Captain Marvel star Clark Gregg is coming to the defense of his co-star Brie Larson against trolls who have attacked Marvel's first female-led superhero film and sabotage the film's user rating on Rotten Tomatoes. After reading mixed reviews about the film, and not being a die-hard superhero movie fanatic, I wasn't quite sure what to expect.
"Captain Marvel" arrives almost a year after the cliffhanger ending to "Avengers: Infinity War", which teased that the heroine is the most powerful superhero and the only one who could take on villain Thanos. Although it comes as no surprise, given that trade analysts had predicted that the movie will open well, we're just jumping with joy that the movie has lived up and surpassed expectations.
Brie Larson plays Carol Danvers, an Air Force test pilot turned alien superhero who has forgotten her past and struggles with piecing it together. As pieces of her memory flashback, movie-goers who grew up in the '80s and '90s will identify with and enjoy the music and scenery.
Brie stressed that the new superhero movie can be enjoyed without even considering the issue of diversity.

"And those are the moments, the defining moments of her character, where she doesn't lay down, she gets back up. I didn't expect some of the twists and turns the storyline took". "How, when I experience that every day?'space" That's something that should have been represented from centuries ago and it's just really special.
With Anna Boden co-directing the film with her Mississippi Grind comrade Ryan Fleck, Captain Marvel also marks the first woman to co-direct a Marvel film. She will also feature in "Avengers: Endgame', set for a release on April 26, helping the superheroes battle the mighty villain Thanos".
"She definitely pushed us higher, further, faster", said Disney distribution chief Cathleen Taff.
Some fans claimed Larson's hero didn't smile enough, a charge she responded to with doctored pictures of previous male Marvel superheroes with awkwardly full grins.
