Despite the popularity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) among viewers, the reaction to some of its movies drastically differs from the previous unanimous support and acceptance. For example, Captain Marvel’s plot is severely criticized due to the flaws in the ideas of its creators. The characters’ selection in this piece is contradictory from the perspective of credibility, and both their behavior and various events throughout the film make an impression of unauthenticity and the shift to bloated femininity.
The most disappointing fact for the fans is the role of Nick Fury’s cat in the movie. It seems to attract too much attention instead of focusing on other people. The situation becomes critical by the end of Captain Marvel when this cat pukes up a potentially world-ending artifact on the table. This development devalues the efforts of Howard Stark and Steve Rogers in saving the world. Moreover, emasculating a male character while making him attached to his pet is a ridiculous solution. As for viewers’ perceptions regarding these occasions’ credibility, this aspect remains dubious because of the low probability of the actions in the center of the narrative. Thus, the cat’s highlighted role, the way of receiving the artifact, and Nick Fury’s inactivity in the movie do not resemble other pieces and cannot be trusted by the audience.
To summarize, the intentions of the creators of Captain Marvel appear to satisfy the tastes of cat-ladies instead of orienting on the general public. The neglect of human characters, the questionable masculinity of male heroes, and the plot based on the least possible events make the movie worse than other MCU works. The only hope for the viewers is Avengers Endgame’s success in addressing the lack of professionalism in Captain Marvel.
