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.
