But just because the interest in Black Panther and Captain Marvel has reached a high point, doesn’t mean Feige and Marvel will alter their plans.
“I’ve always said we have our plan, and it’s served us very well,” he said. “There hasn’t been anything that has made us deviate or change from that based on opinions. Because opinions online change, and they alter, and are based on what limited information they have of behind the scenes.”
[x] CBR and Kevin Feige putting their faith in 100% straight white dudes for the rest of existence. Cause people calling out for diversity are just doing so on silly opinions that will change with the wind. (via buckybarnesdefenseleague)
Look, what Kevin F is basically saying here in so many words is, “its been proven that our model of “straight white dude saves the world” works so we’re not gonna change it cause diversity is just a fad anyway”
Like the god damn GALL of this man astounds me and people still want to defend Marvel/MCU for being oh so ~progressive~ they’re basically buying into Feige’s crap
He’s saying that there’s no need for more diverse stories/movies to be told/made because everyone will go and support their white hero no matter who he is. He’ll keep holding up the fact that there’s always a lady in the movies who does “stuff” in their movies to justify the fact that there’s no lady solo movie. He’ll keep justifying the fact that there’s no solo movie for any POC by holding up Nick Fury, Sam Wilson, and Rhodey and with a shrug of his shoulders he’ll say “isn’t this enough?” And that’s what he keeps saying. He keeps telling fans by not so subtly pointing towards these characters and saying “isn’t this enough?”
the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the affects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.
