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

Given the character was first teased in the post-credits scene for Avengers: Infinity War, with Nick Fury paging her for help after Thanos' collects all of the Infinity Stones and snaps his fingers, there's understandably been a big expectation on how Captain Marvel's own credits stinger might tie into Endgame.

"Captain Marvel" is essentially an "Avengers" prequel, released less than two months before the final "Endgame " film punctuates this gargantuan chapter, so it's only fitting that the story itself is nonlinear, and Danvers' constant flashbacks provide a reasonably creative, timeline-jumping storyline. In the case of Captain Marvel, this toxic segment of superhero fandom is specifically angry with Brie Larson for advocating for feminist causes offscreen and for, well, not giving a crap about what the trolls say.

Captain Marvel takes it for granted that women can be tough and take charge. Captain America (Chris Evans), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), James Rhodes (Don Cheadle), and Bruce Banner (Mark Ruffalo) assess the damage that Infinity War baddie Thanos wrought when he destroyed half of all life in the universe. The outlet credited the low audience rating to "trolls" sandbagging the film, noting that the number of reviews in a matter of mere hours from "Captain Marvel's" opening is "more than the total of audience score reviews for Avengers: Infinity War for its entire theatrical run".

"Marvel has been hugely important to Disney's box office dominance over the past several years", Paul Sweeney, senior media analyst with Bloomberg Intelligence, told BNN Bloomberg in an email. Two, they've found Fury's pager, and and they've been monitoring it for some time. "Just like people we have extroverts and introverts". Regardless, they've got the pager and they've been running it nonstop-but they have no idea what it does, so they're playing it relatively safe and keeping the whole thing under wraps.

During the climax, the Kree and Skulls fight against each other for the Tesseract with Captain Marvel fighting for the Skrull side as she now knows the intentions of Yon-Rogg (Jude Law). So that's how Captain Marvel arrives on Earth-one major question down, about a million more to go. "Most of what we do is developing a strong bond and trust with an animal and gradually get them used to working on the sets and comfortable in the commotion of film making", the trainer said. So where was she during the trailers? Or is there something else going on? Looks like we'll be waiting until April for that.

Rather, it seems to be here just for fun, along the lines of the "drumming ant" scene after Ant-Man and the Wasp or the Captain America PSA after Spider-Man: Homecoming.

In a more humorous end-credits scene, Goose the cat (who turns out to be an alien called a Flerken, not an actual cat), walks onto Nick Fury's desk.

Goose begins to cough up a hairball, only to spit out the Tesseract he swallowed previously in the film. But it's not, don't worry. So when the "Avengers: Endgame" teaser premiered during the Super Bowl and featured some curious gaps between characters, fans took notice.

But with Captain Marvel, I would like to invite you to ask yourself if you have to be passionate about not liking this movie (if you happen to not like it).

You know, we very specifically have been holding back on anything leading up to Endgame, and as connected to that, Far From Home.
