  1. Captain Marvel was about as good as any of the non-Reeves Superman movies. I can’t wait to see how they solve the problem of her being so obviously overpowered. As the face of the “next generation” of Avengers, I think it’s interesting that she won’t be a newcomer by any means. She’s been an Avenger longer than anyone except for Steve and Thor and (maybe) Black Widow/Hawkeye. She’s a leader with experience, but we’re still getting to know her. I love that Marvel put the effort into making her comics good at the height of the MCU Phase 1 craze so that we can now see it pay off with movies. One thing the MCU does so much better than the DCEU is PLANNING. I love DC movies, of course, but they have a long way to go when it comes to setting things up and paying them off.

  2. My major complaint with Captain Marvel was definitely not enough Kree stuff on Hala. I get the decision to move the first ract along so we can get to the Earth stuff (which is better), but the movie misses the mark on establishing Carol’s identity as a Kree member, so later actions in the film kind of feel lame by comparison.

    The conversation in this episode nailed it though! I think you all were pretty fair and I found myself wishing I had watched the movie with lower expectations.

  3. I’m glad you were all able to review this film without spending the whole time getting caught up in the “controversy.” In 6 years, people will remember the movie, not whatever it is we’re going through right now.
