Give me all the lady superhero movies, pls.  

Again, just like with the first trailer, I'm absolutely super hyped for the movie! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Real talk though, honestly, I just really love the look and overall feel of Captain Marvel. Aside from a few things, I know absolutely nothing about the character or her origin story so I'll be going into this rather blind. I really love Brie Larson, I think she's a fantastic actress and so far I like what we see in the trailers, and I think she'll do the the character justice. I've seen some comments about her lack of smiling (usually by douchebros who feel the need to comment about ~omg smile more~) or her higher pitched voice which is unusual from what we've normally seen when it comes to female superheroes that have a deeper, almost huskier voice to match their heroic persona. However, I quite like it, like a whole lot. It's kinda been revealed that the reason Carol Danvers isn't really smiling (aside from not having to, lbr) is because she is rather emotionally detached and this is a movie that will be about her learning about her past life on Earth. No, she doesn't look ~bored as some have claimed, but rather disconnected from humanity on Earth, which makes absolute sense given her backstory. So yeah, everything about Carol looks and sounds super dope.

Also, as a sidenote, the outfits? Her hair with the classic helmet? The special effects? Nick Fury? And Coulson to appear as seen in the previous trailer? This is gonna be good and I'm so here for it!

There was also the official teaser trailer for Avengers 4 (aptly titled Endgame) that was released yesterday, which is great. But in all honesty? I'm way more excited for Captain Marvel. It's weird, my superhero movie viewing habits have always been scattered and sporadic. I haven't really watched any of the Avengers movies aside from the first one, and aside from a select few, I haven't really been much of a MCU watcher, same with the DCEU. I do watch and love a lot of the Marvel shows on television and I'm emotionally invested in those particular arcs and plots, but not so much of the movie universe, which is rather strange. But I guess that's why I've always felt a slight disconnect from the MCU fandom in a way.

The Captain Marvel trailers look great. :-)

It really does! I am so hyped for it. I mean, it is the first MCU female superhero movie (finally) so I'm crossing my fingers that it'll be absolutely fantastic.

I know Captain Marvel from the Lego games. All I know is that she is very powerful. It makes sense to introduce her to the MCU at this point to save everyone.

The whole "she isn't smiling enough" thing is ridiculous. Neither do the vast majority of the male heroes! We don't know anything about her characters and there's nothing really happening that would make her laugh. Such a sexist discussion.

If you want to watch Avengers 4 after Captain Marvel (and I presume Carol having a big role in it), you should watch Avengers 3 first. You didn't miss much with Age of Ultron though which you are probably aware of by now lol

lol, I'm the same with the LEGO games too! ;D

It really is ridiculous, the fact that people (namely men) started complaining about how she wasn't smiling and considered her ~boring because of it is just stupid, but then again not surprising. I even saw people defending those kinds of comments saying that it wasn't about the "not smiling" but about how robotic she sounded making her seem cold and non-superhero-like...isn't really any better of an argument, tbh. Regardless, the whole thing is just idiotic anyway.

Oh, I already know what happens in those movies. You can't be on the Internet without knowing all the spoilers for the MCU, so even if I didn't watch it I know what happens in Infinity War with all the characters, who dies/disintegrates, etc. ;)

"I'm not going to fight your war, I'm going to end it" is such a great line! Already iconic. I want a heroine who decides she's not going to put up with imperialist claptrap and propaganda and be used as a pawn, and furthermore to put an end to a conflict over territory and dominion and all that nonsense that must be hurting people throughout the galaxies.

If I wasn't already excited for this movie, that line definitely would've gotten me super hyped. There is just such determination behind it, and you know what? I can't wait to see how her involvement is going to change the MCU, since this is the introduction to her character before she appears in the next Avengers movie. I'm just so ready to see what they have in store. :D

I think what I'm really going to love about Captain Marvel is how OP she is. One character who's stronger than all of the others throws the whole universe askew, and in the right hands, that can lead to some very interesting stories.
Renée: Agents of Shield. Skye.rogueslayer452 on December 9th, 2018 07:26 pm (UTC)
Seriously, I can't wait to see how her involvement is gonna change things for the future of the MCU. :D

And all those who are inevitably going to complain about the most powerful character when she's a woman who wouldn't have made the same complaints if she were a man can suck it.

I am definitely excited for Captain Marvel. I know next to nothing about her character, but like you said - the set up looks awesome! I am curious how she is going to fit in with the rest of the universe, though. She seems so powerful.
Renée: Arrow. Sara Lance.rogueslayer452 on December 10th, 2018 02:38 pm (UTC)
Seriously, I'm assuming she'll be appearing in the next Avengers movie so it makes me very damn curious to see her meeting up with the rest of the characters. Also, the possibility of her going up against Thanos? That would be very interesting, indeed....

Agreed! I can't wait! It looks amazing, she's a fantastic actress, the special effects are awesomeeeee, she's not being oversexualized, her backstory looks interesting and I too am going in pretty blind so I'm excited for a story I know nothing about!

I really like how practical the suit looks, and when she's not wearing the suit(s) she's just in everyday wear. Like, there's that promo pic of her wearing simple jeans, a leather jacket, a baseball cap and a NIN t-shirt, and I was like yes. Idk why, but that laidback look while still looking like she can kick your ass with her pinkie finger is just amazing. I seriously cannot wait for this movie.
