the only thing that pisses me off about guardians is that a raccoon and a tree will get more screen time than sif
ugh this is so true.
i’m going to go break things now.
ON WEDNESDAY, Marvel Comics will debut its relaunch of Ms. Marvel — in which she’s introduced as a Muslim American teenager from Jersey City — as part of a broader women’s initiative that the publisher is calling “Characters and Creators.”
With tomorrow’s debut of Kamala Khan, Marvel Comics seeks a greater diversity of readers. As part of the initiative, Black Widow, Elektra and She-Hulk will be spotlighted in their own books, and X-Men and Captain Marvel will see a new emphasis on women.
Even as Ms. Marvel takes a big step forward for diversity in comics, the “Characters and Creators” initiative has broader implications, as it aims to speak directly to an audience that long was not the target for superhero comic books in America: women and girls.
Axel Alonso, Marvel’s editor-in-chief, tells Comic Riffs that the stars of these new books “are not the big-breasted, scantily clad women that perhaps have become the comic-book cliché. They are women with rich interior lives, interesting careers and complicated families who are defined by many things—least of all their looks.”
I WANT A NEW SIF TITLE TOO DAMMIT.
Like, I love the MCU Bucky/Steve relationship, which is nothing like the comics in most respects, but then they do shit like make Scott Lang Ant Man in a movie about Ultron that includes Hank Pym, but Hank is suddenly old and Janet is his daughter and not his wife.
I respect that from the beginning the MCU never set out to be pure comics adaptations, but some of the things they’re doing make my head spin.
So just look at it this way:
MCU is just fanfiction.
Beautiful, huge, expensive fanfiction.

Just in case you missed this on twitter yesterday. Marvel and Star Wars are at it!
Hey, do you know any place where people can rage-ly protest/ ask about the Black Widow Movie? ´Cause I can´t see the future Marvel problems without getting pissed that none of them is about Black Widow (or any other superheroine).
Well, there’s the MCU equivalent of this blog, and then someone awesome asked Joe Quesada where her Black Widow movie was at NYCC. So I definitely recommend people keep doing that. But maybe we need a special tumblr project just collecting all the fan desire I see here in one place.
There’s also this petition for a Marvel superheroine movie that stands at a whopping 60 signatures.
When asked about it Kevin Feige said, “it depends on your definition of “soon.” we’ve already announced the movies through the end of 2015, so it certainly won’t be before that, but we’re actively working on it, and every country we go into, people ask us about it. so that means it’s a good thing, it means the fans are asking for it, which just makes it easier for us to get approvals and the green light to go forward and actually make one.”
Kevin Feige has been very involved in the promotional tours for the Marvel films, and a lot of the interviews he’s done have been centered around fan-submitted questions, often from twitter. With promo for Cap 2 just around the corner, there should be quite a few opportunities to question Marvel about our Black Widow movie.
Bug ‘em ‘til they make one, basically.
In order to celebrate International Women’s Day, enjoy some amazing Marvel women!
