I saw it on Friday and I really want to see it again. I liked it a lot but I would put it in the middle of the MCU pack for me. I don't think it would be in top 5 but it might move up after multiple viewings. That's kind of what happened with Guardians for me (except it went down instead of up). I loved Brie as Carol even though I'd been hoping that Katheryn Winnick of Vikings would get the role. Brie made me pretty much forget about that wish. I also loved seeing the lighter side of a young Fury. From now on every time I watch Winter Soldier I will die laughing when he dramatically tells Steve, "The last time I trusted someone I lost an eye." LOL, Goose was the best bit.
I hope this gets a sequel and we get to see grownup Monica played by Nicole Beharie, who would be excellent casting.
The montage of Carol getting back up after getting knocked will always be good. Loved it in the trailers, loved it even more in the movie.
The 90s bits and the soundtrack was just so good. Brought me back to my high school days. Thanks for that.
I just checked out this video that touched on the whole Shazam/DC thing, Carol's messy comics canon, how she went from bit comics character to big time comics, and some of the "backlash" drama.
