Brie Larson Wants “Captain Marvel” To Stand On Its Own Merits

We are days away from the release of “Captain Marvel”, and there has been plenty of hype happening in the past few weeks. We even had a live stream with Goose the cat! Last night, the Captain herself, Brie Larson, hit up a late night talk show where she discussed her feelings about how she wanted viewers to approach the movie.

Larson appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel show to promote Captain Marvel, and was asked about her thoughts on the importance of being the first female-led Marvel movie. Her response downplayed the feminist angle, and focused more on how she wanted the movie to be viewed like any other MCU flick.

Check out the video below, with the transcript following that:

“I don’t know how it’s any different. To be honest, I don’t want it to feel different,” Larson explained. “I’m kind of over the ‘First female blah blah blah,’ and ‘Wow, maybe women can actually do the same things that dudes can do – what a crazy concept!’

“I feel like the more we talk about it, the more we perpetuate the myth that it’s an impossible task. No, if it wasn’t like that before, it’s because it was wrong. That was just wrong. Now we’re just doing what’s natural.

“It’ll be what it is, and I think there’s gonna be lot there for people to digest and feel,” Larson continued. “And hopefully it’ll be the movie that you want to revisit again and again, and as life goes on, it’ll have more to it. I just want to make art that lasts. I want to make art that you grow with. That’s all.”

This sounds a bit like a shift in how she has approached promoting the movie. Back in February, Larson told Marie Claire UK that she has taken steps to make sure the movie’s press junket is not “overwhelmingly white male.” This may be part of what led to the Rotten Tomatoes backlash, although most likely that same reaction would have happened even if she said nothing .

We look forward to the first female-led Marvel movie and hope it paves the way for more, like the Black Widow movie or maybe Ms Marvel eventually. Let’s reserve judgment for when the movie is actually in theaters later this week, and let’s all do our best to look at it with no predetermined biases. More comic book movies are a win for everyone, and if you think “forced diversity” is ruining entertainment, I suggest investing in a time machine to live out your days in the 50’s.

“Captain Marvel” hits US theaters on March 8.

Goose The Cat Of “Captain Marvel” Surprised The Internet With His Own Live stream

“Captain Marvel” may be hitting theaters soon, but the real star of the movie is Goose the cat.

As part of a promotion leading up to the impending release of Captain Marvel, Marvel Studios surprised us with this live stream of Goose the cat doing… well, cat stuff. He chases things, he naps, and he even gets some scratches from surprise guest Samuel L. Jackson.

Check out the riveting video below:

The name of this cat is Reggie, and he along with three other felines played the role of Goose throughout the movie.

Did Marvel Remove A Character from “Avengers: Endgame” Teaser Trailer?

During The Superbowl, we saw a brand new teaser for the upcoming Infinity War sequel, “Avengers: Endgame”. The video showed us a little more about the plot, as well as the survivors of “the finger snap”, and what comes next. But something seemed a little bit off in the trailer.

The above screen-grab shows our heroes walking towards something mysterious in the sky. The only thing is, it sure looks like there is an empty space on the right between Bruce Banner and Rhodey. It would appear that something, or someone, was removed from the scene. Who could it be and why?

Want to see what the Avengers look like in their superhero costumers from the new movie? Check it out at this link here!

This isn’t the first time Marvel has fiddled with a trailer, like when they had The Incredible Hulk in the Wakanda Battle from Infinity War, despite him not being there as the green giant, but instead in a Hulkbuster suit.

CBR did a whole video about it, which you can watch below:

What’s your theory on this scene? Is someone missing, or is just poor direction – or a bunch of conspiracy theorists reading too much into nothing?

“Avengers: Endgame” arrives in US theaters on April 26.

First Look At “Avengers: Endgame” Costumes – Thanks To Popcorn Maker

“Avengers: Endgame” is fast approaching, and there are still many mysteries abound. Sure, we saw some new footage during The Super Bowl, but it still left us with many questions. One of the biggest has been how will the survivors of The Finger Snap look. Today, we have answers thanks to an unlikely source.

The image was released today on popcorn maker Orville Redenbacher’s website as part of a promotion that ties in with the upcoming Marvel Studios film. The post was seemingly pulled down not long after, as this was likely not meant to be revealed just yet.

Here is how the remaining members of the team will look in the new movie:

There had been some rumors of a black-costumed Hulk, so now we have proof of that. We are also getting a better look at the Ronin outfit, as well as the changes to Captain America, Black Widow, Thor, and Iron Man. Overall, it’s nothing too drastic at first look, but there are clearly some nuanced differences with the majority of these looks for the familiar super heroes.

Directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, Avengers: Endgame will star Robert Downey Jr., Josh Brolin, Mark Ruffalo, Tom Hiddleston, Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Olsen, Chadwick Boseman, Sebastian Stan, Benedict Cumberbatch, Paul Bettany, Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders, Benedict Wong, Zoe Saldana, Karen Gillan, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Scarlett Johansson, Tom Holland and Anthony Mackie.

Look out for it in US theaters on April 26. Hopefully the popcorn served there will not be made with the blood and guts of former Orville Redenbacher employees.

Mezco Heads For The Stars With New One:12 Captain Marvel figure

We are not too far away from NY Toy Fair 2019, but Mezco has been going to town with their pre-event reveals. We already saw their new Living Dead Doll based on Jack Nicholson’s Jack Torrance from “The Shining”, and now we have this very exciting One:12 figure joining the fray!

Today via their mailing list, Mezco Toyz previewed their newest six-inch figure – Captain Marvel! Based on Brie Larson’s version of her in the upcoming movie of the same name, we don’t have any other details to go on yet other than this photo:

“When former U.S Air Force fighter pilot turned superhero Captain Marvel joins Starforce, she must return to Earth which is now in the crossfires of two alien races.”

Now we just have to wait another two weeks for NY Toy Fair to happen so we can see all of the new One:12 figures coming from Mezco in the near future. I am also curious if they will have a Brie Larson head to go with this.

Of course, my big dream is a new Nick Fury figure with Samuel L. Jackson’s face and two swappable heads – one with eyepatch and one without.

Stay tuned for our Toy Fair coverage to see all of the reveals!

NECA also revealed a new TMNT figure today, an 18-inch version of The Shredder from the 1990 movie!
