Captain Marvel stole the spotlight on the cover of the Money section of USA Today! The paper devoted the better part of two pages to an article about the need for more superheroines in the movies. Nothing most of us didn’t already know, but it’s exciting to see it get attention!
Dear DC Comics and Marvel,
Even mainstream media is starting to go WHAT THE FRILLY HOCKEY STICKS about the lack of female leads. DO SOMETHING ABOUT THAT.
While they’ve got you thinking, maybe some non-white heroes in more prominent roles too, or do you want to wait until it’s so glaringly absurd that a national paper gets over the fear of discussing race to call you on that shit too?
Honestly, pull your heads out of your asses.

Um. Hi Faora. Gosh you’re pretty. Oh, what’s that? You’re going to kill me? Well that’d be just swell, ma’am.
I just… this movie… I can’t even.
Adi Shankar’s “all-female Expendables” project has been moving gradually closer to fruition, with Katee Sackhoff one of the first names to sign on the dotted line for the forthcoming action fest…
AHHHHHH YES. YES GOOD.
I would watch this so hard, even if it wasn’t any good.
Don’t read the comments.

She’s wearing a different more practical set of armour than in the first film, and is astride a black horse wearing its own light leather armour. She is in the middle of an encampment, and a number of Asgardian footsoldiers in their ornate helmets are visible around her. ]
YEAH SO I’M DEAD.
FIGHTING LIKE A BAMF
While it’s cool and all that Sylvester Stallone is assembling some of the coolest action stars of the past 30 years, some have asked “Where are the ladies?” People like Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, Michelle Rodriguez, Pam Grier and Lucy Liu? Well it looks like such a movie just might happen…
I’d throw Gina Torres into that mix, along with Jada Pinkett Smith and Carrie-Anne Moss

The top two thirds show a single nun with an automatic next to the tagline “With Sister Kelly on the street… the Mob don’t have a prayer.” Beneath her is the title, the credits and three more armed nuns, including one woman of colour. ]

Scarlett’s stunt trainning for her role as Black Widow in Iron Man2
“Scarlett hadn’t really done an action role.And she assured me that she would work as hard as she needed to both get in sharp and do her stunts and learn all that stuff.She spent hours and hours and hours for months.By far the most dedicated actor when it came to stunt work and the physical work.” - Jon Favreau:Director&co-star
like a fucking boss.
