I was given the opportunity to check out Captain Marvel during an early press screening, last night. Before seeing the film, I honestly wasn’t all too enthused about it, but I was going to give it a chance anyways. Is Carol Danvers the next big game-changer for the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
Walking out of the theater, I have to say I was fairly impressed. The film was better than I expected, and I legitimately had fun with a lot of it. Sure there was stuff I didn’t like, and questions that weren’t answered in a satisfying way, but hopefully there is still more to come with Carol. For my full thoughts on the film, be sure to check out the video below.
