26. Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel made some long overdue history earlier this year when it became the first female superhero movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and, in doing so, ended up shocking the world to become the first ever female-led film to cross the one-billion mark at the box office.

Starring Brie Larson, the film is essentially a prequel as, despite the fact that its a Phase 3 film, it’s set in the mid ’90s and tells the tale of Carol Danvers – who comes to Earth when it’s caught in the midst of an ongoing war between the Krees and the Skrulls.

There’s a lot to love about Captain Marvel, but nothing more so than the way in which Larson effectively brings Danvers to life. And pairing her youthful charm and powerful presence with the incomparable Samuel L. Jackson was a stroke of genius, as the two become quite dynamic duo. Having said that, elements of the opening are hard to follow, Ronin never amounts to anything and the villain is, again, rather one-dimensional.

The story of Captain Marvel‘s release is much more remarkable than the story of the film, but that said, it’s a thoroughly entertaining and fully enjoyable superhero movie – and one that is worthy of holding the great honour being the MCU’s first solo female offering.
