We still don’t get to see Captain Marvel until March 8, 2019, but the critics’ reactions to Captain Marvel are looking great. After viewing the film early, critics have taken to Twitter to tweet their thoughts. It looks like Captain Marvel is going to be worth the wait with critics praising this new Marvel Cinematic Universe’s film.
Captain Marvel is MCU’s first ever female superhero film. Captain Marvel stars Brie Larson, and her performance as the titular character is receiving high praise.
Facts: @brielarson is an unstoppable force as #CaptainMarvel. A supreme embodiment of the late 80’s to 90’s heroines that we looked up to, fully formed with agency and whose main relationship is with her best friend. So many girls are gonna see themselves, their struggle & fight!

Although there is another character, you should get excited for it’s a cat, Goose. Although Goose is not all cat-like, she seems to have some impressive capabilities. Cat lovers are in for an extra treat!
And in news that is very true to my brand, I would die for Goose the cat. #CaptainMarvel

Expect the Unexpected
Before Iron Man, there is Captain Marvel, a prequel, taking place in the 90s. Captain Marvel might be the most powerful hero in the MCU. From critics first reactions, Captain Marvel is not as it seems. Expect twists, turns, and alien fighting.
CAPTAIN MARVEL isn’t what I expected based on marketing. It’s pretty much an “all in” cosmic space movie. Also, it’s a lot weirder than I expected. Ben Mendelsohn is awesome as Talos.

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

As mentioned before, critics are loving Brie Larson. Critics have also praised Mendelsohn who plays Talos.
#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
