If you have to say you don't hate white guys more than 3 times, you might have an issue.

Just sayin'.

The movie is racist...

I'm tired of the White-Savior trope in hollywood. It seems like Brie Larson is just another virtue signaling leftist for continuing the "White Savior" trope that hollywood just cant let go of.
...and she even put an SJW clause in her contract.

An actress with Chinese heritage was hired to be "not as good" as the white savior (Minerva). Then of course the White Savior had to edge out Maria for screen time - you know because of racism - lord forbid that Maria Rambeau end up as the heroine. Then of course - she works with Korath but she is better than him too - and he becomes a villain. Wakanda is arguably the most advanced nation on earth in the the Marvel Universe. Can they help themselves? No - gotta call the white girl to come save them. Nick Fury - the most badass non-special-power having guy in the universe - nope - he needs the white savior too - since he dropped his pager right before he disintegrated.

Captain Marvel is a racist 'White Savior' film led by a virtue signaling leftist
...or some other outlandish meaningless shit.

Gone are the days when movies didnt have to "mean" something.

Her daughter Monica is teased in the movie, that character later becomes Captain Marvel...

Spiderman was white in Into the Spiderverse. White Spiderman died, leaving black one to fill his shoes.

Seems fair enough to me.

True, but Luke Cage reincarnated as a Jewish kid would be a little jarring.

Nick Fury, too.

Honestly, don't think anyone can do it as well as Samuel L. Jackson...

...Evans's contract is up after this upcoming Avengers movie. I pray they don't follow the comic and make The Falcon the next Cap over Bucky. Worst thing Marvel Comics did...

Rumor is he still might do one more Captain America movie.

I'll jump on the comic nerd grenade. There are three well known (to nerds like me) Captain Marvels:

DC Comics: Captain Marvel (Shazam) that is Billy Batson the kid that turns into Captain Marvel by yelling "Shazam!" He is a magic powered Superman basically. Movie coming out with him also.

Marvel Comics: Captain Marvel (Mar-Vell) was a Kree that had Nega Bands that made him strong, fly and blast things. | Captain Marvel (2) that is Carol Danvers and the subject of this thread's movie. She's a blond Wonder Woman created by science that has blasts.

There are a couple of other minor players that used the name, but the three above are the most well known in my nerdy comic mind.

So one was an Alien from outer space and one was a female. And here you fuckers had me thinking it was just another "whiteman" saves us racist movie from Marvel.

WTF?

Good call. She was legit with light powers. There is a very similarly powered Capt. Marvel from recent years, but not as well known.

Good list of Marvels here: https://bookriot.com/2017/11/09/captain-marvel-101/
