Complete with the Matrix lines, right?

Brie Larson did a fine job is Captain Marvel, and she had every bit as much personality is Scarlett Johansson does is Black widow. any critique you may have to order is probably just towards the character, which is rather vanilla and very Deus ex Machina/Mary Sue.

Maybe if we're talking about Iron Man 2 Black Widow.  From Avengers all the way until Infinity War, I think we get a solid idea of who she is, what her fears are, what motivates her, what she holds dear, what pisses her off, etc.

Yeah, but that highlights the point. Black Widow has had more time.

I mean, I got a good idea of who she was in Avengers and that was only her second appearance.  Considering she is not a major player who has never had her own origin story, it's not glowing praise if she is a more complex character than someone who has their own movie.  I'm not sure how you think that's a compliment.

Are we talking development or acting?

I'm saying I think Larson gave as much likeness to Marvel as ScarJo did to Widow in any appearance. Obviously she hasn't interacted with the big guns yet.

The "one arm behind the back comment."

I saw it last night. It was good, I like that it was more of a action set-piece standalone film then I direct part of the MCU. I know of course that ties in there are a number of ways a tizen but I was pleasantly surprised. Yes it had a whole lot of girl power moments, but it was supposed to. And they didn't come across as overly ham-fisted. What was ham-fisted was the fact that Fury took the avenger initiative from Carol's pilot moniker. I thought that was unneeded also Mar-Vell should have been a guy.

The more I think of it, the more I expect Quan to come in here and tell us that Thanos is Clubber Lang and not Drago....

That does fit the rematch narrative.

Thanos lives alone, trains alone, he wins the title alone.

Banner "Nat, I'm afraid of losing what I got!"

it was never about an apology.

This. It’s not about the apology, it’s about humiliating that target to the extent that others will be intimidated.

The lesson seems to be that pedophilia jokes are ok but jokes that are offensive to gays aren’t.

Yup. They just did the same to O'Rourke for the most vanilla off-hand remark ever and he caved right in like soft serve.

Wait WTF - this feels like its from The Onion:

Quote
On Thursday, speaking in Keokuk, Iowa, he highlighted the many challenges that face residents in rural communities because of a lack of internet access.

...

“They can’t go on Tinder and find a date tonight, to find that special person who's going to make the difference in their lives. I want to make sure every American has that opportunity.”

Yeah it's Simpons satire plot from the 90s.

He looks like a member of the Current in the early 90s.

Exactly. The film picks up right after the snap. Banner, clutching Cap and looking up at Thanos just like Rocky did Apollo.

This trailer should have just been Hulk hitting and heavy bag and lifting weights to Hearts on Fire by Survivor.
