I've spent the past couple of weeks talking about how the universe was communicating with me.
It turns out the universe might know a thing or two.
I've dropped about 5 pounds since laying off the Cokes.
Of course, some weeks I don't need the universe to point me in the direction home. No, some weeks the course is so simple to plot even a goof like me can steer the ship.
This, kids, was one of those weeks.
What am I talking about?
Why I'm talking about the blinding klieg light that was this week's cheesecake selection.
I mean, seriously, was it likely to be anyone else?
Was I going to go retro, buy early or supporting when the first female-centric MCU movie opens this week?
Was it ever going to be anyone other than Brie Larson?
Sure, she's been here before
, but the arrival of Captain Marvel
also signals the imminent arrival of Endgame and everything the MCU has been building to for a decade now.
Yes, I'm excited.
There are Kree. There are Skrulls. There is Nick Fury. There is Monica Rambeau. There is a cat.
Yes, the cat is a big deal.
Look, we live in a golden age for geek fare. No concept is too far fetched to find itself onto a screen near you.
Captain Marvel signals the beginning of the end, but it could also signal something far larger and more spectacular for the MCU.
For that I say thank you Brie Larson.
Let's hit the links.
