Overall, though, Captain Marvel is worthwhile for younger viewers - both girls and boys - because she's a great role model.
What do you think about this new clip from Captain Marvel? Gaslighting, typically perpetrated by men who want to control women under the guise of mental superiority-"She's crazy" is one common refrain-is another tactic with which many women are uncomfortably familiar.
Brie Larson's Carol Danvers, the first woman in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to lead a solo film, stays single throughout the movie, which hit theatres on Wednesday. We see how central the heroine was in creating the Avengers team, with a hint at how crucial she may be in Avengers: Endgame, which opens next month. Captain Marvel spends the entire movie trying to figure out her true identity in what nearly amounts to a superhero version of "Memento" - and we still don't really know who she is by the end of the movie.
For the time being, it appears that Rotten Tomatoes has reset the Audience Score on the Captain Marvel page.
"Carol is not loveless, she's not joyless, she's not even sexless", DeConnick says. Rocket asks them something like, "Who has never been in space before?" And it's usually about a man.
Her mutated DNA gives her superhuman strength, dexterity, stamina, and reflexes. Or the Uber driver who told me Black Panther was the most boring movie he'd ever seen - was he watching a documentary about literal black panthers? She won't be defined by any guy.

The less fortunate souls - those who were not able to get a refund - were simply told to stop playing Anthem . A Sony representative didn't return requests for official confirmation.
Captain Marvel is a superhero. Jackson and Larson have an easy, amusing back-and-forth byplay, and there are some grounded dramatic scenes with Vers's friend Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). Back on Earth, she also finds herself in several risky situations as a pilot.
It's a bond that feels fresh in a film genre that hasn't always passed the Bechdel test (which measures whether two female characters in a movie have a conversation about something other than a man). We've never seen him push it before. I'm hoping Captain Marvel will rescue me. Sometimes. if he doesn't hit his mark the first time. he goes back to "one" on his own to try it again. The cast includes Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law. And even though many scenes in the Avengers: Endgame trailer show a clean-shaven Captain America, in this one he is sporting a beard, as he did in Infinity War, suggesting that only a few days (or a few hours) have passed since Thanos' culling.
"It was just practical; it wasn't by design", co-director Ryan Fleck agrees.
A slow-motion explosion in a barren landscape sends Brie Larson flying to the ground, blue blood running from her nose.
Captain Marvel could find love onscreen later, however. We all remember that line from Captain America: The Winter Soldier where Fury told Cap, "Last time I trusted someone, I lost an eye".
And of course, we save the best for last: Captain Marvel's binary powers, allowing Carol to essentially become as powerful as a white hole, generating and controlling any form of radiation and gravity.
