Captain Marvel Screening: Truly Marvel-ous!

Excited to be invited to a screening of Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson, Jude Law as Yon-Rogg and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury.

Julien and I braved the theater ready for cinematic adventure. I had tried to avoid the chirping of Captain Marvel female-super-hero bashing that was in the air, because this movie was ”Awesome,” says 8 yr old Julien man-child.

His favorite scene was when the lead male antagonist, Yon-Rogg, played by Jude Law says to Captain Marvel, ”Fight me. No powers!” Danvers quickly demonstrates that she doesn't need to prove herself to anyone, especially him. A beautiful lesson that was cleverly displayed on screen.

We have plenty of strong female characters to go-around, they ever encircle the main and supporting heroines who also don't take no for an answer, nor give up easily.

Danvers, Captain Marvel, has a best friend while serving in the United States Air Force named Maria Rambeau played by Lashana Lynch who is a strong single Mom of a beautiful intelligent precocious teen daughter. We see the daughter as a wonderful youth role model. The beauty of their mother-daughter friendship is something we should all emulate.

No damsels in distress needing saving in this film. Female empowerment and domination rein! ”Who runs the world? Girls!” -Sung in my best Beyonce empowered inner voice.

Marvel Studios presents, the highly anticipated and very controversial “Captain Marvel,” the third installment in the “Avengers” franchise and 19th Marvel Studios film to date. The release also marks the 10-year anniversary of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which began with the release of “Iron Man” in 2008.
