Does your Thor still have balls?

I've learned today that a new Thor movie is expected to came out in 2022, and it will depict a woman as the god of thunder. This is the emasculation of the entire fandom.
I want to take a vow: from this day on Marvel/Disney (where I spent my allowance year after year when I was a kido) will never see another dime from me. I am a feminist but I will not pander to this disgraceful gender washing.
Use your imagination (if you have one) to create or aggrandize female characters but stop transgendering our heroes. I've even heard about a female 007(and a black one too). Read Flemming's work and tell me where does that makes sense, he was a narcissistic and James Bond was his highly embellished alter ego.
I just saw The Old Guard, an amazing action movie with an outstanding leading female role, that I would love to see turning into a franchise but this, like Lara Croft, is the exception. Like in so many other fields, the corporations only care about milking you, almost never betting on excellence or risking on truly new content and instead choosing to pander to the brainless SJWs that infest our society with their politically correct lack of respect for creative work.

It is uncreative, but brandnames sell and that is why we are going  into a 4th Thor movie or a 9th (I think?) Fast and Furious or a I-Don't-Know-How-Many James Bond movie.

I think if a person is looking for silver screen movies (which is a difficult industry to make money in if you don't play your cards right) to hold fast to some high standard of originality, they're barking up the wrong tree and bound to be disappointed.

From the beginning of the franchise James Bond has always been kind of a tool, so I would be interested to see a new one with a black female character. Skyfall was good but the other new ones were kind of meh.

Nah, it isn't not creative, traps are the trend nowadays, even tho I can't say I like them.

However, I doubt they're aiming towards the right fandom if they're doing that.

You do realize that lady Thor has been present in the comics for years now, right? In a way it's not different from Captain America passing the shield to Falcon.

One of my core arguments is on limitations to original script.

For example. Because of the matrix story line, any mainstream release involving alternate computer reality is a rip.

however methinks that lady thor film will go the way of Captain Feminism, Dykebusters and other "woke" all female garbage films of the recent years

however all the marvel soys will still gobble it up, so out of those it won't be a complete flop

Maybe. Maybe not. What I don't like is people judging a movie before seeing it. In my opinion, Captain Marvel was enjoyable. Not great, but enjoyable. And it would be even more enjoyable without all the pre-release drama. So I would like to be spared that kind of annoyance in the future. Especially, since Marvel proved being very adept at making good movies.

Look on the bright side: it'll never see the light of day. 2022 isn't going to be a time where movies are made or released, in the states. We'll be busy with something else then.

My guess is, the western world will be too busy to make any movies then, as well.

Oh, it's time for an asteroid shower to wipe out humanity?

I'm not judging yet but captain Marvel had its share of feminist cringe. Doubt this will happen here but I'm not so sure the executives have gotten the memo that woke snow is not performing well. Iz not safe yet.

It's true, you can easily google it even if your not buying the comics anymore.

Now, this is a paradox...
posted August 18, 2020 12:07 PM

The only problem with the "woke" movement is that they make themselves appear bigger and more important than they actually are.  Average Joe is gonna consume anything put it front of him, be it a good product, or bad, based on the very fact that it's a product and that it is consumable.  Angry "anti-wokers" can bomb the rewievs and rant on Youtube or 4chan, but they are just spitting against the wind.  Unless they grasp the whole problem and unless they organize and utilize their enemy's weapon to their own benefit, they won't get anywhere.
Truth is, there are no good guys here.  One group is made up of zealous socially-progressive people who do not understand that proper change is not made in the heat of the moment with one revolutionary move after another.  That's why there is outrage with every new "woke" thing that happens.  Change needs to come gradually, but more important, people need to understand that concept.  On the other hand, the "anti-wokers" are taking the other extreme where obsolete ideas become attractive again, not because they actually work, but because they are what-the-other-side-is-against-(amongst-other-things).  Imagine being unironically fascist in 21st century.  Imagine unironically supporting the institution of arranged marriage.  Imagine unironically denying certain people's rights.  Imagine unironically calling people degenerate based on the culture they belong to.  And then imagine unironically pounding yourself in the chest, acting like a beacon of morality.
That there is the problem, the fact that each side thinks they are the protagonists and the other side are "the bad guys".  Wake up sheeple.

The question is who does that outside of posting here? If you think what is posted here is actually representation of how each of us behaves in rl then you're probably in the wrong. Our posting here has as much of and effect in real life (or our everyday life) as Heroes Community has on Ubisoft's current Heroes franchise policy...

I don't have to, we have a new party and a new parliamentarian in the assembly, banking on all that and there were enough bigots in the "less racist country in Europe"* to elect him.
Is he a demagogue? Probably, but in what does that differ so much from the rest of the assembly?

@Blob2 I'll take your word for it. At the time I was buying Marvel Comics regularly Captain Marvel was a guy, then the guy died and instead of resurrecting (as usual), it was replaced with a female character.

I'd say it's more pissing against hurricane winds.
