The superhero, played by Brie Larson, is the first female character ever to front a Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) film. Though the film is precisely engineered to appeal to critics like me - feminist women who came of age in the 1990s - it's a disappointment, from the poorly shot action sequences to a shallowly written hero's journey.
Enough second guessing herself, it's time to shut out the people who undermine her. There were a lot of pull-ups and push-ups, but that wasn't all for Captain Marvel. "It was actually a mistake". "We are just allowing women to live in their truth and be their authentic self daily".
For context, here's what Jackson said during that 2018 roundtable: "At some point, we'll find out how powerful she is and all the things that she's capable of". The Anthony and Joe Russo-directed finale to the first chapter of the ongoing Marvel Cinematic Universe was already an addendum to Evans' original contract that expired with Infinity War.
The film was unbelievable, the young reporter answered, adding she loved that Larson was playing an "empowering female" role model.
Captain Marvel is not the first female-led superhero movie.

Chakrabarti did not return a request for comment. "We were transparent about it from the start", he said Tuesday on Twitter. Eric Trump called Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez "absolutely insane ".
Captain Marvel packages this dilemma in a stylish, thoughtful and amusing superhero movie that's a twist on the usual origin story formula. Her abilities prove so dominant that she can seemingly do anything, be it fly to farthest reaches of space without protective gear or destroy intergalactic warheads with a single blow. Oh, and she smiles, with one hilarious exception that must have been added late in production after internet trolls said she looked too serious in the trailer.
She continues to handle these polar facets of her character with aplomb as the movie progresses, relationships from her past begin to fit into the jigsaw, and simultaneously she learns more about the true strength of her powers.
"There's definitely a lot of Carol Danvers and Captain Marvel-inspired looks on this press tour, which has been really fun to include", Larson told PEOPLE while promoting the film. We meet everyone only briefly. Known for playing complex characters, including her Oscar-winning turn as Joy in the harrowing 2015 thriller Room, Larson did not want to play a one-dimensional protagonist.
Now, we know that Dr. Wendy Lawson (Annette Bening), a.k.a. Mar-Vell, was a gifted Kree scientist who used the Tesseract as part of her work on Project Pegasus, powering a lightspeed engine with it before her death sometime around 1989. The screenplay, by a mostly female quintet that includes co-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, also gets a bit hazy with the nature of Marvel's powers, although they certainly blossom during the course of this origin story.
By the end, she will accept her powers and know how bad they can be, and even emerge from the experience with some innocent blood on her hands.
These fragmented memories also lead her to a deeply emotional reunion with her former best friend and fellow pilot, Maria Rambeau (Lashana Lynch). Some of the film's best scenes are the ones in which Coulson and a young, more optimistic Nick Fury pretend like they're in a '90s buddy cop movie.
