I am always going to love Marvel. They were my first comic books, I panted with the masses at midnight premieres, and I’ve parked myself on my couch for every show. When it comes to comics and to television, they have characters that are widely identified with because they represent more than one small subset of humanity.
But when it comes to their films? There are so few characters to whom I as a woman, and that anyone else that doesn’t fit the specific checklist of white, straight, and male, can actually relate.
DC? They are killing it. That diversity that all of us want so much for the Marvel Cinematic Universe is not only being promised over at DC, but being delivered. We have Gal Gadot with her own Wonder Woman movie, we have four women and more than one POC playing leads in Suicide Squad, we have Jason Mamoa as Aquaman, Dwayne Johnson in Shazam!, and we have Ray Fisher as Cyborg. With Marvel, all we have to look forward to, in the 13 films slated to be released before 2020, are two movies led by someone who is not both white and male.
I may always love Marvel, but I’m starting to love DC. They’re the ones who deserve it right now.
omggg a rubentus supporter (one of those people that wish napoletani’s death) said ‘shame on you’ because napoli support real madrid… OMGGGG I’M SO SORRYYYYY I SHOULD SUPPORT CALCIOPOLI TRIPLETE MAYBE :’)
It’s a lovely feeling when you find out about something and it just fits perfectly with your character
Like I just found out about Eid and henna and that just fits so perfectly with my artistic muslim character! I can imagine Aisha being super into making them for herself and maybe her siblings too ♡ And she’s, like, totally taking a ton of Eid selfies
People talk about Tumblr vs the Real World but, I dunno. The last party I went to I met a pansexual woman who was dating someone agender, she glitter-boated me (motor boat but there is glitter in your cleavage so their face gets glittery) and then she, I and a bunch of other people started talking about consent education and the importance of teaching kids to have physical boundaries.
This was while a bunch of white dudes with long hair head banged and sung along out loud to Rammstein and Slipknot and a few random puppies wandered through.
