Blu-ray Review – Captain Marvel (2019)

Captain Marvel, 2019.

Directed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck.

Starring Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Ben Mendelsohn, Djimon Hounsou, Lee Pace, Lashana Lynch, Gemma Chan, Annette Bening, Clark Gregg, and Jude Law.

Synopsis:

Captain Marvel closed out the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a movie that was more notable for its incredibly realistically de-aged Samuel L. Jackson than for its story, which is pretty standard fare. This Blu-ray is also a run-of-the-mill effort – even the exclusive extras tossed in with the digital copy aren’t very exciting either.

Now that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has invested a decade in creating a rich continuity that has carried through 20+ movies, it was obviously time for a little retconning. That’s always been a staple in the comic book industry (remember Jean Grey’s death and retconned rebirth in the X-Men comics?), so why not bring it into the McU too?
