    Arguing back and forth over feminism, that’s how.

    considering how the movie is devoid of any feminism that is amusing

    I wouldn’t say there isn’t ANY “feminism” in the movie, but certainly not to the extent all the man babies were biting their nails fretting over.

    I assume it was more a wink wink towards those who know the comics and what SHIELD stands for, I went into Iron Man not having read a single Comic Book in my life, and when Coulson said 'Just call us Shield' one guy in the cinema chuckled, and the rest went... "who?"

    I'm okay with that. Winks to those who are familiar with the material are fine.

    What I am wondering is how fast Fury must have climbed the ranks in Shield. He goes from Level 3 access in the early to mid 90es to director of Shield in... what, 10 years?

    he probably did some impressive work; we know he rescued Alexander Pierce at some point and while we don't know what rank Pierce was he did seem older than Fury so probably higher rank and so could've fast tracked him to the Director post. either that, or Pierce used his HYDRA contacts, legitimately or otherwise, to make sure that Fury got the top job because Pierce could control Fury somewhat.

    the closest they got, at least in my opinion, was a small montage of Danvers struggling to do stuff and persevering and the song "Just A Girl". so literally nothing

    Eh. There was also the “cockpit” line, and the subversion of the Mar-Vell reveal (Mar-Vell is male in the comics so, admittedly, this hit the comic fans most). And then all the stuff about a woman having to control herself (a running trope in fiction [especially superhero comics] being that women with incredible power go crazy and villainous).

    Again, none of this hits you in the head with a sledgehammer. Definitely tamer than what certain folk were clutching their pearls about.

    He was teased in the end credits of Guardians vol 2. But yeah, I doubt he'll be involved.

    They name-check comics events and capture some of their spirit but the details are all different. Comics Civil War was almost nothing like MCU Civil War for example. I expect they'll do their own thing in Endgame with only the occasional reference.

    Debateable I suppose. Thor took a collapsing star to the face in Infinity War.
