Watch Brie Larson & Samuel L. Jackson Sing Ariana Grande's ''7 Rings''

She asked actress Brie Larson, who plays the titular superhero, what she hoped kids like her would take from Captain Marvel. "I'm introverted, and for me having something that makes me feel good in these very public moments is imperative", she said.

The movie, which is set in the 1990s, follows the story of Carol Danvers (Larson), an interstellar superhero who teams up with a young Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) to combat an extraterrestrial threat.

Celebrating women in the military, single mothers and female mentors are among the many off-road excursions in Captain Marvel, all rarities for superhero blockbusters.

What happens: We're in the post-Infinity War days, as evidenced by a ten-figure "global missing" count on the wall of an Avengers facility.

Brie Larson stars in "Captain Marvel".

"There's nothing more risky for a warrior than anger", counsels Yon-Rogg, who is determined to squash every trace of Carol's remaining humanity. "That thing that we would go fight for, to the ends of the Earth - that could be our best friend".

What surprised me the most was that Samuel L. Jackson knew pretty much all the lyrics to "7 Rings" - at least a lot more than I knew.

Instead of a male love interest, the love displayed in the film centers mostly around female friendship and platonic love. You believe the friendship between Maria and Carol, how they identify one another as their chosen family.

That's not to say that a movie about a woman can't be inspirational to boys and men. A look could speak volumes in an instant and that gaze is present even if it doesn't speak to everyone.

Now, the studio is searching for an actor, between the ages 30-49, who "physically looks like a superhero" for a lead in the upcoming feature-length movie, That Hashtag Show reports. She fly. Photon blasts? When she goes into action, the characters and their readers know she has gone into action. There were a lot of pull-ups and push-ups, but that wasn't all for Captain Marvel. Utterly empowering and inspiring.

Jackson, Gregg, and Mendelsohn give fantastic turns as supporting cast members.

At the start of the film, answering to the name Vers, she is not yet powerful enough in martial arts sessions to overcome her condescending boss, Yon-Rogg (a miscast Jude Law).

The music swells with heroic objective.

In fairness, Marvel certainly hasn't spared any expense in introducing Carol to the universe. In a February 2019 interview with Marie Claire, Larson said she deliberately chose a black female journalist with cerebral palsy to interview her.

The film really only has a few flaws. The smaller throwaway moments provide the greatest payoff, such as Fury painstakingly reproducing a jailor's fingerprint to escape his cell only to have Carol casually blast a hole in the door with her fiery fist.

We first meet our heroine as a warrior-in-training, part of an elite squad of inter-galactic heroes battling shape-shifting aliens on various planets. The first will probably get you even more excited about Avengers: Endgame than you already are, and the second is more of a humorous bookend to the film. "And I've never been more excited to take her to anything, ever".

Film franchises rarely make it past a sequel or two before they burn out, let alone 20 films, but that's exactly how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come since Iron Man debuted back in 2008.

There is no point in trying to explain the finer details of the plot here, and I'm certainly not going to pretend like I understood any of it.
