    The movie was good by itself, but I dread what it will do to the MCU in the long run. One of the many reasons justice league was so bad was that the movie is basically over once superman is back as he could (and mostly does) finish the threat single handedly. Now the MCU has their own version of superman. Not going to pretend every avenger is equally powerful, but they all had their niche to fill. With how over the top Captain Marvel is, the default answer to every question becomes: Let her do it. I hope the first part of Endgame will be her giving up some of her power to fuel the "time machine".

    Tbf, I thought Vision would end up the "let him do it"-card, and look how that turned out.
    I doubt Captain Marvel will be the sole winner, feels like Dr Strange has far more of a key role.
    What am I waiting for? 8.2, Blizzcon, and the inevitable fall from grace that Classic will experience.

    don't hold your breath. disney also destroyed luke skywalker character just to prop up rey. so they might just do just that.

    I am a bit worried about that as well but she didnt seem THAT powerful in her solo film. Its weird. She never really got hurt but at the same time, her photon blasts and punches didnt seem to do that much damage to anyone. The power levels in Captain Marvel were all over the place to the point that its hard to judge.

    Some of it felt like that "acting with a green screen" thing, things just disconnected from each other at times.

    Also her power level felt really stupid by the end. And if she truly is the "key" to Endgame, then the decade of building up everything will have felt immensely wasted.
    And will probably kill my interest in future Marvel movies.
    I do wonder where future Avengers movies might go with super powered Thor and Captain Marvel. Age of Ultron would have ended with Thor zapping all the robots at once while CM just put the city back where it should be...

    Wasn't Thor in the middle of getting his axe while Thanos was fighting Stark, Quill, and co. on that other planet? Unless I'm forgetting something, he might not have even known about Thanos's planet and came to earth because he knew that was one place a stone (and thus, Thanos) was guaranteed to be.

    But be probably cant use them all again since the snap broke the glove.

    He probably couldn’t snap again but it seems like he can still use them. Post snap, he teleported away while removing the axe and healing his chest wound.

    No, Thanos shows up on Titan right after the bring me Thanos scene with Thor. That being said Thor had no reason to know Thanos would be on his home planet, but he did know there were stones on earth with the Avengers so it makes sense he would go there.

    Enjoyed it a lot.

    For me it was certainly not the best MCU film but certainly not the worst either. As far as origin MCU films go, I'd definitely put it above Strange, but I'd definitely NOT put it above Iron Man.

    I completely fail to comprehend how people thought Brie was bad in this movie. She definitely wouldn't have been my "fan cast" for the role, but like many other roles the MCU has cast over the years, I see her as Capt Marvel now.

    I saw someone else mention this earlier and it was true for me as well - the film was just seemed unnecessarily dark visually. I wonder if it was a technical issue at the theater.

    Spoilery thoughts:

    - Was not a huge fan of how easily she dealt with Ronan, the bombs, and his small fleet of ships. That felt a lot like "this needs to happen faster to keep run time down"

    - Goose was awesome and I don't understand why some people are frothing with rage over Goose being the cause of Fury losing an eye

    - Someone made this comment earlier and I agree - the beginning of the film was a bit too jumbled. I get what they were trying to do, but the execution was not stellar.

    - I hope Endgame at least pays some lip service to the inevitable question "why didn't Fury use the pager before this" OR "why is this the first time Captain Marvel responded"

    - So if Fury kept Goose, where is he now? What's the lifespan of a Flerken?

    Oh how I remember doubting their decision to cast first Edward Norton (justified) and then Mark Ruffalo (amazing casting choice).
    Hell, I think the only casting I was 100% along with from the start was Beneroid Cucumberpatch.,

    There is a large time jump between Infinity War and Endgames. Indications are that it is several years before Carol shows up. So why does anyone think that she could have had any effect on the Chitauri Invasion or Ultron ? Those dangerous part of those events took place over a few hours. There is no way she could have gotten there in time.

    Did Thor even know Thanos was going to be on Titan? He did know Thanos was heading to earth and went there to help his friends. As for his battle against Thanos it didnt seem like Thanos was expecting any sort of challange from Thor based on their previous fight and simply underestimated his opponent. I dont think Thor stood a shot if Thanos actually tried

    So after seeing it was surprised that it’s better then the low end marvel movies (Thor 1-2 ant man and wasp ect) but not close to the high end movies. Though I did think it was miles ahead of Wonder Woman.

    Well that's racist /s
    You really shouldn’t be saying other people are outraged when your the one bringing a ton of unrelated garabsge into a thread about a movie.

