Thanks Andrew, somehow struggling to get it embedded, just won’t work! Haha

Nice nice, looking forward to this one, spotted any Easter eggs in the trailer ?

Can see that she will be in her binary form with all those energy in her eyes , in a different costume from the first green one...

Looking forward to this one come 8th March 2019

Not to the level of Avengers or Black Panther, but certainly entertaining. :)

ps: Stay for the 2 post-credit scenes, one early, and one at the very end.

The Captain Marvel (from DC comics) you remembered is now known as Shazam! (DC comics, may also be called Captain Thunder).

Due to DC forgot to renew the copyright for the name Captain Marvel some time ago, it was registered by Marvel comics.

So now Marvel use the name Captain Marvel for this character which was known as Ms Marvel then.

I not so old to remember Shazam as the original Captain Marvel.  *LOL*

My childhood memory of Captain Marvel is the male character on the left.

That's what Wiki states as well, died in 1982 in the comics series.

Too poor to buy comics books when young.  All my memories of super heros are TV cartoons shown on Channel 5!

Today's viewing strange occurrence...

In the same row we sitting came a group with 3 young "boys" wearing "priestly" type of brown robes. We assumed they were from a religious type of school and didn't think too much about it.

Half way through the movie (escaping from the Kree in the space lab) an old gentleman from the group got up to try to exit the row. He reached the steps and seem to have issues walking, so naturally I started watching him to see if he needed help getting down the steps.

Slowly he managed to reach the bottom, and seemed to have problems going forward. So I got up and went down there, and gently took his elbow to steady him. He asked me to step forward and put one foot in front of his foot nearer to me. After I did, he put his foot in front of my leg and asked me again to put another leg in front of him and he proceeded again to put the same foot ahead of my leg. How strange!

It was then that one of the boys from this group came over to help the old man. As I turned to go back to my seat, I overheard the boy addressing the old man as "father", and asking if he wanted to go toilet. The old man must have replied yes, but the boy said that they need to go up the steps instead. And strangely, the oldman didn't have any problem ascending up the steps! And they seem to come back pretty quickly!

No problem walking up steps but got problem walking on flat ground?

What kind of walking impairment required another person to place their leg in front of him, and then the oldman can step over the person's leg?

Now you need to watch that show all over again. That kind of incident will throw your concentration on the storyline out of the window. You will probably be wondering through out the rest of the movie what had just happened and could not pay your full attention to the movie after that.   ;)

The big question is - if that old man is a priest, why he brought his disciples see this "anti-god" movie?

This movie is so draggy and I literally dozed off for a few minutes. This is my least favourite Marvel movies of all. Too much talk and extended character buildup so much so that it becomes repetitive and tiresome after some time.

I think ShaZam will be more entertaining than this Marvel’s Captain Marvel.

I find this movie too darkly lit. In most of the fighting scenes, I don’t know who is hitting who. Also the premise of how she got so powerful is unbelievable.
Spoiler: show
She had only absorbed the energy from an exploding engine core built by the Kree. It’s not as if she swallowed the Tesseract or something.

I think this is Marvel's worst movie of all time if you asked me... I rally don't understand why Marvel have to shoehorn Capt Marvel so late into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Just because Marvel wanted to introduce Capt Marvel into Endgame so that Phase 2 of the MCU can start?! Totally unnecessary if you ask me since Capt Marvel isn't a member of The Avengers initiative.

I'll put this movie as in the same category as Thor The Dark World. And I also personally don't think that casting Brie Larson as Capt Marvel is a "correct" choice... She lacked the heroine charm that makes us believe that she is someone that we can root for... I don't feel that connection at all to say the least...

My rating for this Marvel flick is at all time low at 6/10. Total trash if not for Sam L Jackson portrayal of the younger Nick Fury and of course Agent Coulson.

It wasn’t Marvel’s best effort but I didn’t think it was that bad. This serves as much an origin story for Nick Fury as it does for Cap Marvel. And i enjoyed it in that vein

Wife said she was considering sleeping through it. We were watching the 930pm show and we normally go to bed at 10pm these days because of our morning walks with the dogs.

With 20 movies already in the MCU, one can’t see a new one without comparing with the great ones like Thor: Ragnarok, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. In that context, Captain Marvel is a very meh experience.

After the awesome Black empowerment thematic arc in Black Panther and the game-changing Avengers: Infinity War, you would think they try to up the game with a female empowerment theme here, but no... their method is as lame as they come - Woman power means woman can do what man can do ten times better. Half the time she is under an amnesiac haze which doesn’t give the story propulsion. Action sequences are nothing memorable.

The only cool thing was the 90s nostalgia milking the laughs and the de-ageing of Nick Fury. Danvers and Fury’s banter was funny and unforced.

For me, the worst thing was this and it’s personal peeve thing, I can’t stand a superhero becoming so fricking SUPER POWERFUL until NOTHING can defeat her. I tuned out immediately. What’s the point of watching a final battle when there are no stakes. Sh1t! Even Superman needs Kryptonite.

It’s entertaining but ultimately forgettable. Marvel Studios missed an opportunity to do a better Wonder Woman here.

+1...it is a forgettable flick. But I have a feeling that Capt Marvel will "do better" in End Games next month. She will probably be more "matured" in her thinking and and likelihood to display some "humility" after almost 15 years of timeline!

Not quite sure what you mean exactly, but in the comic books, she absolutely is part of the Avengers. And even led the “The Mighty Avengers” (Iron Man’s side in the 2006-2007 Civil War saga) briefly in 2007.

But I do agree with you that she isn't the most natural fit for the role... a little too "smug" in her portrayal for my liking (... maybe that comes from virtual omnipotence? :P)

Let me correct myself. I’m actually referring to the way Marvel introduce Capt Marvel so late into the franchise which I don’t see the need. I wondered what will Carol Danvers role be in Endgames.

Probably has to do with our current Metoo era, and wanting a female superhero lead to parry DC's WW lead ;D

Well DCEU isn’t doing any good to begin with. I don’t think MCU trying to top anything here. In my humble opinion, MCU is trying to usher in the next phase of MCU superheroes after Eng game. And Captain Marvel is their first choice probably to lead the next phase of Avengers.

+1 totally agree with u, I think Brie Larson as captain marvel didn’t work out well. Something missing.... somehow lacking the oomph factor or the heroism factor, quite boring, hardly any comedy scenes and the action sequences were like so messy

I think it’s the worst among all the marvel movies

Yea man ! Endgame is the one I’m waiting for! Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint. But I believe the Russo brothers are good with their story telling. Can’t wait, excited and this month in two weeks another drama series game of thrones final season ! Lotsa April happenings
