Marvel Studios first female-fronted solo superhero film Captain Marvel just had a screening in Los Angeles. With the official social media embargo lifting post-screening, early reactions are popping up all over Twitter and Facebook.
Obviously the spoiler embargo won't lift til much later, and the official review embargo for press is still in place til March 5th.

Our friends over at Captain Marvel News on Twitter are doing a bang-up-job of retweeting the reaction posts.

Anna Boden (first female director for Marvel Studios, only took 21 films) and Ryan Fleck are directing from a script they wrote with Liz Flahive, Carly Mensch, Meg LeFauve, Nicole Perlman, and Geneva Robertson-Dworet.
Captain Marvel stars Oscar winner Brie Larson as Carol Danvers, Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, Jude Law as the commander of Starforce (who may or may not have two names), Clark Gregg as Phil Coulson, Lee Pace returning as Ronan the Accuser, Djimon Hounsou as Korath the Pursuer, Gemma Chan as Minn-Erva, Ben Mendelsohn as Skull Commander Talos, Lashana Lynch as Maria Rambeau, Algenis Perez Soto, McKenna Grace, and Annette Bening in as-yet-undisclosed roles.
Captain Marvel is set to hit theaters on March 8th 2019 (International Women's Day), and tickets are on sale now.
