Captain Marvel SPOILER discussion

They went all-in on Captain Marvel being the most powerful superhero, hands-down, and it's awesome. She's basically primed to be the anti-Thanos and I'm here for it. Since she is essentially the blue Infinity Stone personified, I wonder how she'll react/interact with Thanos' gauntlet when the time comes.

The post-credits scene where she is just suddenly "there" with the Avengers was fantastic. No pomp, no explosive entry... just... I'm here, where's Fury?

    So good. So much fun. Such a great story.

    I was a little taken aback at the beginning when they portrayed the Kree as this utopian technocracy, since they were already set up to be the bad guys in Guardians vol 1. It's an interesting take on them, and it was cool to see Ronan rounding out the circle of the movies.

    Very cool switcharoo with the Skrulls just being refugees and the Kree being oppressors.

    The Stan Lee tribute in the Marvel splash was awesome except for the person in the row behind me cutting onions.

    End credits scenes were fantastic. Agreed that her just popping up ready to get to work was perfect. Anyone who's owned a cat knows the terror of that sound. Fortunately, not everyone has had a cat that swallowed a tesseract.

    Older kids went with the wife last night. She called me from the theater asking if I wanted to go today and she bought tickets for the 5 of us before she even left.

    As we were waiting for the end credits scenes, the oldest was asking if we could go again tomorrow.

    Edit: Minn-Erva is new waifu. Change my mind.

    Thought it was decent, maybe mid-tier for an MCU character intro movie. I like her character, though. She's likeable.

    Wasn't wowed, but glad I saw it.

    Captain Marvel subverted expectations in a grand way.

    I thought it was one of the most creative origin stories they have ever done. Let's face it, the character intro origin stories have been a bit formulaic. Hell Iron Man and Dr. Strange are pretty much the same film, a good film mind you, but the same.

    I had low expectations for this based on the trailers. Captain Marvel was not only another win for the MCU, it's one of the better films they have done.

    It's got some depth if you allow yourself to see it. Her humanity, her imperfection, her emotion, it's what makes her heroic, and what makes the cold ultra logical Cree and Thanos villainous. That moment when she keeps getting up after falling down, it got to me man. I'm a softie.

    Plus cool music because the 90's were awesome.

    I'm with Thrax on this. Saw Captain Marvel, it was alright, it was a good buddy cop movie, but it felt like a really short movie compared to the other character intro movies. I wish it had been a bit longer and delved into a bit more, maybe showed her helping the Skrulls find a new homeworld.
