Maybe it's to sort of break off from "our" universe? I guess? Obama was the president in the MCU correct? Now it's some other guy

In the trailer the president says he was elected on one platform... that seems pretty stupid. Usually presidents are elected based on several issues, not just one area. And they certainly wouldn't admit to only being proficient in one area.

Safety and security seems like a particularly relevant topic in a world full of superheroes and villains. Not to mention aliens from outer space.

Of course. And the whole one platform thing, leaves open he possibility of a mistake. Obviously the movie doesn't center around the president, but even though he's proficient in " the right platform", it is one platform, which could lead to the possibility that the wrong man was elected to office. Not major, but its something that could add a bit of spice

Here's my theory

The presidents went in the order they did in the MCU like in our universe.

Now after the Chituari invasion, which say happens in May 2012, Obama resigns from office or runs for reelection, but loses, while Romney didn't bother running for president or he did, but lost in the MCU too

I don't see where he said he was only proficient in that area. He said he was elected on a single platform to protect the country. Very understandable after what happened with the events of Avengers.

Yes, I don't think it was officially states ever in the films. In some of the MCU timelines I've seen it mentions Obama, but those are secondary-canon, if it doesn't appear in the films, then it's non-canon to the MCU.

Let's just say the MCU is not Transformers.

I think we might get more knowledge of a MCU presidential situation in Cap 2

They've alluded to him





He probably was elected one term and now William Sadler's is the next president

But the Vice President is a Latino, which is something of a first for Hollywood. And odds are he'll get a promotion sometime in this movie.

My first memory of a non-white President came from Dennis Haysbert on 24, back in 2002, so if anything, Hollywood was ahead of the curve. Also, NBC's The Event had Blair Underwood playing President Martinez, a black Latino President.

Deep Impact was my first memory of a black president... Morgan Freeman maybe?

That's true, but I never saw that film. Plus, it got overshadowed due to it being released the same year as Armageddon, which I've seen more than a few times.

Wasn't the president in the Dark Knight Rises white? Though he had a several second cameo while this one will have a longer role. More time to absorb his whiteness and the incongruity of that color to the current, real president.

Obama was never seen or mentioned in any of the previous movies. Nor was Bush, and Iron Man and TIH both came out when he was still president.
