"Carol Danvers isn’t walking in the male Captain Marvel’s shadow — Captain Marvel is a job that Carol Danvers has earned entirely on her own, and a job that she’s proven a woman can do as well as any man — if not a damn sight better."
CAPTAIN MARVEL: BETTER THAN EVERY OTHER SUPERHERO, HANDS-DOWN.
Also I like Katee Sackhoff for Captain Marvel, I guess, but you guys, come on. Carol is a COLONEL. You are not going to slap that title on a twenty-something and make it believable. You aren’t. My father retired as a full-bird colonel from the Air Force at the ripe age of 50, and he had a jump in rank because he entered as an officer post-med school. Guess who else in the Marvel U is a Colonel? RHODEY. How old is Rhodey, do you think? Easily 40, or older.
I don’t want an early-twenty-something as Carol. I want a full-grown woman who can take you to the cleaners. I know there’s got to be more 40-something actresses working in Hollywood than Julianne Moore or Uma Thurman. (Nicole Kidman doesn’t have what it takes to convince me she could atomize me with the force of her badassness, sorry). What I WANT is Sigourney Weaver at her prime, but obviously that’s not going to happen.
AND LET’S BE HONEST, NEITHER IS A 40-YEAR-OLD SUPERHEROINE. Fuck you and your age double standard, Hollywood. That said, I would punch every baby in this state on national television for a Captain Marvel movie. ARE YOU LISTENING MARVEL?
