Stage 1: Those who leave as soon as the movie ends
Stage 2: Those who know to stay until the credits for the extra scene
Stage 3: Those who stay until the end of the credits for the second extra scene
Stage 4: Those who wait until satff kicks them out because they don’t trust Marvel and want to be sure there is no third extra scene.
I am stage four…I have Terminal Marvel Fan syndrome.
I think this was when we went to see the Avengers but, as we were getting our tickets, the cashier said: “Make sure you stay through the end of the credits.”
My wife: (incredulously) There are people who leave during the credits?!

Agent Carter brings something new and exciting to the genre. Not only is it about an awesome woman overcoming anything in her way, it proves that superhero stories can be used to deal with the tough stuff of our history.
You might be wondering why superhero comic books and films should bother with these stories. Why should they be expected to tackle these issues head on or deal with these moments in history?
Easy: because it’s important.
How many times has someone argued that mid-century America really wasn’t “so bad” for women and people of color? For men and women who felt obligated to adhere to certain gender roles? For anyone who naturally fell outside of society’s approved “lines”? How often do we hear someone wistfully yearn for a bygone era they don’t even properly understand?
Films like Agent Carter confront these narratives. Furthermore, by placing these issues within a fantasy context, we give ourselves new ways of looking at them and may even reveal important truths about ourselves.

This October, we’re hosting an event that’s going to be for one purpose, and one purpose only: making sure Marvel hears our voices and knows that we want a female led movie! From October 10th-19th, we’re going to be celebrating some of our favorite ladies: Peggy Carter, Natasha Romanoff, and Carol Danvers. Each lady will have a three day celebration event, and the 10th day will be a social media blast, letting Marvel know we want movies where #LadiesLead. So join in the tumblr appreciation fun, where we’ll have lots of new content and activities for some of your favorite ladies!
↳ What can you do?
You can sign up as an organizer, where you can make posts for categories, and you’ll be able to wear a badge during the con! The categories free for each character can be found here.
If organizing and writing posts aren’t your speed, you can still join in the fun and participate! Draw art, make gifs and crafts, post fanmixes and write meta and fic for your favorite ladies, and post them in the #Ladieslead tag on Tumblr the days of the events! Participate in the gift exchange, upload cosplay pics, participate in the Facebook events, sign up for giveaways, and participate in activities! And on the last day, tweet and post and shout why #Ladieslead is important to you. These 10 days are about showing appreciation for Peggy, Natasha, and Carol, so save the date either way.
If you’d like to sign up as an organizer, contact me here! Sign up by Saturday, October 5th.
Well, maybe I’ll just save my contest for this since the submissions and prize totally in line with this event.
i’m actually fucking crying right now
people really don’t understand what a lack of representation can do to people
But tell me again why representation is unimportant?
In where after last week being really excited at the prospect of Katie Sackhoff playing Captain Marvel/Carol Danvers in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, I’m still equally as excited.
I don’t care whether it’s true or not - let me have this fantasy!
Well, she didnt’t say she wouldn’t be playing Captain Marvel in general. ;)
