“This is an ongoing debate that we’re still having at Marvel,” Waititi said. “‘Cause we’re trying to figure out how long — how many months or years — this is after ‘Endgame,
Although major American entities such as Apple, the National Basketball Association, and Irvine-based video game developer Blizzard Entertainment have done business with China for years, stateside discontent regarding those relationships has increased in the last few weeks in the wake of the ongoing Hong Kong protests. It’s creating a dynamic where companies have to choose between their morals and their bottom line – and growth, more often than not, wins.
Take the case of Apple. On one hand,
Paramount hosted a screening of the film with a live-performance of the score by the Hollywood Symphony Orchestra and a headlining performance by Elton John and the film’s star Taron Egerton.
John and Egerton — who is in contention for Best Actor for his portrayal of the singer as he skyrocketed to fame — kicked off their two-song set with the film’s original song, “(I’m Gonna) Love Me Again.”
The pair first publicly duetted at John’s annual AIDS Foundation Oscar Party in February, singing “Tiny Dancer” and teamed up for a surprise performance of “Rocket Man” after the film’s world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
