And Brie Larson was certainly feeling strong as she rocked a bold power suit on the way into Good Morning America on Wednesday in NY.

In this regard, it is depressingly unsurprising that a sexist campaign that has been waged to hate on this movie by all-too-numerous anonymous internet users (as well at least one brazen Hollywood actor). Together with their new friends at S.H.E.I.L.D and some unlikely allies, they form what would become the seeds of Nick Fury's big idea when the fate of all kinds is on the line. In addition to allowing the filmmaking team of Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (2006's Half Nelson) to wax nostalgic about the age of Blockbuster Video, Rock the Vote and the Altavista search engine, this means the film takes place some 15 years before Tony Stark first took flight as Iron Man. The answers eventually pile up, and the film's weight finally begins to reveal itself. The source of these dreams becomes clear after Vers crash-lands into a Blockbuster Video back on Earth: Vers is really Air Force pilot Carol Danvers, and the dreams are memories from a former life, which ended when a 1989 plane crash left her with superpowers, and the Kree chose to rescue her and enlist her into their ranks. Lynch said that the characters "found power wherever they find connections". And she'll have to attempt to give a successful critical and box office riposte to a freaky online campaign against the film that took off when Larson made comments about a lack of diversity in the Hollywood press, enraging a large number of keyboard warriors in the process. "She's sarcastic ... a little bit of a mean girl". Instead, of course, a rather wet and slimy Tesseract it hacked up. (She left Earth in 1989 so it's feasible one of the last things she saw was Bruce Willis' mug smirking it up in the Moonlighting finale.) To be clear, she's an entertaining presence, but the film's most powerful moments are steered by other characters. His motivations and antics mark him as one of the MCU's more interesting and charismatic villains, and Mendelsohn's performance nails the character with a balance of relaxed humor and desperate intensity.

Valve Removes Rape Day From Steam With Vague, Nonsensical Statement
According to Valve's Erik Johnson, "Over the past week you may have heard about a game called " Rape Day " coming soon to Steam". Users were not able to pre-purchase the game, but they could add it to the wishlist while Steam completed their content review.


Captain Marvel is nearly upon us and soon fans around the world will get to see for themselves just how powerful the character is and what she might be able to do in the battle against Thanos in Avengers: Endgame.

Screen Daily's Tim Grierson expresses similar reservations, calling the film "fun and breezy but also a tad familiar" and its action sequences "sturdy but unspectacular". "Fury did", Widow replies and says she wants to know who is on the other end of that thing.

Sarah's review of Captain Marvel will go up tomorrow.

Captain Marvel is such a welcome and appealing addition to the Marvel universe that I wish she could be added, retroactively, to all of the extant "Avengers" movies (one of the extra scenes suggests I'm not the only one).

'All Black People Do Not Look Alike'
Only problem is, that wasn't King who interviewed Smollett . "I never thought that he was going to hurt me or hit me", she added. Gayle King is the talk of the town right now since she's being praised for her chill composure during her interview with R.


Films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe have made an industry out of post-credit scenes. Captain Marvel (Brie Larson, a best actress Oscar victor for 2015's "Room"), also known as Ver and/or Carol Danvers, spends much of the movie trying to regain her memory so she can figure out how she ended up on the planet of Hala, and with superpowers to boot.
