I actually set this post up a couple of weeks ago after I finally watched Captain Marvel but didn’t post it. Not sure why maybe I just thought it wasn’t complete as Spiderman: Far From Home had not been released as yet and that was the true end of this phase of Marvel Movies. I saw the movie over the weekend and though I did enjoy it and it rated quite high on the below list I thought it was a lot of bang but no substance but then a few of the Marvel movies were that way. I still feel no connection with Spiderman but Tom Holland is just so likable and earnest as the character that I enjoy watching him and the movies.
Now a little review I guess of the other two Marvel movies that have been released this year. I give Captain Marvel a solid meh. I had issues getting into the movie and it wasn’t until she arrived on Earth that I understood what was going on. I also didn’t find her likable at all and I guess for a hero to be a hero you have to find something about them that you find admirable and with her there was nothing.
Avengers: Endgame was a fitting end for Iron Man, Captain America and Black Widow. It was a little long but I am not sure how they could of shortened it, the emotional beats were better as was the humour. The big problem that I had with it was there treatment of the female characters. I found it questionable at best as they were all underutilised through all the movies despite them trying to make it seem like they weren’t and the girl power scene near the end of the battle was undeserving and frankly left me a little angry. What was the point of introducing Captain Marvel at all as she virtually did nothing?
So here is my list and remember this is more about how much I enjoyed the movie and not about the quality of it. The first list can be found on my Pop Goes the Badger Blog and

All In all Kevin Feige and his team at Marvel/Disney did a very good job with all the movies that they produced over the last 10 or so years and they deserve a lot of kudos for what they have achieved.
