Unless I'm mistaken now that Ant Man and the Wasp is out and about in theaters, the Captain Marvel is the next Big Deal in the Marvel Universe. I feel like I need something else before we get to that. Unless the Captain Marvel is less universal than I'm thinking it's going to be.

Whup. Got ahead of myself there.

Ant Man and the Wasp is a lovely little romp. A fairly generous sorbet of local trouble to wash a little bit of that OH GOD EVERTHING IS GOING TO DIE out of your mouth before we jump back into it. Rudd is delightful. Evangeline Lily is p awesome. Michael Dougles is cantankerous. And Michael Pena is funny. You know, more of what you enjoyed about the first movie.

Nice. It was a nice fillum.

There's just the one mid-credits teaser to contend with this time.

As much as I'm enjoying everyone over here going apeshit for England in the World Cup - if you haven't heard, IT'S COMING HOME - I am OUTRAGED :madrant: that Ant Man and the Wasp has been delayed for a month because of the World Cup.

TOTAL RIPOFF.

Captain Marvel. No, not that one, the Marvel one.

The Marvel Captain Marvel is a weird property. The original dude is, uh, a dude and is otherwise fairly unremarkable. For that matter, the distaff counterpart then known as Ms Marvel wasn't any more popular. Both were kept in their own comics mostly to keep the copyrights in the Marvel stable.

At least until earlier this century. The Kree Captain Marvel died a death (allegedly but for real this time) and the once Ms Marvel eventually takes the name for herself. (Ms Marvel as a title is assumed by a new person, who is having a good success in the comics and will no doubt someday make it to the real big time.)

As such, there's no real singular through line or really solid identity for Captain Marvel - at least not as far as I can tell. Not like there is for the other Marvel Captain of America. Carol Danvers has been portrayed differently by different writers and with different motivations depending on the overarcing plot in which she appears.

So, it's almost a relief that Kevin Feige and the writers and directors of the MCU Marvel's Captain Marvel and Carol Danvers do a top to bottom rekajiggering of all of it. There's a lot of familiar stuff but thankfully the MCU Marvel's Captain Marvel is p much her own person not necessarily related to anyone else. And this is a very good thing.

Now then. After something like Infinity War the First and the anticipation for Infinity War the Second, Captain Marvel doesn't reach that level. Honestly, I don't think anything Marvel has done can match what that was about. But as a singular, relatively stand alone feature that had to drag you through a character's origin? Yeah, it's p good.
