"Well, Thanos is f--ked," tweets one reporter after seeing the film.
Haters trying to rain on "Captain Marvel's" parade got a shock to their systems on Tuesday night, as the first social media reactions to the film flooded Twitter with praise.
As we previously reported, a group of trolls began trashing Brie Larson's standalone film before even seeing it, in reaction to the actress calling for more inclusivity during the movie's press tour. These toxic fanboys apparently saw her request as an attack on white men.
While official reviews won't be released until March 5th, a group of journalists got to watch the first screening of the movie on Tuesday night and tweeted out their initial reactions online following the film. The tweets were almost universal in their praise, setting the bar high for Marvel's first superhero film with a solo female lead.
See some of the early reactions below. "Captain Marvel" hits theaters March 8, 2019.
#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
Also love how #CaptainMarvel is as much a movie about the MCU's past as it is about the MCU's future. Marvel movies I'd binge beforehand: Guardians of the Galaxy The Avengers pic.twitter.com/yQ9NnrzG8F
Realized something half way through #CaptainMarvel...the de-aging technology being used has become so seamless that I forgot it was being used. We are on the precipice of something both exciting and scary. Can only imagine what Scorsese will do with it in 'The Irishman'. pic.twitter.com/JvYbobhoXp
Marvel does a prequel right, not overexplaining too much but giving us unexpected answers in interesting ways. MCU's most multilayered villain story. A fun 90s soundtrack, but sometimes the song choices feel too obvious.
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.
I would also like to confirm what others are saying. Goose the cat is definitely a scene-stealer but one that has a purpose. The entire supporting cast is terrific especially Sam Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Lashana Lynch. They add plenty of humor and heart to the film.
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 was a lot of fun! Just enough '90s nostalgia without overdoing it. Brie Larson is great. Ditto Sam Jackson & Ben Mendelsohn. Goose the cat is purr-fect. Some nice surprises and clever decisions throughout. Cool sci-fi elements. And funny! Thumbs up! pic.twitter.com/PzzxXir8pZ
#CaptainMarvel was my ultimate 90s nerd girl fever dream + a cat. 💕🐈 💫 ✈️ Ben Mendelssohn gives Samuel L Jackson a run for his scene-stealer $$$. But it's ultimately cool AF to see @brielarson harness the power of being “just a girl” 👸 pic.twitter.com/bFHUwa3Gb8
1. Cat people will love this movie. 2. Several truly magnificent music moments for this 90s kid. 3. Carol's hero moment was very cathartic/true to the female experience, imho. 4. The MCU feels more complete now that Carol is in it. ♥️
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!
