You know, I’ve been thinking about this “Carol’s powers are too vague for them to be fun in a film” argument, and I’m starting to see Whedon’s point:
I mean, she’s only a soldier (pilot, whatever) with super human strength who can hit things really hard like Captain America. And I mean, sure, she can can fly unaided like Thor but that’s boring and totally useless. Also, why would you want to make a movie about an alien hybrid like Peter Quill? It’s all utterly incomprehensible, which is why none of those guys have ever gotten movies either.
Kelly Sue: “Captain Marvel can punch through a fucking planet. The challenge is to put her in situations she can’t solve by punching.”
IF YOU CAN’T MAKE A FUN AND INTERESTING CAPTAIN MARVEL FILM IT’S CAUSE YOU’RE FUCKIN LAZY AND SEXIST THX BYE
hoodiecap said: Cap visits a school assembly and they have him lead the pledge of allegiance but "under God" wasn't added until he went under the ice so he doesn't know that part so he doesn't say it and the next day all the headlines say "CAPTAIN AMERICA FORGETS GOD" and FoxNews freaks out.
oh my god
#fox news: captain america’s anti-god communist agenda #fox news: why does cap hate god? #fox news: cap has been henpecked by the left #media matters reports on facts regarding the pledge and the use of ‘under god’ #rachel maddow facepalms greatly and invites cap onto the show #fox news runs segment about captain america being bought by the leftist media like rachel maddow #which then gets mocked on tds #where jon stewart wants to know what hawkeye thinks about the national anthem and then says #oh right #no one cares about hawkeye
#the best thing about marvel being set in the real world is imagining the news coverage
The huge amount of pressure on young girls to let their boyfriends get away with everything and not to stand up for themselves, lest they stop being a ‘chill girlfriend’ and instead become a horrible, controlling harpy is such bullshit.
Stop teaching young girls that demanding to be treated with respect and courtesy makes them shrill, over-emotional, or unworthy of listening to.
one of my favorite simpsons gags of all time is still when lisa and grampa are at the table saying “i hate being old, no one listens to ya” “i hate being a kid, no one listens to ya” and homer walks in going “i’m a white male, age 18-49. everyone listens to me, no matter how dumb my suggestions are!” and fucking pulls out a can labeled “NUTS AND GUM - TOGETHER AT LAST!”
