The first Captain Marvel film may have had its detractors, but personally I really enjoyed the first one. I honestly believe that a lot of the hate thrown at this movie is fueled by the misogyny of a relatively small population of the audience. I really liked Brie Larson in the role of Carol Danvers and the sequel, titled The Marvels, will see the inclusion of some interesting characters like Monica Rambeau from WandaVision and Kamala Khan from Ms. Marvel. All three of these characters are connected in very different, but very important way. While I’m sure Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel will be the main focus of the film, it makes a lot of sense to bring these characters together for something closer to an ensemble than a straight up Captain Marvel 2. So I’m definitely looking forward to the next film when it hits theaters later this year.
The Marvels was originally supposed to premiere in late July, but was recently pushed back to November 10. This seems to be an effort on the part of Marvel Studios to spread their films out a bit more. I think they realized that, over the past couple of years, they’ve oversaturated the market a little. So we’re going to start seeing less MCU Disney+ shows premiering as well as a longer amount of time between new film releases. Which I think is a really good idea. In fact, it’s probably one of the best moves Marvel Studios could make right now. As the old saying goes, absence makes the heart grow fonder. In the meantime, Marvel has debuted a very cool, new teaser poster for The Marvels. I like the inclusion of the three main characters and how it evokes the very cool teaser poster for the first Captain Marvel movie. Check it out…

This week on The World’s Best Podcast, guest co-host Mike Cole and I dive right into the Season Finale of WandaVision! How’d the story wrap up? What did we think of the series in general? & What does this mean for the future of the characters and The MCU, after one of Marvel’s most wildly unique and compelling stories yet?
One of the best moments in the finale, is during the fight between the 2 Visions. What begins as a pretty cool physical confrontation, is ultimately resolved when “our” Vision proposes a thought experimental his double (specifically, The Ship of Theseus). This reveals to Vision’s white, doppelgänger, the flawed and conflicting nature of his programming. I loved this scene because it’s a clever way to subvert the superhero story troupe of “The Final Battle”, which was in keeping with the unique nature of the series. I didn’t know at the time, but this was taken straight out of one of a recent Avengers comics! Take a look…

The MCU’s Phase III has been, so far, Marvel’s best set of films yet. Phase III began with Captain America: Civil War and will wrap up with this April’s Avengers: Endgame. All of Marvel’s movies have been, at the very least, solid & fun at their worst and masterpieces at the best. The current renaissance of Mavel’s flicks has largely been the result of the creation of Marvel Studios, an independent movie studio that produces and has complete control over creative choices. Kevin Fiege, the head of Marvel Studios, has bee a huge part of the MCU’s success. Disney bought Marvel a few years ago, but Marvel Studios still remains independent and free to produce films in anyway they see fit.
Don’t get me wrong there are some great movies here, some of the best in Phases I & II include:
Captain America: The First Avenger
Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Guadians of The Galaxy
but they don’t compared to the level of quality and experimentation that we saw in Phase III:
Capain America: Civil War
Guardians of The Galaxy Vol.2
Avengers: Infinity War
Ant-Man & The Wasp
That a pretty fucking great set of movies in Phase III which culminates in Endgame. Phase IV starts with Spider-Man: Far From Home FYI.
I’m happy to say that Phases III has not disappointed us with Captain Marvel. This episode of The World’s Best Podcast is all about Captain Marvel.