    It appears she shows up relatively soon after the snap. It’s not hours, but also not years.

    I went in with pretty low expectations but I actually ended up enjoying it a lot. Not the best Marvel movie (my favorite is Civil War) but definitely still a worthy entry into the MCU. I'm only going to dip my toe into this can of worms but: there were some slight feminist themes but it was not heavy handed in any way, in fact it felt more like a knowing nod to the audience without ever being too outright, it was pretty tasteful in my opinion. The guy who sort-of cat calls her outside the internet cafe, she simply ignores (though does take his motorcyle) and the "I'm Just a Girl" fight scene was more about being a human than being a woman, and reclaiming her humanity, at least that's the way it came across to me. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I was unsure when she was announced, but I thought she hit it out of the park.

    As someone else I read put it, Captain America keeps getting up when he gets knocked down, because it's the right thing to do.
    Captain Marvel keeps getting up when she's knocked down, because fuck you, asshole. And I thought Brie pulled that off, as well as Danvers' sense of humor (even if it was reined in a bit, for story reasons I won't spoil).

    Spoilery thoughts:

    - Was not a huge fan of how easily she dealt with Ronan, the bombs, and his small fleet of ships. That felt a lot like "this needs to happen faster to keep run time down"
    That was Danvers' big "just fuck right off" moment. This also isn't Ronan-With-The-Infinity-Stone-Of-Power, as we last saw him; Ronan's just a normal (albeit skilled) Kree commander. She blasted through a cruiser like it was paper, and then hovered in front of his ship in a giant "fuck off, or you're next", and Ronan chose to fuck off. The ease Danvers dealt with him is sort of the [i]point[/i]. Also, let's not forget her power source is an Infinity Stone; she's got a lot of "oomph".

    - Goose was awesome and I don't understand why some people are frothing with rage over Goose being the cause of Fury losing an eye
    Because they wanted that to matter, but I think it's more hilarious that it doesn't and Fury doesn't talk about it because it's embarrassing.

    - I hope Endgame at least pays some lip service to the inevitable question "why didn't Fury use the pager before this" OR "why is this the first time Captain Marvel responded"
    They answered that, in the mid-credits scene; they pretty clearly state that it's been a long time, a week at least, more likely a month or more, since the Snap. The battery in that pager died, they needed to get an external power supply grafted in, and that didn't happen recently by the way they talked about it. If you think back, most of those other issues resolved themselves VERY quickly. The Chitauri Invasion was over in hours. Ultron was under control until oh fuck Sokovia and then, again just hours later, we've got it fixed, it's fine. Most of the other films just aren't the kind of pan-global threats that would warrant calling Danvers in; they're internal and political, if that.

    If it takes Danvers weeks to a month or more to get home, even if he'd ever used the pager, he'd have turned it back off before she got anywhere close to the Earth. It only turns off in the film when Danvers is RIGHT THERE, so I assume the arrangement was that the beacon would be active until she got there and turned it off on her end.


    - So if Fury kept Goose, where is he now? What's the lifespan of a Flerken?
    For all that's holy, I would find it absolutely fucking hilarious if, after all the whining about Captain Marvel, it's Goose who straight-up eats Thanos in the end.

    Errr, no? Thor is very probably mightier than her, the Russo brothers outright said he could have oneshot Thanos then and there, with a full Infinity Gauntlet, if he had gone for the head. Marvel is definitely powerful in her own right, but I strongly doubt she's that OP. Crashing the ship isn't that much different from Hulk soloing that floating Chitauri creature in Avengers and he still got his ass soundly kicked by Thanos later. Mooks, and by extension their equipment, die very easily in Marvel movies, and aren't much of a measuring stick.

    I enjoyed it, people acted like it was this big old anti male feminism fuck yeah flick. But it wasn't. It was enjoyable, and all the things that made Danvers a strong woman, are things that make strong people. People just need to chill the fuck out, and not worry about what an actress says.

    It's especially funny seeing them still cling to the fantasy of this movie being boycotted.

    7+ rating on average seems pretty fair, it would probably be 7.7 or more if not for the hate campaign so it'll more than likely go higher.

    It's more original than say, losing his eye from an explosion triggered by a friend.

    That being said, I don't know how he loses the eye in the comics, so I went in with a clean slate on that.


    Hello. Conservative here. I enjoyed the movie, thanks.

    it's really easy to just put people in boxes isn't it?

    I liked Wonder Woman a lot, but Captain Marvel made the excellent choice to not include a romance sub-plot.
    Impeach the MF.
