Retro 'Captain Marvel' Is Empowering But So-So Superhero Filler

Captain Marvel star Brie Larson

The film bows ahead of Avengers: Endgame in April, which will also feature Larson's character of Captain Marvel.

New tracking numbers suggest that the film could earn around $130 million domestically in its opening weekend and might even hit $350 million worldwide.

However, Captain Marvel star Brie Larson was out doing a Captain Marvel "Autocomplete Interview" for Wired, in which she addresses some of the most searched questions about Captain Marvel on the Internet.

Kelly: ‘I have been assassinated’
He requested that the camera stay on him, and began to yell, calling the allegations "stupid", saying, "use your common sense". Kelly told King he has done quite a few things wrong in relationships but said he has apologized to women for those.

Samuel L. Jackson (with Brie Larson) is digitally "de-aged" in "Captain Marvel" to look like Nick Fury back when he was a mere mid-level S.H.I.E.L.D. bureaucrat. Still, it's unlikely it will experience the same massive success as Black Panther (which opened with $202 million domestically) or Avengers: Infinity War ($257 million).

That sounds like a marvelous setup, but Captain Marvel doesn't really have any moments of cinematic grandeur; of eye-popping, breath-stealing "comics as art" or "superheroes as gods" wow though.

Anonymous winner claiming $1.5 billion Mega Millions jackpot
Some thought the victor was so overwhelmed at seeing the winning numbers pop up that he or she died on the spot. The newly minted billionaire has chosen to remain anonymous - meaning we'll likely never know their identity.

Believe it or not, Marvel had all the intentions to feature Captain Marvel in Avengers: Age of Ultron but the studio made a decision to dismiss the thought for some logical reasons. Mendelsohn, again, is a hoot as Talos - a genuinely unexpected shift from numerous villains he's played in recent films - while Jude Law offers a slick, authoritative but charming turn as Yon-Rogg, the teacher trying not to be obliterated by his student.

She sat down with the Jonathan Ross Show earlier this week and revealed that she hadn't she didn't even tell her mother she had received the role out of fear the big news would be leaked to fans. The exposition, especially in the first act, feels a bit breakneck at times as it rushes to try and get out of its own way. For those who don't know, the film has endured brutal attacks on Rotten Tomatoes by a disturbing number of angry men shouting from behind their laptops saying the film was "rotten" hoping to dissuade everyday cinemagoers from going to see the latest in the Marvel franchise. Why? Thus, she became the first Ms. Marvel, a human-Kree hybrid after an explosion fused her DNA with Mar-Vell's and bestowed her with extraordinary abilities. Larson and Jackson are hilarious in what's a bit of a mismatched duo. The bond that two women can share reaches deep into their core and is not just about who will support you, but also about the one person that will call you on your shit when you need them to. In an interview with Extra TV, Jackson said that he has been following her career.

The Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers character was originally created in 1968 by Thomas and Gene Colan as Ms. Marvel, but the Captain Marvel we'll be seeing on the screen is highly indebted to comic book writer Kelly Sue DeConnick's narrative. She immediately takes aim at Arnold Schwarzenegger on a True Lies poster in the first of many nods at "90s culture, including needle drops from TLC, Nirvana, No Doubt, and Hole that range in effectiveness". It is a condition of the film's very validity as it stands in the annals of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's lengthy cannon. And if that doesn't convince you you're in the '90s, the craftily selected music throughout the movie will do the trick. (I told you nobody's ever having any fun way out there in Superhero Galaxy Land.) A covert mission to rescue a Kree operative from the clutches of the Skrulls sets off a chain of events that literally propel Vers to the California of the mid-1990s. Or honestly just skip straight to the Captain Marvel stuff and you'll probably be fine.

America's newest crew capsule rockets toward space station
SpaceX's Crew Dragon - the first crew-capable spacecraft the company has ever produced - is about to be tested in a big way. Demo-1 is the first test mission of a commercially built and operated American spacecraft and rocket designed for humans.

It's a smart move to avoid the classic origin format here as we meet Carol when she's already a seasoned member of the Kree's elite Starforce, a team of warrior heroes whose only goal is to defeat the notorious Skrulls, an alien race who have been devastating the Kree's home planet of Hala.
