Marvel Studios Captain Marvel Now Available on Blu-Ray and DVD + Digital everywhere! Did you see the Marvel Studios film in theaters? It’s time to grab it and enjoy it in the privacy of your home. This is one that you’re going to have all the feelings. The girl power is ripe and we are all here for the ultimate superhero Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. The level of hype is through the roof, my friends! Thanks to Click Communications for sending the film for review as always, all opinions are my own. This has to be one of my favorite films of 2019.
BECOMING CAPTAIN MARVEL
If you know the comic book of Captain Marvel, you know it’s a male role. It was huge for Marvel Studios to cast Brie Larson as Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. She really took on a huge role as the first female hero with a self-titled film in the MCU. This is huge! Antman and The Wasp still had a guy in the name, so for Carol Danvers to be named in the title of the film is AWESOME! Little girls, as well as women, see the power and strength of Captain Marvel and Brie Larson did an amazing job in exuding this powerful female. You really get a good in depth look at how Carol Danvers becomes Captain Marvel.
WHAT I LIKED
There wasn’t much I didn’t like. One of the things I did like was a furry new character named Goose! She definitely stole a few scenes. If you are a cat lover, you will love this little flerken. You’ll get it! I also loved seeing a young Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. The relationship that grows between Fury and Carol is fantastic.
MY ISSUES WITH CAPTAIN MARVEL
Honestly, I didn’t have many, there were a few moments when Carol seemed almost bot-like but those were when she wasn’t sure who she was. But on another hand, my thoughts are if she shows too much emotion she’s not strong enough or couldn’t get the job done. Know what I mean? She’s not your smiley-cutesy superhuman hero, she’s a woman on a mission. So full on issues? I’d say none. It’s one of my favorite films of 2019.
OKAY FOR KIDS?
Yes, my kids are ages 7 and 12. While Ezra did squirm some in his seat after a while, he was able to keep it together. All of the fight scenes kept him engaged but when it came to scenes with more dialogue he wasn’t as into it. Would I take a child that is younger than 7, probably not? There was some language in the film, but for the most part, it was probably one of the most kid-friendly films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
END CREDIT EXTRAS
Please watch the end credits. As you know Marvel films have little sneaks during the end credits and being that you’ll be home and can fast forward the credits- you’ll be able to analyze the end credits. This has to be my most favorite about owning a Marvel film. As you can imagine the end credits help connect the Marvel films.

Set in the 1990s, “Captain Marvel” is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that introduces the MCU’s first stand-alone, female-franchise title character—Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel. When we first meet Danvers, she already possesses her superhero powers, having left her earthly life behind and become a member of an intergalactic elite Kree military team called Starforce, led by their enigmatic commander, Yon-Rogg. But after Danvers has trained and worked with the Starforce team, and become a valued member, she finds herself back on Earth with new questions about her past. While on Earth she quickly lands on the radar of Nick Fury, and they must work together against a formidable enemy in the form of the Skrulls—the notorious Marvel bad guys made even more dangerous by their shape-shifting abilities—and their leader, Talos, who is spearheading a Skrull invasion of Earth.
