In Captain Marvel’s first few weeks at the box office, it has performed incredibly well, grossing over $800 million worldwide. Generally, the reviews from the critics reflect its success, but some YouTube channels disagree. Criticizing the movie for its feminist motives, some believed that a radical agenda was ruining Marvel’s movie. In reality, it had more to do with Israel and Palestine.
I, like so many comic book fans, had already known for over a month what my plans for last weekend were going to be. Since the unexpected success of Ironman from which the unprecedented and extremely successful Marvel Cinematic Universe was born, I knew that every opening weekend I would be spending my Friday night in a movie theater. Last weekend it was the premiere of Captain Marvel, and in the months leading up to it, I was quite excited. The trailers were fun, she’s an awesome superhero with an interesting backstory, and seeing Nick Fury with two eyes was reason enough to watch the movie to see if I could learn how he loses his eye. Yet, this was different, especially considering the statements of actress Brie Larson before the release of the movie.
