    It would rewrite the bulk of her history to serve Steve's story. I wouldn't like to see her character used as a prop in anyone else's story, even Steve's. And as she told Steve, "The world has changed, and none of us can go back. All we can do is our best, and sometimes, the best that we can do, is to start over." I'm not sure what starting over is going to look like for Steve, but the big theme that has been part of his story (especially in Ultron) is wanting to go 'home', Neither going back to Peggy and rewriting history, nor sacrificing himself and dying for the greater good really fits the arc they've been constructing for him. But that's partly why I like the idea of him reinventing himself in some way (such as, as Nomad), and finding the sense of 'home' he's been searching for.

    Yes! I really like that idea too. And I like the idea that Wendy could have been working with/for Peggy (and Howard).

    Looooved it! Maybe because of my limited familiarity with the source material, I didn't find the beginning slow at all and I really enjoyed the '90's immersion, also really liked the placement of "I'm Just a Girl", but I felt like the sound effects from the scene itself were maybe a little bit too loud and sort of competed with the song. Loved Monica and Carol finding each other again, that was the heart of the movie for me and they played off each other incredibly well. And I didn't have any of the line reading issues that I felt in the first trailer and Brie totally inhabited the role (and seeing how she played it, I agree she has a very 1940's Bucky feel, with a bit of Peggy Carter thrown in and I definitely think Steve in particular is going to love her!). She was so, so good.

    Not because of the Endgame trailer (which I have read the detailed summary of, but purposely didn't watch), but tonight will be my first viewing of CM. I am excited!

    ... or goes full Nomad and takes over the 'cameo' role from Stan Lee. 😉 (I'm only half joking)

    I am very glad it appears like the MCU is going to become much more decentralized after Endgame.

    I saw that too and I rolled my eyes so hard. Woman can also like and wear makeup for themselves. The Mohawkeye. (I died laughing when I saw that on twitter) Exactly, I think Steve is going to love Carol. (Steve's issues with Tony are about Tony, but I don't think any of that will matter now)

    I think present day SHIELD had is origins in the SSR from Agent Carter days, but sometime after WWII changed it's name to SHIELD, but given the top secret type things they were working on (i.e. Howard's Super Soldier serum, the Pym Particle), they purposely kept a low profile (size of their building notwithstanding... it was probably just dismissed as a Big Government Building) and didn't make the existence of enhanced or extra-terrestrial beings public knowledge until after Thor very publicly showed up (Enhanced!Steve was always believed to be a one-time-thing and I don't think the general public really knew just how enhanced he was), so they were still trying to keep a low-ish profile when Tony basically blew the lid off things in the first Iron Man. Hydra obviously knew they existed before that.

    5 years ago,, or even 2 years ago... I probably would have agreed with that. But I think that they realize that "safe" is starting to get a bit repetitive (i.e. boring) for them, so I feel like with all their talk about diversity (and the ridiculous success of Black Panther, Aquaman, Into the Spiderverse and Captain Marvel), they are at least open to stepping a little ways out of the 'typical' box. (and Michael Keaton is still far and away the best Batman :-D)

    This is from the MCU wiki: There doesn't appear to be any 'offiicial' detail on how it got from Howard to Wendy Lawson. I haven't seen Captain Marvel yet, so I'm not sure when the situation with Wendy occurs. But Howard died in 1991, so it could have been after that? I've always suspected Howard used the tesseract power to create his version of the super soldier serum, but even with that, it could have been at any time after he acquired it in '45.

    Yeah, I think that's exactly why it bothered me. But even from a cis het perspective, it's problematic if that is what was being implied. I mean, you can't tell if someone is queer just by looking at them. You also can tell if someone is autistic just by looking at them, and... you can't tell if someone is a superhero just by looking at them. There literally is no 'look'. So if that was a genuine part of the casting guidelines, I hope it just means that they are looking for an out gay actor, who can literally look like anyone. Anything else is just a (conscious or unconscious) bias or a preference.

    And their Stark-tech and talents/training served them well against the Chitauri, Ultron and others. Per the wiki I did remember correctly that Gamora has super-human strength, and other attributes. But the original point was that the idea of looking "like a superhero" is essentially meaningless, because regardless of what they look like, they'll either have equalizing tech, or some super-human ability. I think that fact that Peter Parker doesn't "look like a superhero" is an essential part of his character.

    Hawkeye and Black Widow both have tech, and both have extensive training (and I think you could argue that Hawkeye has some uncanny ability, while Black Widow's training was... unusual) and both are fit, but neither are that "solidly built". Out of their gear, they both look like 'regular (albiet very pretty) people'. Gamora is an alien and I seem to recall she had super-human strength, at least... and tech.

    What MCU superhero doesn't rely on tech or innate powers?
