Why We're Watching
All of the trailers we’ve seen so far for Captain Marvel have got MCU fans worried about Thanos’ safety in the next Avengers movie, since Brie Larson’s Carol Danvers is not only going to be Marvel’s first female superhero to have a solo movie, but her story is also going to be a prequel and setup for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. As layered and developed as the MCU is so far, the possible twists and angles that Captain Marvel might add have us holding our breath with anticipation and excitement. And the kicker, this origin story is set to be half action and half comedy – a hybrid like the superhero herself – and a formula that Marvel has all but perfected.
