Are We About to Get a Gay Superhero in New Marvel Franchise?

  • Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson on 'Carpool Karaoke The Series'

Jackson, who plays Nick Fury, seemingly spilled the beans by saying Brie Larson's character *could* travel through time, and now he's walked that back completely, saying he "made up" those Captain Marvel powers.

Brie Larson in Captain Marvel. To launch a Captain Marvel film set in 2019 with her being presented as a "novelty" in a man's world within the film's world would seem tone deaf and clumsy (even if that is what's happening in the "real" 2019). There has been an attempt by this contingent to cut the legs out from under the film ahead of its release by posting negative reviews on aggregation sites, a reaction that is as depressing as it is unsurprising. This has lead to many Marvel fans speculating Captain America will die in Avengers: Endgame.

Jax: And I would love it!

The IMAX release of "Captain Marvel" will also be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience® with proprietary IMAX DMR® (Digital Re-mastering) technology. Under the fine eye of cinematographer Ben Davis, who is largely responsible for the look of the MCU's intergalactic excursions, the film switches between several aesthetics - with nifty homages to not just '90s buddy cop movies, but also '90s action (Top Gun) and '90s sci-fi (Armageddon). In the end, setting up the series' next blockbuster may be Captain Marvel's main accomplishment.

But like Wonder Woman, Larson said Captain Marvel had to pay more than lip service to women.

That elision is particularly striking because the years during which the movie takes place were exceptionally fraught ones for women in the military.

By the end, she will accept her powers and know how bad they can be, and even emerge from the experience with some innocent blood on her hands.

So now they go and morph into, 'Let's inspect every deal he's ever done. "It's very clear that the president obstructed justice". Gergen noted that House committees "have a long history", but warned the Democrats must not "overplay their hands".


The film begins like a sci-fi noir: she greets the dawn alone in a small apartment overlooking a city of concrete towers and floating traffic having barely slept, beset by yet another nightmare of a deeply buried yet vague trauma. 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.

In a review headed with the words "It's no Black Panther", he accuses Captain Marvel of "unimaginative plotting, cut-rate villains [and] a bland visual style". He also plays with a cat named Goose, who has a strategic role in the plot.

What she can not do, alas, is make the makers of the Marvel movies veer sufficiently from their well-worn and highly lucrative template to give her the memorable and distinctive vehicle that she deserves.

She's even used the Captain Marvel press tour to quip about the patriarchy that is "ringing on [her] parade".

Part of why is Carol Danvers, an Air Force officer and security chief. Brie Larson stars as Vers, a member of the Kree-race of space warriors who's determined to find out her connection to Earth when she crashes on it with flashes of past memories.

According to Clark, there may be chances of a complete reboot of the entire organization of SHIELD which will involve the new people presently known to everyone. "Those are the defining moments of her character, where she doesn't lay down she gets back up". After a beat she asks, "Where's Fury?" Helping my mom rediscover her love of comics, and to see how much it means to her that a woman can be a fighter pilot in a flight suit (not a swimsuit!) and an eponymous superhero in one of the biggest pop culture franchises in the world, has been pretty special.
