    Captain Marvel

    ★★★½

    "I have nothing to prove to you."

    This line is spoken by Brie Larson as Carol Danvers in Captain Marvel, the latest superhero extravaganza. I know this line is meant to be a rallying cry for women and young girls everywhere who have lived in the shadows of their male counterparts.

They use their real names and often can be seen wearing clothes promoting their group. A misstep by Blomkamp.
