Miracle heroes came and went. There were dozens of films, spin-offs of television series, countless toys and internet memes. With upcoming films such as Thor: Love and Thunder and Black Widow the cast of the Avengers are adding some new faces. Is there enough variety in Marvel's upcoming movies? That say fans on Twitter to p
Stage 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the most diverse yet
Every Marvel fan knows that the next wave of movies will include some new stories. From a Thor woman in Thor: Love and Thunder to Marvel's first open LGBTQ hero, Marvel Studios are working to diversify their occupations. This includes the offscreen crew – according to NBC News only one of Marvel's upcoming films is shot by a white man.
"It's about fresh voices and new voices and great filmmakers who can further steer the [Marvel Cinematic Universe] to new places," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in an interview after the studio's ComiCon panel. "And I'm as proud of this direction as you've seen it today."
Although these films will be "more diverse," they still contain stories of characters already featured in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. According to Marvel's ComiCon panel, Black Widow will finally get her origins story with Scarlett Johansson. Marvel will have his first Asian-American superhero. In addition, Marvel's first open LGBTQ character, Valkyrie, will be featured in this next phase.
"It's really interesting, because when we were looking for a director [for Black Widow you began to see some systemic issues issues," Johansson said during the ComiCon panel. "Even looking for a director who has enough experience – who had the opportunity to have the experience of sitting at the head of something so huge. And it's shit. "
Previously, there were films like & # 39; Black Panther & # 39; and 'Captain Marvel', some of Marvel's most lucrative films
films such as Black Panther and Captain Marvel brought more variety into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Black Panther was repeatedly awarded the Oscar as one of the highest-circulation Marvel films of all time. These include the best original music, the outstanding performance of a cast member in a movie and the best costume design. Captain Marvel was also successful at the box office and was the first female-led superhero movie to break $ 1 billion in ticket sales.
After the success of films that celebrated diversity, Marvel introduced more films in the fourth phase. This may not be a coincidence, according to some fans.
Some fans still do not believe the MCU offers enough variety
While some fans celebrate the upcoming variety in Marvel films, others do not pull their capes off Studio. The Twitter users said that the variety of Marvel films comes too late, if it is profitable for the company.
"Okay, so I'm not a big Marvel fan, but does anyone else feel a bit angry in this size? [Marvel Cinematic Universe] Until the third phase, they did not care about diversity or representation, and after making sure it was profitable, they announced the full variety for [phase four]? Said a Twitter user .
. "Why did Marvel wait until the fourth phase to make a change?" Because Marvel Entertainment's chairman, Ike Perlmutter, is a Conservative who had the last word at Marvel Studios in late 2015, until Disney gave Kevin Feige full control of the films "Developed under this Agreement," argued a Twitter user .
One of Marvel's upcoming films, Black Widow premiered on May 1, 2020 in the US.
