James Bond is white, it would be some moronic writing to flip him to a black man. Only morons would embrace such a change.

Having the 007 agent spot open up due to James Bond retiring is how to introduce a black agent of course. Why you'd want to do that though I have no idea. The whole concept is about James Bond.
yep, the Bond franchise was made for a white male, and other cultures converted the concept for their own race. Like Shaft, and theres probably a Korean one made in Korea. But imagine if Shaft suddenly became a bearded white dude.

It's amazing the some men can be so insecure that the addition of a few women and black people on screen drives them batty. The reason you find 100 white male superheroes fine and one female superhero 'SJW gone mad' is because you have been conditioned to believe that seeing yourself on screen is normal and everyone else is not normal. Maybe the 'different' people would like a chance to see themselves on screen. Stop feeling threatened; if Captain Marvel scares you, you can still watch Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Superman, Batman, Flash, Green Lantern, Spider-Man.....................................................................................
Captain Marvel doesn't threaten anyone, it's just an utter poxy character that nobody liked in the comics.

So when average characters get pushed as being this super awesome thing over far better characters just because of their gender naturally people will push back.

If they had made a Scarlet Witch movie instead of CM I can assure you a great many of the people who don't like CM would have loved a well made SW movie. Same with Rogue.

It's not about putting great female characters into stories, it's about the lame as fu** ways they go about it.

I can't fathom how a major movie about Boudica has never been made.

It has all the hallmarks of a Braveheart like appeal about a real kick arse person with a kick arse story.

Yet we get all female Ghostbusters and black Little Mermaids instead.

Just because a character was created to be white (at a time when 99.9 per cent of characters were white) doesn't mean it can't be changed. There is nothing quintessentially white about Bond; his character trait is his Englishness and anyone can be English. Whereas the key character trait of someone like Shaft is his African American culture and minority status. Getting bent out of shape by a black Bond seems rather childish.

Except his whole family history from Scotland that goes back centuries.

Or are you saying there are no distinct white cultures to differentiate them from each other?

Honestly couldn’t give a fork if male, female, black, white or anything else, as long as a story is good. I don’t think I fit the mould though as I’m about 10 Marvel movies out of touch, never a big Bond fan, haven’t watched any form of Ghostbusters since I was 10 or so, and am yet to watch Oceans 13, let alone Oceans 8.

The problem with the liberal rah rah clan is if you’re not one thing, you must be the other. Apparently I’m a fascistic white supremacist incel Nazi according to liberals...ok. Pandering and weak stories just don’t grab me. Superhero movies just don’t grab me. If I only wanted to see myself in films, I’m stuck watching Kevin James flix...no thanks.

The concept of "liberals" is fascinating and intrigues me. When I see the word I think about the liberal party. But more and more, due to the internet, we are adopting language and terms that the americans use. Which suggests left of centre. haha.

Anyway, if we are in the age of leftist cinema, what is/was the rightist age? And what examples of righty movies are there?

Isn't that a comics issue more than a gender issue? ie. she was pushed as being super awesome coz of her powers, not coz she was a chick.

Character doesn't do anything for me either, by the way. Cookie cutter superman derivative.

It was because of her powers, but they went for a character that they can say "she's the most powerful".

So the character hasn't been picked because it brings anything great to the story line, they just picked her because she can all of a sudden claim i'm more powerful than all your beloved male characters.

If they'd built Scarlet Witch up to her most kick arse proportions she'd beat Thanos. But for some reason they've always nerfed her powers despite being far more interesting.

Our "liberal" history goes back to Europe. So was around independent of the US.


Right wing movie.

Thats what I mean though - she's the most powerful from the comics, so it would be kinda odd if they never gave her a movie/presence. I think you'd have more of a point if they brought her in and she totally usurped all the others, but that didn't happen - Cap and Iron Man were still clearly the main focus.

Just seems to me it was a (questionable) creative decision rather than a gender-driven one - as you rightly note, if all they wanted to do was have a chick be the most powerful you can do that with Scarlett Witch.

They definitely just went for the most tacky option to throw into the universe to push this girl power angle.

It wasn't about introducing an awesome character, just something they could market the merch for.

Christ, she didn't even do that much in the film. You'd think she just swanned in, saved everyone in a single go, then kicked Thanos's head off his shoulders. She did no more or less than all the other supporting heroes outside of finding Tony.

I see....so it was OK for him to be played by Roger Moore as a fifty year old but we can't possibly disturb the integrity of the sacred texts by having him played by a black man!

Also how disgusting they cast Daniel Craig to play Bond when the books all say he had black hair.

While we are at it - how dare they cast Sean Connery in the role because everyone knows his mother is not Swiss.

I am still mad at them casting a women as M - we all know in the books he was a male as God intended: "Only morons would embrace such a change."

What is the relationship between the books and the movies now - NONE

Your argument is bulls**t

Bostonian thinks his Irish predecessors are some of the biggest victims in history due to their treatment by the British but has very little sympathy for Aboriginal Australians which says much about his true beliefs on race and racism.

You mean like swanning in and destroying a massive warship in 3 seconds while everyone else is in deep s**t and things are looking dire leaving Thanos looking completely dejected and leading to the lamest scene in the movie?

You have no argument.

James Bond is a white man. 007 is his assigned agent number.

M wasn't a person, it was a position.

So there's a fail for you there and an example of you having no idea what you're talking about.

From Casino Royale to Octopussy he was described as a handsome but cruel looking man with black hair that looked like Hoagy Carmichael. There has been a departure from the way the books described him from Moore on. It did more to damage the integrity of the story to have Roger Moore pooncing around in his 50s than to have Idris as Bond. I hate to break it to you but James Bond is a fictional character and the books have been exhausted - so play on

I rewatched the battle scene, because i like it, again. When she comes in i thought to myself, ya know what Peter, she should just smash thanos into pieces. When they fought she was toying with him, smirking even. Then when
Thanos grabbed the stone and put it in his clenched fist, she realised oh s**t and was punched very hard
. OK then. But you supposed to be the most powerful!




I guess for me personally in the end i didnt much like her movie, but does it cause outrage in me? No.

James Bond is a fictitious white man.

There is literally zero reason to change that fact.

Cultural Marxists must be right dim *******s if that's all the creativity they can come up with.
