Why? Dont they like the male version?

Are you by chance thinking of DC Comics's Shazam (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Captain_Marvel_(DC_Comics))?




A little trivia (because I didn't know any of this till a moment ago either) :

The first Captain Marvel was Mar-Vell, a male Kree who was introduced in 1967.

The second Captain Marvel was Monica Rambeau, a New Orleans police lieutenant introduced in 1982.

The third Captain Marvel was Genis-Vell, the genetically engineered son of Mar-Vell. He first appeared in 1993.

The fourth Captain Marvel was Phyla-Vell, who is Genis-Vell's younger sister; introduced in 2003.

The fifth Captain Marvel was Khn'nr, a shapeshifting Skrull sleeper agent whose DNA was tied to the original Captain Marvel's, whose personality became dominant. This version was introduced in 2007 during the first Civil War event.

The sixth Captain Marvel was Noh-Varr, who was apparently an idiot who joined the Dark Avengers without realizing they were bad guys. He appeared first as Marvel Boy back in 2000, and became Captain Marvel in 2009.

The seventh and current Captain Marvel is Carol Danvers. Danvers first appeared in Marvel Comics in 1968, became Ms. Marvel in 1977, became Binary in 1982, and became the newest Captain Marvel in 2012. This is the CM upon which the film adaptation is based.

https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-15891_r.jpg
Meet Marvel's newest star
Paging Carol Danvers.

Captain Marvel is on the cover of Entertainment Weekly’s latest issue, and we’ve got the first look at Brie Larson’s part-Kree, part-human hero. Audiences briefly saw Carol’s symbol in the end-credits scene of Avengers: Infinity War, but come March 2019, the Air Force pilot with alien powers will be getting her own origin story.

Not only is Captain Marvel the first solo, female-led movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it’s an introduction to the most powerful hero the MCU has ever seen. (Another Marvel first: It’s set in the 1990s!) Click through for an in-depth look at all things Carol — as well as an introduction to a few of her friends and foes.



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-16473_r.jpg
A force to be reckoned with

The film sidesteps the traditional origin-story template, and when it begins, Carol already has her powers. She’s left her earthly life behind to join the elite military team Starforce on the Kree planet of Hala. (Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck describe Starforce as the SEAL Team Six of space.) Its members include Carol, Korath (Djimon Hounsou, returning from Guardians of the Galaxy), and Minn-Erva (Crazy Rich Asians’ Gemma Chan).



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-04698_r.jpg
A mysterious menor

Jude Law plays the commander of Starforce, who views Carol as a mentee and pet project. “These extraordinary powers she has, he sees them as something of a blessing and something that she has to learn how to control,” Law says. “That’s a motif throughout the piece, the element of learning to control one’s emotions and to use your powers wisely.”



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-06977_r.jpg
Mean and green

The film also introduced one of Marvel Comics' nastiest and most notorious baddies: the Skrulls. Ben Mendelsohn plays their leader, Talos, seen here in all his bright-green glory. But he's got another face, too...


https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-10279_r.jpg
Double duty

As any Marvel comics fan knows, the Skrulls are especially dangerous because of their unparalleled ability to shape-shift. On Earth, Mendelsohn’s Talos goes undercover as a human working within S.H.I.E.L.D. (seen here with directors Fleck and Boden). “It’s not easy being green,” Mendelsohn quips.



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-16329_r-2.jpg
Familiar faces

MCU fans have met the Kree race before in Guardians of the Galaxy, and two familiar faces — Hounsou’s Korath and Lee Pace’s Ronan the Accuser (pictured here) — will appear in Captain Marvel. In Guardians, Ronan is an outcast with extremist views, but here, he’s still a high-ranking member of Kree society.



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-05957_r.jpg
Totally '90s

Back on Earth, the 1990s are in full swing. Expect plenty of era-appropriate references — and fashion, judging by Carol’s Nine Inch Nails T-shirt.



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/dbr1520_cmp_v710-1032.jpg
Fire and fury

Captain Marvel marks Samuel L. Jackson’s ninth appearance as Nick Fury, but this Nick is a lowly S.H.I.E.L.D. desk jockey (who hasn’t yet met any superheroes). He’s younger than we’ve ever seen him (Jackson was digitally de-aged for the role), and perhaps most shocking of all, he’s missing his signature eyepatch.



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-09677_r.jpg
Ready for takeoff

Even before she became Captain Marvel, Carol was an accomplished Air Force pilot, and Larson spent time with actual pilots for research.



https://ewedit.files.wordpress.com/2018/08/opw-09639_r.jpg
Flying high

The film also introduces Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, one of Carol's oldest friends. She's a top-notch Air Force pilot with the call sign "Photon," and she's also a single mother to a young daughter.

Yeah I like that! The only part that throws me is the brief shot of her with a mask and her hair kind of doing a mohawk thing atop her head. I know that’s a comic design that probably pleases some segment of fandom, but to me it just looks absurd.

But that’s nitpicking. It looks like a solid movie, I can’t wait.

Fair enough.

The Avengers have Fury's pager, and have been keeping an eye on it, when it suddenly stops. Cap want's to know why it has stopped as Banner has been making sure it has power. He turns around and Cap Marvel is standing behind him and asks "where is Fury"
There is no warning she will be there, and some of the scenes from the Endgame trailer are actually from this post credit scene.

Are we still spoiler tagging? I put "spoilers" right in the thread title...

Scattered thoughts:


Loved the change to the Marvel Studios company logo at the start, with it being all shots of Stan Lee. :(

Brie Larson was awesome, SLJ was hilarious. Baby Coulson!

