I had doubts about casting Brie Larson in this role but who am I to question the MCU when they continue to knock it out of the park with their casting choices?

I cringed when they cast Paul Rudd as Ant-Man but he killed it. I wasn't happy Mark Ruffalo replaced Edward Norton but he's fit in beautifully with the ensemble cast. Lots of people said Chris Evans would make a terrible Captain America because he was already known to Marvel fans as the Human Torch but I can't imagine anyone else in that role after he retires.

Looks promising. I'm curious as to who the main villain is going to be.

Underwhelming. It’s only a trailer but just a tick up from Netflix Original status.

Scuse me! THIS is the Captain Marvel I remember. I am not a sexist by any stretch of the imagination but I just can't picture Captain Marvel as a female. I think a more appropriate revision would be MARVEL GIRL

^Apparently, Fawcett Comics' Captain Marvel (aka Shazam) was more popular than Superman in the '40s, but they stopped publishing in the '60s. Marvel Comics trademarked the name the '60s and by the time DC Comics licensed the Fawcett characters in '72, they couldn't use the name.

Btw a Shazam movie is on the way: [Trailer]

I feel you on Netflix original stuff...those get churned out faster than mcmuffins at 7:45am, except without the redeeming quality of a mcmuffin.

McMuffin Redemption.

Now there’s a trailer I can rally around.

According to IMDb credits it will likely be (Dr.) Minn Erva, a Kree scientist who'll have similar powers to Captain Marvel. As seen in the trailer, the Skrulls will also be among the villains.

Just as Iron Man was the launching pad leading up to The Avengers and that movie was the launching pad leading up to Infinity War, Captain Marvel could be the launching pad leading up to Secret Invasion. It would be a great way to transition the recently acquired Fantastic Four into the MCU since they have a long history with the Skrulls.
