I’m getting right proper fed up with this trend of killing the heroes for the blatant emotional manipulation in Science Fiction/Fantasy movies

Wonder Woman
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
Star Wars: Rogue One
et cetera

I don’t go to see Science Fiction/Fantasy movies to be miserable, I get enough of that in real life. I go to suspend belief, see the good guys win/bad guys lose and enjoy myself.

In WW's defense, that was in the source material; it was canon, and most of the people I know who are fans of the comic books were very glad that the movie followed through with Steve's death. Doesn't make it any easier to watch or deal with the manipulation, though.

Though going back to Carson's death in SGA, why they think we need a character's death to make the story "real" or give it "punch", I have no idea. Do any of these folks live in reality?

Yeah, I've been sad about this too. And the parallels with another Steve and a plane... :(

But, maybe this helps a bit?
