Is it intentional that there are exactly half on each side, or did they leave some characters out to make that work?

Nolan fans before and after pretty much every single Marvel film:

Eh, bleh, who cares about any of this? These trailers are terrible. Oscar? Political propaganda. Critics top ten list? So overrated. Massive audience endorsement? Completely meaningless.


Also Nolan fans:

To tell you the truth, this superhero fatigue is finally catching up with me. I'm so done after Endgame. You know, I was really on board until now, but Feige is going to lose me now.


OK, I guess.£
There’s definitely a bit of a hive mind mentality here. It depends on who says what first, and then you see people parroting different variations of the same opinion over and over again.

Personally I’m super stoked for this, and I am stoked to see what they’ll bring afterwards. Maybe that’s cuz I barely spent that much time thinking about Endgame after IW so as to not lose my head ahead of time, but I’m not fatigued whatsoever. If I felt overwhelmed by these films I would just stop watching them lol. If you were constantly exposed to the CBM communities/fandoms/pop culture, then I can understand why that could feel like a lot (because it is), but no one is forcing you do to anything you don’t want to.

I stopped going to those parts of the internet because it just became way too much. I want to be excited for these types of huge hype event films and not approach them with a sourpuss attitude.

Since I removed myself from all that, I'm legit hyped for Shazam now and I'll def be seeing Endgame.

Is it Nolan fans specifically who share this sentiment, or is it a particular segment of the audience who feel that way? Also, this sounds more like what people have said about Black Panther than MCU as a whole. And those who said that were MCU fans, for the most part. On the opposite, I'd say this sounds more like what a lot of MCU cultists say about Nolan and The Dark Knight trilogy. Go to comicbookmovie threads. Every time there's a mention of Nolan or his trilogy, ten or more people come out of their woodwork to announce how Nolan is an overrated hack and his Batman movies are not good and so on.
Also Nolan fans:

I've seen this sentiment being expressed more by the MCU fans than Nolan fans. Go to YouTube. People who made all of those anti-Captain Marvel videos were the ones who expressed this sentiment, by always prefixing that they were MCU fans since the beginning, but they will be done with the franchise after Endgame because of characters like Captain Marvel becoming the new face of the MCU. You're attributing to us something that we didn't start.

All character posters:

44% white male with 22% having been leads in standalone films.
22% poc or mixed race male with 3% having been leads in standalone films.
19% white female with 6% having been leads in standalone films.
15% poc or mixed race female with 0% having been leads in standalone films.


Calculating......nope, diversity not achieved.£

Post that on Twitter and we’ll have a new riot in 3, 2, 1...

At least the cinematic world is changing for the better, you can’t expect these things to just flip over night. Not to mention how a lot of these characters can never hope to get a standalone movies due to their niche cb history. Valkyre is only now getting a standalone etc.

Flip over a night? They are making movies for over a century. First major superhero film came out 40 years ago. We are 11 years into MCU.

Exactly. And every time someone speaks about changing the race or gender of those characters, people would jump in to shout, how dare you? You take away the masculinity and whiteness of my character and then there is nothing left. Go make your own original characters.£
