“From the early 1950s through the fall of the Soviet Union, the Red Room was a training program in Moscow. One of the many arms of Department X, the KGB’s experimental science division. It’s where Natasha was raised… where she earned the rank of Black Widow… and where, in the late 1950s, she met me. Back when neither she nor I knew exactly who I was.”
(Winter Soldier - 07)
Remember the whole “Fake Geek Girl” Meme? You know, where women who admitted they liked geeky stuff were accused of being fakers.
That’s was stupid, wasn’t it?
Real Geek Girl and Lithuanian model, Giedre Dukauskaite, is spending NY Fashion week biding her time by reading comics.
In an interview in with DNAInfo NY the model says she is reading Batman: City of Owls and that’s she loved comics since she was a kid. A quick look at her Instagram account shows that she is a Batman fan.
Women. Comics. EVERYWHERE!
poetryondemand asked: A dude friend demanded I "name one" female superhero who could head her own movie. I gave him a list. He said he hadn't heard of any, so they couldn't be A-listers. I said Captain Marvel, Black Widow, She-Hulk are solo titles. He said they still "couldn't handle" a solo movie. I gave up. (btw he also made several factual errors that, if he'd been a girl, the other dudes would've crucified him for, but they didn't say anything.) What are we supposed to do?
Kill him and eat him in front of the others. It’s the only way they learn.
Reminder that Iron Man wasn’t “A-list” before his first movie.
New Animated Marvel Movie Stars Black Widow (And Features Captain Marvel too)
While some animated superhero comics don’t want you to know that a woman is in the lead, it seems Marvel doesn’t care.Marvel’s Avengers Confidential: Black Widow and Punisher, out March 25, will have the two characters teaming up after Punisher is taken into custody by S.H.I.E.L.D. They’re up against a new terrorist organization called “Leviathan” that has been stealing S.H.I.E.L.D. tech.
The film also features, as seen above, the Captain Marvel version of Carol Danvers in her Jamie McKelvie costume.
Natasha is voiced by Jennifer Carpenter.
Important points about what I know about Ant-Man (which is by no means exhaustive or detailed). Additional points in brackets, which you can skip over if you like.
"He just lurches about having breakdowns and being awful IDK." is basically the best/most accurate description of Hank Pym ever. Also, this is a good primer if you are confused about Ant-Man.
