Saw these over on IMDB for Disney/Marvel Captain Marvel starring Brie Larson. I guess the technical director forgot to research F-16 paint schemes since this movie is set in the 1990s.

Only Oscar winners make the cut.

Blame the USAF, they provided the aircraft. But she is an ego driver in the film...

I'm guessing that was tongue in cheek?
https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/10/media/ca ... index.html quote,"Disney's Marvel Studios' latest superhero film was unstoppable in its worldwide box office debut this weekend. "Captain Marvel" made an estimated $455 million globally." I'll definitely rent it when it's out on DVD.

I meant from a Marvel fan that went to the screener before the first weekend. They told me it was crap and ranked down there with Hulk 2003.

Is that the hook? Honestly, the only people I've seen mention it on Facebook aren't exactly my political side of the aisle let alone do I recall any but one guy ever mention any other Marvel movies. And he jabbed he was only going because his wife is forcing him. And she's kind of a moderate liberal type, which fits her as she's a teacher.

LOL why can't people just watch a movie for it's entertainment value? Unless the kid in them has died, I guess.

Tell that to the folks who wear stormtrooper uniforms year in year out to conventions.... purists would probably rather watch DC than marvel but funnily enough marvel has translated better to the screen. Just my 2.99 opinion.

Spending money on pro-SJW politics is supporting destruction of traditional values, perhaps? Your choice of actor is pretty vocal politically and her message is poisonous to children. But that's besides the point of adding needless politics into Marvel Comics Universe. When writers went on strike in the 80s we had the best MCU writing. But Stan Lee was forced to capitulate eventually and politics steadily eroded storylines. At least DC is bringing Captain Marvel/Shazam back closer to the original...

No need to be so drama. Agree with Popcorn, just watch for its entertainment value.

Slightly off topic,
But in the film which supposedly took place in 1995. There is a shot with a Raptor. The 1st one was rolled out in 1997 so this was 2 years too early. But since it was a top secret base, they could have had a mock up already of the Raptor right?

However my question is, when was the design of the production F-22 finalized? would it be possible to make an accurate mockup back in 1995?

Zero-one, I use to have an issue of Air Force Mag with an artists impression of a production F-22. It was from about mid 1994 I believe. And that pic was near 100% spot on to what it looks like today.
