“Captain Marvel,” the newest movie from the comic books of Stan Lee and the Marvel Universe, is nothing short of marvelous.
Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck both do an amazing job directing and bringing all these characters and their stories to the big screen. They also do a fantastic job of honoring the late Lee with a tribute in the beginning of the film.
Lee was always known for making cameos in the Marvel movies, and thankfully he was able to shot his cameos for the next three, “Avengers: Endgame,” “Dark Phoenix” and “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” before his death.
The wit and comedy in this film are great. It is a must see, especially if you plan to watch “Avengers: Endgame” next. It will complete the puzzle and offer a hint of what is to come.
Brie Larson, known for roles such as “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and “Kong: Skull Island,” does an incredible job bringing Carol Danvers, Vers and “Captain Marvel” to life.
Jude Law, fresh from his recent role on “Fantastic Beast: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” comes to the Marvel Universe as Yon-Rogg, a member of the Kree and a leader of the Starforce Military who happens to train Vers before she is able to join the group on her first rescue mission.
We get introduced to a younger Nick Fury played by Samuel L. Jackson, who has been in almost every other Marvel movie, even if just to tease the next movie or to recruit someone. Agent Fury still has both eyes, and viewers will finally learn what happens to one. He is just a rookie, barely starting out in the SHIELD program, so he hasn’t seen much of superheroes or aliens.
While the cat, Goose, is cute and adorable, there might be a little more to him than you would expect.
The film is packed with ’90s references, including when Captain Marvel crashes into a Blockbuster, the look of grudge and the music. What more could you ask for? Plus, like any Marvel movie, it does have two end credit scenes that are important.
