You know, I’ve been thinking about this “Carol’s powers are too vague for them to be fun in a film” argument, and I’m starting to see Whedon’s point:
I mean, she’s only a soldier (pilot, whatever) with super human strength who can hit things really hard like Captain America. And I mean, sure, she can can fly unaided like Thor but that’s boring and totally useless. Also, why would you want to make a movie about an alien hybrid like Peter Quill? It’s all utterly incomprehensible, which is why none of those guys have ever gotten movies either.
