After watching Us for the second time, I realised one problem I have with Endgame: where the hell is Lupita from the poster and cast list?

Wasn't she busy building up Wakandan outreach in California?  Doesn't seem like there would have been time to bring her to Wakanda, and while formidable she was hardly the only formidable Wakandan woman on that field.

True, but Nakia is the only major character missing from the movies who is not confirmed dusted or simply dead. Meanwhile Happy Hogan (Stark's driver) is there, which is fine but he isn't exactly on the same level.

Has Scott Lang's family been confirmed dusted?  His daughter is pretty major and her dusting would drastically change Scott's tone for the movie I'd imagine.  At any rate, I'm with you that it'd be weird to completely ignore Nakia until Black Panther 2, but I guess the reality is that there's only so many distraught people trying to bring back their loved ones stories they can fit in there.

I don't think there has been anything about Lang's ex and daughter.

I think Nakia would have been an interesting addition, as her relationship dynamics with T'Challa are rather unique. It's not even like there are that many couples separated by the snap, the only one I can think of is Ant Man and Wasp and they are from the filler roster.

Actually, now that I think about it, it is weird how few actually consequential snap-separations of major relationships are out there, the only I can think of are Cap-Bucky and Stark-Peter Parker. The rest are either alive or dusted together.

I don't count Thor-Loki, because Loki was snapped in a very different way (though he is on the poster)

I'm not saying I wouldn't like to see it, I'm just saying I can understand why it might not be a priority with everything else going on.  I'm content to wait and see how they handle everything before worrying too much about what may or may not be in the film.

Something I don't understand abut Aquaman is the end game of Orm was.

No matter what you do, you will have a very pissed off Kryptonian and Demi-God you have to contend with.

Just watched it again for the first repeat viewing. The plot is much less coherent than on first viewing. That's ok - it's good enough to suspend disbelief easily enough. TBH I don't think that Orm gave a shit about Supes or Wonder Woman.

Until Sups singled handedly takes out your entire force?

He can be beaten. It just takes a lot.

The more I think about Robert Pattinson for Batman, the more I think he would be fine. The guy has done some amazing acting since Twilight.
Its all down to the movie thats built around him I think. But I would still prefer Gyllenhal.

I think I'd prefer Gyllenhaal too. He'd play the hell out of a troubled Bruce Wayne. I'm really not familiar with Pattinson's work, though, so it isn't a strong preference.

I highly recommend the movie Good Time as an example of what he is capable of.
I dont think it would be very hard to present him as a late 20s Bruce Wayne.
Nicholas Holt is the other name that has been thrown around and I dont quite think he has the chops for it. Im sure he would be fine but it would feel like a missed opportunity to me.

I haven't seen him in anything at all, but from what I've read it sounds like he is a good actor.

Yep - thus my focus on Bruce instead of the suit.
