The first image from “Captain Marvel” – a revolver around the heroine of the same name by Brie Larson show – made the audience curious about the next MCU.
When Brie Larson promised Entertainment Weekly that they would “go the Internet” together, the public thought the trailer of Captain Marvel would be coming soon.
However, on September 6, only the first set of blockbusters included 10 panels, along with the latest cover of EW with Brie Larson in superhero costumes, was released. Nevertheless, the series of information that EW magazine brings to make Captain Marvel really worth waiting.
A different story
Captain Marvel is the personal movie of the same name. But this is not a complete story about the origin of the character, although the hero has not once officially appeared in the MCU, but only revealed in the after-credits of the Avengers: Infinity War through the image. a logo.
The motif from the ordinary to the hero (also known as the zero-to-hero) has become quite boring in the superhero movie line. For example, Doctor Strange (2016), the movie revolves around the powerful sorcerer (Benedict Cumberbatch) possession of impressive graphics and techniques.
With the story of Stephen Strange becoming Doctor Strange, the audience seems to have seen a lot of other works, and even has a very similar feel to Iron Man (2008).
In fact, MCU has sought to be more innovative in introducing new characters. As with the Black Panther, Chadwick Boseman was originally an extra character in Captain America: Civil War (2016). Giving a certain sympathy, the character was momentum forward, launching its first private movie earlier this year.
Not only is it thoroughly introduced to the Black Panther, it is also the film that brings to mind the unseen secrets of the kingdom of Wakanda. It then becomes the battlefield between the Avengers and the henchmen of Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Avengers: Infinity War recently.
With Spider-Man: Homecoming, Peter Parker (Tom Holland) immediately hit the screen, and the audience no longer have to follow the tragedy of how Uncle Ben died, or young man determined to train, bright And how superhero.
Captain Marvel is a bit different, because at this moment, she obviously can not be famous with Spider-Man. The hero did not appear in the MCU as a Black Panther before filming. Perhaps the filmmakers still need some flashbacks when she was a brave female pilot, Carol Danvers.
Song, according to the crew from the movie EW, Captain Marvel from the beginning of the work was a famous hero and especially strong. She is compared to Marvel for DC’s Superman, and can even move planets. In other words, Captain Marvel is perfectly fair to Thanos.
Perhaps the challenge for Captain Marvel is not from the opponent, but mainly from the girl’s inner self. As co-director Anna Boden has said, “What made her special was the depth of Captain Marvel, the heroine who is still human, filled with her love and compassion.”
What are the challenges for Marvel Studios?
It is not difficult to realize that in the future, Marvel Studios and Disney will promote the promotion of Captain Marvel, with content and message revolves around this is the first female superhero of the MCU own movie.
After 20 works, the MCU eventually has an excuse to make the critical “male scorn” towards them to settle down. It is strange that Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) – a popular character – has not had a movie yet, while the fate of the Avengers 4 is a big question.
In fact, the MCU had a little bit of “progress” with Ant-Man and The Wasp as it brought the Warrior Ong up as the title. And both that and Captain Marvel are here before the events of Avengers: Infinity War.
With Captain Marvel, the film is set in the 1990s, starring Samuel L. Jackson (as Nick Fury as a young and still-looking man), Lee Pace (Ronan the Accuser), Djimon Hounsou (as Korath), and Clark Gregg (Coulson Secret Agent).
Also introducing the famous Skrull race in the Marvel comics world, Captain Marvel’s biggest mission is probably to explain where the heroine has been throughout the events since Iron Man (2008). , and why she is absent when the name Thanos operative monster around the galaxy.
Interestingly, the movies revolving around female superhero in the past are usually the prehistoric parts. Wonder Woman (2017) or Wonder Woman 1984 (2019) are the events that happened before Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) or Justice League (2017) for a long time.
If MCU’s Black Widow has its own movie, the project is said to be about the girl’s past, with the period she trained to be a talented spy.
Even Captain Marvel, the series, has a message of honor. But in the context of the past, the filmmakers seem to think that things have become better for modern women, and they should have been better off before.
Marvel Studios, however, showed some “cool hands” for heroes. Ant-Man and The Wasp surpassed the US $ 600 million global sales milestone, and show that the audience does not seem to care about the sex behind the costumes, but wants to know what happens next in the MCU. how is that
However, they still need to be cautious with the North American market. Ant-Man and The Wasp earned only $ 214 million, making it # 15 on the list of the 20 MCU releases in North America.
Captain Marvel will be in theaters on March 8, The International Women’s Day, which is often used by Disney for fantasy or fairy tales like Alice in Wonderland (2010), Oz: The Great and Powerful (2013), or the recent A Wrinkle in Time (2018).
But it is also a moment marking the 10th anniversary of Zack Snyder’s Watchmen (2009). A decade has passed, and the superhero line has turned out to be too much.
