With the announcement of Brie Larson officially joining the Marvel Universe as Captain Marvel, female comic book fans are jumping for joy. Girls have been waiting for a long time for representation in comics and film. It is our time.
There are finally female heroes with Gamora from Guardians of the Galaxy, Black Widow from the Avengers, Peggy Carter from Captain America (yes, Peggy is a hero!), and Negasonic Teenage Warhead from Deadpool. Even by some miracle, we are getting stand alone movies for our female heroes; Wonder Woman, Captain Marvel, and even a Harley/Birds of Prey movie.
By releasing these movies are telling little girls out there, that it is okay to like comic books and “boy” things.
