I'm sorry but exactly what vibe are they going for with what I thought was supposed to be the strongest character in the marvel universe? is this another comedy like Thor??? I don't read the comics but this looks odd at best to me.

I think the TV spots have helped me get more hyped. Still a not sure on all her delivery but the last line "I'm kinda done with you telling me what to do" was the best

Every Marvel movie has some level of humor. The vibe i get from her is she is a smart-ass - that seems like a smart-ass response to a Skrull yelling in your face.

Got my ticket for the fan event on the 7th. Been going that way the last few movies and enjoy the experience.

Speaking as someone who has read the collected comics, I can attest that Captain Marvel is a bit of a smart ass and they are just being faithful to the character. Only problem is that pushing a smart ass woman might be a turn off for a lot of men, and let's be honest, men are the target demographic for the MCU.

That website sure took me back. Great idea to go with the 90s look.

There's already some weirdness going on with the pre reviews, where people who have had no way to see the movie are posting terrible reviews based on Brie trying to get some variety in ethnicity and gender of reviewers. In my mind, those are the people who are going to be turned off by a "smart ass woman" the same way I'm sure some people were turned off by the cast of Black Panther. Oh well.

That always happens. The only thing that strikes me as weird is how short this one is (100 minutes).

Love the Twitter reactions from the early screening. We have our tickets for our favorite reclining seats in our favorite eat-in theater. Five minutes walking from my house

Well, would you look at that. Women relating to Captain Marvel's strong female persona, 90's kid personality, and female presence in Twitter posts all while wanting to see little girls have her as someone to look up too.

Some Dudebros, Dude Geeks, and Dude Nerds aren't gonna like that.

Oh it's already out there. Just look at the story about her upcoming press tour for CM. Dude Bros are freaking out .

None of those reviews are real until that Stuckman guy everyone gets a hardon for starts talking.
