Captain Marvel tells an interesting story that not-only fits comfortably within the MCU, but provides a few welcome, surprising twists. Speaking of which, can we give another tip-of-the-hat to Ben Mendelsohn, once-again stealing every scene he’s in?
Based on the creation of CC Beck in 1939, Shazam features the origin and adventures of Billy Batson, who with the utterance of a magic word, transforms into a super powerful adult version of himself!
The Kree has a Supreme Intelligence that all Kree meet sparingly and seems to rule all.
Momoa’s personality goes very far to rising above the sub par acting, but the movie goes on for way too long (much like this review!) it throws in everything from Ocean Master, Black Manta, The Trench, The Lost World, Atlantean history, and nearly anything anyone ever thought was cool about Aquaman (Yes he even rides a seahorse!)
Miles Morales becomes the Spider-Man of his reality and meets his counterparts from other dimensions to stop a threat to all reality.
The film begins in an almost fairytale fashion, with the story of how Aquaman’s mum, a queen of Atlantis, and his dad, a lowly lighthouse keeper came to fall in love and have a little aqua-sprog named Arthur.
