    Because Marvel isn't that invested in their movie villains beyond a few? I mean, Starforce were just there to look cool and get beat up by Carol at the end.

    It just occurred to me; if Jolie had been cast as Sersi instead of Thena, then Chan, who played Minn-Erva, could then play Thena. Minn-Erva… Minerva… Athena… Thena.

    Yeah, they've gotten rid of every single villain except for the Vulture.

    I do wish they would slow down on killing off the villains. My dream of seeing some sort of Masters of Evil or Thunderbolts on the big screen ain't gonna happen if they're killing off every villain who isn't Thors brother. There are a few more than that... but my point being the kill rate for the villains, especially early on in the MCU, was surprisingly high.

    I'd dig Chan as Sersi. That's more in-line with how I'd hoped they'd cast the character than Jolie. It'll be a little strange to have her doubling up as Minn-Erva and another role, sure, but I can roll with it.

    Personally, for a Thunderbolts movie, I don't think you need the villains to be pre-established characters, except for Zemo. And Zemo is still around! I'm hoping the Falcon/Winter Soldier series lays some groundwork for Zemo going the Tbolts route.
