I hadn't seen the poster, so I googled it to see said poster, and this came up - https://www.cnet.com...eally-an-alien/
I am, as I'm sure you've already guessed, 110% here for Captain Cat Lady (and wouldn't be surprised if all cats are really Flerkens).
I'm someone who hasn't read comics in forever, and the only (Marvel) Captain Marvel I knew of is long dead, and hadn't realized Ms Marvel was renamed Captain Marvel until the MCU announced making this movie a couple years ago. Even then, the only two things I knew about MS/Captain Marvel was a) she had her powers stolen from Rogue in the 1990s Xmen cartoon and b) she is basically a female Superman with similar powers. I don't know anything about Bree Larson, nor do I care to look it up. Maybe I will catch this movie when it comes to Netflix like I do for most of the other single hero-centric movies, because when it comes to the MCU, the only ones I care to see in the theater are the Avengers movies.
I just have to say I don't understand all this controversy, and it seems to me kind of not that big a deal. I don't know for sure, but I think that is pretty much how most of the people awaiting this film or the next Avengers film feels about the topic.
I haven't seen the movie, but probably will wait until video. Unless the buzz is one should see it before End Game.
But according to Rotten Tomatoes, Critics love it at 81%, and audience mostly is panning it at 35% (as of this writing, at about 2PM Pacific).
I am sure this will be another one of those movies that defenders are going to say it's a bunch of MGTOW woman-hater white dudes and Russian bots skewing the reviews, whereas the haters are going to call it a crap movie and blame Brie Larson's outbursts. The truth will probably be either somewhere between, or none of it, and it will be a decent popcorn flick, but not the greatest MCU EVAR, either.
All I do know is I am weary of all this political debate over this movie. I wish there were a way we could just enjoy a movie without the innerwebs ruining it.
It's definitely getting hammered by trolls in terms of audience reviews considering it's got more reviews than Infinity War at the moment (not even a day after release) but in terms of standard fanbase, it sounds like it's not what it was hyped to be and pretty average....hoping to see it tomorrow so will make my own mind up then. Honestly I enjoy Marvel movies these days for the purist of escapism so I'm keen to see it.
