Brie Larson Is Literally a Shining Star at 'Captain Marvel' Premiere

Marvel is throwing it back to 1995 with the March release of Captain Marvel so we thought we’d do the same. Get ready for the MCU’s first female-led flick by reading the latest issue of EW (designed with our old fonts and logo to get in the

Eventually, the haters will be drowned out by the fans who, I'm convinced, will embrace "Captain Marvel" as a fast-paced, sometimes amusing, always smart action movie with a heart of gold.

"'Captain Marvel' mostly plays like a perfectly solid addition to this massive commercial franchise".

Captain Marvel will be played by Academy award victor Brie Larson and Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has now hinted at a "pretty amazing" future.

So, it might be worth lowering your expectations a smidge before going to see Captain Marvel, but for the most part it seems to deliver another fun, escapist Marvel thrill-ride. Mendelsohn, again, is a hoot as Talos - a genuinely unexpected shift from numerous villains he's played in recent films - while Jude Law offers a slick, authoritative but charming turn as Yon-Rogg, the teacher trying not to be obliterated by his student.

I came away from watching "Captain Marvel" with a similar feeling as I did with "Black Panther". But her attempts to protect the planet from invasion get interrupted when S.H.I.E.L.D.

I haven't seen Captain Marvel yet, and I'm going to give it the same fair shake I did the Thor movies (before 3) and Wonder Woman. (I told you nobody's ever having any fun way out there in Superhero Galaxy Land.) A covert mission to rescue a Kree operative from the clutches of the Skrulls sets off a chain of events that literally propel Vers to the California of the mid-1990s. It no longer reflected the bra-burning activism of our mothers, rather, '90s feminism was about defining strength in womanhood, whether it be physically (à la Sarah Connor in Terminator 2) or tossing out the idea of an "emotional" female (see: Daria) or simply, defining who you are (like Lelaina Pierce in Reality Bites).

There's the usual Marvel matter of retrieving an all-powerful infinity stone, one of a set. For all their screaming and furious typing, the unfounded hatred will not stop excited Marvel fans from seeing the film. Visually, the film consciously evokes an earlier, Clinton-era style of effects work, notably in the honeycomb pattern of outer-space portals.

Huawei P30 and P30 Pro Renders Leaked, Revealing Astonishing Gradient Color Schemes
Firstly there's a much smaller teardrop notch at the top of the phone which is much less intrusive than on the current P20 Pro . The only other thing that is revealed in the image are some new colours with a striking blue and more subtle grey both on show.

Does Captain Marvel have an end-credits scene?

How's Larson? More than good enough. "It's hard to say whether that's a flaw in Brie Larson's performance or a failure of the script, but I came out of the film from writers/directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck not caring all that much about her beyond what her dazzling powers might mean for the next Avengers film, which is perhaps the lamest way of all to experience these movies".

But, I'll be the judge for myself when I see the movie this weekend. There are also two more blue chaps in Carol's Kree crew, but I can't even remember their names.

There's a strong argument to be made: Whatever the studio, these movies are producer's movies above all. Or they'll say I'm "virtue signaling", a repellent insult hurled at liberals by the far right, a shorthand way to call someone a liar and a poser who doesn't believe in the equality or fairness they espouse.

Ahead of this week's release of Marvel Studios' Captain Marvel - the first standalone female superhero movie to emerge from the MCU - Kevin Feige sat down with Rotten Tomatoes to talk about the final days of Phase 3.

Postscript: The cat! nearly forgot the cat. The common house cat resembles the dreaded Flerken, which contains terrifying, squid-like tentacles in its mouth.
