The irony since the group raising the biggest two stinks out there, are in fact snowflakes.  But me being a feminist and all, I support their beef.  The other major pandering scene earlier in the movie, well whatever....

Literally no idea what this is supposed to mean.
---------

Look I didn't mean to turn this into a thread about snowflakes and SJW stuff. I was just saying how forced it was and seemed to be a bit too obvious of pandering IMO. Essentially it was lazy compared to the scene in Infinity War with Black Widow Scarlett Witch & Okoye which was just as effective at showing those characters in action being awesome but worked with the flow of the movie.

 I can't speak to the other forced stuff Chicos is referring to.

Guessing he's talking about the acknowledgment of gay human beings. Wasn't a big part of the story at all and was dropped in very casually, but it's the kind of thing that tends to bundle undies.

Just came from Endgame.  Loved it,  Ties everything together and yet leaves everything open. How Marvelish!
Interestingly, Marvel is saying the Spiderman movie in July is the end of Phase 3 not Endgame.

It means he was implying I was a snowflake when if you read the press on who is most upset about the scene in question is from Feminists railing on it.....that’s the irony.  The truly “aggrieved”.  And yes, it was forced, patronizing, pandered, etc.....but I enjoyed the movie very much....it just wasn’t needed the same as several other scenes.  Another snowflake group is all wound up and pissed off about Black Panther in that same scene.....whatever.  The other forced scene was admitted to by the director as purposely forcing it so they could make a societal call because you know...Marvel comics is where we all get woke...when they admit to forcing it in there, I just take them at their word that they are being truthful....forced.  Great movie, can do without the forcing of stuff when feels nd looks forced, so much so that the very groups of people that they are supposed to be paying homage are ticked off in how they did it....backfired.

Nope, and why would I?  People in my family are gay, some of my employees are gay, dear friends of mine gay....I was in a gay wedding this past Summer.  You couldn't be more wrong.

Of course, fun movie enjoyed it very much.  Threw down many ducats myself.  It could have been an even better movie, but you know....boxes needed to be checked to addressed the outraged.

I'll say, you are really going awfully far out of your way to be upset about this movie. Nothing feels more forced than your reaction.

Not surprised, but it is tiresome. Not something to address in here without spoilers.

I also consider myself a feminist, but I think Hollywood could use a lesson in subtlety.

Just watched the movie last night and absolutely loved it, not sure I could find a single complaint about it.

I will say this about the "gay" scene that some seem upset about here, the fact that anyone reacts to that scene or finds it remarkable in anyway is exactly why that kind of casual reference needs to be in a movie like this. It should be totally unremarkable that someone in the MCU is gay and goes on dates, so why is it so disconcerting that such a scene exists? Especially when it's done in such a casual and unforced way? I bet you there are some that didn't even notice

At what point does one go from being a feminist to being a male lesbian?
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

Male Lesbian Man/Woman

Sounds like the next MCU character!

Yes, but I don't think until later in Phase 4. I expect that Deadpool will be the bridge to bring the X-Men into MCU

From what I read there is no word yet what Disney will do with X-Men and if/when they will introduce into the MCU.

I read that someone wants to introduce Deadpool into Spiderman 3 (there is a Deadpool & Spiderman Comic), but that Sony was pushing for Tom Hardy's Venom to be introduced instead.
