    That's fair. I know trailers aren't always indicative of a film's quality as a whole. By the same token, I don't imagine them to be misleading in terms of visual style and tone (at least not in this particular case), and that's what I was mostly speaking to. Going by the look of the Kree homeworld, for instance, not to mention the Skrulls and Captain Marvel herself, I just can't help but draw comparisons to the Shi'ar Empire and related characters, such as the Imperial Guard. And while there's some obvious levity in the film, it doesn't appear to be too Whedonesque in nature, which again I think is well-suited to the primary X-Men films (not to be confused w/ popular spinoffs like Deadpool and such). To your point, though, given that the majority of footage has yet to be seen, I agree that it probably behooves us to keep our expectations in check for the time being.

    Lol first female lead Marvel character and we are talking about who she should hook up with. Something might be a little off with that

    Nah, all the lead superheroes have love interests. The first woman should be no different, imo.

    The behind the scenes interviews are loaded with spoilers.

    I find the fickle nature of fandom more concerning.

    Trailers # 1 and 2: "Not enough smiling! She's clearly just there for the paycheck! Burn her!"
    Recent footage: "She's so effin' great! That's all I wanted to see! I believed in her all along!"

    I hope I never have to hear the smiling thing again - a sillier complaint about a trailer is, IMO, hard to imagine.

    Just a few short years back, there was a big thing about Henry Cavill not smiling in trailers and promo posters for Man of Steel. So, you'd think I'd be accustomed to this sort of thing by now, but no... still annoying. lol

    It's all Flickchick's fault, though. When in doubt, always blame @flickchick85 .

    This time we are! For the most part. It feels nice.



    That's adorable.

    There seems to be an odd default that a female superhero has to have a superhero boyfriend, though.

    Um, actually I was pushing for her to have a superhero girlfriend in Valkyrie. I never said boyfriend.

    That would be the absolute best way to go. In current time line Rodney is too old, IMO, although with Carol aging at a slower rate than the rest of us hoomans, she might not care. Keeping something like that past tense would be a nice way to go though.
    Preferably, I would say no new romantic interests until the character, any character, is fully set and stable. That's sequel territory. If there is some romantic angle, let it be past tense or a flirty nature with a promise of more later on.
    As for who... Capt America, Falcon, Hulk, Valkyrie, Black Widow, Nebula... I don't care who just as long as it's done well and with heart.

    As to the latest trailer, I loved it. But then I've loved them all so nothing new there. Why anyone had any trouble with Brie Larson being able to handle the role has always been a mystery to me.

    Yes he did. Christine Palmer. Though they don't kiss or anything, she is his ex and they clearly still have feelings for one another. Aka, she's a love interest.

    Feels more casual than love to me.

    No it was love. It just wasn't the main focus of the story. But it was there.

    Lol yeah there ain’t nothing casual about that romance. Granted, I found it incredibly dull but it was definitely there.
