My 8yo daughter is also really excited for this. In theory Captain Marvel should be THE biggest superhero of 2019. The genre could really do with this, a female lead in a hugely successful Marvel movie. Black Widow is good, but she's not marketable enough nor taken centre stage.

She's marketable enough, but not for a major film, as she's already been around for several films as a midcarder. No way anybody's buying her in the main event.

Marvel are clearly doing something different with the MCU: Captain Marvel's powerful, but not all-powerful in the comics, but clearly they've decided they need to have their own movie version of Superman, and personally I'm looking forward to this.

I found out a bit of personal trivia: Brie Larson is exactly one decade younger than myself - same birthday! Also, Dizzee Rascal, Julie Andrews, and Randy Quaid. On the "bit crappy" side of things, also Jimmy Carter, Keith Duffy, and (exact same day) Curtis Axel.

I mentioned to my girls the idea that was being bandied about regarding a potential all female team being formed and Black Widow playing a key role in that team. They were both nonplussed by that idea, until my youngest asked if She-Hulk could be in it, then they both got excited.

Emmett Scanlon is a good actor and I am glad he has got his break, I always like his character Brendan in Hollyoaks, He looks awesome as Lobo.

Venom was awesome! Really enjoyed it, the humour worked so well, much better than you'd think from the trailer. It's essentially a Sci Fi horror about a fuckup with a hilarious cool monster attached to him.  Enjoyed it way more than a good few of the recent MCU ones that are all starting to feel too samey.

James Gunn in talks to take over Suicide Squad, apparently offered free reign to do whatever he wants.  It would he a great move for everyone I think. Batista has already said he wants to follow him to DC, not hard to find a job for Big Dave in a comic book film.

I'd imagine that it'll be decent.  If nothing else, Willis must be due a decent film by the law of averages.

Well it looks like Willis and Jackson are actually giving a shit in this film. They have to be. McAvoy is a powerhouse in Split and it looks like he's bringing it again. They also seem to care about the film. Jackson has been on about a sequel for years apparently.

Unbreakable is still a top film. Best thing M Nights done

I've waited nearly twenty years for this, and that ending to Split ruined my normally placid disposition to the point where I grabbed my missus' head and started shaking it side to side in the cinema when the realisation kicked in as to what exactly was going on after the initial shock and confusion over why the Unbreakable theme was playing.

That ending was Shyamalans' greatest trick. Even more so than the Sixth Sense reveal, and Glass is my most anticipated movie in a long, long, long time.
