'Captain Marvel' is the latest movie to be attacked by online trolls, and Rotten Tomatoes might make more changes to stop them

"Captain Marvel" is the latest blockbuster to be targeted by online trolls who are taking to Rotten Tomatoes and other review-aggregator sites to tank user scores. Rotten Tomatoes changed its policy recently so that users can't review movies prior to their release, but a representative told The Hollywood Reporter that the website could take further measures. These negative campaigns don't necessarily hurt a movie's box office, though, and "Captain Marvel" has already grossed $500 million world...

Abandoned ‘Captain Marvel’ Post-Credits Scene Almost Tied Back to ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Instead

After Avengers: Infinity War only gave us one credits scene, Captain Marvel returns to the Marvel Studios standard of having both a mid-credits scene and a post-credits scene. As we discussed last weekend, the mid-credits scene is a big set-up for Avengers: Endgame, and the post-credits scene is a fun little coda following the events of Captain Marvel. But directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden almost had an alternate Captain Marvel credits scene that tied back to Thor: Ragnarok. Beware of spoiler...

'Captain Marvel' directors say they got a great piece of advice from 'Black Panther' director Ryan Coogler

"Captain Marvel" directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck turned to "Black Panther" director Ryan Coogler when they needed to talk to someone about the process of making a movie for the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

How Stan Lee’s ‘Captain Marvel’ Cameo Changed After the Comic Legend’s Death

Last fall, we lost Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee when the creator of some of the world’s most famous superheroes passed away at age 95. But that wasn’t the last we’d see of Lee, because he had already shot cameos for some upcoming Marvel Studios productions, including this weekend’s Captain Marvel. However, that film’s scene featuring the comic legend’s cameo changed a little bit once Lee passed away, and it made the scene a little more touching. Find out about the Stan Lee Captain Marvel cameo...

'Captain Marvel' is a fun origin movie filled with '90s nostalgia, but it has flaws

"Captain Marvel" is the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe movie from Disney. Though the movie has a couple of dull spots, for the most part it's fun. A big standout is the unique way writer-directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck give the backstory of the Carol Danvers character.   “Captain Marvel” (in theaters Friday) is a lot of things: a buddy movie, a '90s nostalgic coming-of-age tale, a superhero origin story. This mix can be jarring at times, but the movie hits its stride when it sets its ow...

‘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...

Wednesday round-up

Briefly: A.O.
