Kamala Khan killed?Daily Dot

Characterizing Kamala’s death as sexist, racist, and exploitative, detractors pointed the finger at Amazing Spider-Man writer Zeb Wells (who had already attracted accusations of sexist storytelling in earlier comics) and Marvel’s Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski (a divisive figure due to his history of adopting a fake Japanese persona). Some also expressed concern about Zeb Wells’ role as co-writer of The Marvels, the upcoming Captain Marvel movie featuring Kamala Khan.

Indiana Jones .... "a meandering yawn"UK Times [Paywall]

The good news is that it’s not as poor as Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The bad news is that it’s not much better. A meandering, frequently enervating yawn, this fifth and most expensive Indy outing yet (about $300 million) is a curious demonstration of how a Hollywood studio can fire nearly a third of a billion bucks at late 20th century nostalgia and get it so wrong.

The qualities of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny will be evident when it releases on June 30, 2023, but the reflexive kick at Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull isn't reflected in the box office record, in 2008 it was the number three domestic earner, so its safe to say plenty of people in the USA liked the movie:

  1. The Dark Knight – $530,924,926
  2. Iron Man – $318,313,199
  3. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – $317,101,119

And then when you look at the international numbers for 2008,only Bruce Wayne came out ahead in box office moola:

  1. The Dark Knight – $997,000,000
  2. Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull – $790,653,942
  3. Kung Fu Panda – $631,744,560
  4. Hancock – $629,443,428
  5. Mamma Mia! – $609,841,637
  6. Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa – $603,900,354
  7. Quantum of Solace– $589,580,482
  8. Iron Man – $585,796,247
  9. WALL-E – $521,311,860
  10. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian – $419,665,568

Doesn't look like a comic book art display to me, more of a pop-art approach derived from comics, but even then its not remotely the equivalent of a Roy Lichtenstein comic book derived artwork.
