You and I interpret things VERY differently.

I like your optimistic viewpoint though.

He's called Black Dwarf in the comics but his name has been changed for the film to Cull Obsidian, no doubt to be politically correct and prevent any social justice warrior meltdowns.

He has superhuman strength and impenetrable skin, he will obviously have an epic brawl with Hulk at some point in the film.

I'm sure Disney changed the name to prevent any online social justice warriors protesting his name because they would have perceived it as some type of racial slur.
For example in Seattle the term "citizen" and "brown bag" are banned in some places because they are "potentially offensive”.

This is unfortunately the current climate we live in where anything can be offensive.

I can think of three other reasons to change the name off the top of my head.

1. Because you've already got Black Widow, Black Panther and the Group itself is called "The Black Order" at some point it does get a little redundant and his name is the easiest to change since he's probably not going to be a huge character in the greater scheme of things

2. Dialogue - Oh come on, can you picture Thanos calling him "The Black Dwarf" in some serious monologue about killing off all the heroes? Or even When he's telling him to do something "Black Dwarf, Go kill Iron man!" And how is Tony not going to snicker every time he says his name?

3. Out of all the names in the world, especially for a huge Alien, why is his name "Black Dwarf"? I mean I could see it as a Code Name or Moniker because of his density but as his actual name? Were the guys at Marvel drunk and tired that day and he was the last character they were naming? Just seems out of place with Characters like Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight. He really got the short end of the stick.

So those would be the reason I think the name was changed, not some off the wall conspiracy about weird people online. They may even keep the Code Name Black Dwarf and just name him Cull Obsidian.

Looks like casual mode to me. Kickin' it in his battle fatigues and combat boots without the armor.

This was my first thought too.

Luminous, stop over analyzing every post.

As for the trailer - didn't someone on this forum actually see it? I was wondering as this was not clarified - How does Thanos appear in the trailer? With or without armour?
