Marvel Musings #2: Captain Marvel

Here I am, watching all the Marvel movies in chronological order.

cap marvelThe second move was another one I hadn’t seen–Captain Marvel.

It was Marvel-ous! Although early on, when you see a holo-projection of Annette Benning’s character, I thought, “Annette Benning is playing the Great and Powerful Oz?” Not sure why they needed to alter and deepen her voice so much.

What’s not to love?

Kick-ass female lead. Strong, dedicated, striving to be her best. Subplot was her relationship with her best friend, not a romantic oogly googly. And her boss, another kick-ass woman, was played by Annette Benning.

Agent Coulson and Nick Fury – both with hair!

The cat. If you’ve seen it, you’re saying “Right?” If you haven’t seen it, you’re going to love the cat.

We are learn why Nick Fury has a pager to contact Captain Marvel in a future movie.

Visual effects were good. Nice product placement for Stark Industries.

My biggest disappointment is that we have to wait sooo long to see this character again. I don’t understand why she didn’t pop up in any of the Guardian of the Galaxy movies, given where she’s been living and who she’s been living with since her unfortunate accident.

If I was going to rank these movies:
1. Captain Marvel
2. Captain America

Of course, ranking is easy when you’re only two movies into the series.

Am I the only fan out here who can’t wait for more Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel?
