Fate is not a factor

here’s how I think the leading lady MCU movies should happen:

  • obviously the Black Widow movie comes first, and it’s basically Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff versus Freddie Lounds Lara Jean Chorostecki as Yelena Belova and I don’t really care if they make Natasha her comic book age or not but some Bucky/Natasha backstory would be great thanks
  • next is a Captain Marvel movie in which Carol Danvers is an air force pilot who encounters alien technology that gives her superpowers, the movie addresses the misogyny women face in the armed forces and male-dominated spaces in general, she gets dishonorably discharged preferably for pissing off powerful men but probably for independently investigating the aforementioned alien technology and at the end Sharon Carter approaches her to talk about the Avengers Initiative, also the whole movie foreshadows the Kree invasion and Chewie is prominently featured
  • then She-Hulk, of course, in which Jennifer Walters is an assistant district attorney working on a high profile mob case and after she gets brutally attacked the hospital calls her cousin Bruce Banner to give her a blood transfusion, which he reluctantly does, and he sidekicks her while she cracks the case and destroys the mobsters and we get more backstory re: his abusive father and the root of his anger issues, the movie also addresses body image issues and at the end Jennifer decides to go green, literally, and after the credits we learn that the doctor who treated her was Michael Morbius, who injects himself with a serum he concocted using a sample of her blood taken after she miraculously healed because he thinks it’ll cure his porphyria, and this foreshadows the inevitable vampire-slaying team up with oodles of incredulity and pop culture references, also at some point Jennifer mentions her ex-boyfriend Luke Cage, because they’re making a Luke Cage tv series
  • they’re also making a Jessica Jones tv series so we’ll see how that goes, but I’d like it if they skipped the creepy Purple Man storyline and since we’re not actually going to get that Captain Marvel movie Carol Danvers should be in it and Chewie should be prominently featured
  • my kingdom for a Spider-Woman movie in which teenage Jessica Drew is released from HYDRA induced cryogenic stasis after SHIELD falls with one goal: to assassinate Nick Fury (this would ideally come on the heels of The Winter Soldier, obviously, but that is not the world in which we live) who flees to Tromsø and ends up hanging out with Thor, Jane and Darcy while Jessica escalates, and then of course he eventually apprehends her and takes her back to Stark Tower for deprogramming and rehabilitation and after he explains how he adopted the girl who tried to kill him Clint is just like “so I guess you made a different call”
  • also Jennifer Walters and Jessica Jones and Jessica Drew should all be WoC because as much as I love the ladies of the MCU they’re all white women and that should change
  • and I’m still bitter they didn’t make Janet van Dyne a founding member of the Avengers in the MCU and I know she’s going to be in Ant-Man but I’m not over it I’ll never be over it okay bye

If you are a white woman and you want to call yourself a feminist, you must acknowledge that your whiteness affords you a privilege that shields you from a lot. You must also acknowledge that you are afforded privileges that some men in this country do not have. Racism and sexism are tightly intertwined. You cannot fight one while ignoring the other.

i just realized that maria hill reports directly to fury and natasha reports directly to fury and melinda may reports directly to fury and they’re the only ones we see regularly speaking to him

all three of director fury’s closest lieutenants are women how metal is that

    

Nick Fury knows what’s up.
