It is no coincidence that Disney’s high-powered and estrogen filled blockbuster movie Captain Marvel (click HERE) is being released in March. March is Women’s History Month, and at the foundation of this epic treat is a female heroine who helps to save a colony of aliens by tapping into her true power and true self to unmask her full capabilities. If there is a movie that can help inspire a generation of young girls to shoot for the moon, Captain Marvel is it.
I am a self-proclaimed Marvel-phile, so excuse my while I gush about this latest installment in the comic book universe. There isn’t much wrong that Marvel can do in my eyes—yet I have to give this movie a double thumbs up because it features not just one strong female character, but four of them.
OMG! I just saw a screening of @captainmarvel and I have to say this—-if you have a daughter, niece, etc, take her to see this movie. Girl power inspired. It features a diverse cast and it’s dope! #CaptainMarvel

Taking my fifteen year old daughter to see this flick was a bonding exercise of its own spiritual ramifications. Raising a daughter in a society that pays women less than men during a massive #MeToo movement isn’t for the faint of heart. This mom enjoys and delights in the fact that I can take her to see a movie which depicts us as smart and strong and driven and powerful.
Not wanting to give anything away, I will say that Captain Marvel starts slow, but easily finds its pace and will have you thoroughly engaged. In true Marvel fashion, there are two scenes post credits, so make sure you stay all the way until the very end. Oh, and this isn’t your average Marvel origin flick—pay attention to everything.
Stop, Avenger time.
