    How is this guy different from Iron Fist?

    I’ve read a lot of Marvel Comics but only recently heard of Shang Chi.

    Seems like a Bruce Lee knock off.

    Gosh, look at all those white faces. The only two blacks are relegated to the sides of the poster and completely minimized. And Black Panther left out in favor of White Cis Male Saviors Stark & Rogers? And pretty White Blond Mary Sue who debuted a week ago more prominently featured than poor black female Wakandan who's already been in two films? Not very woke. :(

    LOL! For all of Marvel's PR talk about "diversity & inclusion," they know who their audience is and who's buying the tickets, and it ain't the SJW twitter mob.

    Let's see, featured on this new poster are 6 white men, two alien characters voiced by white men, two white women, one alien character played by a white woman.

    I wonder how Cheadle feels being the House Negro? :lol:

    I can assume that Dickynoo will be boycotting this film to protest the lack of minority "representation?" Or will he continue to financially support corporate patriarchal systems?

    C'mon Dickynoo, it's time to demonstrate your SJW bona fides. You gonna boycott this celebration of White Cis Male patriarchy and White Savior syndrome?

    We live in a world where Rocket Raccoon and Spider-Ham are mainstream popular culture. :D

    ...eh, I'm still greedy, I want DCEU to squeeze Ambush Bug in and complete the trifecta.

    They better not have Captain Marvel save the day, I hope they minimize her involvement. To try and shoehorn her in is ridiculous.

    Has any one Avenger ever "saved the day", in any of these movies?
    No?

    You know what I’m talking about. She’s new on the scene, it should be the main Avengers, especially Cap and zircon Man.

    Remember the meme from not all that long ago? Before the Wonder Woman movie? DC: "We can't make a movie with a female lead." Marvel: " Here's a movie with a talking raccoon and talking tree. Woo-hoo!"

    Scarlett Witch, Quicksilver, and Vision were noobs, they helped out.
    Black Panther, Ant-Man, and Spidey were noobs, they helped out.
    Dr. Strange was a noob who helped out.
    The Avengers were noobs in the eyes of the Guardians, and vice versa when the teams merged.
    How is Captain Marvel different?
    And I don't wanna hear no anti-feminist vlogger crap.

    Ope, the poster had a slight defect that got fixed.
    Danai Gurrira's name got left off.
    Here's the fixed version.

    She's been a part of the MCU for one movie, it would be a diservice to the fans if she swooped in and saved everyone when we've been following most of these characters for several years.

    I don't care.
    :shrug:

    Bullshit.

    Again, not gonna happen.
    Not how these movies work.
    Everyone has their moment.

    Scarlet Witch did a lot of "day saving", in Infinity War, and she was only in 3 movies counting Infinity War.
    Didn't hear any sniveling over that.
    Stop listening to vloggers.
    I say this as someone who used to.

    And hey, Okoye has only been in Black Panther previously.
    What if she spears Thanos?
    What are ya gonna say about that?

    I'm gonna call BS because it should be one of these three men, Cap, Thor or Iron Man. Thor for obvious reasons.

    Why, because they already faced Thanos and got their asses handed to them? :?:

    Dr. Strange looked into the future and saw the only way to defeat Thanos, and after he saw that, he chose to hand Thanos the time stone at a particular moment.

    Doing it exactly when he did, he stopped Thanos from killing Iron Man, and created a timeline where Thanos used the gauntlet at the exact minute Ant-Man was in the quantum realm. That timeline also led to Nick Fury getting dusted while he was close enough to his Captain Marvel pager to contact her before disappearing.

    So presumably those three play an essential role in defeating Thanos, but so far that's all I can say for sure.

    I mean, in the comics...

    It would be like watching Smallville for ten seasons and in the series finale Supergirl shows up to defeat Apokolips, it just kind of sucks the wind out everything that's been building up until then.

    No it wouldn't.
    Because MCU isn't Smallville.
    There's no single lead character.
    Never has been.

    Man, I'm glad there was no internet in the 80's, I can't imagine having to listen to dweebs whine about Lando and Wedge blowing up the second Death Star instead of Luke or Han.
