"Cap and Black Widow are are very different people. It’s kind of like this odd pairing. She has very questionable morality, and she makes a living, lying. Cap couldn’t do it, if he tried." - Chris Evans

Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.
The image above was created from gathering all of the significant named characters from released Marvel Studios movies as documented on the Marvel Movies wikia.
It’s pretty sad. As you can see, only 22% of the characters are women and half of them are love interests. There are over twice as many supporting characters who are men than women (and none of them function as love interests like the women do.) 84% of the characters are white.
- 60% of the characters are white men, including all the main characters
- 77%of the characters are men
- 76% of the men are white
- 81% of the characters (both genders) are white
- All of the women are white
- Allof the characters of color are men
- None of the characters are women of color
Out of all the films, Thor probably does the best in introducing diverse side characters. Natalie Portman and Kat Denning’s characters pass the Bechdel test within the first five minutes, and some of the Asgardians are played by people of color including Idris Elba’s Heimdall and Tabano Asano’s Hogun. Four white women characters are introduced instead of the other films’ average of one or two. But even then, there’s no question that the main characters of the film are Thor and his brother Loki.
Marvel is working off of decades of existing properties that for years solely focused on white men and a the demographic market of white men. So it makes sense that many of the films would have an abundance of white male characters. Beyond ratios, what doesn’t make sense is that even in the comics there is also an abundance of characters of color, etc. that they are ignoring or underutilizing. There are already five completed films where the titular character is a white man, with more to come. There are no films in the works where the titular character is a person of color or a woman.
Women made up at least 40% of the audience of The Avengers, yet only one out of the six Avengers–Black Widow–was a woman. Women also made up 40% of attendees at this year’s ComicCon. Why, given the scarcity of female heroic leads in the existing Marvel films, did Marvel choose to announce the addition of several more male characters but only one new female character?

Tony, quit ruining the moment! (Steve is sarcastic and easily embarraaaaaaassed)
I’m through with my mom right now holy shit.
She’s treating my quitting my job as some sort of statement that “I don’t need money” and now she’s going out of her way to make me pay for everything on my own.
I quit my job because I was burned out, I hated it, it made me depressed and caused me back pain, and I felt like shit whenever I went. Now that I don’t have an income
which was minimum wage anyway, she’s literally trying to not help me out.
I wanted to get tickets for a show next March and I asked if it could be partially paid for as an early birthday present
since I’d need to buy the tickets now before they sell out and she responded with “You could probably get your job back.”
I HAVE NEVER TRIED TO MOOCH, I’VE NEVER TRIED TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF HER, I ALWAYS TRY TO BE AS APPRECIATIVE AS I CAN FOR WHATEVER SHE PROVIDES, AND I’M JUST IN A REALLY FRAGILE STAGE RIGHT NOW AND I COULDN’T HANDLE HAVING A JOB AND SHE DOESN’T UNDERSTAND THAT SO SHE’S MAKING EVERYTHING PURPOSELY HARDER FOR ME.
