    Hi @Shuri !
    I’m so glad you loved it!! I love it - and Jude Law’s voice is just beautiful. That Skrull transformation was really good, too. And of course - the humor is so good! I love that aspect.

    I am so excited to actually see the Kree in this movie. Yeah I know, Ronan was in GotG, but we saw so little of Kree society. I am so pumped to REALLY see it.

    It would be nice to give Rhodey a character outside of Tony to interact with. Though we all know Tony will always be his 1 true love :o

    The age gap between Larson and Cheadle is too wide. It's not very progressive to have your first female lead fall in love with a man much older than she is, now is it.

    Honestly I hope there's no romance in this movie... they should save that for the sequel.
    I simply cannot wait for Marvel to introduce the queen of snark herself, She-Hulk. The world is not ready.

    But the characters themselves are much closer in age. So I would view that a little differently.

    I wouldn't call T'Challa snaky too, but him not being so might be the reason lots of fans preferred Shuri to him. Chris Evans pulled off a miracle making Cap one of the most loved heroes.

    No to that too. WM looks 30 years older than her.

    Interesting and awkward. Although I wouldn't mind a bit of airforce banter between them.

    No man for Captain Marvel. Other than Goose/Chewie.

    If we're going with the assumption that Carol prefers black guys, Sam would probably be the best option romantically.

    I agree. Make her gay

    Given Hollywood's tradition of pairing actresses with older male actors, I'd say the age of Larson and Cheadle matters more than the age of the characters they're playing.

    It’s about time we had a gay female superhero whose sexuality isn’t hidden like Valkyrie’s was. But Captain Marvel has never been gay in the comics, has she? I’m just wondering. I know it’ll never happen.

    Nope, never. I was just joking, by the way... or was I.

    Than Falcon is your best option since the people of Wakanda would riot if it was T’Challa

    I appreciate that they finally put some personality on display for CM.

    Larson may turn out a quality performance, but I'm starting to think she's simply not a good sound bite - especially for trailers where they cut and paste everything. Also, still don't like anything I've seen of the skrulls so far.

    No, not at all...those actors are much more seasoned actors, far beyond Brie, come on, no comparison. They don't need help to carry a film.

    There's something that Ryan & Anna, and Fiege for that matter, see in Brie, they feel comfortable, she's right for the part...I dont see it...that's me. Not sure if she was a 2nd or third choice they settle with...i know she was cast long ago, just saying, not sure she was the 1st pick or how ever number actresses turn it down before her. I'm suspicious however, this film will be in the same vein as Green Lantern. :dry:

    IMO, no comic book movie except Justice League compares to Green Lantern. I can’t see any comparison, but that’s just me.

    In what way? That's a broad statement.
