    They act like every person should be gay in a movie nowadays, nobody wants this bullshit People just want to see a cool superhero movie, this is why they shouldn’t have let gays and females in to marvel

    So, is Thorette going to stand on boxes when talking to villains? How about intense steroid treatment? At least a blond wig, right?

    I’m glad that they're having more LGBT representation, but I hope they do it right. What I mean by that is that they legitimately have LGBT characters and don’t simply throw the title on someone and pretend they were that way all the time. That feels very disrespectful to the LGBT community, like they only did it so they could say they’re progressive.
    Here’s an example of what I mean. Valkyrie was established to be bi since her appearance, which was good LGBT representation, and it’s been stated that she’s going to have a female love interest in the new movie, which I’m totally on board with and want to see. And her love interest seems like it’s either going to be Jane or Sif.
    Making it Jane would not be good LGBT representation. She was in love with Thor for the first and second movies, was seen and stated to have dated other guys, even having an ex before Thor, and never gave any indication that she was into girls. To suddenly make her Valkyrie’s love interest would feel very forced, like they just suddenly decided to make her bi just so they can have representation. I mean, yeah, they can just say that Jane was bi all along, but that would come across as very forced and inaccurate.
    However, making it Sif would be good representation. Her sexual preference has never really been addressed other than it being vaguely implied that she might see Thor as more than a friend. So she could easily have been bi or even a lesbian all along. Also, unlike Jane, who, as far as we know, hasn’t had any contact or interaction with the Asgardians, Sif would have been with them and would have been able to have gotten close to Valkyrie and established a relationship with her. This would make them getting together feel natural, more real, and not feel forced or like it was simply thrown out there for the sake of representation. This also makes sense mythology-wise as Sif is the wife of the king of Asgard, which Valkyrie now is.
    So, yeah, I really hope they go with Sif over Jane. I’m glad we’re getting more LGBT representation, but I don’t like how so many of them feel like they’re just tacked on, or feel forced, or play such little roles that they feel like they’re their just for representation sake and nothing more. That feels very disrespectful to the LGBT community to me, like they don’t think they’re worth putting much thought into the character or something. That’s just my opinion though.

      @marcus Guteirrez
      It's not all forced, and can often add to a character. Here, I'll give an example of good and bad.
      In the original Beauty & the Beast, Lefou was a Gaston fanboy who worshipped him and kissed the ground he walked on. In the remake, they made him in love with Gaston. This added to his character and gave him more depth and backstory, and also explained his actions more aside from simply making him a major groupie willing to do anything to please hishero. This was good representation and an improvement to his character.
      Now here's a bad and forced example. In the show True Blood, one of the main characters was this girl Tara. The show was 7 seasons long, and all throughout the first 6 seasons, Tara had several love interests, all guys, and a few were pretty big love interests who she only didn't end up with because they died. Not once did it ever hint to her being into girls. Then when season 7 started. There was a time jump from the ending of season 6. The first episode of season 7 suddenly and without explanation had Tara in a relationship with another girl. At first I'm thinking, "Ok, interesting, I wonder how this happened and where they're going with it." But it didnt go anywhere. Tara was in that episode for like 3 minutes, only had a few lines, and then both she and her girlfriend were killed off, and neither of them, nor their relationship, were mentioned again for the rest of the show. So now I'm left thinking, "Well what was the point of even doing that?" This was bad representation that was very forcibly inserted in just to claim that the show was "progressive". And while this for some reason got a lot of praise for being progressive, I'm left feeling insulted on behalf of the LBGT community that the creators very forcibly just threw that in there just so they could say they had representation. It felt insulting and inconsiderate to both Tara's character and to the LGBT community, like they weren't worth more than that tiny, pointless, forceful role.
      This is the bad representation that I have a problem with. I'd like to see representation, but it needs to be done right. Don't just randomly and forcibly throw it out there just for the sake of being able to say you have it. If something like that happened to me for something and was called representation, I'd be pretty pissed off. Yet this kind of bad representation is getting praise, which is why we're seeing so much of it, and that's not a good thing. Representation is good, but it needs to be done properly.

      Viewer Online101 i think representations of lgbtq is brainwashing and a attempt to polarized people and confuse people. I agree its all forced and done it the wrong way but in the sense that they want to destroy culture in America specifically the central values that govern us, they’re doing a good job at misinforming people about reality, facts, science, nature, Ect...

    I'm concerned by how much I dislike Tessa Thompson. It's not healthy to loath someone you barely see this much. But everything she says and does in her movies comes across as superior and condescending.

    this is the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Remember when these same clowns said Captain Marvel would bomb... and then it made a billion dollars? These female, black, and lgbt characters are lifting film to knew heights, and cave men are sad that the world is leaving them behind 😂 when the world grows the hell up, you gotta do the same or get left behind. That’s the way the cookie crumbles, babies.

  • Robert Lewis

    Oh my, look at this mess. The current mostly insane Hollywood crowd without talent is so busy with their agenda they forget to make anything worth watching. Those feminist wildcat women are getting rich off of the retards that follow them around on social media, shaming anyone that disagrees with their dim-witted views. Those mangina men that are helping, "only for the money" are also fake as heck. We all know how the women wiggled in, the usual ways of course. Marry, divorce, money grab, lying, suing, cheating, etc. But this current agenda that is forcing agenda over anything entertaining is terrible and funny at the same time. Watching skinny EXTREMELY weak white women parade around on TV/movies doing it all is hysterical. Also those big mouth white woman are fake, good God there are so many racist white women its not even funny.

    Not one penny from my pocket though for any of it on what I can control. First off the movies/shows are boring as heck. I'm sorry they cannot create any good female characters, so instead they destroy male characters. I think its because those feminist are so crazed they love ruining it for men, or normal men anyway. I guess the little girls will go see it with daddy's money and feminist women taking orders by social media. Those inflated ticket prices offset the really low ticket sales. Anyone that continues to feed the current agenda that crowd is pushing must be little girls or feminist & manginas. I know some men, with their tiny "trying to impress women" brains will say they go because of all the conflict and they makes feel big, when they are actually dumber than dumb.

    I only have a problem with this: the director say wants to “destroy” the Marvel mythology. This has larger implications. Destroying a culture’s myths is basically destroying a culture and spitting on all it has done for humanity. Like Nazi book burning. Intellectual genocide.

But hey we may get bad actors but the movies still turn out to be good. Dont blow this marvel

      @enough - A P L A U S E - I do think though that Natalie Portman might seem a little soft for this role. She doesnt have much of a physical presence which might make the whole thing pretty lame. On the upside she might not be written as a character that constantly jams this girl power bullshit down the audiences throat like some kind of highly enlightened being talking to peasants.

      @enough - A P L A U S E - You cant sell a product (movie) with an actor/actress thats seen as an obnoxious dick. Take a look at Brie Larson, anything with her in it is never going to make as much as it could have because so many people cant stand her. Captain Marvel could have done better had it not been for her being such a Tw@t.

    All of this stuff is overshadowing great story telling because it is the center piece of it all. I think this is just about the almighty buck $$$$. Create a new audience and those people will go and see the movies. Of course they will have the newbies there as well and lastly the MCU fan boys who will accept anything the MCU does no matter how idiotic or blasphemous it is to the comics.
