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.

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.
