The biggest unanswered questions in Captain Marvel

Actor Brie Larson attends the Los Angeles World Premiere of Marvel Studios'Captain Marvel at Dolby Theatre

Not only is "Captain Marvel" the first standalone film for a female Marvel superhero, but it also has no male love interest for the lead, and Brie Larson, herself, likes it that way.

Reviews for Captain Marvel are in and while some have been disappointed with Brie Larson's MCU debut, the overall response toward the latest Marvel Studios feature has been positive. In other words, she's everything you'd want and expect in a soldier, intergalactic or otherwise. But that's all right, since they already do, sight unseen. There's a nuance between these women that is different than from how men communicate in new partnerships.

"Ultimately, the story is about Carol Danvers, so everything had to focus and funnel through her", said Feige.

The Globe's top picks for what to see and do each weekend, in Boston and beyond.

In a piece titled "Why the Internet is Buzzing About a Gay Marvel Character That Doesn't Exist (Yet)", Esquire reported Tuesday, as the early reviews of feminist "Captain Marvel" were streaming, in that "an online rumor suggests that Marvel is on the hunt for its first gay superhero for The Eternals".

While Captain Marvel will give you a better understanding of the alien race, here's a quick understanding. What might have added some much needed texture and spice, if you will, to the otherwise drab visual palette is relegated to easy sight gags. I swore I was watching a repeat of an old "Streets of San Francisco" episode at one point. This is when the skills of directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (Half Nelson, Mississippi Grind) really pop out from under the smothering fog of CGI and noise. They still haven't figured out how to navigate an ocean liner instead of their usual handcrafted yachts.

He added: "What we're hoping is that, through the taxpayer rebate, all taxpayers in this state will also benefit as a result". The ticket was purchased October 23, at the KC Mart in Simpsonsville, a town of about 22,000 people outside of Greenville.

Actress Lashana Lynch has appeared in various TV shows and films, but after playing Maria Rambeau in Captain Marvel, it's pretty safe to say that her career trajectory is going to be - to steal the film's tagline - higher, further and faster.

Are you excited to see Brie Larson's Captain Marvel and judge for yourself? With her rubber combat suit and ability to shoot proton blasts from her bare hands, Vers isn't hard to spot at all, and soon attracts the attention of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), an agent with the covert security organisation S.H.I.E.L.D. But this is the origin story they went with and it does not include Bening teaching Larson how to fly a fighter plane. The results live near the Uncanny Valley but not actually in it. Captain Marvel is expected to join the Avengers for their battle against Thanos.

The villainous Skrull have an agenda of their own, and they can also shape-shift into a mirror image of anyone they see. And there's no better way of doing that than reading the final Mar-Vell story.

Because the internet is a odd place that turns cultural objects into artefacts of a never-ending cultural war, the issue of whether or not Captain Marvel is good has been waged online with the passion and dedication that people used to reserve for their families.

Wolfe wrote at The Wrap that, "Brie Larson is a flawless fit for Carol, who begins the film as Vers, a Kree soldier being trained by Yon-Rogg (Jude Law) to control her emotions to become a better fighter". (She left Earth in 1989 so it's feasible one of the last things she saw was Bruce Willis' mug smirking it up in the Moonlighting finale.) To be clear, she's an entertaining presence, but the film's most powerful moments are steered by other characters. Which, admittedly, may not be what the hordes are looking for in a superhero movie.
