The Heroic Women of Marvel

The Infinity Saga has come to an end with Avengers: EndgameEndgame truly was a culmination of the previous twenty-one movies before the Avengers finale, highlighting nearly every character that has placed a stamp on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including the powerful women.

Today I will celebrate these extraordinary heroines by looking at their thrilling involvement in Endgame and where their stories are heading for the future. Enjoy!

The Ancient One

The Ancient One’s role in Endgame was slight but impactful as we got to see her protecting the New York Sanctum during the Battle of New York and schooling Bruce Banner in the seriousness of tampering with the past. It was delighting to see her again after her being gone for so many years and even though she is a permanently dead character her wisdom will always be felt in the MCU.

Who’s Your Favorite Female Avenger?

Remember The Avengers? It was 2012, Marvel Studios was about to release their most audacious undertaking yet, and the only female Avenger at the time was Black Widow, a fact that never escaped me. Fast forward seven years and the number of powerful women in this franchise is nothing short of fascinating.

And what makes it even greater, it’s a diverse array of female heroes to cheer for, meaning every girl can find someone they identify with.

So, for this week’s Who’s Your Favorite?, I thought it would be perfect to have them be the topic for this week. Enjoy!

Pepper Potts

If you told me years ago that Pepper Potts would end up becoming an Avenger I would’ve laughed. Turns out, it actually happened and I couldn’t be happier.

Black Widow

Black Widow, a Russian assassin turned S.H.I.E.L.D agent turned Avenger, has one of the most compelling stories in the MCU. A story that will only expand and become more interesting next May when we finally get to see Black Widow.

Is ‘Thor: Love and Thunder’ Going To Be a Romantic Comedy?

It was announced on Saturday that the fourth Thor film would be called Thor: Love and Thunder and would feature Natalie Portman as female Thor. Tessa Thompson revealed that Valkyrie’s ready to find a queen. On Sunday I had an epiphany. Thor: Love and Thunder is writing itself as a romantic comedy. Think about it.

Taika Waititi likes to subvert movie genres into a superhero format. Thor: Ragnarok was practically a buddy comedy and for Thor: Love and Thunder Taika Waititi has totally set up a love triangle, hence it will most likely be a romantic comedy wrapped around a superhero story.

Thor totally digs both of these powerful women, Valkyrie kind of likes Thor but more as a friend than anything but she may be impressed by the new and improved Jane, and Jane, well, she already dumped Thor so who knows how she feels about him.

All in all, Taika Waititi is going to make another zany superhero film that’s certain to please the masses and I’m definitely intrigued.

Do you like the idea of Thor: Love and Thunder being a romantic comedy? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments below.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

A Concept Look at Valkyrie, Queen of Asgard

For the past two days, I’ve shared with you fantastic artwork created by my sister depicting some rather cool fan art material but, as I promised, there was more to come. One of the coolest characters to debut in recent years has been Valkyrie. Preceding Avengers: Endgame she had only made an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok but she quickly stole the show with her drunken, no-nonsense awesomeness. When she didn’t play a role in Infinity War I was expectedly devastated but her small but perfect inclusion in Endgame was worth every second.

Especially that surprising twist involving Thor crowning Valkyrie as the new ruler of Asgard. Um..whoa. Definitely didn’t see that coming. It was an incredible surprise and one that has had me beaming with excitement about her character moving forward ever since. And I’m not the only one, for my sister has drawn a concept of Valkyrie as Queen of Asgard and it is pretty darn cool. Here it is.

Um…heck yeah! I love that the design stays true to her classic look but, of course, there’s the extra flair. Oh my goodness, I love Valkyrie and I am so freaking excited to see her again as Queen of Asgard in the coming years.

And this picture is only building my excitement. Wow, wow, wow. 😍

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a brilliant day.

Throwback Friday: Should There Be An All-Female Avengers Movie and Who Should Be In It?

Over the years there has been a fascinating increase of female superheroes in the MCU. There has been such a rise of awesome heroines in this franchise in fact that Tessa Thompson, who plays the role of Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok, said that there should be an all-female Avengers movie. A group of actresses even went as far as to approach the top people in Marvel about the idea. And now, after that incredible scene in Avengers: Endgame featuring every (alive) heroine the thought of an Avengers movie featuring only women doesn’t seem so far-fetched after all. So, should there be an Avengers movie that highlights our favorite heroic heroines? Um…yeah!

We’ve seen progress in how women are portrayed in superhero movies. Wonder Woman got her first solo film in 2017 which featured not only the first female superhero to get her own movie but it had a female director at the helm as well. It ended up making just a little north of $800 million, proving that women could drive people to the movie theaters. Ant-Man and the Wasp wouldn’t collect as much money as Wonder Woman but it garnered highly positive reviews, many citing Wasp as a fantastic co-lead to Paul Rudd’s humorous Ant-Man. And Captain Marvel proved that Wonder Woman‘s success wasn’t a fluke as it made over a billion dollars at the box-office this spring.

Why shouldn’t Marvel take things to the next level by introducing a movie featuring a group of heroes that consists of only women. We saw what that could look like in Avengers: Endgame and it was legitimately awesome. But who should be a part of this heroic team? Well, that’s what I’m here to share with you. Enjoy!
