Analyzing the Avengers: Here Come the Girls
on Thursday, February 7, 2013
For the final installment of Analyzing the Avengers, Ursa takes a look at all the secondary and tertiary female characters that populate the Marvel Movie-verse. Why does Pepper wear those shoes? Who is Darcy written for? How does the narrative reward Dr. Foster for her career? And is Thor's wardrobe department awesome, or what? Some of these questions and more will be answered, as we talk about the brilliance of the Avengers ladypeople!* (*Not so much the two Betty Rosses. But still.)
Iron Man 2 (2010)
“I’m constantly getting the feeling I was supposed to study ahead of time for this movie.”Thor (2011)
Thor: God of Thunder. Prince of Asgard. KING OF CAPSLOCK. Kind of a prat. And capable of learning, growing, and inspiring little girls to dress up in armor and tutus.Better Call Saul: So, that was season one...
“Odds are, we’re going to be waiting at least three years or so before any of this matters.”Analyzing the Avengers: Agent Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D.
He's our awesome everyman who fights alongside the Avengers in a snappy suit. Today, Ursa takes on that most mild-mannered of badasses, Agent Phil Coulson, and discusses why Clark Gregg made Movieverse Coulson too adorable to live, along with sacrificial lambs, and death, destroyer of worlds.Secret Avengers is what Agents of SHIELD should have been
“It feels distinctly like the beginning; that one day, the name Ales Kot will be associated with something huge and fantastic, and we’ll look back at early issues of Secret Avengers and recall how we knew he was destined for greatness all along.”Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
“So there’s the real lesson of the movie: it’s what’s on the inside that counts, as long as the outside looks like Chris Evans on a five-hour-a-day workout regimen.”
