    In my experience all my Trump loving acquaintances spend half their time on Facebook complaining about how much they hate Facebook and that they're leaving Facebook, yet I still see them posting day after day, month after month, year after year....

    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.

    While Bond hasn't been lighting fires with their franchise for a long time now, I think their biggest problem isn't Jason Bourne, it's Austin Powers.  Those movies not only made a zillion dollars they skewered the Bond conventions so successfully that the people making Bond movies are afraid of using their own tropes.

    I read these words as an English sentence but they don't make sense. Everything is made for me and I'm a middle-aged White man who used to buy comics thirty years ago, so clearly Captain Marvel was made for middle-aged White men who used to buy comics thirty years ago.
     
    Or maybe it was forty? Anyway, point is, I paid my dues back when comics cost a buck and a quarter every issue, and now I'm entitled!

    B:TAS is decent, not as good as many think.  I think the high point of the 'Timm-verse' is Justice League and Justice League Unlimited.

    There is a significant advantage to a "meh" property.  You can adapt them to better appeal to the audience and/or better fit the new media.  Change Superman and there is a huge outcry.  How many people have expectations of who the Eternals are and how they will act in the movie?
     
    The success of G0tG proved that MCU can make successful movies with "below B-list" properties.  "Movies no one asked for"?  Who asked for Iron Man or Thor in the first place?  Really, what we now call "Phase 1" was a bunch of comic fans who believed they could bring characters they loved to the movies and make the audiences love them too.  They pulled it off.
