    Worrisome that they will excise the controversial and contemporary commentary and themes for fear of making people "uncomfortable".

    I mean did you see Captain Marvel? I think that alone proves that's nonsense.

    Plus that movie used the Skrulls on commentary about immigration and immigration rights.

    Why use Captain Marvel, a film with incredibly wishy-washy politics, as the example and not Black Panther? The film that actually explored issues in depth and not just give lip service to it?

    Was Captain Marvel that wishy washy? I'm not sure it was. But there you go, Black Panther is another one.

    How were either of those films controversial in any way shape or form?

    Captain Marvel is so faintly about immigration that using it would be a bad example. Black Panther's whole thesis is about the Black identity

    Doubt they'd piss off tika seeing as he had success with ragnarok and is making love and thunder.

    I must've missed when Stephen Merchant joined this movie. Love that actor. Also, "Burn down the house and blame Winston Churchill" is a great line.

    "You're not a Nazi, Jojo, you're a ten-year-old kid who likes dressing up in a funny uniform and wants to be part of a club."

    Boy, if that line doesn't sum up angry white man culture I don't know what does.

    As any Taika Waititi movie this one is endlessly quotable.
    "Kids it's time to burn some books. Yes!"
    "Burn down the house and blame Winston Churchill"
    "It's definitely not a good time to be a nazi."

    JoJo's actor really does look like he could be the son of of Scarlett Johansson
