Today is the day my friends as its time for us to go higher, further and faster with the mighty Captain Marvel who makes her grand debut as a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for the very first time. The film is opening up today in theaters everywhere but first let’s revisit some of the posts that were done in support of the release over on the PiercingMetal.com website. Last month, Marvel Comics unleashed a crop of one dollar comics, their “True Believers” line which all featured her and you might still be able to get most of them if you ask your local retailer about them. Make a checklist from the post found HERE. I also showcased some Promotional Posters and a Special Look Trailer so click those italicized words to see the posts. Below you will find the Official Theatrical Poster, premise and casting. I’ve spiced it up by adding some other posters as well before my closing thoughts.
The Premise: Set in the mid-1990s, Captain Marvel follows Carol Danvers, a former U.S. Air Force fighter pilot, as she turns into one of the galaxy’s mightiest heroes and joins Starforce, an elite Kree military team, before returning home with new questions about her past and identity when the Earth is caught in the center of an intergalactic conflict between two alien worlds.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: I’m going to try to get out to the movies today and catch this as a part of the opening weekend frenzy if at all possible. I don’t always get to see stuff on opening day and I am pretty eager about this one and how it will expand the MCU. Oh yeah and before I forget about this, the fine folks at Hasbro released a First Wave of their “Marvel Legends Series” action figures for the film which can be examined HERE. So what about you readers, will you be catching “Captain Marvel” right away or will you be waiting on it. The latest I will see this will be next Wednesday if I cannot swing today after all. Chime in down below, its always good to hear from you.
