Kevin Feige, mastermind of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, on plans for Black Panther and Captain Marvel movies:

"And certainly, it’s a question I get asked more than anything else. More than ‘Iron Man 4,’ more than ‘Avengers 3,’ and that’s sort of the first time that’s really happened to us, so I think that makes a difference. I think that’s something that we have to pay attention to. … I’ve always said we have our plan, and it’s served us very well. There hasn’t been anything that’s made us deviate or change from that based on an opinion, because opinions online change. They alter and they’re based on limited information they have to what’s going on behind the scenes. But in this particular case, I think it is a groundswell, and I think it means something substantial."

Yeah, dude. It means we’ve seen plenty of white dudes from the Marvel U. Time for some other folk!

Um, also, can we keep this Black Panther theme song? Maybe? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BeGSNyYeQJs

Also, Katee Sackhoff really should be Captain Marvel. Just saying…

I don’t know how I feel about a movie that “tracks the young writer as she writes her seminal novel and is drawn into a Faustian bargain with her own ‘monster’ of an alter ego, who offers literary fame at a desperate personal cost”…

BUT, Sophie Turner (aka Sansa Stark) as young Mary Shelley is great casting. Better than Elle Fanning, who has been cast in the other upcoming Mary Shelley movie, A Storm in the Stars. Although I do like that title…

Either way, these movies better depict her as the incredibly brilliant and complex woman she was, and not reduce her to some wan, angst-ridden, simpering doll who accidentally writes a good book.
