She was in it, but her characters name was Yashar... I don't think she was Latina...
Didn't watch it long enough to hear her name.

Teenage audience fodder. Nothing new there.

From what I can tell, we have no reason to fear that the SJW era of Marvel comics will bleed into the movie. Just look at her design. It's based on her iconic, original appearance, not her more recent redesign. That just goes to show which era of comics the directors have been studying for reference. I actually was more concerned with the Wonder Woman movie, since the character seemed to be a confusingly mixed bag of feminism and male fantasy. From what I've heard, though, the Wonder Woman movie was pretty tame with its feminist undertones, to the point that it apparently irritated SJWs. If DC can do a movie about a female superhero right, then Marvel sure as hell can.

thats a point, they are sticking to the most popular original concept in design. From the movie, I'm getting a weird kind of green lantern vide from it, in how they movie played out, but with a more serious tone. I dunno if it suits the character since the original character seemed to crack a smile at least.

Eh, I was really not a big fan of that scene. It'd be like if in Infinity War, Captain Marvel just suddenly dropped out of the sky and blasted Thanos a mile away. I could just imagine Captain America saying, "That's for the assist. Good work. By the way, who the heck are you?"
That's what I liked about the scene.  I also had the "Where did she come from reaction."  "I thought she was with you," got an unusually robust LOL from me, because no one, including me, expected her to show up.  She wasn't a complete unknown to Superman or Batman, but neither knew enough about her personal life or relationships.  So the two guys with all their super duper powers just stood there in a state of befuddled ignorance, while she was doing all the work.  I don't see why that's not funny.

Probably because it's a squad of supers wearing identical costumes patrolling outer space.

The original Captain Marvel was (I think) a "Sazaam-a-boy-becomes-superhero".  Then in Marvel,  a member of the minority "Pinks"  among the Blue Krees come to Earth to fight them.  I lose track after that.  Is Miss Marvel a "Supergirl" to "Superman" or is she Captain Marvel redifined?  Or entirely separate?

Well, I was going to argue about it, but you are right about the DC/Marvel difference of the characters.  But still, what about Captain and Miss Marvel in the Marvel comics?
