Captain Marvel Is Certified Fresh

Captain Marvel box office

For the film's world premiere in London last week, Larson wore a custom blue and gold Valentino gown and then wore a custom Rodarte star-studded dress at the film's Los Angeles premiere, both giving a nod to Captain Marvel's uniform.

The Mid-Credits Scene: Directly mirroring the final shot of the Avengers: Infinity War tag, this one starts with a close-up of Fury's pager - the one we saw him send a distress signal on right before he was dusted. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) replies.

At the end of Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers tricked out a two-way pager for Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) so that he could message her across galaxies.

Captain Marvel takes it for granted that women can be tough and take charge. (Oof.) I guess emotion is here signified by the release of cool force bolts from her hands, as opposed to, you know, words, expressions, or anything ordinary like that. At this point, we all know that the Tesseract, aka the Space Stone, was a bit busy between being recovered by Howard Stark at the bottom of the ocean and being poked and prodded by Erik Selvig for SHIELD.

As the remaining Avengers are discussing the pager, Captain Marvel appears and questions Natasha about Nick Fury's whereabouts.

To be fair, Captain Marvel opens up a new can of worms because she's so insanely powerful, and I predict that they're probably going to keep her in the cosmic realm because as her movie shows, nothing on Earth is much of a threat to her.

Wisely, directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (who co-directed 2015's Sundance darling Mississippi Grind) hastily whisk Carol to Earth (circa 1995) where she can find more entertaining people to hang out with. Regardless of the chic bellhop vibes, I'm satisfied that the actress really can pull off anything.

"Captain Marvel" has a number of other strengths as well, and there were numerous details in the film that left me feeling utterly charmed. If you are using an Academy Award-winning actor, why not let her act? The Marvel Universe seems to remain well and alive, and one can sense that a Phase Two is ultimately imminent.

Except Captain Marvel ends with no indication that Carol actually could travel through time. "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".

As Fury delivers baby-talk to Goose, the cat takes a swipe at his face, leaving several scratch marks across Fury's eyebrow and eyelid.

A Forbidden Planet listing has revealed the cover of an official Marvel Studios Movie Special magazine that'll be released to tie-in with Avengers: Endgame. The other signature staple from the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Stan Lee's cameo.

The second post-credit scene plays on a joke from earlier in the movie. Unbeknownst to Maria and Fury, Goose, the fuzzy orange cat Fury often cuddled with and cooed at throughout the duration of Captain Marvel, is in tow as well.

Of course, Fury goes on to lie about how he got the injury, coming up with some elaborate tale involving the Tesseract and the Kree, which sounds far more exciting than a little scuffle with a moggy. Nonetheless, as the post-credits ofAvengers: "Infinity War strongly indicated, Carol Danvers" solo debut also holds some noteworthy connections to the upcoming Avengers: Endgame, and since we'll be discussing those connections here, those hoping to go into Captain Marvel spoiler-free best stop reading now.
