When Tony Stark and Bruce Banner try to jump-start a dormant peacekeeping program called Ultron, things go horribly wrong and it's up to Earth's mightiest heroes to stop the villainous Ultron from enacting his terrible plan.
Robert Downey Jr.,
As Scott Lang balances being both a Super Hero and a father, Hope van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym present an urgent new mission that finds the Ant-Man fighting alongside The Wasp to uncover secrets from their past.
After crashing an experimental aircraft, Air Force pilot Carol Danvers is discovered by the Kree and trained as a member of the elite Starforce Military under the command of her mentor Yon-Rogg. Six years later, after escaping to Earth while under attack by the Skrulls, Danvers begins to discover there's more to her past. With help from S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Nick Fury, they set out to unravel the truth.Written by
The movie is not a traditional origin story, as the heroine already possesses her powers when the film starts. See more »
A Skrull's power to shape-shift includes changing their clothes. But when Fury kills the Skrull impersonating Coulson, only his face changes back to normal while he is still wearing a black agent suit.
Every time that a Skrull dies, they revert back to their true form, but the clothes remain unchanged. The big question is if their abilities extend to their clothes, or if the clothes changes because of advanced technology. In the case of the latter, it'd be a separate feature from their own biological ability to change. This is inconsistent, though, as at one point a Skrull impersonates Vers in her Kree uniform but when killed the clothing changes to the nondescript black garments the Skrulls are wearing on their ship.

So I was hoping this would be a great movie and I could write a review telling misogynists to shut up because it's fantastic to have a strong female superhero as a lead character. Alas, in that regard Wonder Woman did a lot better as a movie as a whole.
The acting is not that great between Brie Larson's poor performance and the prosthetic/GCI on Samuel L. Jackson that makes him look younger but also gives him an expressionless wooden appearance. There are very obvious plot holes (like, wait, how did they know to do that?) and the pacing is very uneven; there are a few parts during which I didn't feel engaged at all.
On the plus side it does fairly well as an origin story, and there is that Marvel level of polish in special effects and editing. All in all, it might be a necessary introduction to Captain Marvel for Avengers End Game, but it is probably the weakest MCU movie to date.
