He's a member of a church that is explicitly homophobic, so it's not exactly a leap to assume he at minimum doesn't care about gay people.

He disagrees with that claim and says he isn't in any way homo or transphobic. From a brief search it seemed a couple of high-up members of the church made homophobic remarks a few years ago but I don't think there is any proof that those views represent the church. In fact it wasn't even members of his church. It was members of Hilltop church, that his church is modelled on. So there is even more of a disconnect there.

It was clear he was doing interspecies sex on his spaceship in Guardians 1 so being bisexual is probably the least of it. I wish Marvel would explore the more seedy side of the MCU like that robot prossy planet in Guardians 2 and whatever the Grandmaster was into, Benicio Del Toro had alien women and ducks and Tobias Funke in display tanks! When is that story coming to Disney +?

Does his bisexuality play into his arc in any way or is it just a meaningless bit of pandering?

The brief summary I've heard is he stays on some planet with a couple for 100+ years, and about seven years in joins the couple to form a polyamourous triple. So it's not just one scene with him kissing a bloke, it is part of a story.

Comics history aside, why wouldn't Nick Fury still be played by Samuel L. Jackson?

Marvel race-swapped Nick Fury to Sam Jackson in 2002, so a 90s version would be white. But I see what you mean, Jackson was a very famous actor in the 90s.

Also lots of those picks had their heyday in the 80s rather than the 90s.

And Pitt wouldn't have worked as Captain America.

Would Hanks have been able to pull it off, or would the physique have been a problem?

I can't imagine Hanks in the role. Maybe Kevin Costner.

Joe Pesci as Rocket is spot on, as he was apparently Bradley Cooper's inspiration. Then again, the character is supposed to have a Cockley accent, so he should have been voiced by Bob Hoskins.

Arnie as Drax seems a duff bit of casting - not sure he'd look at all convincing doing fight scenes, for example. Would be best to go with some top wrestler (not Hulk Hogan) of the time. Would have said Randy Savage, but doubt he could ever dial it down the required notches. Or even just a little bit.

Roddy Piper. His performance in They Live is a good match.

It would have been a few years too early for it, but The Rock right at the start of his acting career (so, c. 2000/1 when he was in The Mummy 2, and ST:Voyager) would have made for a good Drax, I think.

True. Bret Hart had the humourless nature right, but not quite the physical size required.

THE LAST SUPERHERO !

I love these kinds of Wiki pages.
Quote
Differences from the comics
In comics, Dugan has red hair, mustache and a bowler hat. None are present in the movie.
Gabe Jones' character was combined with Sidney "The Gaffer" Levine who was the S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist in the comics.
Kate Neville is an ESPer, unlike in the comics.
Alexander Pierce is British, whereas, in the comics, he is American.
Gail Runciter is an agent of Interpol, as opposed to being a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, like in the comics.
HYDRA agents appear with black Men in Black-type suits, rather than the green uniform from the comics.
Andrea's twin brother, Andreas, did not appear, but Andrea did have a younger brother named Werner (in the comics the twins had an older half-brother named Werner).
Andrea was codenamed "Viper".
Dr. Arnim Zola appears as an elderly HYDRA chemist responsible for the creation of the Death's Head virus.
Baron Strucker's body is shown frozen in a chamber; in the final scene of the movie, Baron Strucker is brought back to life.

There must have been lines around the block at Best Buy stores on that day.

New Black Widow trailer.

Brief appearance by Ray Winstone there (I think you could glimpse his back in a previous trailer).

Is Chloe Zhao still stuck directing one of these now that she is likely to win a boatload of Oscars?

Yes, they're hiring someone else to reshoot the finished film. She approached the studio to direct, rather than it being a work for hire job.

Nomadland is fucking mint, mind you. I've only heard great things about her earlier films, too.

I think it's a sly joke about the fact that Zhao can't still be 'stuck directing' a film that is by all reports basically finished and ready to go
