Not too long ago, Disney put up their awards consideration pages for the films they hope will land some nominations from the Oscars, Golden Globes and other important Hollywood organizations. When it came to Avengers: Endgame, the usual ambition was there for Best Picture, Best Director, and a slew of technical awards. But there was one surprising exclusion.
Robert Downey Jr. previously confirmed that he opted not to campaign for any acting awards for his farewell performance as Tony Stark in Avengers: Endgame. This was surprising to fans since his final turn as the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist and superhero felt like a performance that may have been worthy of at least a nomination. It appears Disney agreed and whether or not Downey intends to campaign for an Oscar, they’re going to do it for him. Robert Downey Jr. is included in the addition of consideration for Best Supporting Actor and Best Supporting Actress categories that feature several other Avengers: Endgame cast members too.

While many of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies are dominated by male superheroes, the women have really started to push forward and take a prominent role. It’s a shame that Captain Marvel was the studio’s first solo movie for a female superhero, and that movie just came out earlier this year, but Avengers: Endgame also gave all our key female characters a big moment in the final battle (even if some fans weren’t entirely satisfied), and that has Captain Marvel star Brie Larson and the rest of the ladies ready for more.
In a recent interview, Brie Larson reaffirmed the passion for a female team-up movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and she also further confirmed that a lot of the women who bring these superheroes to life have approached Kevin Feige about making it happen. Read More »

Let’s make one thing perfectly clear: we have no idea if Captain Marvel star Brie Larson is joining the Star Wars universe and the recent wave of speculation suggesting so is just another case of the internet jumping to conclusions over nothing.
And yet! There’s something to be said about Larson taking to social media to fully embrace this non-story. Partially because yes, Larson appearing in a Star Wars movie would be very cool. But mostly because she seems to enjoy driving the internet trolls nuts, and I respect that.

Remember when all those internet douchebags were saying it would be nice if Captain Marvel was smiling in the marketing leading up to the movie? Well, the movie already had a hell of a response for those jerks, but a new Captain Marvel deleted scene shows that they almost hit the point home even further with Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) using her powers to bring down that biker who asked her to smile while he was hitting on her in the most douchebag way possible. Watch it below. Read More »
Captain Marvel opened this year, but it feels like a very long time ago. If you’re ready to revisit the Brie Larson superhero flick, you’re in luck: it’s hitting digital this month, and Blu-ray in June. That home media release comes packed with six deleted scenes, one of which awaits you below! The scene is set early in the film, before Carol Danvers learns her true nature.

Captain Marvel is an entertaining film. It’s not one of the best entries in the MCU, but it’s fun to watch, and Brie Larson makes for a great, sarcastic, no bullshit superhero. Larson’s Carol Danvers/Captain Marvel is, in short, a great new addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. But the MCU has a serious Captain Marvel problem: they don’t know what to do with her.
This isn’t Larson’s fault. Nor is it the character’s fault. The problem boils down to this: Carol is so powerful, that the only solution the MCU can think of level the playing field is to sideline her. Spoilers follow.

Captain Marvel was the last film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to hit the big screen before Avengers: Endgame kicked off the summer box office with a bang. Though the film does a solid job introducing us to Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) as the Air Force pilot turned cosmic superhero known as Captain Marvel, it’s held back slightly by feeling like a set-up for her character to make a big impact in Avengers: Endgame. Thankfully, the folks at How It Should Have Ended figured out how to take care of this much more quickly.
Find out how Captain Marvel should have ended below. Read More »

When Carol Danvers steps into Avengers headquarters in the trailer for Avengers: Endgame, she looks a little…different. Gone are the loose waves of hair and bare face of Captain Marvel, in which Brie Larson made her debut as the cosmically powered superhero just months ago. Instead, she rocked a smooth straight-ironed hairdo, red lipstick, and a full face of makeup.
The hair could be explained away by the 10-year absence (it was a little ridiculous that her hair was so bouncy after getting blasted by so many aliens), but fans wondered when Carol would have had time to stop by a Sephora while the world was ending. The new look incited more than a little outrage, as fans criticized directors Joe and Anthony Russo for needlessly dolling up Carol Danvers and subjecting her to the “male gaze.” But the Russo brothers have an explanation for the change in the Captain Marvel makeup look: filming schedules.
