    Civil War – Totally rocks. One of the best super hero movies of all time. A must see!

    Captain Marvel is Emily Blunt & vice-versa. Kree’s the main villains. Inhumans royal family may cameo because there is no love for that Perlmutter fool. So the feature is scratched. Sharon Stone has cameo in GotG2.
