the good guys in the MCU and many think it will head into an over the top Politically Correct path like Star Wars EP VII-IV.

It was pretty good. Not my favorite but not least favorite in marvel.

Only complaint is when she ran it looked like she never ran in her life before. Even though she has all these powers I felt like my grandma could out run her. I guess if you can shoot proton blasts out of your hands why need to run? Lol. Ok, she just looked real awkward.

The only types that ultimately matter here are the producer types.

In a film like this, where the real stars are the CGI folks, if some relative noob is already trying to call shots, I'm turning her into the Pete Best of the Marvel franchise. Don't give a crap about her politics - she sounds like a PIA that's easily replaced.

The trailers didn't wow me but I'll still see it because it will still be entertaining and I've already seen the previous 20 so what's another one.

I have a sneaky suspicion Avengers: Endgame is going to be the end of the line for Capt. America and the Avengers will be looking for a new leader, so you might be dead on.

Now called "Shazam" for legal reasons.


Late 30's Fawcet created a knock-off of DC's Superman called "Captain Marvel." DC won the law suit. Fawcet could no longer create Captain Marvel comics.


Early 60's, Marvel Comics created a "Captain Marvel" and was able to trademark the name. I don't know why.


Later DC license the original Captain Marvel from Fawcet, brought back Captain Marvel comics. Marvel won that lawsuit so DC changed the name to "Shazam" but all real people know Shazam is the real Captain Marvel and Marvel's is an alien hoochy.

The mantle or Marvel, or Mar-Vell, has been worn by several different characters over the years.

The most recent incarnation has indeed been Carol Danvers though.
