So I started this right after Captain America: The Winter Soldier came out earlier this month then got busy with a real-world thing and didn’t finish it. But now it is finished and even though the …
The article resonates strongly with me. I have been a fan of Superman since I was 5 years old. Superman was what first got me into comics and I was SO excited when I heard the franchise was getting a reboot.
It’s been a year since Man of Steel was released in the UK and I’m STILL angry about how Wrong it was. God, they could have done such great things with it but no
Anyway, this article highlights nicely why I came out of Man of Steel feeling angry but went to see Captain America: The Winter Soldier multiple times at the cinema and am now counting down the days to the blu-ray release so I can watch it again
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute – she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”

Ahh, I’m so happy with how this turned out! I really enjoyed doing this cosplay because it was something really different for me; definitely out of my comfort zone of cosplaying older men and younger boys, ahaha. I’ve been wanting to cosplay Amora since Earth’s Mightiest Heroes aired, so I’m glad I finally did! I probably won’t be wearing this again for another year, so thank you so much to tk-cosplays for getting some nice photos of me while we had the chance.

so how bitter are Black Widow fans that Peggy has her own tv show before Natasha has her own movie?
Uh, not any?
I’m pretty pleased, myself. We’re getting a PEGGY CARTER TV SHOW, how is that not awesome?
I’m excited as hell that a Peggy Carter TV show is happening, and bitter that people are trying to pit female characters and their fans against each other.
I am bitter that Ant-Man and Doctor Strange are getting movies before Natasha, but I’m thrilled about the Peggy Carter show! I will watch the hell out of it! And whaddya mean Black Widow fans and Peggy Carter fans? What if I’m a fan of both?
Why on earth do fictional women get pitted against each other? I’m thrilled that Peggy is getting a show, and I want Natasha to get a movie. I’m capable of being a fan of more than one woman in the MCU.
Being a fan of Marvel ladies is not like the rules of Highlander. There can be more than one.
Every Natasha fan I know is thrilled over the Agent Carter series. There can be both. I don’t see anyone out there saying “We want a Black WIdow- and only a Black Widow- movie.” Give us Peggy Carter, give us Black Widow, give us Captain Marvel, give us a She-Hulk legal series, whatever they got. Were we supposed to be mad that Jessica Jones got picked up for the Netflix thing, too?
Sadly, I think I know why the pitting is happening. Some of it is people doing the societal female competition thing, but I think a lot of it is unfortunately due to what we’ve been taught over and over again by a sexist media. “People won’t go see a female superhero movie” “Female superhero movies flop” ”Guys don’t want to see a female lead action show.” There is a lack of female heroines in media and it’s all because of this nonsense, so when people see one woman get to carry a tv show/movie they think the quota has been filled and get worried. Then the studios sit there and treat it as all other female roles will depend on how well this one thing does. The thinking of the her vs. her thing is that studios would neeeever give two women of Marvel the green light at once. Unfortunately they’re probably right about that at least at the movies and that’s one of the many reasons we need to make our voices heard. Say it with me!!
I love Agent Carter AND #whereismyblackwidowmovie!
This is so spot on. I thought they were sketches at first. Brava!
There are some exceptional cosplayers down in Australia. Gotta make it down there, someday.
and yeah, Australian cosplayers are amazing. They really help me push my cosplay photography to the next level and everyone I met was lovely
Prepare for trouble, and make it double! ◝(๑꒪່౪̮꒪່๑)◜
