    If you have developed the bad habit of liking good bread with olive oil and basalmic vinegar, then you already know that you need the good stuff (in all three components) for that.

    I'll just wait for each movie to come out and judge each on their own.

    The TV shows aren't as big of a financial risk (as blockbuster movies), and the first three all lean more heavily into the currency of being known and accepted franchises than they do into their wokeness. Throwing in a bit of diversity here and there costs them nothing. However, you can expect the budget of a show like Ms. Marvel to be smaller than the others because of the higher risk it entails. And if it doesn't pull its weight in terms of bringing in subscribers to Disney+, don't expect to see a second season. Subscriber numbers are far more important to Feige's corporate overlords than how many brownie points a show scores with SJWs.
     
    Black Panther and Captain Marvel were risks, roughly on par with giving Guardians of the Galaxy a try, and they went into production despite their wokeness, not because of it. They were expected to deliver on other more important strategic goals (i.e., as final pieces of the Phase 3/Infinity War puzzle and, in the case of Capt. Marvel, as setup for Secret Invasion). Had Black Panther not done as well as it did at the box office, we wouldn't be talking about its sequel today since its most important function had already been served by the time of Endgame. Disney is willing to play the PR game of appealing to the social agenda of the moment, but only so long as it doesn't interfere with their larger financial considerations.

    On the bright side, think of all the free time you'll have by not having to worry about Marvel.

    I saw the 'she's got help' scene in Endgame for what it was.  A fan-service moment for female fans in a movie full of fan service moments.

    That scene in the first Avengers movie had only one woman in it. If there had been no women, no one would have said boo.
