    Sounds like Disney is ready for Solo to flop. Therefore, I doubt there will be any pressure put on reviewers.

    Solo won't get glowing remarks, but you will read stuff like "popcorn movie", "Light hearted romp compared to...", and "Disney will learn from this to prepare for the next origin story for Boba Fett."

    Oh they'll try to wash, dry, and put a nice wax job on that explosive diarrhea on a screen Disney will call a movie.

    Watch them.

    Blade didn't really lean on its character being black. He just happened to be black. BP heavily relies on his identity being African, so people tend to ignore the past with Blade and Spawn. Both vastly superior characters imo.

    Ill see this though. I like the actors, and they made BP pretty badass in the fight scenes of previous Marvel flicks. The music throughout is annoying though. From what ive heard in trailers and such.

    This is the huge problem with the virtual monopoly disney now has on the market in terms of big-budget superhero movies, i.e. marvel, star wars, etc.
    With less competition in those spheres, the critics are forced to play ball.

    Don't forget all of Fox's properties.

    Whenever their streaming service gets going, and offers more than what Netflix could ever hope to compete against, after another few years Disney may buyout Netflix.

    Wouldn't be surprised is DC Comics would be next on Disney's hitlist.

    Gladiator leaned heavily on the people being Romans. Viking movies lean heavily on them being Scandinavians. 300 the Greeks and Persians.

    Ethnicity is key when the ethnicity is key. Its as simple as that. In Blade it had no meaning. In this movie it is clear why ethnicity MUST be featured and that should shock no one just as it should not in a Viking movie.

    Yeah, the character relies on a racial identity. I know. Doesn't take away from the fact that people don't know what they are talking about when they say it is the first black super hero movie. Simple as that.

    Ya I hear ya.

    it would be better to say it is the first film in this comic sphere where the racial identity is key to the story plotline and that is something worth considering in this context.
