Captain Marvel

First trailer:



Never read any of the comics, & the trailer doesn't seem to give a lot away plot-wise (for once), but it looks like your standard polished Marvel fare & Brie Larson's always worth a watch...

Looks good and does not use her original Comic Origin, That Blockbusters CGI at the start was God Awful though...

yay! Finally, a female superhero.

(obviously a joke based on the media reaction to Wonder Woman)

Sold. Good to see Fury and Coulson back in the day (though the younger Coulson does remind me of Tintin).

Yeah, but she's not black so it's not good enough.

Another thread about a film without a white man in the lead role already derailed after just 5 posts.

Personally, I can't wait for this. Looks like it could be a lot of fun. Also with what looks like a lot of it being set outside of earth it will close some of the gaps between the earth bound heroes and the Guardians and Thors etc.

I don't think either Taq or I care about the gender or race of the lead, we're just playing up to the trendy media affront when "minorities" aren't all we see. I'm sure the film will be up to Marvel's usual excellent popcorn standard and I look forward to seeing it.

If you don't care, why bring it up? It's tedious.

I was being satirical about the mainstream media's response to genre entertainment they clearly know nothing about.

It's all well and good having a female superhero, but can she twerk?

Some fans have come up with a theory that the cat takes Nick's eye

The last time I trusted someone, I lost an eye,


Will wait for a rental for the film, Larson's sounds so bored and lifeless in the trailer but mainly her toxic views in real life makes me wait for the rental to catch for the next Avengers film

Also shame there was not a Black widow and Hawkeye prequel team up by the directors of winter soldier (and it would have(pre-eye patch) Nick fury as the handler)

Yeah, what toxic views? ... and you know that Anthony and Joe Russo have been quite busy doing Civil War and then directing both Avengers Infinity Wars films since they did Winter Solider..?

I wasn't aware of Larson's toxic views either? .... Although, it's probably because I'm too busy staring at her magnificent chest to notice....

Film continues to look good, remains an opening day watch for me!

What "toxic views"?

a quick google and all I found of any "controversy" was:
  • She posted a picture of herself petting a dolphin in 2004 (animal cruelty?)
  • She told people where to go when they said Captain Marvel should "smile more"
  • She took part in the Women's March on Washington and criticized Trump's policies on transgender rights.
  • She bemoaned the lack of diversity among film reporters and called for better representation of minority voices in film criticism.
  • She's an advocate for sexual assault survivors, and uses her celebrity to speak on political and social issues

Non of which I'd describe as "toxic".

I didn't want to drive the post off topic, it was actually the reaction about Captain Marvel should "smile more", she just didn't just tell them to get lost. Started to make into sexism issue, when it was not (which is very trendy to make into like Ocean's 8)

I actually agree there should be more diversity about film critics and with youtube its actually easier but it her speech at some awards blamed men critics for 2 films doing badly. (nothing to do them being bad) also repeatedly said "didn't hate white dudes"

On this below link has good tweet from Alison Willmore from buzzfeed has some good points why she is partly right about more view points and why she is wrong
https://www.theguardian.com/film/201...n-film-reviews

Just finding it tiresome, and just want to enjoy the film without someone trying to score internet points. Its bad enough you have trump making the world a bit ***** with his views on grabbing women.
Also the others you put are not controversial at all

Like Shteve, I'm sure the film will be up to Marvel's usual excellent popcorn standard and I look forward to seeing it.

Non of them are toxic.

The "smile more" was a little sexist when you look at the Iron Man, Captain America, Thor posters/publicity shots where they are all looking mean and moody.
