The newest Marvel movie, CAPTAIN MARVEL, is a lot of fun.
As an old (very very old) Marvel fanboy, I am a little saddened that they dropped the original Captain Marvel (not counting Fawcett’s Big Red Cheese), the Kree warrior Mar-Vell, from the continuity. THE DEATH OF CAPTAIN MARVEL was one of Marvel’s classics, way back when. Maybe that’s just me, though. I am kind of a purist when it comes to adaptations.
Considered just on its own terms, the movie is hugely entertaining. I look forward to seeing how the Marvel teams uses the captain in the forthcoming Avengers movie. Once she comes fully into her powers, she is far and away the most powerful character in the MCU. She could eat Iron Man for lunch and have Thor for dessert, with a side of Dr. Strange. Thanos is in trouble now.
Be sure to stay to the very very end of the credits. The film has TWO Easter Eggs at the end, not just one. In the theatre where I saw the movie, most of the audience left after the first of those, and missed the second.
