All you need to know about the relevance of the newest addition of the movie ‘Captain Marvel’ in Marvel’s franchise of ‘The Avengers’. Get information on its importance and the questions this movie will answer.
Relevance of Captain Marvel:
Captain Marvel’s entry in the Avengers: Endgame movie was nothing less than surprising and confusing. The strong female character’s introduction was epic yet bewildering at the same time. With the costume similar to Captain America, for some, it seemed like a condescending attempt to overpower him with the supreme potential of having tesseract as her energy source. The Captain seems nothing less than miraculous while she comes as one of the last resorts to save the universe. We first see Captain Marvel when she comes to answer the distress call sent by Director Nick Fury’s pager which was never seen before.
Marvel is a pretty big franchise and the characters can get confusing sometimes. Although in the Avenger movies, we can pretty much get an idea of each character and their role, there are still separate origin movies for each character to delve into their past which also allows us to know a few secrets that we would’ve otherwise missed. The origin story also helps us to relate and observe the realistic facts about each character, whether it be a villain or hero.
Captain Marvel also serves the same purpose to the Avengers franchise but with less relevance. Watching the movie does answer some very curious questions but their importance is not that relevant to understand the Avengers: Endgame. Although the character seems to be of importance (and it is), Brie Larson’s strong character’s origin story serves more as a side movie which seems like a fanfic spin off of the beautiful lady in armor. This particular origin story has no contribution to the Avengers franchise that makes it necessary to watch other than answering some frequently asked curious questions. It can be watched as a stand-alone movie but there is a big chance that you might be left with more questions than answers once you watch the movie.
You just have to know that Captain Marvel is a very powerful being that goes around and saves different worlds from doom. She is the reason that the S.H.I.E.L.D initiative was formed and put into action. Her power is immense and she’s under no one’s control whatsoever. The movie has its humorous parts along with its gut-wrenching sad parts that make our superhero what she is today.
So, if you don’t want to watch the movie, then it is totally fine but it is preferable and recommended by many to be put on the watch list, especially If you’re a Marvel’s fan. This movie will divulge quite a bit like: Why and how was S.H.I.E.L.D was made? What is Nick Fury’s origin? Where did Fury get the beeper from? How did Nick get his eye taken out? What is the story behind the name of Avengers and Marvel? Your mind might still need some contemplation to do but do remember, a true Marvel’s fan will clear out and unveil all the doubts and secrets about the storyline.
