'Captain Marvel' soars higher, further and faster than standard superhero origin story

Review: 'Captain Marvel' gets an average introduction

It is going to be "marvel'lous weekend ahead and its all thanks to Marvel Studios" Captain Marvel.

Soy colors Captain Marvel's costume more vibrantly than the Prowler UFOs and the island they're fighting above - so she already stands out on the page.

"I like being very natural", she agrees.

Instead, may reviews (including Express Online) have been a little underwhelmed, finding the film a little disappointing and predictable and inferior to most of the Marvel output so far, rather than transcending and elevating it.

Larson's down-to-earth persona is mirrored in her penchant for natural beauty and love of the great outdoors - aspects of her life that provide a necessary counterpoint to the glitz, glamour, and red carpets of the movie industry. "That thing that we would go fight for, to the ends of the Earth - that could be our best friend. It's ideal to me and so meaningful".

One of her favorite looks of the tour?

"It's 2019. And everybody here looks for the day when it is not newsworthy that a woman is directing this kind of movie", she said at press conference in Singapore. The film is a creative origin story for Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel, wrapped up in a plot with more twists and turns than you might expect.

James Corden shared a lengthy promo for the upcoming new episode, which kicked off with the Captain Marvel co-stars hitting the road in an SUV, flipping on the radio and signing along to Grande's hit track "7 Rings."

Disney-owned Marvel Studios' first female-led superhero movie was targeted on Rotten Tomatoes, where review bombers dropped its anticipation rating to the lowest of any Marvel Cinematic Universe entry. As a light speed, fire-fisted superhero, it's clear that Captain Marvel could easily smash the likes of Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk into tiny pieces.

She comes face to face with her piloting mentor Helen Cobb's younger self - a courageous, daring woman who is also willing to shred Danvers' timeline to claim the powers of Captain Marvel for herself, and who wonders if perhaps the older Cobb wanted to gift Danvers an ordinary life.

Jackson and Larson also carry over their buddy comedy chemistry from their high-flying Marvel adventure into their Carpool Karaoke appearance with the help of a lie detector test, as they quiz each other's opinions on their performances, singing, sartorial choices, and whether or not they've farted while filming scenes. I feel like my eye goes to her, and I feel this groundedness when she's on screen. It is also about how someone can make peace with her past and realize that her true power actually comes from within.

The basic premise of Captain Marvel - a gifted figure from a distant galactic sphere lands in Los Angeles - carries echoes of Thor, Superman, and many a past Spandex saga.

But what lingers most in the film's final moments is not the fog of war, but a vision of friendship and solidarity.

Barry Keoghan stars as Yorick alongside Diane Lane as Yorick's mother, Imogen Poots, Juliana Canfield, Marin Ireland, Amber Tamblyn, and Lynch. The titular Yorick disguises himself with a mask, realizing he might be the only surviving man. The series is executive produced by Michael Green (Logan, Blade Runner 2049) and Aïda Mashaka Croal (Luke Cage), who also serve as showrunners. So she'll likely continue to show the same strength and dynamic complexity that's endearing her to audiences as Maria Rambeau.
