Captain Marvel is only in its second weekend at the box office (which added considerably more cash to the movie’s haul), but it’s already a certified hit. Even though Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and Ben Mendelsohn are the stars, there’s one breakout character that fans can’t get enough of, and they’re not human. It’s Goose the cat, and the little feline is getting a pair of new Funko POP figures that fans of Captain Marvel are going to love. But if you want to see them, beware of spoilers. ...

‘Captain Marvel’ Original Ending Revealed (And Why the Final One Works a Lot Better)

With her wildly successful first solo movie Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers immediately established herself as the most powerful and experienced superhero of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saving the world since 1995. But the origin movie presents the MCU with one problem: explaining where Carol has been for the past 20 years. The onscreen conclusion of Captain Marvel goes on to show this, but editor Debbie Berman revealed that the Captain Marvel original ending was almost completely different. S...

Interview: Kevin Feige Talks ‘Captain Marvel’ Spoilers, The Future of Goose, Stan Lee’s Tribute, and Disney+ TV Shows

A couple of weeks ago, I got an opportunity to chat with Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige about Captain Marvel. We discussed the Avengers: Infinity War after credits scene, if Captain Marvel was originally supposed to appear in that movie, how Carol’s powers won’t break the MCU, Stan Lee‘s tribute and cameo, the whereabouts of Goose, why Nick Fury hasn’t used the pager before Infinity War, and the upcoming live-action Marvel television series for Disney+.

Marvel’s Secret Invasion Could Still Happen, Assures Kevin Feige

The Skrulls are some of the most famous villains in Marvel Comics, and it all lead to an epic comic book crossover storyline called “Secret Invasion” that ran through a self-titled eight issue limited series and several tie-in books from April through December 2008. With the introduction of the Skrulls in 2019’s Captain Marvel, it was no surprise that fans expected the film to plant the seeds for an eventual Secret Invasion movie. But while evidence points to the contrary, Marvel studios chief ...

‘Captain Marvel’ never quite takes flight

“Captain Marvel” isn’t a bad movie, exactly. It seems, at this point, that Marvel’s moviemaking machinery is incapable of producing a genuinely terrible film. There’s no “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” or “Suicide Squad” in the Marvel filmography, just “Thor: The Dark World,” “Ant-Man” and “Doctor Strange” — movies that are fine but forgettable. Still, I wanted more than that for “Captain Marvel,” and I suspect that I’m not alone. That’s because after 20 films, Marvel Studios is fina...

'Captain Marvel' directors on why they have nothing but love for the internet trolls, and how being falsely linked to another Marvel movie might have gotten them the job

"Captain Marvel" directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck opened up about the advice "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler gave them and why false reports that they were in the running for the "Guardians of the Galaxy" job back in 2012 might have gotten them on the radar of Marvel executives. Boden and Fleck also addressed the internet trolls who have been writing negative reviews about the movie on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb.   If you think making a Marvel movie is a lot of pressure, try making the...

Review: 'Captain Marvel' is a Photon Blast of Fun and '90s Nostalgia

Created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan, Captain Marvel debuted in 1967's Marvel Super-Heroes #12. During the Silver Age, the name belonged to Mar-Vell, a Kree military officer who becomes Earth's protector. In the '80s, Monica Rambeau assumed the title and later became the leader of the Avengers. In the '90s, Rambeau ceded the name to Mar-Vell's son, Genis-Vell, who passed it down to his sister, Phyla-Vell, in the 2000s. In 2012, Carol Danvers, a super-heroine long known as Ms. Marvel, assumed the...

‘Captain Marvel’ Directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden Talk the Genius of Ben Mendelsohn, Renaming Goose the Cat, ’90s Music, Stan Lee and More [Interview]

A few weeks ago, I sat down with directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden to talk about Captain Marvel. In the discussion, we geeked out over the genius of Ben Mendelsohn, the tightrope walk of making a prequel, choosing a kick-ass ’90s soundtrack, the choice to change Goose’s name from the comics, and Stan Lee‘s cameo. I really enjoyed the film. Ryan: Thanks. When on set, we talked to Ben Mendelsohn and he was in character. Anna: He was Ben Mendelskrull. Yeah. And he was just incredible then. An...

Is anyone else getting tired of role models?

‘Captain Marvel’ Review: Marvel’s First Solo Female Superhero Movie Makes a Solid Landing

Captain Marvel is a film with a chip on its shoulder and something to prove, and it revolves around a character with characteristics to match. Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) is unlike many female protagonists we’ve seen before: a hot-headed, unapologetic, gruff warrior with a tendency to take wild swings at her enemy before landing a solid punch. But once she connects, she connects hard. Right from the outset, Captain Marvel comes in swinging. It takes a few wild swings for the movie to finally la...

How ‘Captain Marvel’ Was Largely Inspired By ‘RoboCop’

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is packed with references and homages to staples of several different genres, from Three Days of the Condor (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) to Inception (Doctor Strange). One would be forgiven for assuming that with all of the characters wandering around the MCU in metal suits, the 1987 sci-fi action classic RoboCop would have been a mainstay reference in that conversation as well, but it seems like the upcoming Captain Marvel is the first MCU movie to be hea...

Ben Mendelsohn Hilariously Explains What It Means to Be a Skrull in ‘Captain Marvel’ [Set Visit Interview]

Marvel is notoriously secretive about their projects and the cast and crew are very tight-lipped about a film in production. Before visiting a Marvel set, the SHIELD-style Marvel security make you sign an NDA and take a photo on an iPad. Despite NDAs and embargoes, no one can be trusted and the stars of these films are often unsure of what they can and not say in on set interviews. Sometimes this can be frustrating, but other times it can be hilarious. While visiting the set of Captain Marvel...
