Marvel, the big name in American film industry never forgets to attract the eyes of the movie lovers. This production company has produced numerous blockbuster movies from the beginning. Their films contain all the thrills, action, romance, sci-fi stories with different settings and great actors. Captain Marvel (2019) has been one of these successful creations. People around the world held their nerves to see this sci-fi action genre movie.
This movie is based on the character, Carol Danvers mentioned in Marvel Comics. Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) brings a female actress as the superhero for the first time in this movie. Even the co-director and writer of this was a female person. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has distributed this film and gained popularity to provide the audience such an original, exciting, eventful movie. It’s a break to produce male hero based movies.
Brie Larson, the Oscar-winner actress, takes part as the protagonist, Carol Danvers in this film. She has proved that how a woman can be the dominant character in a big commercial movie. Black Panther, Guardians of the Galaxy, Doctor Strange of MCU brought a lot of revenues which contain male heroes as the protagonist. But MCU thought to change the vision through a comic character. Brie is the game-changer who knows how to represent a superhero with superb physique and characteristics.
The settings of the movie is the mid-1990s. When we watch Captain Marvel, the feeling of the film is like it was made during that time depending on emotions, technical elements and implementation of the old thoughts. The period nostalgia alongside the taste of female prowess are the keys to let us watch the movie. The story begins with citizens (Vers) of the Kree Empire’s capital Hala getting affected by amnesia and repetitive nightmares. This amnesia involves an older woman. As Carol is a superhero, she supposedly has supernatural power. But she doesn’t know how to control it. After getting proper mentorship and training from Yon-Rogg, she becomes able to use the power properly.
The Vers gets captured by the group of Skrulls, alien shapeshifters. The leader of the Skrulls, Talos, sends some of the Skrulls to the Earth to capture Carol where she escaped. The Earth’s S.H.I.E.L.D agent Nick Fury and Phil Coulson gets attention to her. Skrulls interrupt them during one of their criminal investigations.
We can see different disguises or shapeshifters into humans by the Skrulls in these moments. However, Carol finds a crystal which contained her extracted memories.
Then the story gets a booster. Vers and Fury go to the Project Pegasus installation area at a U.S. Air Force base. There we come to know Dr. Wendy Lawson is that specific woman who arrived earlier in Vers’s nightmares. She built a light-speed engine and needed to test it. Vers or Carol dies in 1989 to check the engine.S.H.I.E.L.D gets information of the place where the incident happened while Keller (Talos) brings some disguised Skrull to the spot. Fury gets suspicious and helps the superhero to escape in a cargo jet.
In Louisiana, Carol gets identification as she is that Vers from the information of Maria Rambeau. Talos appears at the spot without any arms. This is the scene we get goosebumps as Talos tells a surprising story. He explains that Skrulls are not the attackers; instead they are refugees searching for a new place to stay. He also mentions that Lawson was the Mar-Vell. Lawson was a renegade Kree Scientist. A recovered recording of him shuffles the memories of Danvers plane crash.
Yon-Rogg is the killer of Lawson. We can’t even think like this if we consider the beginning of the movie. During the crash, Carol absorbed all the energy from the explosion. She got powers but had become a patient of memory loss.
Starforce captures the heroine and interfaces her with Yon-Rogg. Fury retrieves Goose who swallows the Tesseract. It’s the power source of Lawson’s particular engine. Fury loses one of his eyes by the Goose (Flerken, the alien) while capturing it. This time, Yon-Rogg was sent back to Hala. Then, the Vers takes Skrulls with her in search of new land. Thus, Fury gets inspiration to find more superheroes like Carol Danvers. He drafts a brand new initiative using her Air Force call sign, “Avenger”.
If you watch the movie, you will see more exciting things without taking a break. This movie isn’t the best, but it’s full of actions, uses of technologies and sci-fi ideologies. Critics have given good feedback upon this Captain Marvel. The acting and sequences of events are penned perfectly. You will love to observe each event.
