Yamp: Captain Marvel
Phase 3, Episode 9.
The 1 billion (worldwide) juggernaut that is Captain Marvel is here to fight the Skrulls, but then the Cree and ultimately to save the world. Starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Annette Bening, Ben Mendelsohn, Lashana Lynch and Clark Gregg. This modern-day tale, set in the 90s, packs quite the impact on the box office.
Listen to Pat hate on all the MCU connections, as they contradict much of the canon of the past 20 movies. But it's not all hate, as Pat credits this adaptation of the Captain Marvel character as being spot-on. Mike yearned for an actual final battle between Danvers and the Supreme Intelligence rather than the villain-by-proxy that is Ronan in this movie.
Discover the mystery behind Danver's real call-sign in the comics, as it was not Avenger, as it was in the movie. Then listen as Pat make the ridiculous claim that the all-time call sign in movie history is Merlin, while Mike corrects him. It's Maverick! It's always Maverick!
