>>3317177Oh boy, Endgame really isn't kind to Stucky shippers.
SPOILERS AHEADJust saw it. Liked it fine but it wasn't as good as IW. I projectile vomited at the gurl power scene.Pretty disappointed as a Stucky fan, even though I wasn't expecting much. They were pushing Steve/Peggy pretty hard even though nobody really cares about her. They did this because they needed a reason for Captain America's story to be definitively finished and decided that having him live out his life in the past was a good way to do it. At the end when they all showed up, Bucky just appeared like a normal background character with no significance to Steve. Hell, Steve seemed happier to see Black Panther than him. At least they had that one moment before Steve got into the time machine, but then it was Sam who talked to Steve after while Bucky just stood back? The Russos were the ones who built up the Steve/Bucky relationship in the first place across multiple films where Steve sacrificed everything for Bucky multiple times. I don't know why they just let it fizzle out in this one.If Steve had given his shield to Sam and made it clear that he was finished, then drove off with Bucky, that would've been the perfect ending for him.I'm aware that a lot of tumblrettes are sperging out about this right now, but for once I think I agree with them.
>>3321572Thank you, anon. These are my exact thoughts.It actually hurts me more than I care to admit
>>3321572What gurl power scene?
>>3322572They're talking about the part where captain marvel has the gauntlet and is joined by every other female hero to force their way through thanos army I personally just found it amusing, it's very corny
It hurts, bros..

>>3323539Why are you like this?
>>3323539Never expected it to actually happen and anyone who did has no ground in reality. But it was a fun ride and I’m still enjoying it.
>>3321572Technically Markus and McFeely did since they worked on the first movie that the Russos had nothing to do with.It's my fave Avengers movie and I didn't /hate/ the ending but I do wish they got one last chat at the end when Steve returned. I'm a multishipper and gen lover so tfw not canon doesn't bother me at all. I like platonic Stucky too. And I look forward to a whole show of Bucky/Sam. But even if it would've likely killed the ship even further these two guys who grew up like brothers merited proper resolution plus clarification of the many confusing things about the ending, especially since the directors and writers can't seem to make up their minds on it. They might discuss this in the upcoming Falcon/Winter Soldier show but I doubt it. I hope Sam and Bucky at least get to mention Steve doing things offscreen and they don't bury him ungracefully.It's like they were afraid of all the shippers they attracted and backpedaled because they thought feeding them would accentuate the backlash when they inevitably couldn't deliver. Except shippers who actually get mad purely because their OTP died represent a minority. Many of them, especially Asian fujos, like it ambiguous and cared more about them interacting than being canon. They pulled back too hard since the official narrative was still that these two were besties and brothers that it caused whiplash and people noticed. "Why didn't these two talk more?" was a pretty common complaint among everyone in my circles including the Stony and nonshipper fans because they remembered how important Bucky was for three movies even with Peggy in the picture.Steve/Peggy is the one canon MCU romance I love. But the bittersweet tragedy was what made it so beautiful. She learned to move on, he couldn't. That was a bold characterization move, so him getting to have his cake and eat it too is sweet but cheap and less interesting, even if actor contracts meant they couldn't actually dig into that angle.
Oh and I'm not super crazy about how dismissive the Russos seem of Bucky. I don't think they hate him per se, I won't screech about how mean they are to him for it, but it does make them seem like they see him as more of a walking plot point than a character. Which kinda sucks because I like him, but would explain a lot. In general the mediascape don't seem to be as understanding of or interested in tackling traumatized male characters, especially ones that have been directly victimized. You mostly see that sort of empathy coming from fandom. So there's a mismatch.
I’m desperate for any lewd Steve art. Bonus points if he seems innocent in it.
>>3326773All the other ones I have are too lewd for this board.
