Early Captain Marvel Reviews Are Positively Glowing

Brie Larson as Captain Marvel in new poster

Men on the internet sure do have problems with Captain Marvel. If it isn’t them flooding Rotten Tomatoes with negative reviews before they’ve even seen the movie, it is their constant complains on Twitter that the movie is going to bad (again, having never seen it). So now that there are actual reviews for the movie coming out, one thing is very clear: Captain Marvel is just the movie everyone else has been waiting for.

So, it’s a nice breath of fresh air to be able to finally focus on the amazing reviews that Captain Marvel has been getting! People seem to love the ’90s feel to it, Brie Larson’s performance, and, of course, Goose the cat.

What’s important to note is that this is a milestone for Marvel. While we’ve seen the growth of the franchise throughout the last ten years, seeing a woman take on the mantle has always been something on the horizon, never seeming to actually arrive.

Now though, with Carol Danvers, we’re seeing a shift in the winds with the MCU.

And, of course, there is the cat.

Captain Marvel hits theaters this March 8th, and we can’t wait to see what’s happening with Carol Danvers. From the look of it, Thanos is going to be quivering in his boots when she shows up in Avengers: Endgame. and we’re HERE FOR IT.
