Now Playing: Captain Marvel Trailer Breakdown!

Captain Marvel's release date is just a couple weeks away, coming to theaters on March 8. With that day fast approaching, the studio has started to screen the film for critics. That means we're seeing the very first impressions rolling in via social media, and they're by-and-large very positive. Even Goose the Cat has attracted a fanbase. [Update: With the release of the movie now here, you can check out our full Captain Marvel review.]

This film takes place in the 1990s, and introduces a brand new hero to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Captain Marvel is one of the most powerful characters in Marvel comic continuity. Following the disastrous events of Avengers: Infinity War, Nick Fury sent out an emergency distress call to her just before he faded into dust. This prequel explains just how Fury came to know Captain Marvel, and more importantly, why she's his trump card. It also delves into dealing with the Skrulls for the first time, and its post-credits scene paves the way to Endgame.

The reactions on Twitter are glowing, praising its fresh approach and sense of humor. Aside from that consensus, some critics shared more specific reactions. Collider EIC Steven Weintraub remarked on how far Marvel's de-aging tech has become.

"The de-aging technology being used has become so seamless that I forgot it was being used," Weintraub said. "We are on the precipice of something both exciting and scary. Can only imagine what Scorsese will do with it in 'The Irishman'."

Check below for a roundup of reactions. Captain Marvel releases on March 8.
