"Diversity will be [the] gold standard" at Marvel

Bounding Into ComicsAvengers: Endgame director Joe Russo declared that the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films “will be an inclusive one.”

In a wide-ranging article focused on Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige from Variety, Avengers: Endgame director Joe Russo discussed the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Russo noted, “The future of these movies will be an inclusive one. He added, “Diversity, both in front of and behind the camera, will be its gold standard.”

Russo’s comment echoes what Kevin Feige has been telling fans for quite a while. All the way back in 2017, Feige hinted at the possibility of bringing a female Thor to the big screen

Shark, jumped.
There's nothing wrong with "Diversity" or "Inclusion" in movies. I'm perfectly fine with black heroes, female heroes, asian heroes, even Canadian heroes. But when you stop focusing on telling a good story and making a good movie to focus on race or gender tokenism and "woke" politics, you end up ruining your stories and likely offending large fractions of your audience.
