    Well Thor:Ragnarok didn't in late 2017
    Neither did Ant Man & The Wasp in 2018

    They are established characters.

    3 things

    1. This movie was pegged between the two biggest MCU to date and she was touted as being a linchpin for Endgame so people felt that they had to watch Captain Marvel or they might not understand some thing going into Endgame. Turns out you don't, it was baiting

    2. Annoyance builds up over time. Since the film lunched there has been a constant drip feed of stories about how stuck up she's been on set and ******* off not only the men but the other women in the cast. And if she's going to Annoy all the other major players then this will cause problems down the line when she appears in other character movies.

    3. Captain Marvel while making money, almost everyone universally (apart from a handful of sycophants) seemed to indicate she was the weakest part in her own movie. She certainly was for me. If she can't carry a movie on her own then subsequent movies are going to go downhill

    I listen to movie podcasts a lot, the sort that often report cast and crew issues (beef between The Rock and Vin Diesel etc) and not once have I heard of her annoying other cast members.

    I imagine it's the last lot of publicity for Downey, Hemsworth etc in their marvel careers so they won't care about throwing her under a bus if her behaviour is bad.

    Just seems to be the same sniping from the same people who were claiming that Captain Marvel would be a massive failure.

    It reads like you have some kind of vendetta against her than anything else.

    As for annoyances builds up over time, hardly any time has passed between these 2 movies, and she has only been on 1 Avengers movie so that makes no sense whatsoever.

    As for point 3, it’s subjective and you are entitled to your opinion. Although not sure where you got this “everyone universally” from other than fake news as if that’s true, did you take a poll on all the people who have seen the film or are you just making that up base on 2 random opinion piece on the internet? Because base on the ticket sales your first sentence is just Faldo and also, she won best actress Oscar so she has carried a movie. So while subjectively you can think that, objectively you are wrong.

    Don't get the hate for her, I think she did a solid job. Loved the film and really looking forward to this one. IW and Civil war are two of my favourites.

    Nobody claimed it would be a massive failure, everyone knew it would be a huge success boxoffice wise due to it being MCU and landing between Infinity War and End Game, they could have had ANY CHARACTER from the MCU and it would have banked a billion in the same scenario. What people actually said (if you bothered to read rather than white knight) was that she would be poor in the role, dull, lifeless, emotionless etc and that any number of female actresses would have been far better (which is entirely true). They also would have done it without the awful SJW baggage that comes with Brie.

    Looking back this is what give massive credit to Gal Gadot when she was doing the press rounds for Wonder Woman. Other women were bleating on about feminism and first women lead superhero blah blah blah. But Gal herself was very measured and came across as likeable and humble. I was sceptical at first when she was cast but she totally won me over in her own movie and I thought she was by far the best thing about Justice League. She didn't get involved in the social politics and let her acting do the talking.

    If you look at the two the differences are night and day

    Oh and Raymonds_Lins accusation i had a 'vendetta' lol what a joke, i only say it as i see it. And i must be the guy who spends the lest time on these MCU threads, try debating the game, not the player :rolleyes:

    LOL, looking back at the CM thread looks like i said all of the above before, boy do i have a short memory :D

    I thought she was decent in the role but not spectacular, much like many MCU characters. I’m sure she’ll do well and I haven’t heard of any issues about her on set either.

    Like I said, you found an opinion piece and took it as fact.

    So far, I've watched the following in preparation for End Game, with my wife who had only seen some of the more recent ones.

    Captain America: First Avenger
    Avengers
    Captain America: Winter Soldier
    Avengers: Age of Ultron
    Captain America: Civil War

    Just got infinity War to go.

    I'm know there were some important infinity stone movies that were missed (GOTG and Dr Strange) but I thought these were some of the better ones.

    In hind-sight, Age of Ultron does a lot of the moving pieces in to place, but the dialogue was often too clever for it's own good and I think the action is better in the Captain America movies. It's the first movie where Tony mentions the "End game" in the barn talking to Nick Fury.

    Wow that's impressive! My idea is my memory isn't the best so I will forget most of the stuff I see in the trailers :o.

    None of my friends want to go with me to the first screening tomorrow evening, even my fiance. Screw them :D!
