Now that Captain Marvel has been out in theaters for a few weeks, the question on everyone’s mind is can Carol Danvers beat Thanos? Fans of the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe are at odds about this. Technically the writers and directors of the films can do whatever they want, regardless of what we have seen in the comics or what our opinions are. But I wanted to know what the fans thought, and I found some pretty hardcore ones to weigh in.
Marvel just quietly released a ton of character posters for Avengers: Endgame, and they told us so much more than what you might think at first glance. These posters are split in to two groups – colored, and black and white. The black and white seem to be the Avengers who are no longer with us, and the colored poster are those that will be “Avenging the Fallen”. But there are some I was not expecting to see in a certain group (Shuri), and my heart is a little broken.
AHHHHHH!!!!!!! You guys!!! This morning we got a surprise trailer – the second Avengers: Endgame trailer – and I have so much to say about it. Tony Stark is back on Earth and with the team! Poor Scott Lang is super confused, but back from the Quantum Realm. Hawkweye’s family is growing up so what sent him down a dark path to become Ronin? Rocket has found a new shoulder to perch on, and Thor + Carol Danvers (Captain Marvel) = LOVE!
I took my daughters to see Captain Marvel on opening night and the whole family loved it. I already wrote a spoiler free review, but now that the movie has been out a few days I am ready to get in to the spoilers with you. If you have not seen this movie or want to avoid Captain Marvel spoilers, bookmark this post for a later time. As a comic book reader I can tell you a lot of things were changed, but they all made sense to me in the end.
Last night I finally was able to see Captain Marvel in theaters. I felt like I had been waiting way too long to see it, probably because I was on the set a year ago. As a big fan of Carol Danvers in the comics, sure there were some changes. Two in particular upset me at first (but that is for another post), however it all came together and made sense in the end. This was the first Marvel movie my daughters, ages 6 and 7, saw in theaters, and now they are begging for more! We all really enjoyed the film, from beginning to end.
While I was in town for the Avengers: Infinity War World Premiere, I also got to do something amazing. The afternoon before the premiere we were brought to the set of Captain Marvel. Yes, CAPTAIN MARVEL! While there I got a behind the scenes look at so many things. I saw some of the props used, browsed the costume trailer, chatted with executive producer Jonathan Schwartz, and even watch a scene being filmed. I am pretty sure that my face was in a permasmile the entire day as I took it all in.
Last night was the first press screenings of Captain Marvel. While I was on set last year, I am still uber jealous of those that have seen it already. I cannot wait to go higher, further, faster with Carol Danvers next month. You know I am going to bring my daughters with me so they can witness girl power at its finest. And those Skrulls man… cannot WAIT to see them kick some butt – and get their butts kicked!
Oh my goodness guys, we FINALLY have the Spider-Man: Far From Home teaser trailer – and it was so worth the wait! WOW! I love Mysterio in the comics and I was really scared that he would look cheesy. Because, let’s be honest here, he has a cheesy costume. But he doesn’t! He looks amazing! And I feel like even though we didn’t learn much, we learned a few things.
You guys KNOW I am excited about Captain Marvel! I mean, I was ON THE…
You might recall that last year, Amy from As The Bunny Hops and I did a Countdown to Infinity War. We watched all the movies again and live tweeted them. It was so much fun. Then Avengers: Infinity War devastated us. Now we have Avengers: Endgame coming up and we updated the schedule, just as we promised you. Here is how you can watch all the MCU movies, in order, before seeing Avengers: Endgame in theaters this upcoming April.
