Episode 58 of The Electric Shadows Podcast sees Robs Daniel & Wallis delivering their verdict on Captain Marvel. Is it indeed Marvel-lous? Or does the cookie cutter filmmaking bite deep? We won’t spoil the surprises, but let’s just say Brie Larson delivers one of the liveliest performances in the MCU.
The Robs also ponder why it has taken so long for Marvel to deliver a female-led superhero movie, what might be next, and go off on one or two tangents about other franchises. Yes, DC is mentioned.
Rob Daniel also reasons why Ant-Man and The Wasp is a more satisfying movie than Avengers: Infinity War, but admits Captain Marvel has got him finally excited for Endgame. Rob Wallis attempts to hide his contempt at Rob D’s efforts to rehabilitate the critical reputation of the (sorely) maligned Ant-Man and The Wasp.