I really liked how it so effortlessly stitched together the more cosmic MCU with the more Earthbound MCU, and how along the way, they really shaded in some of the backstory for the 'state of the galaxy' as we were introduced to it in Guardians of the Galaxy.

Appreciated the Skrulls twist, particularly because I've seen a few sites out there loudly pontificating on how the Skrulls are the next Thanos.

Rambeau didn't really do anything for me. She seemed to be there only as a means for Carol to remember her past, but once that was done seemed to have nothing at all to contribute to the plot.

Soundtrack was pretty awesome, I'm surprised that Marvel isn't pushing it a bit harder a la Guardians.

Goose!

Enjoyed that her callsign is now so important to the MCU lore.

Still slightly thrown by the timeline here... The film is set in 1995 and seems to imminently set up both the Phase One movies and where we start in Guardians. Except....Iron Man 1 isn't till 2008 (2010 if you prefer the "official," riddled-with-errors Marvel timeline) and Guardians is set in 2014. So....it took Fury 13(/15) years after this to find another hero, and it took Carol 19 years to beat the Kree?

I was rolling my eyes harrrrrrrd at an idiot sitting right behind me at the theatre. As the credits started rolling (so people were okay to talk), he starts insisting to his friends "oh my god, that must be a second Tesseract! Because SHIELD has the Tesseract from WW2 until The Avengers and this is in the 80s, so this must be a second Tesseract!" and refusing to hear anybody tell him why he was wrong (on either point).

And then chills at the post-Infinity War teaser.

Gatefan1976
March 9th, 2019, 06:21 AM
I think we should spoiler tag for a little longer, seems only fair as I saw this before pretty much anyone else (thanks time-zones!!) and you are the only other person here to see it yet.

I will say though, without tags that the Stan Lee tribute opening credits were freaking EPIC, and a fair show of respect to a man who without, Marvel would not be what it is today. His Cameo however, had me literally LOL'ing (and getting told to shut up), as it was THAT movie he is reading the script for that convinced Stan to be more than just a writer, and I am SURE the director of that movie was in 7th heaven seeing it.

I was happy with the Fury content, and there WAS a scene sorta explaining why Fury trusts Coulson so much, but the content of most of the Coulson scences was sorta bland. Coulson is one of my fave characters in the MCU, and he pretty much got wallpapered into "distant intense looks".


That Endgame tease though, only just over a month, any idea when tickets are released?

So...

Dawn of the universe - Created

??? - approx. 960 AD - At some point, it comes into Asgardian custody, until they decide to leave it on Earth (Norway) during the Viking era.

ca. 960-1942 - Hidden in Norway, where at some point, it ends up in the church we see at the beginning of The First Avenger.

1942-45 - Seized by Hydra, who weaponize its power.

1945 - Crashed into the North Atlantic by Cap.

1945ish - Recovered from the floor of the North Atlantic by Howard Stark.

1945ish - 1989ish - In SSR/SHIELD custody. Seems to have been largely forgotten about for a number of decades, until Mar-Vell comes to Earth to conduct her secret experiments. Not clear exactly what year she started utilizing it, but it was 'lost' on her ship in orbit when she died in 1989.

1989-95 - 'Lost' aboard Mar-Vell's ship in orbit, until reclaimed by Carol Danvers/Nick Fury/Goose.

1995-2012 - In SHIELD custody, collecting dust for about 16 years until SHIELD/Nick Fury decides to try to weaponize it following the Asgardian incursion in 2011 (Thor).

2012 - Loki seizes it during his invasion of Earth, uses it to open a portal between Earth and [somewhere in the cosmos], allowing the Chitauri to invade. Avengers defeat the invasion and close the portal. Afterward, Loki and the Tesseract are taken into custody of Thor, to return to Asgard.

2012-17 - It's stored in Odin's Vault on Asgard, and presumed lost when Asgard falls to Hela, but was actually secretly stolen by Loki before the fall.

2017/18/19 (depending on when you think Infinity War takes place) - Thanos attacks the Asgardian refugee ship, murders Loki, and takes the Tesseract for himself. He shatters the Tesseract container, releasing the Space Stone for the first time in (who knows how many) millennia, adding it to the Infinity Gauntlet. Later uses the Space Stone, in tandem with the rest of the Infinity Stones, to kill half of all life in the universe. The Snap seems to seriously damage the Gauntlet, not clear how/if it affected the Stones. After taking the Stormbreaker blow to the chest, Thanos uses the Space Stone to create the portal he uses to escape Earth and go to....wherever it is he went at the end of Infinity War.

Cheers, knew I was forgetting something.

It wasnt mentioned how she got hold of it was it?

It was not, but
the facility that Fury took Carol to, that had the library stacks in it and where the Coulson stairwell scene took place? Apparently that was meant to be the same facility where SHIELD was experimenting on the Tesseract at the beginning of The Avengers (where Loki portaled in, wrecked up the place, and brainwashed Clint). So Mar-Vell was, presumably, working there as a SHIELD scientist. With the Tesseract being in SHIELD custody at this point in the timeline, it's not a huge stretch that should could get a hold of it just by requesting use of it.

Another fun related tie-in? This all ties into Iron Man 2 as well (https://comicbook.com/marvel/2019/03/08/captain-marvel-iron-man-2-pegasus-easter-egg/): while Fury has Coulson guarding/keeping Tony stuck at home following the fight with Rhodey, Tony tells JARVIS to give him all the data on "Projects PEGASUS, EXODUS, and GOLIATH."

Well...GOLIATH was finally detailed in Ant-Man and the Wasp as being the experiments that Hank Pym and Laurence Fishburne's character were doing to make him grow bigger. And now we know what PEGASUS is too! (Still no idea what EXODUS is yet, though).
