BLACK WIDOW - Trailer #1

“One of the most valuable skills in espionage. You can gear up with the best swag out there– Put on camo, tech, weaponry… But it is the unteachable skill to belong anywhere. The other edge of what is the unfortunate truth: You must first belong nowhere.”

    Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff
    Natalie Dormer as Yelena Belova
    Nicole Beharie as Monica Rambeau/Photon
    Osric Chau as Amadeus Cho

So Ava DuVernay (the director of Selma) reportedly met with Marvel this week to discuss the possibility of directing one of Marvel’s upcoming movies. While Black Panther is an obvious choice,  why not Captain Marvel? Especially since Captain Marvel doesn’t necessarily have to be Carol Danvers – she can be Monica Rambeau!

Pictured: Uzo Aduba, Nicole Beharie, Nathalie Emmanuel, Taraji P. Henson, Viola Davis, Gina Torres (if I can’t have her as Wonder Woman I want her as a Captain Marvel, damn it).


Spectrum (Monica Rambeau)  //  Marvel Comics  

“One of the most powerful people walking around the Marvel universe is Monica Rambeau, a dark-skinned woman of color that’s been in the game for years. Recently she has become more of a household name, with her leading the latest incarnation of Mighty Avengers. 

Those in the know, know she doesn’t take any shit. Monica Rambeau is somewhere between the Rihanna and the Jean Grae of Marvel. She strokes no egos, calls you on your shit, and is written with the sharpest of wit/ sarcasm (and not in the sassy Black friend way, ever). She has been a leader of The Avengers, has one of the most powerful abilities around, and has been rocking her hair natural for years (more on that later).

 Monica is one of the best to ever do for women of color in comics when it comes to representation. So let’s get more acquainted with Monica Rambeau…”

When it comes to powerful women of color in Marvel, nah fuck that comics in general, y’all goin’ start giving my girl Monica Rambeau the respect she deserves  - Omar Holmon

Captain Marvel #2 - Speaking Without Concern (1994)

Story: Dwayne McDuffie & Dwight D. Coye, art: M.D. Bright

“…I speak without concern for the accusations
that I am too much or too little woman
that I am too black or too white
or too much myself
and through my lips come the voices
of the ghosts of our ancestors
living and moving among us…"

MCU Ladies Week: Day #7 - The Future

I need origin movies involving female bad-asses and I need them now. I need to see Monica Rambeau evolving into Captain Marvel, I need to see Sif struggling to prove herself on the battleplanes of Asgard and for the love of god, I need Natasha Romanoff’s back story, from Red Room to Clint Barton to Budapest. And I need every single one of them to be ‘coming soon’.
