Captain Marvel | Marvel’s First Female Lead

Yes people, its official, fandom has received a gift from the MCU which goes by the name of Captain Marvel. The MCU’s first female-led film is a big hit.

From the beginning the film created too much hype to be contained once the film was shown for the first time to a limited group in Europe before the film was official released. The phrase that was repeated the most on twitter by these elite few was “Believe The Hype” as controversies of “white dudes” were momentarily forgotten.

Film critic Hannah Ines Flint wrote: “Just saw Captain Marvel and it is just so ridiculously good.”

“Captain Marvel is so good. … An excellent protagonist, important messages of overcoming, female empowerment, and refugees. … Soundtrack is awesome. Post credits scene gave us chills!”Dimensao Geek (Geek Dimension)translated by Captain Marvel News

The film was also given credit for staying true to the character as portrayed in her comics. Long time fans will recognise her type of humour, her power, all of her identity (as much as can fit in 2 hours and 12 minutes). The film portrays Carol Danvers not merely as one of many 2D superheroes we see on movie screens but also as human with a genuine and moving story befitting Marvel’s first female led film released on international women’s day.

Marvel stretched the limits of its creativity and created a movie like none of the other MCU films. Some viewers liked the film to a 90s era science fiction which was moulded with the marvel movie essentials. Marvel has once again raised the bar of superhero movies.

The focus on the individual characters was highly appreciated by the fans and gave the actors a great opportunity to shine. Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Clark Gregg and Ben Mendelsohn all impressed audiences. However, they all could not compete with the star power of Goose the Cat.

The film, which is set in the 90s, also holds a number of interesting hints and answers to several marvel plot lines in the MCU, apart from a touching tribute to Stan Lee and two end credit scene. So keep your eyes peeled.

Nonetheless, film goers remarked a long build up as the film explains Captain Marvel’s back story and Kree culture. Albeit a highly ambitious film it also seemed wobbly and even confusing at times to the casual marvel watcher at times.

It’s a reverse superhero origin story. It’s not as much as how she becomes a hero but what makes her a hero. One thing is for sure, it sets up Avengers: Endgame beautifully. Carol Danvers is a great addition to the MCU which Thanos is going to be sorry for.
