...that they’re killing off all of the legacy white male characters and installing T’Challa (black), Captain Marvel (female), and Spider-Man (an anxiety case) as the faces of the franchise. Even though they probably arrived here by accident and the movies really aren’t that deep.

He's probably the most happy go lucky version of the character in any featured continuity across any medium including tv/films, video-games, and comics.

Second: It's probably best to count the featured non-white male characters when they are actually featured. We can assume BP and CM will be heavily featured going forward but "Disney" isn't "killing off all the legacy white male and characters"; the contracts have run out for the overwhelmingly white male characters Marvel Studios featured in their films and either aren't worth renewing due to cost or the actors would like to do other things.

No reason to give them credit for something that we don't even know is about to happen, especially for reasons that aren't even intended.

As of now, due to Ike Perlmutter being regulated to controlling Marvel TV and Kevin Feige has been promoted to Marvel Studios president; Marvel Studios is featuring characters from more diverse backgrounds and they deserve some credit for that, definitely. But let's not pretend they are killing off all the white males on purpose or that the white males they will still feature don't count for completely made up and silly reasons

Holla when the X-Men films star a woman of color instead of multiple handsome white dudes assuming the story of minority struggles

Spider man as a minority is a hell of a stretch man

Yes. Kudos to them for making these choices, but let's not get carried away.

>and Spider-Man (an anxiety case)

Huh? An anxiety case? That's the big minority appeal here?

No. First, they hit a home run with Tom Holland. That kid is the best version of Peter Parker we've ever seen in a movie. Hands down.

And he's an excellent character to build on going forward. Zero qualms about that.

But you cannot include him as an example of progressive choices. You cannot, particularly when Miles was right there for the taking, and they rolled with the classic. A classic, which, by the way, fucking nailed it.

But that doesn't make it a progressive choice, and "anxiety case" is an awfully forced attempt to cram him into the conversation with T'Challa and Danvers.

Love the restrained take. Like seeing Clint back. Thanos using the armor as a scarecrow. I mean, just take all the money in April. Everyone will be there. If this is Tony and Steve's last stand so be it.

I already miss Cap's beard, I must say...

They could even do a retcon and direct a new version of Age of Ultron and I’d see that too. Yay for the Russos.

Peace,
