Well, I mentioned in my original post I have my suspicions, it’s just unusual to see Marvel out and out sideline the “star” in her own sequel. Cavill nearly got the same treatment, although no official MOS sequel ever happened, but for vastly different reasons.Come on…you know why
How can Carol Danvers possibly have her ears pierced? Her superhuman ears would instantly snap the tiny metal studs off the earrings and immediately heal. There's no way she would be able to maintain her piercings.
In the short time that she was carrying the gauntlet in End Game she used the power of the stones to pierce her ears.
Unless she had pierced ears before that in which case I don't care lol
Pierced ears can ruin immersion in movies for me.
Like in "The Matrix" when they awaken Neo in the real world. You can clearly see either an actual earring hole or a scar from a long ago piercing. I remember being in the theater thinking...."hey...he's been in a pod of goo his entire life. When would he ever have gotten an earring?" My brain started pondering and it took me out of the movie for a few minutes.
I retconned it in my head by saying it was a probe/health scan the machines did occasionally and they do it with a tiny needle in the earlobe.
That justification allowed me to sleep that night.
I'm so sick in the head.
