    You realise 'they' are still talking about the same quote she made that there wasn't enough representation amongst critics? She hasn't said anything new.

    Yup

    The idiots will keep bringing it up for years.

    If that's the worst they can find against her then she's doing pretty well:p

    Sorry mate, but starring in your own MCU movie and making over a billion and then being a small (but crucial) part in the (likely) biggest blockbuster of all time is a massive fail.

    If only she had embraced white-male incels more, imagine how successful she could have been....

    Two billion? Bought out cinemas? Can I have some of what he's smoking? Even adjusted for inflation only Black Panther and the Avengers films have, without checking, made more than a billion?

    And Captain America: Civil War but that was basically an Avengers movie minus Thor and Hulk.

    I enjoyed Captain Marvel and thought Brie Larson was fine in it but you have to admit, a large part of the success is down to the timing. The credits scene from Infinity War and Endgame being released just a few weeks after are massive factors which you can't ignore. :p

    I doubt i'd have watched it at the cinema if i'd had the chance to catch it on DVD before Endgame came out, the timing absolutely has a factor as you've said.

    However i'm glad I did as I enjoyed it much more than i was expecting.

    I put this in with the same bracket as Blank Panther; it was ok but I wouldn't go out my way to watch it again.

    I thought Captain Marvel was an okay Marvel film, I didn't care much for Cap Marvel as a character which was more down to writing/dialog than Brie herself but the film overall wasn't bad

    I do wonder though, how many would have actually gone to watch the movie if there wasn't that end credit scene with the pager hinting at her in Infinity War

    Itching to see Endgame, so went to see this last night. I know you don't HAVE to watch it first, but I wanted to.

    Heard it was crap, but I enjoyed it.

    Great film, anyone saying it was crap either doesn't watch marvel films or doesn't like these sorts of films.

    And, it's done well, it's still being showed in my local cinema, so what's that? Like a month+ at the cinema now?

    It was a crap film.

    Only watched it in the cinema because I was desperate to see Endgame and this wasn't popping up on torrents anywhere.
