Story : With Captain Marvel, the home of the Avengers has put a huge target on its back. It must prove itself as the first solo Marvel film centred on a female superhero lest it become an excuse for (male) executives to not greenlight more women-led adventures. For what it’s worth, though, the preceding chapter — Ant-Man and the Wasp — already gave us a female superhero in the title. And having taken so long — nearly 11 years and 20 previous films in the unstoppable Marvel Cinematic Universe — it must also contend with the impressive shadow that sprung from the critical and commercial success of rival DC Comics’ first solo female chapter, Wonder Woman, which is still the sole redeeming gem of Warner Bros.’ attempt to copy the Marvel Studios model.
It’s almost impossible for any superhero film to live up to those demands, especially one that makes the curious choices that Captain Marveldoes. For one, the title character — played by Brie Larson, Oscar-winner on Room — doesn’t even know her real name let alone who she is, owing to the onset of amnesia brought on by a traumatic incident.
