We head back to the MCU for Captain Marvel! This one was enjoyed by the pod, but to varying degrees. Some of us think Vers is a bit lacking in character. Some of us wish we got more S.H.I.E.L.D. Some of us love Flerkins. All of us love Ben Mendelsohn. But, all and all, we think Captain Marvel is worth seeing, especially as a preview of what she is going to do in Avengers: Endgame. So strap in those earbuds after you’ve seen Marvel’s latest and see what we’ve got to say!
