Thank you! I forgot about Maria Hill.
(okay I feel like a dumbass but who are the POC characters that marvel cast as white?)
(were these recent crimes or are we going back to the pre-Iron Man era)
Jason Momoa and Manu Bennett at Florida Super Con
(pssssssst marvel you should riposte by casting manu bennett as namor)
(we already know he can pull off imposing and pithy while wearing manties)
dc cinematic universe superheroes and villains as of oct.16
(I feel like I need to apologize to Aquaman for saying he’s the Ant Man of the Justice League because he may be no one’s favorite but at least non-nerds probably know who he is while there are plenty of hardcore nerds who didn’t know who Ant Man was until Marvel announced his movie)
I have been watching Justice League cartoons a lot and I realized that the Justice League gives me this starry eyed hero worshipping high that the Avengers don’t.
I obviously love the Avengers, probably because I find all of them really relatable in their own ways, but fuck me the Justice League makes me want to sidekick so hard. They’re the heroes I really idolize, the ones that make me feel like an awestruck six year old.
Carol Danvers is the only Avenger who makes me feel the same way I feel when I look at Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter and John Stewart/GL.
…this is depressing me because I’m still so skeptical about DC pulling off a Justice League movie.

I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.
My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe."
