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.
I have been waiting what seems like forever for the Avengers 4 trailer to drop. My theory was that it would drop on the same date as the Avengers: Infinity War trailer did last year, but alas that day came and went with nothing. When the trailer finally popped upon YouTube I could barely get the words out to intro my trailer reaction. I didn’t want to waste any time and watched it immediately. Then I watched it again. And again. And again.
If you have been following me for a while than you know I was out in LA earlier this year to help promote the in theater release of Ant-Man and The Wasp. I interviewed most of the cast (Paul Rudd does not age and Evangeline Lilly is just as amazing as you would think) as well as the Director Peyton Reed. All those interviews can be found here on my site. I also got to see the movie before it came out, and I loved it so much I still went and saw it opening weekend.
OMG, OMG, OMG…. we FINALLY got it! A FULL LENGTH trailer for Captain Marvel. AND a poster. I can’t. I love her. Carol Danvers has been one of my favorites for a super (no pun intended) long time. I adored her as Ms. Marvel and was thrilled to see her pick up the Captain Marvel mantel. When I found out she was going to be the first solo female superhero lead for Marvel, I immediately thought about how much she deserved it. Now we have seen actual footage – and I might die.
