‘Stop and Fangirl’: The MCU & Diversity

Here at Fangirlish we continue to support your right to fangirl over any fandom you desire – whether that is a book, a TV show, a movie, or even sports. That’s why we have  Stop and Fangirl!  So you can feel  happy – and confident, loving whatever it is you love.

Join us as we embark on this adventure and try to provide fangirls (and boys) a place free of judgement – so you can let your fan flag fly!

In episode 28 we talk the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). All of us here love Marvel, and love superhero movies, but that does not mean the movies are perfect. The current MCU lineup has come a long way since Iron Man debuted in 2006, but there are many ways in which the franchise is still lacking – primarily in the representation of women and people of color.

This episode we talk films like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and how these are rarities in a world of superhero films predominately about white men. (And how directors and writers who are POC and women can only help the franchise improve). We also talk our favorite movies that have come out in the verse, and that Thor Ragnarok trailer that has us squealing!

So, without further ado…stop and fangirl with us! And when you’re done, come and tell us what movie you’re looking forward to most!
