While not the best of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, I think ‘Captain Marvel’ makes a case for being in the top third of the movies that Marvel Studios has been pumping out since ‘Iron Man’ kicked things off in 2008.
Brie Larson plays Marvel’s first bona fide female solo hero, and between the acting, the story, and an appearance by a couple of old friends, this action movie set in the 1990s does a great job of setting up Captain Marvel’s origin story, however short of a less than 30 second mid-credit scene that explains where she was during the events of Avengers Infinity War, the movie stands on it’s own.
I thoroughly enjoyed Captain Marvel, and found it to be a great movie for anyone who is a fan of the super-hero genre. Without going into spoiler territory, the movie had all the hallmarks that Marvel is known for; an awesome soundtrack, humour, incredible special effects, and they even brought together one of the better MCI stories. I do know that after watching this movie, I’m never going to look at cats the same way again.
If you have a chance to check this out before watching Endgame, I would take the opportunity, but if not, I don’t think it will take away from your Endgame experience. Avengers Endgame is in theatres now.
