Re: Marvel Studios Captain Marvel (March 8, 2019)

Let's just hope that they fight the urge to go all girl power with this (which they failed to do with Agent Carter).

I mean, if I wanted to watch male superheroes, then I'd watch superhero movies featuring male characters. But if the female superheroes are just gonna be men with boobs, where's the diversity?

Peggy Carter was different because it was a period piece back when equal opportunities didn't exist for women. It was also incredibly boring, so there's that as well .

I don't think the girl power stuff will be anymore prevalent than it was in Jessica Jones, which wasn't much. We'd have cause for worry if Joss Whedon was directing/writing this but, luckily, he's not.

I agree it was boring as fuck, but it was set in WWII ... so honestly to say that women didn't have equal opportunities in the middle of the war is kinda rivisionism. They may not have held all of the positions of authority, but it doesn't mean that the ones that showed aptitude and talent were held back or needed to wag their penises about

Should be apparent how I feel about this.

I think it's unfair to say that film failed because of the women involved. It's more so it being an unfunny, shitty, unnecessary remake.

Do you know anything about witches?

Agreed with both of you. The people that gave it honest reviews didn't really feel like they were really hammering home the girl power stuff. Not as much as is widely believed amongst people who haven't watched the film.

I mean it's there, but it's no more than there is in any form of liberal media these days. It's not over-stated.

And? For one, Carol isn't starting out as Ms Marvel in this movie, so she wouldn't be wearing it in the first place. Second, there is no way in hell they are going to let a woman in a superhero movie wear what amounts to a thong.
