When the pace of "Captain Marvel" feels a little slow, with much of the movie devoted to the main character discovering a past she can't remember, Jackson is there with much-needed MCU flare. At twenty-two, she was fast-tracked into advanced operations training, sent from Langley to "the Farm", where she lived for six months in a simulated world learning how to use a Glock, how to get out of flexicuffs while locked in the trunk of a vehicle, how to withstand torture, and the best ways to commit suicide in case of captivity. Larson's Vers is like someone trapped in a matrix - she has to shake off the dream of who she is to locate the superwoman she could be.

The film begins on Hala, the homeward of the noble Kree, a race of aliens that seems to have no real aesthetic uniformity. He's threatened by Carol's unusual power, but rather than working to better himself he seeks every opportunity to keep Carol down by manipulating her into believing her abilities aren't gifts, but crutches she leans on that make her less legitimate as a Kree warrior. Also, obsessive funnybook fans may regret that significant pieces of Carol's résumé-she was a different superhero known as Ms. Marvel, then Binary, then Warbird before taking on the Captain Marvel mantle from someone else in the comics-are missing entirely.

"Ultimately Captain Marvel stands both as an introduction to the MCU's most powerful superhero and a unique bridge to even greater things", she continues. Higher, further, faster, as the film's tagline goes. Galvanized by this brutality, Fox applied to a master's program in conflict and terrorism at Georgetown's School of Foreign Service, where she created an algorithm that predicted, with uncanny certainty, the likelihood of a terrorist cell arising in any village around the world. Vers teams up fairly early on with Agent Fury (an eerily convincingly de-aged Samuel L. Jackson) and the two have an odd couple rapport that supports long stretches of the film.

Marvel Studios may have been late to the superhero party when it came to finally making a movie with a female lead, perhaps its biggest stumbling block in an otherwise dominant decade at the box office.

Meanwhile, "Captain Marvel" hits theaters Friday, and the film is already being given special treatment by feminists, who are demanding that male reviewers "sit this one out" and let women review the film. Visual effects alone was a huge learning curve. Captain Marvel is poised to flip that convention by leaving out the traditional love story. It's a refreshing return to the origin story formula that allows Carol to gleefully occupy the same spaces that the MCU has previously reserved exclusively for men. The end result is fun and thrilling, even if it's not always the most surprising. And what really sells this film is that playfulness.

He's back! Guess who?

The movie's directors Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden

In a speech a year ago, Larson noted that 64 percent of the reviews for Hollywood's 100 top grossing movies in 2017 were written by white men. The exposition, especially in the first act, feels a bit breakneck at times as it rushes to try and get out of its own way. And now, so will a shoe inspired by the film.

Larson's performance and chemistry with Jackson is the obvious highlight in a strong supporting cast.

It is also a tale of female friendship, with black actress Lashana Lynch playing Danvers' best friend and fellow pilot Maria Rambeau. Lynch manages to ground the movie with a serious and poignant throughline and ideal counterbalance to Carol's brash heroics and her sometimes slapstick buddy-cop relationship with Fury.

Boden told The New Paper at a roundtable interview last month: "They won't tell us anything about Avengers".
