I LOVE THIS BECAUSE NONE OF THEM ARE EMASCULATED OR FORCED TO BE BAD ASS OR STEREOTYPES THEY’RE JUST INDIVIDUALS WHO DO AWESOME SHIT AND HAPPEN TO BE FEMALE
You and me’ve always been like this. Always a little removed. Always… dreaming. Of higher, further, faster… more. Always more. We came into this world spittin’ mad, runnin’ full bore… To or from what, I ain’t never been able to tell. … the Lord put us here to punch holes in the sky.

if loki gets a solo movie before there’s a female lead movie in the mcu I will unhinge my jaw like a snake and literally eat kevin feige alive
#literally what i want #is for them to make a trailer for a ‘loki’ movie #where halfway through the trailer natasha comes in #punches him in the dick #takes the title card saying ‘loki’ and smashes it over her knee #and then writes ‘black widow’ on the screen in loki’s blood #this is it. this is my design
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN CINEMA HISTORY AN AMERICAN MADE MOVIE SWAPS FANATICAL PATRIOTISM FOR BASIC HUMAN DECENCY EVEN THOUGH THE MOVIE ITSELF IS CALLED CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THAT BUT MARVEL CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT pardon my capslock
I think that’s what’s so great about Steve. That he is what we as a country can only aspire to be. Kind of like how Superman inspires the human race, Captain America inspires his country to be better.
Let’s give it up for the nameless Command ladies!
Three of them actually have canonical names, even though only one is ever spoken aloud and the two other come from the credits (and only one is a first name as far as I can tell):
- The navigation officer who takes over when Chekov is assigned to the engineering is Darwin (Aisha Hinds).
- The operations officer who informs Sulu that the signal to the ship Kirk, Spock and Uhura used on Kronos cut out is Hannity (Amanda Foreman). At least that’s what Pike calls her in STXI – in STID she’s credited as “Ensign Brackett,” even though she’s played by the same actor, wears the same color uniform and mans the same station, which suggests that she is indeed meant to be the same character in both movies. Who knows, maybe Hannity got married? Or divorced and took back her maiden name? Just decided to change it for the heck of it? Or maybe the writers didn’t remember that she had a name already? We just don’t know.
- The alien officer is Madeline (Kimberly Broumand). An awfully Earth-sounding name if you ask me, which might be explained by the fact that it was likely never meant to be official – when she first appeared in STXI, she was called “Madeline” by the production team and make-up artist to distinguish her from the other alien characters. Broumand, working then under her maiden name Arland, didn’t receive credit for her part in STXI, but was credited as Madeline in STID.

Women in Sci Fi: I love it
If you could sit down with the writers of Thor 3 and request any scene or any arc for your character, what would you ask for? x
EVERYONE MOTHERFUCKING SHIPS IT
look, if they put kat dennings and tom hiddlestone ina scene theyll basically auto-vamp each other and a number of things will happen:
one: the film projector will catch fire
two: my head will explode
three: the sheer quantity o horrifying smutfic written three hours after the movies first showing will blot out the sun and cause a black hole to form in cyberspace from which nothing will escape
