CAPTAIN MARVEL Reactions: Brie Larson Is a Blast in This ’90s Space Adventure
We’ve been waiting more than a decade for the first female-driven Marvel film to hit screens, and the time is finally here! Critics were treated to a first look at Captain Marvel tonight, and it looks like we were right to be excited about this one: The reactions are glowing, with plenty of praise for the film’s stars, soundtrack, and effects.

Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, a U.S. Air Force fighter pilot who’s turned into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes. After the Los Angeles preview screening, critics flocked to Twitter to praise Larson’s history-making turn as the first solo female action hero to headline a film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But it sounds like Brie isn’t the only cast member who excels in the film. Ben Mendelsohn, who plays the villainous Talos, and Carol’s pet cat Goose are also major highlights.

Others were hyped on the film’s ’90s nostalgia, with what sounds like a totally rad soundtrack.

And, because this is a Marvel movie, it looks like we can expect some surprises.

Suffice it to say, we are utterly thrilled to see what the buzz is all about when Captain Marvel soars into theaters March 8.
