Fans of Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel will be excited to know that the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s first female standalone film is now available on 4K, Blu-ray, and Digital. Though it may not leave as much of an impression on fans as an Avengers ensemble film, as a standalone it is able to leave a lasting impact because of its themes and added layers, which makes it better than any traditional action flick.
Filled with some insightful and powerful thematic bonus features, Captain Marvel will surely be a great addition to the collection of any fan of Marvel Studios or superhero films in general. Check out the review below.
Directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck give fans a character driven-story that sees Carol Danvers (Brie Larson) go on a journey of self-discovery, where she unlocks her inner strength after it was suppressed by male superiors and then forms new and renews relationships. As I said in my review of the film: “Not only does Carol persist to excel whenever she is put down, but she also finds herself to be a fierce supporter of those who faces the same obstacles. As much as Captain Marvel is about inspiring and empowering, it is also a celebration of sisterhood. And that is clearly on display when the film focuses on Carol’s friendship with Maria (Lashana Lynch), a fellow Air Force pilot who believed that her friend and staunch supporter was lost.”
As for the bonus features, it’s all pretty standard, especially for a superhero origins film, where you will get to see Larson’s journey as she joins the MCU and the training she underwent to become the titular hero in “Becoming A Superhero” and see what kind of impact the titular hero has made across the globe in “Big Hero Moment.”
This also isn’t just an origins story for Captain Marvel, but for Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). In “The Origin of Nick Fury” fans will get to see the MCU’s most significant events through Nick Fury’s eyes, and see how his influence helped shape the MCU.
“The Skrulls and the Kree” bonus feature explores the conflict that leaps off of the page and comes to life on screen. However, those who have seen the film may know that there were slight changes made about these two warring alien races. But for those who have not seen it, and are still unfamiliar with how these two have been locked in conflict, the film will change the way you see them.
And of course, there are some more hilarious features that you can look forward to. The cast and crew open about working with Goose the cat and what it took to make sure he did everything on cue in “Hiss-sterical Cat-titude.”
Digital exclusives include “Journey into Visual Effects with Victoria Alonso” which is a look at how Alonso went from a visual effects head to become one of the members of Marvel Studios’ brain trust. “And What Makes a Memory: Inside the ‘Mind Frack'” provides a look at how an action sequence in a Marvel Studios film is put together.
And as with almost all of these home video releases, there are also deleted scenes and commentary from the directors. Both of which expand on the original cut of the film and explore some character moments that didn’t make the film.
