Captain Marvel breaks the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s glass ceiling this weekend, starring Brie Larson as the first female superhero to get a solo entry in the massively popular blockbuster film series.

Captain Marvel’s name is on the poster, but Goose the cat steals the limelight in Carol Danvers’ first feature. Cranky, steadfast, and always ready to fight, Goose is the perfect sidekick. Played by four different cats—Reggie, Rizzo, Gonzo, and Archie—Goose joins Hollywood’s pantheon of near-sentient animal life guides, helping Carol as she struggles to find her place in the universe and...

Dark Phoenix reshot its entire ending because it was too much like another big superhero movie

More cynical fans of the cinematic superhero genre might point out that the vast majority of modern comic book movies tend to end in the same way these days, with our heroes facing off against a computer-animated horde of generic bad guys, while one big, much angrier enemy ends up exploding in a ball of CGI fluff. (For bonus points, there’s also usually some kind of portal involved.) Still,...

Captain Marvel is being set up as the most powerful character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it’s time for the comics to lean into that strength and reinforce Carol Danvers as a heavy hitter. That’s exactly what you get in the new Captain Marvel series from writer Kelly Thompson, artist Carmen Carnero, colorist Tamra Bonvillain, and letterer Clayton Cowles, which puts Carol back in New...

The Marvel Moment

At the end of this month, Avengers: Endgame will bring to a head Marvel’s decade-long experiment in shared-universe storytelling. To mark the occasion, The A.V. Club is revisiting all 21 movies in this mega-franchise through a single, significant scene in each: not the best or most memorable scene, necessarily, but the one that says something about the MCU as an ongoing...

Marvel has taken its sweet time introducing Captain Marvel to its wide world of superheroes, and, according to a new report, it is going to continue moving at a lethargic pace when it comes to finding a director for the project. Variety reporter Justin Kroll posted on Twitter that the studio is “in no rush” and is “waiting to get a script they are happy with.” Kroll explains this is because...

Anticipation is high for Marvel’s forthcoming 1990s-set superhero film Captain Marvel, and fans have likely already committed hours to dissecting the trailer that dropped this morning.

Before she makes her MCU debut, here’s what you need to know about the history of Captain Marvel

Though it’s hard to imagine now, characters like Iron Man and Captain America had faded into relative obscurity in comics until Marvel Studios decided to make do with what it could still get the rights to. Since then, each member of The Avengers has become a star both in the comics and in the larger world of pop culture, to the point where the Marvel Cinematic Universe has become so large and...

Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury made his last MCU appearance in 2015’s Avengers: Age Of Ultron, so you can hardly blame the guy for wondering when he’ll be brought back into the fold, which is what he recently did in an interview with We Got This Covered. Jackson, who’s played the leader of the now defunct S.H.I.E.L.D. since 2008 (post-credits scenes count), said he’d reprise the role for more...

Nothing gets a troll’s juices flowing more than bagging on a blockbuster movie with a lady in it, so much so that the internet’s best and brightest have taken to crying about movies like The Last Jedi and Captain Marvel before they’ve even seen them. This sort of behavior’s been facilitated by review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, which allows users to review and comment on films prior to their...
