March 8th's release of 'Captain Marvel' can't come quick enough. That is, if these early press reviews are to be believed.
Brie Larson takes on the titular role of Captain Marvel on the big screen in a couple of week's time. An early press screening of the upcoming Marvel flick took place recently, and forget about the rumours you've been hearing, because it sounds like one epic superhero ride.
Unfortunately, the past number of days has seen sexist online haters, create a lot of negative buzz surrounding Larson's new release. Although it hasn't been confirmed, it's believed that these keyboard warriors are all in their late 40's, still live in their parents' basement, and are afraid of amazing women finally getting their own screen time.
We need less hate, and more love online please. Here's a roundup of reviews for Marvel's pre-Thanos showdown, 'Captain Marvel.'
It's "Unlike any other Marvel movie."
#CaptainMarvel has a great ‘90s sci-fi vibe w/ a tone unlike any other Marvel movie, really. It’s retro & trippy, mysterious & dorky. It’s funny in surprising places & badass in all the right places. It remains entertaining because it’s always changing. It’s got the right stuff pic.twitter.com/o7AvqYY63x

There's a lot of love for Ben Mendelsohn, who plays shape-shifting Skull leader, Talos. Plus... the cat?
#CaptainMarvel is a welcome addition to the #MCU. The movie is really well done with some great moments. #benmendelsohn steals almost every scene he's in. @brielarson literally shines in the role. So ready for #AvengersEndGame pic.twitter.com/GET0socRjl

#CaptainMarvel is a great origin story. Brie’s buddy cop chemistry with @SamuelLJackson is so much fun and her relationship with Lashana Lynch is the real heart of it. Ben Mendelsohn and the cat both steal the show.

The future of the MCU gets even brighter adding #CaptainMarvel to the mix. Really fell for @brielarson’s sass, strength & energy in the role. Same with @LashanaLynch too! Ben Mendelsohn is A+ casting as Talos. And yes, Goose is a scene stealer. 2nd viewing can’t come soon enough.

#CaptainMarvel is RADICAL! An awesome 90s period piece & total recalibration of the MCU as we know it! From the brief Winter Soldier cameo to the six full episodes of Friends that play consecutively through a majority of the film’s runtime, this might be my favorite MCU flick yet

There are pre and post-credits scenes...
Captain Marvel is an effective Avengers prequel in some ways akin to the 1st Captain America movie. It’s pro-woman without being overdone with pre and post credit scenes that made me tear up and gave me goosebumps respectively pic.twitter.com/or2Oj7CdRV

"Larson is awesome."
Captain Marvel is a blast! Has some cool surprises that I definitely didn't see coming, and the mystery/origin it weaves is engaging and fun. Brie Larson is awesome, and makes a fantastic first step into the MCU #CaptainMarvel pic.twitter.com/oqrRtgDQrp

We'll take "a little wobbly" over a lot of other superhero-related flicks from the past few years.
Really loved #CaptainMarvel. It’s a little wobbly at times but only because it’s so ambitious. It’s beautifully constructed, hilarious and offers tons of surprises. @brielarson obviously rules but Ben Mendelsohn is the surprise MVP. pic.twitter.com/yQLQGl2Yt0

#CaptainMarvel is pure joy. I cannot wait for the generation of little girls who will grow up with Carol Danvers as a hero.

We all have that stubborn, witty 90's kid inside all of us.

There's even a Stan Lee nod.

Put simply -
#CaptainMarvel: Well, Thanos is fucked.

Larson even liked the Captain Marvel fan page tweet.

And in response to the hate the movie has pre-maturely been receiving, fans are ready to take down the spammers.
