Reading Time: 4 minutes In the final instalment that closes down a sum total of 22 movies, directors Anthony Russo and Joe Russo assemble the ravaged lives of the Avengers to deliver a knock-out saga that’s high on spectacle and fan-service, but even higher on the interactions and emotional payload.

Reading Time: 5 minutes Captain Marvel must be the first superhero who faced vicious, non-alien attacks even before she made her onscreen debut. And in this Anna Boden-Ryan Fleck helmed project, there’s an element of grace and humanness, a struggle to match superhero power with emotions that aren’t always the right guiding compass. It also mirrors all that is wrong in today’s more connected, more polarized world. Even as it entertains and gets in its messaging, the movie has a far bigger battle lying ahead. No, not the ‘ Avengers: Endgame’, but the one awaiting it offscreen.
