I really wasn't sure what to expect from Captain Marvel. If it wasn't for the final shot of Avengers Infinity War where Fury sends a destressed signal to Captain Marvel, this movie wouldn't really even be something I'd be looking for. It is what it is. As for the movie, I liked it. Not perfect by any stretched and is not in the same league as some of the other Marvel flicks that have come out lately. But as a "stand alone" origin story, they deliver and hit all the spots they need to hit. The start of the movie is a bit slow for my taste. But once Carol Danvers crash lands on Earth (very, veeeeeery similar to Superman's arrival), the flick finds its footing and things pick up quite a bit. I won't bore you with the plot details as it's too extensive to write here and make sense of it all for those that have not bee paying attention in previous Marvel movies.

As for Captain Marvel, I mention that it's her Origin Story, but it's also an Origin Story for Nick Fury as well and to some extent Agent Coulson, although he is not featured enough in the movie to call it the same for him. The De-aging technology they are now using in Hollywood has come a long way and it's getting better each time. Seeing both Sam Jackson and Clark Gregg is just mind blowing to see. You really can't tell anymore because they have gotten to the point of refinement that those early versions of the tech are now long gone.

There are some standout spots in the film that are worth talking about. First off....Stan Lee. Loved the opening MARVEL Logo that kicks off all the films. Instead of showing all the characters in the MCU, they went with an all-out Tribute for the man. And for his cameo, the set up had me howling as we see Stan reading a script for Mallrats. Remember, Captain Marvel is set in the 90's, music, fashion and everything that comes with it...including when Mallrats. So the cameo was pretty clear-cut. But if it needs to be explained for those that don't get the Easter Egg. It's Stan reading for his eventual appearance in the movie. I gotta see what Kevin Smith thinks of this. I'm sure he has a lot to say on the matter. There are plenty of these kinds of Easter Eggs in the movie. You're just gonna have to check it out for yourself. Worth a Rent for sure.

Kevin Smith Reacts to Stan Lee's Cameo in Captain Marvel

I'm so glad that I didn't know about Stan's cameo until it unfolded as it did. Wish Kevin could have had the same experience too. Would have been great if someone had videotaped him so we could have some footage to go along with his reaction. But him talking about it is just as good though.
