Love how much more diversity is noisily breaking into the comic book and superhero world!
Marvel Is Making An Animated Movie Full Of Diverse Superheroes
I really think it was a mistake for Marvel to make the Asgardians space aliens instead of actual gods. I’m just curious: does anyone agree?
I didn’t mind Marvel making them space aliens, so much as I minded them going “oooOOOooo, nothing is magic, everything is super advanced science ooooo”.
Like, that took a LOT away from what made Asgard/Jotunheimr/other realms so interesting – they can do these amazing, advanced things with magic, but are otherwise limited by social constructs and other rules/limitations set in place for seidr. To just hand-wave away all of that world-building potential as “advanced science too advanced for puny Midgardian minds to understand” was a MAJOR mistake in my opinion, if only bc that makes them so much more boring and flat in a universe where magic-like science already exists with Wakanda, or Stark Industries.
Or Dr. Strange. Yes.
I think maybe at that point they didn’t realize just how much the cinematic universe was going to expand and made a bad call.
Marvel Cinematic Universe Rotten Tomatoes scores (average 82.3125%)
TDW’s score is 66 points higher than it should be, but I’m relieved to see that the really good Marvel movies have higher ratings than the bad ones, with the exception of the horrific Civil War. And that recent movies seem to be better; maybe axing Perlmutter is having an effect.
