Marvel's making a Captain Marvel movie, ignoring the fact that the current Ms. Marvel is Pakistani and has the highest selling comic book on Amazon. Brown girls have been screaming for a Ms. Marvel movie but we don't get it. For Hollywood, brown girl support isn't enough and we don't have the support of enough white women to get a Ms. Marvel movie. It's super sad.
For a second i thought you were talking about Shazam from DC Universe…and I was so confused….I had to look up Captain Marvel from Marvel Universe, not from DC…okay, that whole part is irrelevant XD.
Have they set out the cast list? Are we sure that she’s going to be a blonde white woman? I think they need to realize that current Ms. Marvel, who is a brown woman of color, is getting them the most money and is the most successful. Hopefully, they’ll respectfully search for a woman that matches that description because it would be terrible if they didn’t.
And honestly, I’m kind of upset that I didn’t know that much about Ms. Marvel—marvel needs to do a better job at advertising more. And by that, I mean giving her a movie with a Pakistani woman to play her—not a white woman.
I can’t even imagine why they’d think it’s okay getting a white woman to play her—it isn’t revolutionary, and it’s just disrespectful to the current Ms. Marvel.
